The Paladin darts are from One80's Semi-Pro level range, that does not mean you have to be a semi-pro to use them, I think its more that the grip of the darts is such that you need to have a confident release with it been a high level of grip. If you need a grippy dart the Paladin have a shark / Razor style grip that you can feel taking affect as you push the darts toward the board upon release.

They are a 90% tungsten dart and are handmade to a very high standard. They are supplied with medium nylon stems and standard shape flights. The darts come in this slim line packaging and are cased in what is called a Solibox:

As you can see the Solibox is a hard plastic case with a style all its own and allows the darts to be stored fully assembled albeit with the flights flattened down. The lid lifts off so you can remove the darts. The case is fine and I kind of like it actually, however there is no extra storage space for additional flights and stems.

The darts are a straight barrelled dart with 2 sections of Shark grip separated by a small smooth section in the middles:

The weight of the set up as it comes:

Barrels are very closely matched in weight:

The balance point I think was very slightly to the right of centre with the supplied set up:

Here is my grip on these darts:

These darts retail at £39.99 but are £34.99 at Mikes store and with the 25% discount offered for first 50 purchase that will bring the price to around £26 which is a real bargain!

The One80 range is of a very good quality and I like the fact that the darts are handmade. My one pet hate though is silver points, I always find them very slippy when resting my finger on the point and I much prefer the black coated points. No big deal though, thats just me been picky.

The grip on these darts is quite aggressive and a little off putting for me personally, but you can feel its affect when throwing the dart, it feels like it is picking up an extra forward momentum. As my release is not the best it should be I think it needs a little more concentration on my behalf when throwing such a dart. However if you struggle with your grip you will probably love it.

I have to say though I am impressed with the One80 range of darts, quality is far better than I was expecting and there is some great designs, and you get a more than useful case to keep your darts safe.

I am going to give these 4/5 if the grip was more my style they would get 5/5 for sure. Big Grin

Darts may only get a 4/5 but your review gets 5/5 as does the fantastic 25% discount!!

Brilliant review once again Darren and fantastic offer on these darts, they don't do it for me personally, a bit long and I hold exactly where there is no grip but they certainly look a steal at £26!

A big +1 from me mate

Thanks for another great review. I have a new set of the one80 shadows. Arrived today,
Can you tell us if the 25% is off the hole range of one80 darts or only the Paladin range, as I have just had a look at the Baravarin 23g , and the dart looks like it belongs in my room. Very imprested in the one80 range. Good on ya Grip.

myrddin56

Terrific review; very comprehensive, plus a great discount for the darts; wish I could justify another purchase!
A note about the Solibox case; there is a sleeve that you can purchase that slips over the hard case that has a couple of pockets for spare flights

Murphy180

Excellent review Grip

As always

thanks for the link not what im aafter 3 types im interested in are the perfect storms 21g or 22g carrera c3 21g both exspensive are maybe the value set i looked at are the performance dart same weight would value your opinion the dart reviews are great 10/10

getagrip

The Performance darts are great darts too, I have a 25g set and a 23g set, I really like them. They have a nice micro grip barrel but not sure how well that will last as it wears quite quick, so I guess it depends how much grip you need on a dart.

Also when you click on the buy it now button at Pure Darts for the Carreras the price is reduced to £43 I think.

You can click the Buy it now button without actually having to pay for it at that point.

yeah that was my worry about the performance dart you might after a year of use end up with a level one grip on darts the missus thinks i spend to much time on here now lol
