Voks Design A Darts Winning Darts Review



Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AHfooiAFRU

A while ago Voks ran their competition for people to enter their own darts designs. It just so happened that our very own Greg AKA Rebel was the winner! He got 5 sets of darts made to his design and very kindly me sent me a set too. So here they are.

I actually reviewed these a good few weeks ago but only just got round to editing and uploading the review but I remember a lot of people commenting at the time he won that they would like to have a set too, and I think they would make a great dart for a lot of people Smile


CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:


The darts came in a Voks box which is a neat design with a kind of flapped lid with a couple of magnets inside to hold in place and a plastic window to show the contents. The barrels were fitted with some short nylon two tone stems and supplied with some slim flights a point protector and mini Voks wallet:

The barrels have a very grippy double ring grip which is a high level grip and with a scallop section at the rear which has a medium level kind of flat micro style grip.

WEIGHT:

There is just six hundredths of a gram difference between the lightest and heaviest barrel:

Weight with the set up as supplied:

BALANCE:

With nothing attached the barrel is front weighted:

With the supplied set up it moves a little closer to the centre but still a front weighted bias:

Balance with my own medium, short and extra short nylon stems and standard flights:

MY GRIP WITH THESE DARTS:


Was pretty happy gripping near the front with these and it has a slightly chunky feel but a great grip!

CONCLUSION:

I think Greg has come out with a very functional yet great looking design here and Voks have done a great job at making them too.

The double ring grip is very nice but the scallop is as I normally find very comfy to grip but its too far from my natural grip for me.

I think it works well for front grippers and should be great for rear grippers who like a front weighted dart.

Darts felt lighter in my grip that what they should do, I think its because the scallop and the weight bias must be making it so it was closer to the balance point for my grip. I also found for me that when I tried some medium stems they flew a fair deal better, I think it was quite sweet with mediums on. Barrels are a touch longer than I normally like so was a little surprised the mediums worked better but it could be the way it affects the weight balance again.

I did try throwing from the rear scallop but it was just too strange for me, should be great for you natural rear grippers though.

Darts were a little bit zippy through the air with my front grip but on the whole they had a nice stable flight.

So a good dart really and may be one I think we should get made a few more of?

Well done Greg! Smile

Summary:

Looks: 8 (look good actually)
Grip: 8.5 (on a 1 to 10 Scale, 10 been severe grip)
Weight match: 8 (fairly close)
Quality: 8.5 (good)
Value: 10 (Hey they were free off Greg Tongue )
Suitability for me: 8 (think they felt better to throw with mediums and standard flights for me)

Best Feature: Grip Smile

Great review once again Darren - those darts look amazing... Rebel lol

I have only 3 full sets left due to a 'board hanging malfunction' and as these are me match darts I am sorry Edgar but the cookie jar is empty Sad

Hopefully if they prove popular after Darren's review, who knows, maybe we can look at getting a few extra sets - I know I would like a couple more sets in an ideal world Smile
