Dark Thunders vs Spectres - tacoj0e - 05-15-2019

I'm looking to get either the Designa Dark Thunder or Spectre's in 24g.  They're very simlar darts except for the grip so I was wondering which one dart is grippier.  Dark Thunder seems like an average grip, according to Getagrip's review, and Spectre's seem a less grippy. 

I'm looking for something a little less grippy so right now I'm leaning toward the Spectre's.

If anybody has some insights into these grips that would help a lot.

Thanks.

I removed the paint on my dark thunders and it made them very grippy, Never tried the other dart you mentioned.

I forgot the Spectres come in a few different grips, I mean these ones:  https://www.dartscorner.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=9_234_1880&products_id=15258

Thanks for the feedback Mackem!

Havent ever held these Spectres but the "hero" grip on the Thunders is my most favourite grip. I prefer the original grip on Unicorn Phase 2 Taylors. The one on the Gary Anderson Phase 3 darts is very similar, just a bit softer. The Dark Thunder grip on 20g version that I had a few years ago was very similar to the one on the Taylors. There are also darts with a seemingly similar grip - Designa Ultralites, however Ultralites are really sticky. Which I like too, they're only available in lighter weights though. I've got the 17g ones.

I bet you'll be happy either way; personally I'd take the Spectre. SLIGHTLY slimmer and nearly a full mm shorter, if you can trust DC measurements.
I don't love darts over about 51 mm; I get more fish tailing darts if I go over.


RE: Dark Thunders vs Spectres - tacoj0e - 05-15-2019

Yeah I'm definitely leaning toward Spectre as the Dark Thunders grip is sounding pretty grippy.

Just get both, you know you deserve some new darts
