Red Dragon Peter Wright Mamba 2 - 24 gram
Hello all!  New dart day again.  Red Dragon order from last week arrived.  I have been wanting to try out the Snakebite Wright darts for awhile now, but I always have hesitated due to the length.  I was also worried about the grip.  I just can't get on with a shark grip.  Most of the time I feel like the grooves cut into my fingertips too much, and tend to get very wobbly in flight, hitting the board at odd angles.  I have to say, I was really surprised by these.  The length doesn't bother me at all.  That grip feels great!  Even though it is a shark type grip, the edges feel more rounded off for me.  Which is a high level without sticking to my fingers when I release.  What else surprised me is they kind of feel like they are a hexagon/octagon shaped barrel.  It might just be my perception?  The Daytona fires felt a bit like that to me as well, but were less grippy than these.  I'm kind of a middle rear gripper, and where the little round sleeve is doesn't bother my grip at all.  The green color makes them look really cool, and it's pretty vibrant.  I have noticed that these darts end up on the swap sites a lot, so they might not be everybody's cup of tea?  I honestly didn't think I would like them this much, but they are pretty sweet.  I think I'm going to work with them for awhile.  They might turn into my match darts.

Well done. I bought a set of these just over a week ago and I'm still fairly happy with them. I really like the grip but I've always liked a high level grip. The barrel does have a hexagonal kind of feel to it. I've noticed when I roll the dart slightly when I aim that I like to get the flattest part of the grip under my finger tips. 

Darren has done a great review of the 22g version of the Mamba 2 and it was his great pictures of them which sealed the deal for me. I'm a mid to rear gripper and the rear grip section is perfectly placed for me. 

Check out Darren's review if you haven't already

Thanks for sharing your latest purchase( and also with a good pic), it looks like a nice dart. Yay for new dart day, I hope to have one of those soon hopefully.
I find shark grip is really nice after about 6 months and after about 2 years its too worn out for me IMO. Thats ok as i look forward to new dart days.
More pictures please.
