yah i just can't seem to stop looking at different barrels. good to know I'm not the only equipment junkie.
one year in golf i ran through 4 different drivers in one season until i found the right one...

i got to try about a dozen darts in my local dart specialty store so i think i got the right ones...until i start get bored and start looking again.

this might be a topic for another thread but I'm gonna ask anyways...
any recommendations for a good online store for soft tip darts in the US or Canada?


Look into our forum sponsors and supporters. Can't go wrong with any of them.

For my soft tips I usually go through world darts. A lot of hard to find in US selection especially for the prices. Shipping is also cheap and fast to US.

I've got about a dozen sets and have settled on one set for my main darts. I like to experiment with different sets, but after I tried the main barrel types I settled on one style. But if a set catches my eye I'll have a go. I have yet to try the Wolframs or the Stealths and I'd like to try that type of barrel out.
Darts is like sex. When it's good, it's great. When it's bad, it's still pretty good.

I think there has been some good points on here (see what I did there) in that if you are throwing badly you start looking at the possible reasons, after ruling out form issues then it has to be equipment and as a set of darts is relatively cheap new sets are bought......usually for the wrong reasons...

In archery (I shoot at County level and I'm currently ranked 70th in the UK for 2014) its the same but the difference is a quality bow will cost around £1000 and a set of match arrows around £500 for a dozen so its not so easy to buy some points....what it does teach you is that it is rarely the equipment at fault (unless it has developed a fault) so you have to work out what the issue is because unless you are very fortunate and have lots of spare income you can't go out and buy a new setup every time you shoot bad, in the beginning I did exactly that and went through 5 different bows each time convincing myself that the next one would shoot better.... now I shoot a bow that is deemed out of date with arrows that are two seasons old which most of the other archers deem a sacrilege....but I shoot at a consistent high level, when I get into the doldrums I fall back on practice and drilling my form, breaking down each piece of the action whether it be a throw or drawing back a bow they are all made up of different phases and transitions, then you work on each phase and drill it until you are either sick of doing it or you've worked through the problem. It can take the fun out of it but it depends what you want back, high scores or good fun.

I used my archery knowledge as a baseline and have learned that once I'm comfortable with a set of darts if I then start throwing badly I will throw through it no matter how long it takes and it will comeback, sometimes quickly sometimes not so quick.

I used to be good with a certain weight and a certain type of barrel (John Lowe's 21g plain tungsten) but after a 15 year gap I came back and couldn't throw them worth a dam, so the search has begun....
