I work at Dart warz, and i wanted a really cool sword to use, i thought it was a foam sword with a pvc pipe in the middle of it, capable of hitting someone in the body without it hurting. The sword was very bent even as i opened the package. I was debating on sending it back but my little brother wanted the sword. I especially typed in the party city page nerf swords and that is what i saw that i liked. Wish i looked into more i suppose.
