These are the Harrows Pulse 24g darts.  They are 90% tungsten and they are also available in 21,22,23,25 and 26 grams.  They retail for £24.95.   This set was very kindly sent to me from Richie at www.game-shot.co.uk.


CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:


The darts come in a slim box and are supplied with hard plastic case, point protector, Supergrip Fusion stems and Harrows Prime standard shape flights.

Its a straight barrel dart with a rounded bull nose.  The darts feature a recessed curved ring grip on the front and rear half with a small smooth band around the middle.  The front rings are slightly wider than the rear rings and the rear end of the barrel is a small smooth taper.  The grip has a nice feel and probably slightly grippier on the front but overall its around medium level grip.

WEIGHT:


Two barrels were very close and difference between lightest and heaviest is just four hundredths of a gram:

BALANCE:


With nothing attached the balance was a little front of centre:

With supplied setup  it moved slightly behind centre:

Balance with my own medium, inbetween, short and extra short nylon stems and standard flights:

CONCLUSION:



I have had a lot of requests to review this dart so it was good to finally get a test of them Smile

I find it a very pleasant dart to throw.  The grip feels a little better on the front I think because the rings are a little wider.  Its got an interesting feel which is quite subtle.  I would not say its grippy but the way the rings curve means you get a slight edgy feeling near the grooves but each ring also feels a little like a mini scallop.  The darts release nice and easy from the fingers and I had no problesm grip wise.  Overall it was flying quite smooth for me with my front grip and now I have played with them longer its a great dart that works well.

For middle grippers I guess it depends again where exactly you hold it, if its fully on the smooth band and thats enough grip for you then you will be happy with them, if you need more grip then you may need a different dart but balance is nice and when I got my throw right it flew fine from the middle.

I think it felt a little better to throw with the rear grip than the middle but still not as nice as from the front for me.  The rings are a little narrower on the rear but still have a nice feel to them and the dart was fairly well behaved for me so should be fine for natural rear grippers.

So it could be a nice all rounder but probably front and rear grippers have the best part of the dart which is the recessed curve grip.

Once again the quality is very nice and although its a fairly simple design it is elegant and functions well and again great value at around £25 so well worth trying Smile

Summary Ratings:


Looks: 8 (good)
Grip: 6.5 (1 to 10 Scale, 10 been severe grip)
Weight match: 9 (2 very close)
Quality: 8.5 (good)
Value: 9 (great)
Suitability for me: 8 (nice)

Best Feature: Grip Smile

I've been waiting for a review of a set that I have to see how we compare.  Great review and spot on.  I really like this set.  Rear gripper with intermediate shafts used.

My only complaint are the points.  The black scraped off from the wires in less that a week.  Other black points I have still look new with a lot of use.  Wish the points were longer.

Cheers! I think all black coated points wear but I still prefer them over silver and even the grip points. They are a little short though. Smile

Cheers! I like them, I think they are growing on me more, so who knows they may end up in the top 10. I like that Harrows have the range of weights the do too, I may try them in the 23g just to be sure Smile

These have made the list I imagine them as a hybrid of merv king and a Bristow style dart. I get on well with scalloped darts anyway Smile
