Darts on the blowpipe
That's how you protect clothes and skin from sharp arrows

My small Q-10-04-1.5-G block magnets inspired the following idea. Since they are so small I attached 8 magnets in a row with duct tape behind the handle piece on the blowpipe.
Important: With other coatings, e.g. leather, you have to use stronger magnets, since there will be a greater distance between magnet and dart.
The next time (or after my next magnet order) I would make two rows of magnets next to each other. This way, each dart would be held twice and stay even better in the desired angle.
I had a leather bracelet and a Q-40-10-05-N cube magnet left over, so I tried an alternative dart storage. I glued the magnet under the leather bracelet and covered it up with a piece of leather. I did not want to have the magnet directly on my skin to protect it from corrosion.
This magnet is clearly stronger and holds the darts even through the thick leather without problems.
Which way is better? It depends:
When you have the darts on your bracelet there is little danger of getting pierced during a round.
If you attach the darts to your pipe, you can just put it in a corner during a break and drink a beer safely. You can also hand over the pipe to a fellow shooter and he gets the right darts with it.
