RVB 9Five GEN2 vs Daytona Fire GT02
Hi all.

I've done a search and came accross a thread about RVB's gen 1's vs the original Daytona fires but not the second generation.

Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendation regarding these two darts?

I'm going to get one of them and they both look lovely and are a similar shape but is one better?

Thank you.

There really is no better, it's totally down to what is for you, I had the Gen 2 RVBs (4 times) fh time I sold them on, Daytona Fire GTs I haven't yet used, but find the original too "serious" abd more of a display toy, so they were promptly moved on.

Imo both of them are on the edge of overpriced. Sure they look awesome, but for that money your can get at least 2 Sets of various, even Player, Darts. But we all know that Feeling wehen you WANT a Set of darts...

On topic: I personally prefer the shape of the rvb95s but I like gen1 optics more than Gen2. Never had any Daytona Dart in my Hand tough.
   --> 2019 Best: 13 darts 
   --> 2019 - Finishes: 170, 150, 147
   --> 2019 - 180's: 55

My take:
RVB works better for me than the Daytonas. I'm a mid gripper, and the transition the point from barrel to point is my big landmark. The transition on the Daytonas is beautiful and nearly seamless, but didn't work at all for my grip.
Edit for clarity: I have RVB1, not 2. Still thought that might be helpful.

Both are overpriced imho, for the same amount of money you can get 4 sets from a cheaper brand.

Thank you all.

I'm a sometimes front but mainly mid gripper so the transition point is a great point, thank you holmesness.

As for price, I don't really need or want 4 more sets. I already have several sets and buy new sets when the urge grabs me. Right now I feel like buying a dart with the GT02/RVB 95 shape and these two are the ones that grabbed my attention for looks and shape. Price is of course a consideration but I wouldn't be considering these if it was an issue currently.

I think I'm leaning towards the RVB 95 Gen 2 with a smooth black or gold storm point replacement.

Thank you.

Give the RVB a go, sounds like you have an idea you want it, just go for it

Glad to help!  It's a beautiful dart.  I'm with you on the costs... it's expensive but like buying art it's worth it if you appreciate it. It's fun to splurge on a set or two and we're not talking life changing money on these darts.
