Harrows Wolfram Infinity
My eagerly anticipated Wolfram Infinity's came in last week. 
Very nice darts, especially for a rear gripper like me, but to me they are a lot more grippy than the original Wolframs.

Compared to the original (Infinity is 24 gr., original is 23 gr )

There's bits of me in the grip, should have cleaned them !

The nose is a lot squarer, almost like the Wade's!

Very nice. I must say these and the Plexus really did it to me... But I have to resist.
Is the flight behaviour of the two Wolframs similar?

Well, It's comparable, I think the Infinity's areslightly more centre-weighted than the originals, and the grip is a bit more aggressive (being new and sharp). So far I really like the way they fly, better than the original Wolframs. It;s still early days, dut they feel pretty consistent so far.

It was pretty much unbox, assemble and go. I found them easy to get used to. Let's say, friendship-with-benefits at first sight.  Wink

Thank you for your evaluation. I sold the first Wolframs... 2 times...so i would probably like a slightly different fly behavior.
But the Wolframs are very popular. I see them here very often. I am curious whether the gen2 will also be so successful.

I’ve been shooting Wolframs for >3 years now and I’m a definite fan. That being said, I don’t understand why Harrows gave those new darts a name that has the word Wolfram in it. They look like an entirely different design to me. I’ve always seen the tapered front portion of the barrel and the narrow front end as being the signature characteristics of the Wolframs and that new dart looks like just one more straight-barreled, non-tapered design. I just don’t get the use of the word Wolfram here.

From what I understand, Wolfram is another term for Tungsten...or an older term...something like that.....and these darts are 97% Tungsten.
From Wikipedia:
Tungsten, or wolfram,[7][8] is a chemical element with symbol W and atomic number 74. The name tungsten comes from the former Swedish name for the tungstate mineral scheelitetung sten or "heavy stone".[9] Tungsten is a rare metal found naturally on Earth almost exclusively combined with other elements in chemical compounds rather than alone. It was identified as a new element in 1781 and first isolated as a metal in 1783. Its important ores include wolframite and scheelite.

AHA!   That explains it.   I didn’t know that.   I figured the Wolframs were named after some designer or shooter from somewhere in the past.

As I sit and wait day after day, question for you guys with these. I know that often times, 80% darts can feel lighter that they really are. Do these being 97% give any feeling of being heavier than they really are?

Another dart that seems to have a smooth section with the logo right where I grip. They do look superb though

They do feel heavier than they look, being pretty slim, but it's something I like a lot. After throwing these, picking up the Barney phase 5's makes them feel a bit plump.

Well after 5 weeks my 20g soft arrived today.  Complete with a baseball size hole in the bag.  Amazing that not a single flight package missing,

Love the weight
Love the size
Love the balance

Do not love the grip.  Way more aggressive than anticipated or normally thrown.  Considering I throw smooth GT’s Smile  Was hoping for a grip like the Pulse.

Hoping I get used to them or they wear down some.

I have Wolfie's in 22g and 24g and have been looking at the new version and waiting for you guys to weigh in on them. I like the older narrowed front on them but these will take some getting used to. wonder if some storms would fit into them? That would smooth out the front of the dart if they will fit.
