Shot! 901 90% Tungsten 24g Darts Review
Got these from Dartswarehouse in New Zealand, was sent on 20th July and I received them on 23rd of July, pretty amazing delivery speeds from the other side of the world!

The sites link is here: Click

They cost £28.21

They come in a slim pack and inside the darts are fitted with white short stems and pink Shot! flights. There is a point protector and a Steel darts holder and a little cloth bag to carry them in.

Personally I think the cloth bag and steel darts holder are a bit pointless, and would be just as happy to see a standard bar wallet or plastic case, but thats nit picking anyway as most people buy a specific case, so its no big issue.

As you can see from the pics the darts are straight barrelled but with a razor style grip.

As you may be aware I am not a big fan of aggressive shark/Razor grips, however the effect on these barrels is more subtle probably because the edges are wider spaced and not as sharply angled. One curious thing I found was that if I run my thumb from the front of the barrel towards the shaft, it almost feels like a smooth dart. As soon as I move the opposite direction the grip bites immediately.

The barrels are maybe a little long for me at nearly 52mm long, but I think the short stems help compensate.

Here is the pics as I measured them:

The one thing I was amazed by was the fact that with my scales each barrel weighed exactly 24g! :affraid:

Dont think I have ever had a set where all three darts weighed exactly the same, and at the stated weight too.

Here is the balance points with Medium, short and extra short stems:

I had a play with them for about 30 mins using them as they came, one thing I noticed was the grip seemed to help with the forward pushing of the darts, was quite a curious thing at first and I think it helped add a bit of extra velocity to my throwing of the darts, my first 3 darts were ok but I almost hit a 180 with my next 3 so had to include a pic of those too!

This is my grip with these darts:

I still felt a little conscious of the grippines of the grip and felt it may have put me off a little, but think that these are not as aggressive as some razor grips so will be worth me persevering with them for a while and see if I get used to it.

Overall a very nice dart and of a high quality and standard.

WoW nice darts, a less aggressive razor grip would be great and who can complain about the accuracy in the weight. Shot must be doing some serious QA to get them that accurate and some awesome customer assistance to get them delivered that fast (should only take a couple of hr,s to Aus lol), good to know as I haven't had much to do with them. This dart has all the attributes I like in a barrel long, skinny and grippy, fingers crossed for 26's, going to have a look now.
Thank for the review Darren +1 for the dart candy.

Glad you liked it and thanks for the comments guys.

I did this a while ago now but I just done a video review of them too to go with this.

Not sure I will get it uploaded today and I go away tomorrow so will see.

But before I switched the camera on I had a few throws and nearly hit a 180 on my first throw, hit quite a few more T20's then thought I had better switch the camera on quick!

As soon as I did I was all over the place LOL, I'm still not used to the pressure of been in front of the camera :lol2:

They are a nice dart though but still maybe a little bit too grippy for me, I might put these up for a comp soon.Smile

Well give the forum and my review a mention Dirty if you order some, I'm sure they will be pleased to hear about it Smile

Shot and Puma darts have some very nice looking designs and the quality is very good.
