difference between copper tungsten and tungsten nickel silver
yeah I m looking at DC Designa Stiletto

The webpage say: These uniquely shaped darts bring the comfort feel that only copper tungsten can provide. 

and anything else?

usually the CT develops a kind of different feel as it ages, hard to describe it.

Do Copper Tungsten darts lose their weight over time?

I've heard of a few people with Copper Tungsten, that start as 24g darts but they "shrink" by several grams over time. I guess the acidic surface of your finger tips reacts with the copper leeching it from the dart barrels?

I've been considering getting some myself.

My father Merlin, once told me that "You should end up pointing to what you were aiming at when you've released the Dart."
