Nice ones though and I'm liking the green setup too. :thumbup:

How does the Atomized grip area feel in your opinion?

Love the grip, with these being a little shorter than my current darts I find I grip quite a bit of the Atomised section and it's a sandpaper type feel to my fingers, releases good and straight though.

I definitely will be purchasing a repointer in the new year though as I don't want the knurled points destroying my box fresh board.

Cool set Tez, liking the setup as well. They look quite long, thought Fordham darts were around 40mm or less..

How are the grip in the fat part and on the rear?

GWN you made me pull out the old Raiders again for a few throws... which made me pull out the golden Lowe's... and the Stone grips were packed away near by so they came out too. All great darts. It's been a fun day throwing these again. Now to put them away and stop switching sets tomorrow  Huh .

Thanks WhiskyPops,

 I grip from the rear and would say its similar to my Harrows Fires  with more of my leading finger on the Atomised grip.

As for the fat front part I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to comment.

They definitely are shorter than any other darts in my collection, I don't have one of those fancy digital measurmebobs but could grab a ruler from my sons desk later if you wish.

Thanks for the reply Smile no worries about measurement, the pic is just close up.

What I meant to ask is, how does the atomized grip feel? It looks almost sandpapery..

Sandpapery is the word I would use.

Nice and grippy

These are the only bullet shaped barrels I have in my collection, the left set are 25.2 gram but no clue what they are and the right set are 26 gram RD Frosty The Throwman.
Both feel nice in the hand, unfortunately they are not for me
