Any Pros playing non-player darts?
For example, any Pros playing Winmau Asprias or Harrows darts? Or do they all play their own custom set?

For what it's worth, I've seen a few people swear up and down that his primary set is an old set of MasterDarts.

Richardson uses Harrows Rapide. Peter Wright has used a few non-player Winmau/Red Dragon models as well.

Interesting question. In golf, the player/gear manufacturer contracts are such that the player is forbid to play other clubs. I guess there may be a rare exception but those contracts are pretty much ironclad. For good reason too because it's pretty evident what club or putter a player is using. Visually, the same holds true in darts and if I had a player under contract I think I'd make darn certain he was throwing the company dart. Maybe it's not important to the dart companies but i would find that curious.

Barney for years used and won his first World title using Winmau Ton Machines, Corey Cadby used Harrows Torpedo's until he signed with Target and Robert Thornton used Harrows Boxer's before Red Dragon.

Some pro's have used other pro's darts such as:

Phil Taylor, Chris Mason, Rob Cross and Tony O'Shea used Bristow's.
Christian Kist, Mensur Suljovic and Phil Nixon used Barney Triple B's.
Wesley Harms used Martin Adam's darts.
Andy Fordam used John Lowe darts.
Andy Hamilton used the old red ringed budget Bristow darts.
I'm sure that MVG used Phil Taylor Phase 1's or something similar in 2006 before he used his McKicks.

He did but these were his own darts which were made for him after he won the world championship in 1998, the Triple B's are based on the Ton Machines which he used for years before and won his first World Championship with.

Not entirely sure but I think Ross Smith uses Rob Cross's darts. They look pretty similar. Well at least they're typical Bristow-Style-Darts
