Unicorn Product Launch 2020
A couple of the gripper darts look interesting, but overall I expect a little more new darts.
It seems the Code darts should be the highlight. But who wants to buy 80% tungsten darts for £65?

Quite a small number of products for a main release compared to the likes of Target, Winmau etc. Still, some nice gear - really like the Klaasen Phase 2, although I'll wait for the 'purist' version before grabbing a set - don't need all that packaging. I'll be ordering the Cameron Menzies Global along with some of the new player flights, and maybe some of the blue Sigma conversion points. The most interesting new product could be the Volute points. I looked at the video - it looks like they shouldn't need scuffing and are designed to grip the sisal.

Saw a post on facebook earlier - the Sigma's should be £109.95 when they land over at DartsGB, so I would imagine the other normal retailers to be the same sort of amount.

I agree those points look interesting and I think I'll be trying them, one minor gripe is that it looks like they're only available in 1 length, although that could change of course.

I like the look of the new Klaasens but they're probably a bit too pricy for me, even if they release them as purist (I'm guessing they'd be about £85).

The Unicorn 2020 Launch shows one more time that they are clearly not what they WANT to be e.g. the innovativ or "best" darts company around. Especially the price structure is ridiculous in some cases (80%, Klaasen,...). They are not attractiv to me anymore as a brand. Just my personal opinion. Not gonna buy.

Edit: aside from that I do like the new grippers tough.

So it seems to be agreed the prices are way up there but then again what isn't these days? If my money wasn't so funny I'd have to go with the Klaasen's if only I could do barrels I'd be on it like flies on poo LOL

Once the reviews come in and we have the excellent pics our members share, that's what we're looking forward to before making decisions

The most underwhelming Unicorn launch ever.

If I'm being honest I think Unicorn's 2020 launch was alright but definitely a bit underwhelming in comparison to Target or Winmau launches.

I liked the look of some of the darts including the Klaasen's, McGeeney's and the CODE series, however there is no chance I would pay £125 for darts that may only be a slight improvement on Klaasen's previous offering. That said, this seems to be the common trend for dart prices now and will only be increasing unfortunately. 


Overall, some good products but prices need to be looked at again.
