Bulls Curvex C3 22g darts review


Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqCoXUrczFQ


I got these darts a while ago just around the time they first came out in Germany.

The Curvex range has three models available, C1, C2 and C3. This is the C3 model and each model has 2 weights, these C3 are available in 22g and 24g, this is the 22g version. They are 90% tungsten and quite a long dart and retail around £52 now in the U.K.

You can find more info here: Curvex C3

CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:

The darts come in a slim box and inside there is a Bulls Cone case which you have to clip together. The darts are fitted with a set of the new Bulls Techno Ali stems which have additional grip zones, these are short size and there is a set of Power Flite 100 micron standard shape flights.

The darts are quite sleek looking and have a kind of flat ring grip on the tapered nose and then a mainly smooth section before the main ringed Curvex grip on the bulk of the rear half of the barrel. I found both grips to be around a high medium level of grip although I think I preferred the the grip on the tapered nose a little more Guests cannot see images in the messages.

With nothing attached the balance was quite central:

With the supplied set up the balanced moved a touch past centre:

MY GRIP WITH THESE DARTS:

I tried gripping in the middle and rear for experimental purposes but with my natural front grip I felt very comfy on these darts and liked the feel of the front grip of the barrel Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Darts landed in an upward angle for me:

CONCLUSION:

I found these darts to be very easy to throw for some reason, may be the length and weight has something to do with it but they just felt effortless to throw. I was surprised though to find that they work really well with my front grip and I felt very comfortable holding them at the front in spite of their rather long length. I think having the short stems on is wise for me though, I think a medium stem would be smacking me in the face lol

But I don't really think they are meant to be for front grippers as the main Curvex grip is on the rear section. I tried throwing from the centre and the rear and it should be fine for people who throw naturally from there but I felt quite at home with my front grip.

I actually prefer the feel of the grip at the front, they are kind of like a flat ring with slanted sides to the rings, had a nice level of grip for me. The Curvex grip is fine I just prefer the front. I would say both grips are high medium though.

I just had a slight bit of fishtailing on some throws, I think its more because of the length, but on the whole they are nicely weighted through the air and landed quite tail up.

Quality is very nice again from Bulls and another set that are perfectly match weighted.

So I think the darts is mainly for rear grip and centre style grips but I think if your a front gripper like me you just might find they work well for you too Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
