I generally use the North Star ones: link

They have a flat leaf-shaped head and I cut them to length.

This is the video that convinced me to use broom bristles for pikes, lances, spears, etc. My only regret is not doing it sooner: YouTube link

These are 100mm but are dirt cheap and can be cut down with wire cutters. I have used these for years.

And Old Glory carries them: link Just the size you're needing.

North Star all the way. I cut them down for 15mm troops, too, using the offcut bits for pinning minis and such.

North Star has become prohibitively expensive at £8.00 GBP per 40. I am curious about the above suggested darts.

Huh- I don't remember them being anywhere near that expensive…
