Has anyone used Ear plugs as Stefans?

As the title suggests, has anyone used Ear plugs as make-shift stefans because I was wondering where  to get some that fit Nerf barrels/OMW recon barrel mod.

The easiest way to get 'stefans' in the UK is to cut down existing darts, though for the style of games we generally run in the UK, short darts are pointless

You can also buy Foam Backer Rod in 13mm size.
Stefans are pointless under 150fps, use a decent dart like a koosh or waffle tip instead. Saves converting all your magazines as well, or buying new ones. The Recon is never going to get the kind of power needed for stefans to be required.
FBR if you want to try it.

Thanks for the link and quick replies, I will check it out. When you say that the recon can't get the power, do you mean with upgraded springs as well?

The only way a Recon is going over 130fps is with an airtank in it. They are zero use for modding. My advice would be to buy a Retaliator instead. Fit a 5kg BSUK spring and it will trash any OMW kit, right up to a fully sealed breech.  The best you will get out of a Recon is about 80-90fps and then it will break the back off its plunger tube as well as not firing modern darts very well. There's a reason you won't find N Strike mods on the site very much, many use the homeless reverse plunger design for the internals, making them very inefficient and not worth modding.
