The rope dart or rope javelin, originally developed as a Chinese martial arts weapon, is also now used for flow arts and fire spinning. This is my comprehensive guide on how to choose or DIY a practice rope dart that works for your body, movement style, and budget.
I've taught rope dart workshops at Pacific Fire Gathering and Firedrums, and darted with and analyzed just about every flatlock webbing or conventional leash I could get my hands on. My dart movement style is primarily contact-based, but this guide includes ample considerations for different darting styles.
