Darts Ink 23g darts review

video link = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wi_fS40_EiU


This is a range of darts from Retriever Sports that have a very colourful rainbow coating and are only available to buy from their ebay site here: https://stores.ebay.co.uk/dartsclearance/

They are 80% tungsten and are great value at just £18!

The darts come in a very neat and compact plastic pack which has been cleverly designed to hold stems, darts and flights in a very neat small space. They are supplied with gold alloy stems which are pre-fitted with rubber "O" rings and the very nice Tattoo girl flights.

The darts are a simple ring grip design which I would say is low medium to medium level grip. If you look closely at the first and fifth ring you will see that it is slightly indented or scalloped, this is quite subtle but when it came to throwing the darts I could feel it just enough and it helped with the thrusting forward of the darts. The colouring on these is some of the deepest rainbow effect I have seen, very vibrant indeed Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

DIMENSIONS:

Length:

Not too long.

WEIGHT:

Two barrels were closely matched, just 1 hundredth of a gram difference and the third was 1.1 tenths heavier so pretty close overall:

BALANCE:

With nothing attached the barrels were mostly front weighted, the balance point is on the front edge of the eraser below:

With the supplied set up it moved just about to the centre, may be a touch past it:

With my own medium, short and extra short nylon stems and standard flights:

I was gripping the darts around the front rings, was a chunky but comfy grip:

CONCLUSION:

They are a very colourful dart as you can see but the colours are very deep and strong which was the first thing I noticed. The dart is great fro a front gripper like me and I found it to suit me well, hit a few T20's on my first few goes and a lot of T5's annoyingly. I think it flew very steadily for me and that little subtle indent on the first ring was helping locate my grip point and also had some affect with throwing the dart. For the most part since playing with them after doing my video review they have been flying well and quite accurately, seem to go well with my loopy style which is good.

I don't know if they will suit a rear grip though, I guess it may depend on if your a Steve Beaton style of rear gripper that throws a front weighted dart well but I suspect they wont suit the majority of rear grippers. Front grippers will like them and may be some middle grippers too.

The darts are a steal at this price though and well worth it! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
