Longitudinal grip
I'm looking for a dart that has a longitudinal grip preferable towards the rear of the barrel - does anyone know of any darts that would fit that description?

Many thanks

What shape/profile of barrel are you interested in?

Winmau special edition Daryl gurney and reddragon hunter darts come to the top of my head, but have a feeling that's not they type of grip you mean, (they have long cuts in them)

Might be a good idea to define your idea of "longitudinal grip".  The darts Zeeple links meet the definition, but somehow doubt that's what you mean.  Unicorn used to call that "long parallel knurl".  But definitely longitudinal grip! Tongue  

I suspect you mean lines or grooves cut along the length, as well as more conventional tooling.  If so, lots of darts meet that criteria.  As GWN mentions, you'd need to refine your requirements a bit more.

cheers...

Thanks for the examples guys - much appreciated !!

I'm looking to design my own scalloped darts with a longitudinal grip to help me spin the darts.

Might want to give this post a read.  Addresses longitudinal cuts and spin.  Perhaps give you a few ideas too:

If you want your darts to spin, give these a flights a try.  They are from Spiraline.

Yeah Nixer, diagonal cuts are even more suited to induce spin.

Can fashion these out DIY. Very very easy! Just get the direction of the bend correct as flights like these are rotally dependent on which hand you throw with. 

Generally, from behind, bend the tail end of the flight clockwise for a right hand throw, and anticlockwise for a left hand throw. Bent the wrong way and the flight of the dart is totally unstable.
I don't think there is anything 'natural' about throwing darts. A person does not naturally stand sideways, with weight more on one leg, lean forward and swing to launch a projectile repeatedly, day in, day out as part of daily routine. One does not even throw a rock or ball that way.    ~ With darts, everything has to be learnt, and refined.  Wink

A beginner - always experimenting and trying to learn! So I can fool around with loads of set-ups and techniques! Lol! Big Grin
