Thats one way to do it, but not what I would recommend. I'll explain. Generally most guys when they go out hunting don't take 50-100 shots before going after prey. When ever you go from one blow gun length to a blow gun of a different length there is an adjustment that has to be made. It takes a while to get used to. Your sighting radius is different with each there for your point of impact will also be different. Bowing a shorter tube is harder to get high velocities than with a longer tube. And it takes 50-100 darts minimum (for me) to make that adjustment each time.'ve also found for practice that long really doesn't help. In fact 3-4 feet is all you need for indoor shooting. Add on the extra when your going hunting. At least that has been my experience.
I agree. 5 foot two piece is the way to go.I will use my 5 foot indoors right down to 2 yards. I just make a smaller target to shoot at as it takes just as much skill to hit a small target up close as it does to hit a larger one farther away. I have no problem with breaking darts what so ever. Roibin Hooding the darts is another matter...............necesitating the need to shoot one dart at one target and shooting each dart at it's own sepparate target so as not to skewer them.
I have both the CS models 5 foot two piece and the 4 foot Pro. Each has benefits over the other but really, aside from the mouthpieces I can't fault either of them and really like them both. I have been using the 5 foot more simply because I am so used to a 5 foot length but I still find myself picking up the 4 footer for the quick shot like a dog rooting through the trash or a cat taking a dump in my yard.......stuff like that. I really don't like going back and forth from one lenth to another like that as it throws off my shooting. But I am still trying to settle on ONE all around BG. It will probably end up being the 5 foot two piece both because of it being 5 feet rather than 4 and also because of the fact that it is easy to take pretty much anywhere because it breaks down into 4 pieces counting the coupler and mouth piece.
