My first set of customs
[Image: Pjw9XSD.jpg]

Order my first set of customs from Custom Made Darts at the end of February. Got them two weeks ago and I must say that Tony does excellent work. They are base on an older model of 20g Unicorn T90s from the 80s.

Only took me two weeks to hit a max with them.

Lovely set . And 180.
Looks like you and tony did a great job producing the darts you wanted.

Not a bad wait! He is suggesting he is about 7 weeks behind on his orders. Great for him, bit slow of a wait for his customers , but they will all be happy in the end like you!

Do you mind me asking how long you two were communicating before you had your design and final decisions made up for production?

We only communicated for 2 to 3 days before I was ready to pay for my set. I really knew what I wanted, dimensions weight grip. When I emailed him my idea and a drawling, he got back to me the next day. After he said he could make them I didn’t even think about the lead time to make them and placed my order. Tony said it would be 8 to 9 weeks before shipping. I didn’t mind the wait cause I know he does excellent work.

Tony does some nice work. I’m so happy with my customs, definitely worth the wait. From the time I paid to when they where shipped didn’t seem long to me. I have plenty of other sets to keep me busy, but as soon as I knew they where done and in the mail, that’s when I started counting the days.

I‘m sure the time will pass quickly and you will be as happy as I am with your new customs. I follow the Custom Made Darts page on Facebook to see Tony’s amazing work and other players custom ideas. Be sure to post a pic when you get yours, I’d like to see what kind of set you designed.

I will. I started a thread awhile back with the first steps of the idea of what I wanted. I made some changes to the design from the original idea and sent that to Tony. Once he gets the set done, I'm going to post a pic of what I sent him along with pictures of the completed darts.

Thanks guy, but most all of thanks for you patience.

December/January/February were crazy months, I took in a lot of orders and was hoping to be caught up with lead times back around norm at 2/3 weeks by Mid-March, but then the world locked down and everyone took up darts.  Smile 

Very busy times, but it is keeping me sane making all these darts.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

Stay Safe (Alert).

Another piece of quality workmanship from Tony and CMD - looks like they are flying well for you, hope they keep true.

Also, I doubt I'd be able to throw them, but love the look of those back to front V Wings

Hello!

nice to see you engaging with the community and keeping us posted on your schedule and sanity.

im pondering something lately I would like to ask you as the service provider from your experience and the community as the customers for some opinions.

i ordered a set of Designa Staminas....absolutely lovely dart....the front of dart has lateral cuts to help barrels follow into the target should collision occur.

however they are not deep enough to offer much grip.

with practice I have really gotten them flowing great and managing with little front grip.

i sent a email before realizing the design purpose. And wanted a heavy ring grip at the front to the back modified in. But this might interfeer with design purpose l all though I am not that good , but I have notices the grouping being aided by finding these smooth lateral cuts.


questions for all

The cost for me to send darts + pay modification cost + any additional costs + shipping back to me. + time waiting for shipping existing barrel. 

Or 

Am i better off having the dart recreated AS A CUSTOM SET BY TONY.  Cost wise , plus getting exactly what I want and My very own customs. 

Also.....to Tony - would I be best off to send the barrell regardless that id like re designed and produced by you , to maintain original weights / balance.

im sure that’s easier to work with ?

i have no problem paying for a custom set at your fair prices. Just want to make sure i make the right decision.

so let’s hear it,
Modify a set or have a recreation made,with my own modifications , be it minor dimension changes and grip and what not

I need this barrell design possibly a bit longer at the rear section where it begins to taper. And some form of additional grip at the Front.
Any suggestions?
I’m thinking deeper lateral cuts and microgrip??? Or tear drops? I have never experience tear drops however...

Thanks!hope,you are catching Up.

Are all your services backed up.
thanks in advance

If you modify an existing set, you instantly lose weight and that will vary depending on the extent of the modifications.

Often a solution is modify a set, to get a feel that the modification done to create the ideal is the correct way forward before plunging straight in for a set of customs.

i do appreciate this suggestion as it makes sense.

I really do believe I would be happy To have this set custom made / re-made with additional grip features   And getting as close to the weight as possible.

would sending the dart help facilitate things if I’m not able to communicate the measurements and specs well enough? It’s an odd shape lol
