One80 Spark -like darts?
I have lately been browsing through my small collection of darts. After testing them, I found these One80 Spark darts (20g) to fly smoothly. These were the very first darts i bought some two years a go...
I like the balance of the dart and particularly the conical shape of the nose. What I would like to have is more grip in the back section of the dart.

Do you guys know any similarly shaped dart (conical nose) that could substitute Spark? The length of 20g Spark is 48 mm (width 6.35 mm).  I tried the DC Dart Selector but could no find similar enough options...

Designa exterminators? Very close in weight and length too: https://www.dartscorner.co.uk/product_in...s_id=34521

One80 Paladin maybe? Or you could have your Sparks modified to add a bit of grip at the back

I would try and source a 2nd set of Sparks and get them modified.

I have no clue with the Sparks but I can see how they would be a nice dart with the smooth section reversed to the front and that grip swapped to the rear. Good luck finding what you're after

Thanks for your advise guys.
The Exterminators do not have enough grip...
The Dragons look interesting...
The Paladins look very good (the dimensions are spot on)... but the prize...

Maybe these might also work (Designa Razor Grip): https://www.dartscorner.co.uk/product_in...ts_id=5508

Hmmm... In fact I have two sets of Sparks in use. 
I would maybe need another set of narrow grooves (four?) in the back of the dart. I wonder how much weight will be lost in the modification? And how much is the cost? The Sparks are now 20g and I don't want to go much lighter (most of my darts are 22g...)

Have to think about...
