heavy darts whats your experience - NiteEyez - 10-09-2013

Hi guys

Ive seen some 32g phase 5 types and wanted to know your experiences?


RE: heavy darts whats your experience - Getagrip - 10-09-2013

thats heavy! I dont get a long with the phase 5 26g so 32g would be overkill for me!

I throw 26'rs and they are considered heavy, dont know why cuz if you take all the weights available they are more mid range, I havent had the chance to throw anything heavier but maybe one day I will, Heavy darts tend not to drop off pace as they travel to the board.

Maybe look at Leighton Rees Cobras

A lot seems to depend on the balance and aerodynamics of the specific dart. A friend of mine throws 30's (straight barrel) and I'm very comfortable with them even though I normally throw 22's (also straight barrel). But I have a set of bomb-style 22's that seem to require way more effort, and even with that they tend to dive-bomb.

heavy darts- love them - I normally shoot 26gm straight barrel. Notice Taylor shoots 26gm- Hamilton 25 gm - Barney 25gm just to name a few.

Very typical, response from a very funny Rabsmith lol.

My new Andy Hamilton's plus my short brass shafts and flights weigh in at 27.5 gms. They arc when thrown is very flat and very true as mentioned in earlier posts, there is no doubt in my mind that the flatter arc of a heavier dart is more stable in the air, no fish tailing or high loops. My son filmed them yesterday when I was practicing using the ipad video and I was surprised how shallow they flew.

Cheers,

Dorian

yep inertia.
even the softest thrower can get a good arc
It makes me wonder how good some of these pros could be without there stubbornness.
Taylor for example traded a strait barrel for a bullet in 98ish cus he WANTED to better himself after becoming 10 time'ish world champion. And that what's makes him a champoin/prick

The traditional aspect of sticking with the one set of darts can bite one in the @rss

+ speeking of heavy darts I think that until they make a softip board that will accommodate a 26'ish dart, then they will have to wait an extra decade to FULLY bring electric softy girly darts into the real world of people who are not embarrassed to throw "weighted" darts because that is what is expected of them.

Besides Barney, Phil, Hamilton and the like

Hi guys

Sorry to 'bump' an old thread.

Its really bizaare with my darts team. I showed them my 26g whitlocks & they were like "god there light". I was like ????? However there all lobbing 30g +. One guy we were playing this week was lobbing a 40g one. I didnt get a chance to try but they flew great (for him).

It has made me think tho. Would love to try a 30g+ if anyone has any going?

While heavier darts have their advantages(can be more forgiving)... The disadvantages ruin them for me. Hard to group, damage board more... I've throw everything from 17g to 32g... my happy zone is 22-24 depending on style
