Well...
Was having another throw with the Red Dragon Wayne Warrens just now and this happened.

The dart was poked into the ring of the bull. Never seen that before. it wasn’t wedged and the dart was rested on the dart below it but It’s definitely made a lasting mark though!!

Hey Chris,

I think you’d better change the name of your lighting surround in your signature Blush I bet the manufacturer is Confused maybe there’s a cigar and soft drinks company thinking about a name change too.

My father Merlin, once told me that "You should end up pointing to what you were aiming at when you've released the Dart."

After stabbing myself a few times with the Goldfinger2 factory points I was thinking of blunting the points a little.... then this happened... the wire on the triple 16 had no prior damage. The Cosmo factory points are maybe too sharp.

BDG that might be the most extraordinary thing to ever happen in darts. The probability of a dart splitting less than a millimeter of metal is 1 in a million. Great picture. Hope it didn't ruin the board!

I wouldn’t have believed it was possible before experiencing it.
Thankfully the gap shown in the wire closed when I removed the dart.

Totally agree. They’re like needles. Far too sharp...
