Why did I bother buying these darts? - Category
Mark Webster 20g Winmau were one of the worst. Grip all wrong, didn't get used to them. Got rid after 3-4 months!

I've had a few, but can't remember them all.

I can identify with you. I'm in Southern USA and there are NO Dart shops/stores near me whatsoever. I have to purchase everything online without testing. I'm not use to that, because in NJ we had quite a few Dart stores where you could try out the Darts before purchase. I'm now relying a lot on GetaGrip and YouTube reviews. I also don't like to wait for the mail....I want what I want when I want it...LOL

I had been playing for years using a thin straight barreled dart and the Phase5's just didn't suit me at all... In fact, I was lucky if I could get them to stick in the board!
Had around 6 or 7 fall out in the space of a couple of mins.

Just didn't suit me at all.

About 4 years ago I bought the Taylor Phase 5 Rosso's as I loved the look of them. First with the original set up I couldn't hit a thing and like you they fell out of the board quite a lot.
I changed the set up with standard flights and despite how much I wanted it to work it didn't. Earlier this year having changed my throw quite a bit I got the urge to give them another go so ordered the phase 5 Rosso Purists put some standard flights and midi stems and for some reason they worked great and have been my no.1 darts up until very recently.
180's up to 2017 = 4
180's 2017  = 22
180's 2018  = 21
180's 2019 = 11 (1x 177, 1x 171)
Best 501 = 15 darts   Best Finish 170 (Pro Darter)


Current Darts .... Chizzy gold 24g, MVG XQ MAX originals 23g, Target Rob Cross 23g with  Gold storm points, 

Previously owned Darts .... Too many to list!

Yes, I like two tone darts.

Winmau Scott Waites 23g, they feel like 2.3g!
Maybe they don't suit my throw, they fly like paper airplanes

Bottelson GT. Yuk. I cant throw them, others over the years have tried them and liked them. Just not enough to pay enough for them to allow me to recoup my loss on them sufficiently.

I really should add a few of my own more recent mis-buys but that would mean admitting I was wrong, or sucked in by the hype, wouldn't it? OK, I wish I hadn't taken the bait on the Unicorn Gripper CGs, as I said in my "show me your darts" review https://www.dartsnutz.net/forum/showthre...?tid=18815.
I can't figure out the best place to hold these things, I get better groupings throwing sardines; don't try that at home!
The Uniboffin has a lot to answer for, it's his fault. "My name is D'Artist and I'm a dartaholic" Damn!

I also took the same bait, waited months for them tried them for 10 mins they are back in the package they came in. Felt light also.

Bought these many years ago out of a darts catalogue, mainly as I was curious and was exploring different throwing styles/grips. They aren't in the best of health (would need re-pointing if I was to use them again - but doubt I would..) I didn't use them for long and soon put them away.. Unfortunately all my 'stuff' got shoved into bin-liners when I moved out of my folks old Victorian town house, and ended up in the cellar where it was pretty damp Sad ..don't ask what my books looked like..  blubber ..most had to be chucked.. I only recently discovered my darts stuff again after clearing their house out after my dad passed away.

Pinnerton 'Profile', probably about 18g (would have to weigh them) as I was throwing light 17g darts back in the days
