My collection
So I have now amassed a collection of over 40 sets of darts and I have decided to put them on here for your viewing pleasure.

First up Simon Whitlock 22g

[Image: a92a7a1aaf958147391b7c7743cb1521.jpg]

As you can see (and most likely know) these are for the most part a tapered style dart. With a scallop sitting almost central on the barrel.

In front of the scallop there are three "banks" of a sharp ring grip which is relatively grippy and behind the scallop is a rather grippy section of shark grip.

All of this grip is almost superfluous to me as i hold the dart with my thumb and forefinger on the scallop as seen below. With one of the banks of grip acting as a reference for my middle finger.

Overall I like these darts a fair bit and they are actually the darts I had my first league win with just under 2 years ago.

Overall I rate them a 6.5/10 for suitability to me.

I recommend these to anyone who wants to try a tapered or more uniquely shaped dart.

Thanks for reading.

Thanks for sharing the pics and showing us your grip. I always liked the Whitlocks and now the new ones have got my interest pegged on the want to buy meter.

Do it! I love my urban Whitlocks with a crazy setup (pic below) and get a lot of comments in league games with the way they hang off the board!

The special edition are lovely, too! [Image: 1fac79c57db847a7d6ead70133773041.jpg]

Moved to the "Show Us" room, as not a dart review.  At least in the usual sense. Smile

Thank you. I hastily selected review from the list.

I'm guessing he tried the 23g Red Dragon Screaming Eagles as they look exactly the same - got a set of those in the collection somewhere

I bought these from a forum member who had removed the paint, had extra grip added to the front, and had them drilled out to 19g.

This leads to a rather different dart from the originals, add to that some storm surge points and we have quite the unique set here.

All in all the grip level up front is pretty high and the rest is medium but very comfortable.

Here is my grip with these darts (excuse the work dirt).

As you can see I grip rather near the front here, probably due to the centre of gravity being further forward. I would rate these 6/10 for their suitability to me.

Set 3
23g Ian White DNA
These are some of the most eye catching darts I own and always get comments on them.

As you can see, they're stunning!
The grip is basic, with evenly spaced rings on the front half with the back being mostly smooth with a few more rings back there.

However, as basic as the grip is, these are very grippy, deep, square-cut rings. The grip level is fantastic. I'd say up at a 7.5+/10 to me. But, this grip doesnt snag on a finger easily either.

In all I think these darts would suit almost all front-middle grippers.
Here is my personal grip with them.

I would say their suitability for me is a solid 8 with my only non-positive (not negative though) comment being that they feel heavier than they are.

Hope you enjoyed reading.

Set 4 Red Dragon Shaun Griffiths 25g

Next we have a set I haven't thrown much at all.
I believe I purchased these from a fellow nut.
[Image: 5d11ae9fd9ba3ee7f8e6aa22731d6d82.jpg]
They are a classic parallel profile dart with a chunky ring grip and a pointed/round nose.
There is a small section of a different, shallower ring grip around 2/3 of the way from the front of the dart.
The front 3/4 of the dart has an atomised finish. If, you've never had this finish on a dart before, it is a softer feeling to plain tungsten and the edges have a rounder feel to them. It's a nice feeling grip overall.
This is my grip with them.

Overall I rate these a 7/10 for suitability to me as they are a little on the heavy side but still a lovely throw.
