The darts have a very deep black finish, I think its a black ti coating but cant find the info to be sure but it really sets off the profile of the darts beautifully and gives them a very nice sleek and sexy look. The scallop section of the rear has a micro grip which is a high medium level of grip and the front of the barrel is smooth but the coating gives a little grippiness, the rest of the barrel is made up if a thin ring style which is also about a high medium level of grip.

WEIGHT:

Two barrels were the same weight and the third was just 6 hundredths of a gram heavier so very good weight match overall:

BALANCE:

With nothing attached the balance was just a little front of centre:

With the supplied set up it moved a little more to the rear:

MY GRIP:

I held these on the front with my normal grip and although there is no physical grip on the barrel the coating was helping to some extent. I tried gripping at the middle and rear too. The rear was comfortable in the scallop but a little weird for me to throw so far from my natural grip but not as bad as I was expecting, throwing from the middle was ok though.

Darts landed mostly tail up and yes that's another throw that I missed out on a 180 Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

CONCLUSION:

These are very nice looking darts but I was not expecting them to work so well with my front grip, may be the scallop section at the rear was making me think they are just for rear grippers but they throw a whole lot better with my grip than I thought and were nice to throw, they seemed to release well from my fingers, may be the fact its smooth at the part I gripped is the reason for that.

I think they might suit a rear gripper best but I also thought they threw ok from the front so may be a more versatile dart than they first appear.

The black coating is great on these, very deeply blacked and has a nice feel too. Quality is very nice on these.

The darts seemed to fly a little flatter when I held it at the rear which was a little surprising but with my normal front grip its flight was pretty much steady with just a little kick up at the rear which settled quickly.

A very nice dart indeed Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Had and sold a set of these. Had storms in them. A very nice dart, but the scallop was a few millimeters too far back for my throw.

I was thinking before I finished the review that they would look good with a black storm point, it would make the profile extra slick Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Great review. Not sure I would want the dart all black. I like the contrast on the point. If the point was black too maybe have to lighten up the shaft and flight. That's just me thought on looks. Think I'd get them too if the scallop was closer to the point, again that's just me.
Nothing left to do but Smile Smile Smile

If I collected darts for looks, I would have kept them... for sure.

I wish the scallop was either further forward, or back. my grip was half-on half-off... and that really was too inconsistent.

The pics!!!!! Just wow!!! Every single review you do, I'm simply blown away by the pics! Your pics are far and away the best pics of darts I've ever seen on the internet. And that includes ANY dart shop.

In all seriousness... shops (except DClol) should be contacting you to take pics of their inventory. It would 100% increase sales. Plus you could work from home. Dart companies as well. Your pics are far better then I see on Winmau, One80, Cosmo or any other site.

Yep very nice but not for me- rear gripper should love these though. Nice review as usual Darren.
