1. Visiting is unfortuntaley not possible. We do not have a showroom and the manufacturing is not able to have visitors due to liability and the fact that CNC machinery is considered dangerous by the insurance companies, visitors can cause an insurance issue, Sorry!! Sad
2. The New Voks Overlord was in production and design process for more than 6 months. The owner thought the design through and it developed and changed a little through a lot of research and testing, which in return turned out to be Awesome!!
3. We learned a lot during the process. The Overlord is too time consuming to ever be a main stream product. We will probably integrate the features in future darts.
4. Good Question, we are always open trade free darts for free money!! Cool
5. We are always thinking ahead and some of those features might be implemented, keep everyone posted.
6. Anything is possible, BUT.... our "Design your own Dart" is coming up March 1st, so name it what you want!!!!! Blush

Thanks Christine, nice to have you here to answer the questions, I can definitely see things about the Overlord that should work well in future darts. It would be nice if it could be made cheaper as I think it would be a big seller. Smile

This is a topic that has come up multiple times on the forum and figured I would ask your opinion on this trend.

Just to let you know, I'm American and used to attend a lot of soft tip tournaments but now play strictly steel tip.

Why do you think Americans love knurled darts so much? To me a knurled dart is kind of like the Target Carrera type grip.....you either love or dislike it.
When I go to a lot of soft tip matches, I see 75% of the throwers using some type of knurled dart.
When I go to the steel tip matches, I would say it's easily 50% of the players using knurled darts.

If you go outside the US to Europe and Asia, you see knurling is a lot less common. I can only think of two pros that use knurling: Kim Huybrechts and Robert Thornton.

If you look at the other American dart companies, I would guess at least 50-75% of their dart lines have some type of knurling mix or completely knurled.

In Asia, if you look at the majority of the Japanese/Korean darts, they almost all have a torpedo type shape built for a rear gripper.

In your opinion, why do you think Americans love knurled darts so much? Is it because we grew up on that grip and we're just used to it?

Looking at your selection I see you have quite a mix...definitely a wider mix of grip types than other US companies and you seem to be one of the last US companies making an effort to innovate/try new shapes/designs/grips. I look at some of your competitor's products (especially an umbrella brand with a 3 letter acronym name) and I swear it's the same stuff for the past 20 years...it's the same with another company that produces a popular "spider" model dart. Their selection/models haven't changed for 20 years.

Guess I'm looking at this with more of a sociological background....why specific regions prefer certain products, why a vast percentage of people in one region use a grip stye that isn't as prevalent overseas even though it's the same exact game.

Any thoughts on the Americans and their love of knurling? And do you find your knurled darts are some of most consistent sellers?

Thanks...sorry for such an odd question. Figured it would be interesting to see your view/thoughts as a manufacturer.

In the future are there plans to add METRIC measurements of your darts to the site to help customers get a better idea of what they're looking for?

1. You mentioned about the realization re: length of time that you invest in creating the Overlord. Are you contemplating in stopping its production?

2. Do you "modify" Voks darts i.e. adding some grips, weights, changing coating or re-coating, etc.? Is there a standard cost of service that you can share?

3. I'm so interested in the "design your darts" project coming this March.

4. May I suggest that infos re: Voks darts dimensions be made available in you website. I would like to voluneer my time and service in doing that for you. So please send all those Voks darts to me. Smile I'll take care of the ruler and weighing scale.

I appreciate the time you devote in entertaining our inquiries in this forum.

Thanks for this special Voks-Nutz partnership.

And I'm looking forward to having a DartsNutz Zone 2 created by Voks in the near future.

(I just coined the term Zone because "Phases" and "Gens" are brand titles from other dart manufacturers.)

PS: Why did Darren call you "Christine"? Smile Smile Smile

Yeah, that's a big one for me. Nothing worse than seeing 4 days all listed as having 1/4" diameter barrels and knowing full well they're all different. I can pick up a set of darts and usually know the width within .10-20mm just by feel. It makes a difference.

Knurled darts are still very popular. I do however think it will changes a little do to the bigger selection of non knurled darts.

Knurling does have some advantages over a smooth surface, specially for people with bigger hands.
When you are holding on a knurled surface you are in touch with a smaller surface area than when you are touching a smooth surface, that is a benefit when you are releasing the dart.
But it is also a matter of preferences and what you are use to. Knurled darts been around so long, that people are use to them and and go with what they know.

Thank you
