thought id add a couple of sets of my own Darren.

The 1st set is well used and feel quite light.

and the second set is heavy and has never been thrown, the canes still need whittling a bit. (poor pic sorry missed part of the box)

Anyone know anything about Schofield darts

I toy with the idea of making some

What size are the barrel, length and diameter

What sizes and weights did they make

What is the length of the cane when new

Have you ever used hickory shafts in them

All the Best

I normally don't like smooth darts but those are super duper arrows guys. I like.

Hi Alec,

There is no real straight forward answer as they are differing weights and thickness and length. Should be easy enough to make though, its basically a hollowed brass tube with lead solder and a point.

I have measured a 26g set and the length is 62mm and 9.5mm thick.

Hope that helps.

A lot of the Photobucket stuff is lost as PB started to charge for hosting so people stopped using it.

Here's my late father's Schofield 'Lights'. He always carried them in an old cigar case. They've unfortunatly been kept in damp conditions so the metal rings have rusted. It would be nice to find out where I can get more cane shafts from and paper flights.

I've not put the flights on as I don't want to damage them. They are of great sentiment to me, and I only put plastic flights on when I use them.

Nice to see a set of Schofields, very popular in the 60/70's.
If you've got  a local fishing tackle shop, you might be able to buy a length of reed cane.
To replace your stems, a tip is to put in a pencil sharpener before splitting to take your flights.

 Ayup Shed, is thee a tyke as well?

Thanks, I'll have a search and see if I can find a fishing shop local to me. Though the rings might be a bit harder to locate as I doubt they'll be in a tackle shop.

I doubt you'll get the spring steel rings, but a good alternative is the plastic outer sleeve on coaxe cable.
Cut to size warm up in a bit of hot water and ease onto stem, fiber glass rod is a good replacement stem also.

Not sure what size you would need - I think 8mm - but try some local craft shops and see if they have any Rattan Centre Cane that you could use
