Finding new Darts for me
Hello, 

like the title says, i´m searching for new Darts. 
There are 4 Sets that drawn my attention. 

Target Phil Taylor Power 8zero Black Titanium 24g
Paul Nicholson Winmau 24g 
Red Dragon Amberjack 6 23g
Red Dragon Falcon GT 24g

For the last 3 i found reviews here in the forum. But can anybody say how the 8zero´s are? 

And can anybody say how the Grip on the Amberjacks is?


Thanks for any help.

The Nicholson darts have a good locator grip at the balance point.

Which shafts do you use with the Taylor darts?


And how is the grip of the Nicholson Darts more at the end of the barrel?

I can speak to the Nicholsons, which are quite nice darts really. I have the 24g and am considering the 22g as I have gone to lighter darts.
Darts in Use:
STEEL
League/Match Set: Voks 22g EL-C Crossover
Backup match set: Dynasty 20g Fallon Sherrock Soft tips (w/ Fit Point conversion points)
Home Board: Blade 4 Dual Core
SOFT
Match Set: Katana Kokutou Hisyou 17.5g  Softtips. (My principle soft tip set)
Backup Match Set: Bull's Mamba 97 16.5g
Home Board: Gran Board II

Do any of you other Nicholson users get bad bounce outs with them? I get the I'd odd one when the aggressive grips mesh together, the nose of the one thrown with the barrel of one in the board.

Darts: Harrows Glen Durrant Duzza Series 2 24g, short Harrows Supergrip shafts, Harrows flights (Marathon/Retina/Optix/Rapide) 


Best 501: 13 darts (League), 14 darts (Pro Darter)

Best Checkout: 154 (League), 160 (Pro Darter)

I probably have fewer bounce outs with the Nicholsons than the majority of my other darts. Mine are the black coated ones and they are dressed up with short stems.

I was lucky enough to find a Onlineshop which is not far away from my hometown. And the owner said its not a problem to test some and pay for the darts there. So i can hopefully test the Nicholson and Taylor darts.

Only have to wait until 16 of January to test them. Then I can tell more about the Darts. Smile

Nice one. Great to get a feel for the dart before you purchase.
Currently throwing 20g Wades badly at an Eclipse Pro
