Unicorn Volute points mini review
Even my silver points on my budget bullets dig into the board like hell. If I scuff them they stick to the sisal.

Just got a set of these to try.
As designed, they grip the board fantastic, and had some feeble darts stay in.
These are destroying my blade 5 however. Do they calm down after a while?

Mine haven't caused any damage at all, are you using the plain or the ringed ones?

Only thing I can suggest is pulling them straight out, don't twist them out as with these ones it seems to make it worse if you twist them

Finally installed them on a 22g One80 set, and wow, they DO GRIP!
I normally use Storm Nano, but they're not an option on One80 darts due to the built in smooth transition. The Volutes put nano points to shame. I have to forcefully yank my dart out, and I do sometimes see dust (likely tiny board fibers) follow. Spinning or pulling straight out didn't seem to matter. I had to stop throwing because the board retained a point (point came out of the barrel); time for some Locktite. It won't surprise me if all 3 end up needing it.
For reference: I'm a righty, using 1 year old Blade 5, not a hard thrower.

I've been using them for a month now and have 2 observations...
1. The black ones I used have a lot of grip and pull out a lot of fibres. The natural ones, not so much... a bit like using a Steve Beaton knurled point.
2. The natural ones were a really tight fit in the barrel, but the black ones were on the verge of needing loctite.

I just came back to relay this exactly.
The black ones are too grippy.  Not only were they pulling sisal out of the board, but just pulling them out of the board was ridiculously hard.  The silver ones stick but aren't extreme.

I did need Locktite on the 2 of the 3 black points, but I put silvers into the same set after removing the black points, and they were perfect.

Unicorn's legendary quality control striking again maybe? I have 2 sets of the black ones and neither cause any board damage, they have been fitted in Monster, Mission and Target barrels without any need for loctite.

They do stick in the board tight but not ridiculously so, I'd say equivalent to new Target Diamond points.

I mention the quality control as I had 2 sets of old Unicorn T95s in 23g and 25g and they were both actually 24g Big Grin
