How many sets of darts you've bought before finding the perfect set?
For me I like new things. Which is stupid. But I seem like it doesn't matter if a set is perfect for me. I want something new every so often.

According to Terry Jenkins, the dart does not matter.  The player gets used to the dart irrespective of what he uses.  

Taking this to heart, I've decided to use a set of smooth darts.  The reason is that there is no grip to wear out.  The grip on the darts that were most successful for me wore out in no time.

I have my 5th set on its way to me, I started with heavier darts and have worked my way down to 21g with long slim barrels, my perfect dart.

Past 60 set mark already, only play with a few but addicted to trying more darts. Mostly use my Hellfires, Dragons and Wades ( all modified ) more concerned with throwing consistently without knee pain. May have to stop reading Darren's reviews and looking at new product launches though LOL.

I would say around 5.

I used the winmau ones I got with the board, then I pushed the boat out and got some brass RVB ones, realised they were testicle, bought myself some Robert Thornton 26g (which I'm trying to sell on eBay if anyone's interested) and the knurled point left big holes on my board, so after those I bought some dragonfly's from RedDragon. This felt weird so I got some Chizzy's last Christmas. I love those darts but thought I'd try something different, opted for Winmau Sniper and now I differentiate between the two Smile

I currently have six sets, but have likely discarded 3-4 others over the years, so lets call it 10 sets so far . . .

I bought about 6 or 7 sets before trying the Unicorn Phase 2's.

Dart World Piranha's, Target Adrian Lewis, Target Precision Discovery, Target Storm, Unicorn John Lowe, Unicorn Phase 6.

Wasn't sure what my dart was until I finally received the Phase 2's Purists.

Everything about the Phase 2's just seem right for me. The length, the feel, the weight. They just tend to go where I throw them.

It's going to take a hell of a dart to ever replace them.

The problem with darts is that they don't take up much space. They aren't really too expensive. If you're as undisciplined as I am, it's easy to buy, buy, buy!

The next set is THE set, I'm sure.

Well said BigE.

I am starting to entertain that thought about smooth darts.  If they have too much grip I always have trouble releasing.
But the ones that hit that sweet spot for me start losing some of their grip after a couple of weeks which starts to affect my throw. Aargh!
Currently throwing 20g Wades badly at an Eclipse Pro
