From the article:

A titanium finish darts offer a distinctive and classy look but it is also extremely practical and durable, created using leading edge technology.


This coating means that the tungsten underneath will not tarnish or corrode, deteriorate from salts, oils in your skin, dirt and grime build up or wear and tear, particularly given darters hands naturally release salts in the form of sweating.

I've heard that the Titanium can be slippery and eventually wears off.
I've also heard that vintage tungsten/copper darts, usually 80% Tungsten actually improve there grippyness as the oxydizing copper component leaves a rougher texture that aids in grip/control.

Golden Ti is nice and grippy for me, feels a bit like brass without the horrible smell. Vintage Copper T's are lovely though.

Rebel Don't buy expensive darts until you have been playing for at least a year.

You only said "a year." Not "ever."

You're right, Kev. All coatings will eventually wear off - titanium nitride is harder than most (which is why it's used on cutting tools and similar). Being hard and therefore having a smooth, less porous surface, it can certainly feel slippery, although that depends a lot on how coarsely the metal is milled as well. Sweat is the main problem, I find, especially if your sweat is salty/oily (which mine is - it eats away gold coatings, such as those on the metal parts on my guitar, quite effectively :s).

If your guitar has gold coatings, I'm assuming it is a Gibson? Maybe a les paul?

Would love a Les Paul, Milky, but funds don't permit. It's a Mexican Tele. Bought it on Fleabay - someone had put a gold bridge and control plate on it. Where I rest my hand, the finish has blackened and is disappearing.Sad Such is life.

Adds character. As long as it sounds good. My mexi strat really came to life when I replaced the pickups with Seymour Duncan Hotrails.

I would advice to spent about 40 quid on 2 sets darts and some different sets of stems and flights.

Harrows Assassin 23gR
Harrows Gyro 23g
Winmau Foxfire 22g R, 24g (lowe)

Some of that range, not to expensive and good darts.
may all the doubles be with you
