Find me a dart
Right lads im after a set of darts around 22 or 23g. Must be fairly grippy at the end of the barrell where it meets the stem. Must be a lenghty one aswell aaround 50mm. Wez Newtons darts are the closest I've seen to what im after but unfortunately there out of my price range. Any one send me in the right direction?

I'd check out Designa darts range on DC they cover most popular specs.
Or data darts Icon range at Madhouse, nice darts and you can get 10% discount from here.
Just ask a mod for code.

If you can afford them, go for the One80 Bavaria UM, nice grip on entire barrell, 55mm long x 5.65mm width. I use 20g and they are a quality dart. tapered nose so easy on flights, i am a cosmo user also.

Look at Hi-Tec/Tommy's brand at Pure Darts

They have some nice ones. I have a set of 21g Tommy's Vice.

I've been racking my brain trying to find you a dart (I honestly love trying to search out specific darts lol) and the closest thing I could find so far is the Winmau Sabotage.

Now it appears the even numbered weighted Sabotages have a standard style grip with a smooth section before the stem.

The odd weighed Sabotages have a small smooth section in the center a razor grip that runs almost to the stem. Only site I could find that sells the odd weighed version is DC. A180 only sells the even weighted models and Pure is more expensive.

Nothing is wrong in my opinion, it's what is comfortable to you....most natural is where you will find success, again IMO

Grip all the way to the back, and also on the stem:

Unicorn Gripper CG: http://www.dartscorner.co.uk/product_inf...s_id=22341

Or any dart like these with grips all the way to the back, with the Unicorn Gripper CG Stem (there are some stems with rings or grips similar in style to the Target Storm points, but they may not go all the way back to where the stem attaches to the barrel:

I don't think there is anything 'natural' about throwing darts. A person does not naturally stand sideways, with weight more on one leg, lean forward and swing to launch a projectile repeatedly, day in, day out as part of daily routine. One does not even throw a rock or ball that way.    ~ With darts, everything has to be learnt, and refined.  Wink

Double 16 Elite grip 23g darts are nice.
They are just over 50mm long, but have a great grip all the way down the barrel.
To me these are better than the Taylor phase 2 darts, as are shorter, have a more tapered bull nose, and are the same diameter.
They also offer a good grip like the purist, but it stays gripper for longer.
