Ronny's darts are a classic straight barrel dart with a minimal amount of grip but they are a very solid feeling 95% tungsten. They retail for £30 and are part of the Unicorn Contender range. You can find more info on the Unicorn site here: Ronny Huybrechts darts

CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:


The darts come in the usual plastic clamshell style packaging and inside is a compact plastic case with 8 flight protectors. The barrels are fitted with Gripper 3 shafts with spring clips and Ronny Huybrechts signature flights:

The darts are mostly smooth except for the 2 small sections of ring grip near the front and towards the rear. The grip on the ring sections is a little grippier than I first thought, its got quite deep grooves and the rings are quite thin and edgy so I would say its a high medium. The smooth section in the middle has Ronnys nick name etched in "The Rebel".

WEIGHT:


The darts were quite closely matched just 4 hundredths of a gram difference between lightest and heaviest:

BALANCE:

With nothing attached the balance was pretty much in the centre of the barrel:

With the supplied set up it moved a past centre:

MY GRIP WITH THESE:

I was gripping near and on the front ring section, I also tried throwing from the middle and the rear, balance was very nice from the middle but too weird for me from the rear:

CONCLUSION:

The first thing that struck me about these when I took them out the box was the very solid feel they had, they have a nice feel of weightiness and solidity which I can only guess comes from the higher % tungsten at 95% but they seemed to feel heavier than 23g to me.

The dart is a very classic simple design but that's no bad thing as it will mean the dart can and does suit a lot of styles but if you really need some grip its only got the two narrow ring sections. I felt for me personally these were more than adequate in grip but a little too narrow in width, I think an extra 2 or 3 more rings would have felt perfect, but of course the darts are designed to suit Ronny Huybrechts and the grip is his preference.

Balance of the dart was quite nice with my front grip but seemed a lot sweeter at the middle but it felt kind of off when I threw them from the rear but its more likely the fact its just not my natural position to grip from.

The darts were nice and steady through the air but I felt like they dipped a little for me at first but soon got used to them and was finding them a satisfying dart to throw.

Overall they are a nice solid dart but I think the small grip section could be an issue for those that need more grip.

SUMMARY RATINGS:

Looks: 7.5 (basic design but quite a pleasing understated look)
Grip: 7 (on a 1 to 10 Scale, 10 been severe grip)
Weight match: 8 (fairly close)
Quality: 8 (has a nice solid feel about them, neatly machined too)
Value: 8 (seems fine price for 95% tungsten)
Suitability for me: 7 (had some good throws since and like the feel)

Best Feature: Nice solid feel Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Rings are quite deep cut just wish there was an extra 2 or 3 to make those sections a bit longer Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Thanks Rich, yeah I find that with a lot of darts I often feel me self thinking if this was there or that was longer etc, but I guess we have to accept its designed for a particular player the way they want it.
