This is actually the smartest way of doing it. If could go back to when I started, I would have definitely bought a bunch of inexpensive barrels in different grips/shapes to see what works best.

One thing you didn't address is weight. I would keep all 3 barrels as the same weight so you have consistency between them. That way you can focus on the shape/grip and eliminate the weight variable. There is certain shapes I cannot throw at all and it doesn't matter if it's 20g or 26g, the barrel just never feels right.

I think the 3 main barrel shapes are torpedo, straight, tapered/front loaded.

Good start...

Something to be said about times past before the internet and online shopping. When I first got into darts, if you wanted t buy a set of darts you went to a darts shop where they had a setup and you could try out darts to your hearts content and then buy a set, a case and a bunch of flights and shafts and stuff. I move around a lot and don't live in a city (actually, I live on a boat). Do these type shops still exist? I remember throwing little Bumble Bees, heavy Hammer Heads and everything in between, some just for the fun of it and others to actually consider buying during visits to the dart shop. Also, there was a guy who came by the bars with a suitcase full of dart stuff. Not sure if he was affiliated with a brick and mortar shop. Now you have to buy half a dozen sets to figure out what works best for you and still wonder about maybe something a little different.
I do all my own stunts.

Yeah what reg said or get to a shop that let's you try.
Most people I know from my home town Dundee just picked up a set and played with them and stuck to them. Had the same set for years without a care to look at the new darts or anything. They literally spend nothing on darts. Just get some cheap shafts and flights when they need to.

Part of me wishes I was like that as I've spent hundreds in the last couple of years trying to find the one, yet they play with whatever set they were given or bought for a cheap price and stuck with them. No worries about changing darts or going back to a back up set, just playing.

But I do love trying new darts! Vicious cycle

If you were to experiment with weight, than I personally would try the front weighted in 22g, the straight in 24g and the torpedo in 26g - a good range.

All the best.

I bought one set of darts about 12-14 years ago when I was in college... stuck with those... never even bought shafts or flights in that time. Then again, I didn't play a whole lot, either.

Then I found this forum..... lmao.... NOW I've got five sets of darts, countless flights & a whole bunch of different stems.

i get this in this forum too. but i think i got myself a darts that suit me (or everyone else in this forum since i've read all the review and get this darts through this forum) - barney's phase 2 -

all those darts that i want to buy just for my friends who just get into darts world. there is a shop in malaysia that let u try first. but there is no mccoy or puredarts here for beginner like us. and i dont want to spend £35 for golden (not pixel grip) target chizzy's here. the price jump to high.

i agreed with u COF. i think i want to buy darts weight 23or24g. since ive read that light darts is not good for beginner.

and thanks reg, for those links. i will take a looks of those darts n mybe looks at other darts that match the weight i look for.

btw thanks all mate, for all the advise. really apreciated it.
Trying to be better darts player insyaAllah.
