Soft tip darts with steel points? Or other way around?
I play in a soft tip league, but practice at home on my bristle with my soft tips.  I also have been playing some steel tip for fun/social at a local pub.  All my sets are pretty cheap and looking for an upgrade.    I was wondering if it would be best to upgrade my soft tips and add conversion tips for throwing bristle, or do they make steel tip darts that have replaceable tips that would accept soft tips?  
Or option 3, get a new set of each?  If I go this route, should I keep my weights the same or go heavier with the steel tips (22-24g) and lighter with the soft tips (16-18g)?

Thanks,
Hawk

This is what I do Hawk, but it can also be expensive. I usually go 18g/19g with Soft Tips and 22g/23g with Steel Tips in the same Dart set style.

If it was me and I was going to play both soft tip and steel then I would use the same soft tip barrels and get conversion points for them for steel tip. Doing that I would be using near enough the same weight for both disciplines - the only difference being any difference in weight between the soft tip points and the conversion points.

Yup, I tried that too and to be honest, the soft tips with conversion points just fly different.  Smile

Believe me, you wouldn't :-) I live in a soft tip country and most of those who are brave enough to play steel tips as well sooner or later buy original steel tip darts and prefer these original darts over the conversion points. Yes, you get light darts with conversion points but it's better to have a set of better balanced darts... What is more, many players find out that heavier darts are more forgiving. I play soft tips with the heaviest possible weight here (20g, actually it's only 17,5g barrel) but I much prefer playing steel tips with darts that are mostly from 22 to 24g.
