Target-darts.co.uk Storm Points
I’d just thought it would be right to put a foot note on this as it did attract some polarised responses.

Given that Target Darts have really washed their hands on this issue, I’m doing what they really wanted all along.
I’m not sure what consumer law is like in the UK but if an item isn’t fit for its application it should be replaced under statutory warranty, consumable item or not.
To call an item consumable, when it constitutes between 15% & 30% of the purchase price of a set of darts.
Then to be told that I don’t have the required expertise to install darts points.
I used a Target brand Repointer
I use Target Darts
I bought Target Points
I am a qualified Fitter Machinist

Made absolutely no difference to Target Darts UK

Bearing in mind, you can buy the machine, and the points but the is no precautionary or instructive warning on either the machine or the points.
If Target are going to hide behind the expertise issue - Put a notice on the packet !
This product needs to be installed by a person who is suitably qualified.

I posted on here a while ago about my Target Tony O'Shea darts hitting the wire (on a bull shot i think) and denting the barrel, contacted Target about it and their response was "

Hi Andrew

Thanks for you Images, that's a rather big dent in the front of the barrel. This happened in a bounce out did it make contact with something on the floor to create this gape?

Its not the norm for this to happen though, perhaps its slightly brittle in the area there of the tungsten.

Regards & best

not the best customer service i have ever had lol.

RegisterMakes me sick to think its all the ordinary punters hard earned money that has made them as big and uncaring as they are.

Don’t understand why Target wouldn’t just address these minor issues and be done with it .
I’m sure the bad PR they are getting from this post will cost them more at the end of the day than if they would have dealt with a few dissatisfied customers who IMO had legitimate claims .

RegisterA bit of a catch 22.
If they ignore the problem the little annoying people will go away... eventually.

Well don’t they have a hide.
I just got an email asking me to rate their customer service.
Rotten bastards give me Tourette’s , I don’t understand how they have a crappy attitude and expect gratitude for being ripped off and treated like an idiot.
Told them so in no uncertain terms.
Then went back and edited out the expletives   Angel
Some companies just get my blood pressure up.
