Alternative to storm points?
Ok, so here is the deal: I have been using both straight and grooved storm points lately, and really like the smooth transition they give my darts..

Lately, I have been wanting to use something like the storm nano grip or firestorm diamond, to add a little extra board grip.

The problem is that I an tired of buying theese expensive storm points, just to find that they don’t fit in the darts.. I have 2 sets of nano grips, and still only have a total of TWO points that actually stick in the barrels (and yes, I have tried on different sets of darts...)

So, is there an alternative out there? Tapered points, with some extra grip?

I've bought RD Trident/Winmau Freeflo points and moved the trident rings to my favorite points (Target Diamond and Shot Viking).

Yeah, I’ve been thinking about tridents, but it won’t be as smooth as a tapered point though..

Yeah, I have though of those, but do they come with any sort of grip? Board grip that is?

RegisterThey have a version with finger grip... But i have never tried these, cause i dont need finger grip.

The normal version of the points are not polished and have a very good grip in the board

I'd also recommend Voks Tornadoes, you can buy them in the forum shop at a discount I think.

Alternatively, is the problem that the storm points are too slim to fit in your barrels?  If so you could add a drop of loctite to the barrels before pushing the points in to solve this. (Although personally I'd go with Voks as I've just snapped a storm point lol)

Well, considering all of yours recommandation (and because I am a nut) I am willing to give theese a shot, and just hope that the special finish on them gives enough board grip  Smile

Had to buy them directly from VOKS website though, since the "discounted" price at the forum shop was $22 a set, for us living in Europe...   Undecided

So, now it's another round of the waiting game, then  Tongue
