Waht Are These
I cant find an online pic to show so Ill describe as best as I can and hopefully get a pic up at some point

I dug out these darts that dont have a "pointy" tip, they are a rounded bulbous tip where the last 2 millimeters of the dart is bigger than a normal tip and "rounded". The barrel is straight and similar to a Gary Anderson Phase 3 barrel. Anyways, Im throwing them very well (for me anyways) and am curious what they might be.

Ill definitely get a pic up at some point

thanks

edit--with pics now of actual darts

On the pics your darts look slimmer, otherwise i would say Bulls @501 Darts without the logo.

That's probably a good shout as the points look like Bulls Harpoon points

Although I dont know what particular points those are I would describe them a harpoon aka like on a whaling ship of old, they could actually be board wreckers, because, I suspect they will pull sisal  hair out with them, they might be specialised points kind of like for a proper wooden board or some other minor side branch, of board, that someone has had fitted ? maybe ? do you know anything about their history ? or where they came from originally, I think in the uk there are still a few areas of the country that use non standard boards, still and it might be true on a larger scale, abroad, I dont think I would use those points on a normal sisal board, but, if you have them changed keep them safe, anyway I think / suspect.


After making my post, I noticed the bull harpoon comment, not sure in the us / canada, or, other areas, but, in the uk for example I vaguely recall reading about a guy still making real end block wooden boards still in yorkshire (If I am not mistaken, about the area, although the guy was due to retire a few year ago, the article was going on about someone being trained to take over his hand made board round) obviously thats a dying art these days. I dont think I would use them on a normal board they look like they will pull the sisal hairs out, of  a normal board to me, do bulls harpoon points have a specialised use ? if I was to take a wild guess, it would be that they are designed for a block end board ? partly because I suspect the darts will not penetrate as far into the board, so, need the harpoon to retain grip.

Those particular points arent like a normal bulls harpoon point either, the harpoon part is far too short, of course they could just be well used (they do look like they have had a hard life to me) I would probably be tempted to keep them as a souvenir and change them (quite soon).

Found this link.

After a quick google it might have been manchester

cant find the original article, as, i vaguely remember it though.

OK i was wrong I think this was the original article,  going back to 2011 or 2013, quite a while ago now.

still an interesting read mind (to me anyhow).
Yes its me, I checked in the mirror. 

Current preferred weight 19 to 23 grams, with 21 gram, being my current favourate.

Favourate current darts set up :- 21 grams 46 to 50 mm barrel, 41 mm nylon shafts, standard flights.

you can probably tame them a bit using a good file or grinder to get some of that harpoon crap off then ends of the points.

I'd not throw them at any of my boards with those points.
