Unicorn Mirage or Evolution?
What is the difference other than choice in weight and that beautiful Rosso finish? Thinking of buying a set and notice a big price difference, the Rosso is pretty but not that pretty if it is same dart.

Mirage's are the same except for having different weights which the dimensions change accordingly as well.

Thanks. Kind of what I thought. On one hand I think I am trying to make a responsible buying decision and on the other I am just being cheap (Go on chump...get those Rosso's....don't be a tightwad...you deserve it!) Ah yes, the stress of first world problems. LOL

Rosso's are a nice dart indeed, but in the end it's your decision unfortunately.  Good luck with that too. Big Grin

In the end I ended up going with a set of 26 gr Unicorn purist Phase 5. I have plenty of stems and flights to dress up the barrels with and still get the Rosso vibe and at a cheaper price. Initially I was put of by the rear of the purist barrel but the more I looked the better I liked the idea of the  grip on the rear of the barrel.

does the finish/coating of the rosso come off?

The Rosso finish will chip away like all dart coatings will, but it does add to the grip of the dart, extra grip.

Sounds like Lonelybull may have plumped for the LP grip phase 5s if they had grip at the rear of the barrel also.
