First, great points by Gerg IMHO (We have experienced the 2 dart scenario)

Re: Swordfish
We have at least 1000ft of paracord (no heavy rope anywhere).
Just a suggestion:
Have your ball already connected. When all hell is breaking loose you don't want to be holding, let alone, messing with the rope or clip. Also, just as FYI, we had a strobe light on the ball. Much easier to see at night. Further, and I realize I may sound like grandpa, but be very diligent to know where people are, their feet and darts/ropes. Have an orchestrated plan.

On an aside from previous mention. To quote many, bad things happen with swords and cleats.
