Tungsten Putty tutorial for adding weight to soft/steel tip darts
Damn,

it could be so easy. Very cool idea. I had used a piece of a tungsten electrode normally, but that is always tricky and dont work with many darts.

The putty is a very elegant solution.

Make sure you guys watch the worldwide darts the pedo darter tutorial on this on youtube. Apparently there are two types of tungsten putty; dry one (easy to handle and remove), and wet one (a gift from Lucifer, unhandleable, sticky, impossible to remove). Guess which one I have..

Where did you get yours? I have one that's about in the middle of sticky and dry....

From some fishing webshop. When thinking about it, it makes sense that it is sticky for a fishing line. Still looking for dry one.. And a cheap scale.

Glad I found this thread. I tried removing the putty from my Phil Taylor Gen 3s but was struggling. I used toothpicks and the points but it wasn't working. I'll buy some drill bits and try that instead.

I just completed my first significant weight bump on a set of Target 24g Perfect Storm. They were drilled out more than any other dart I've tried. I was able to add 1 full gram to them, bringing them up to my preferred weight of 25g. And there is probably room for more.

They say you learn something every day, this thread is that something, brilliant tutorial, opens up a lot of possibilities, I'm feeling some fine tuning coming on just for the heck of it. There's a few good looking sets of barrels out there that I'd never use because they're too light.

Good job! Great tutorial. Thanks

Well, I've just got new darts recently and I was pleased with how close they were each to another (within 0.01g) but here are my to thoughts to the subject anyway.

1. In the case you're putting some weight into soft tip darts mind there are some limits. If you increase the weight limit for the dartboards being used in your area you may damage these dartboards, you may break more tips than usually and you will also find how unexpectedly noisy your darts will land in the dartboard. You may not be the only one who notices...

2. I had a set of 24g Harrows Bristow darts which was quite odd with differencies up to 0.3g between each dart. I lend these darts to a mate and he managed to hit a 9 darter with them. Apparently he couldn't care less while I might have thought I can't be that successful due to the differencies...

Wow, GREAT tutorial. Impressive, I would have never thought of doing something like this. Thanks for the info.

I’m still new to this site so I can’t see the images, but what I read is great, can’t wait to comeback to this thread and check out the pictures that go along with the written text.
I just wish I could see the images.
I will just have to read more and post a few more comments and I will be an accepted member and a true dart nut. Pretty sure I’m destined to be a dart nut. I couldn’t see the pictures of the scale you are using but I have seen the reviews of some darts by Getagrip, matter of fact that was how I found this site, (the reviews of dart boards, and darts are excellent), in the dart reviews I saw the scale being used looked like the Pesola that I have.
I can relate to the OCD comment, first thing I did when I bought my first set of darts was measured each to determine if they were close in weight.
The idea of using tungsten putty to trim the weight of the darts is a great idea regarding the matching of dart weights. I was considering removing some material from the back using a drill press but using the putty to trim is easier and reversible.
Thanks for the information
A+

Great post, i didn't know that this stuff was available but have now purchased some and got my darts all the same weight now, brilliant idea.

Does anyone know if the putty is heavier than tungsten if it was the same size?

Tungsten Putty is more similar to lead in density.
Tungsten is ~40% more dense than lead.

Thanks for the putty to tungsten weight ratio, i was hoping to make a set of slim 20 gram darts into 22 gram by drilling them out and using the putty, but this wont work.
