Shot Digit 23g darts review

Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgpbeKNqi1s&feature=youtu.be


Another review of the Shot Digit darts, this is a review of the 23g series 1 model which is also available in 25g and there is the Series 0 which I reviewed here: https://www.dartsnutz.net/showthread.php?tid=13554 they are also available in soft tip. Again, I got them from Dartswarehouse.com they are an 80% tungsten dart with a very nice micro style grip called Digit grip and a slightly more aggressive ring grip in the scalloped sections. They retail for around £28 - £29 depending on the exchange rate with free delivery. You can find more info at Dartswarehouse.com here: Digit Series 1 darts

CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:


The darts come in Shot slimline packaging and are fitted with inbetween polycarbonate stems and Shot Digit flights.

The darts have a kind of double scallop shape and like the series 0 they are kind of unique looking too. The series 1 model has less aggressive rings in the scallop sections than it was in the single centre section of the 0 model. It is still a high medium grip verging on a high level grip though.

WEIGHT:


Two barrels were fairly close in match but the third was sixteen hundredths of a gram heavier than the lightest barrel, still its nothing any one is likely to feel as its 1.6 tenths of a gram but nevertheless its out a little more than I would have expected Guests cannot see images in the messages.

BALANCE:


With nothing attached the balance was slightly front of centre:

With the supplied set up it moved pretty much dead centre:

MY GRIP WITH THESE DARTS:


Oh yes very nice, a grip where I instantly felt right at home, it fitted like a glove and was very comfy Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

CONCLUSION:


Well I said in my review of the 22g series 0 how much I liked those darts but I like these even more! From my very first throw my grip just sat in that front scallop perfectly and it just felt so right there as if it had been made for me. I doubt if anyone will remember but I had posted a pic of some old 1950's or 60's Unicorn brass darts I had got, they had a similar front to these and I think they are called Swan Neck brass. I only ever had a few throws with those darts as they were in mint condition and I did not want to damage them but I remember how much I like that grip and these Shot Digit are even better than they felt. The Digit grip adds to it overall but the addition of the little sharp edged rings adds that little extra again. It is not as aggressive as on the Series 0 model but still has just the right level of grip for me.

Apart from feeling very comfortable with that front grip the darts flew really well from there and just seemed so well balanced it was effortless to throw them. I often say that sometimes holding a scallop is very comfortable but not always easy to release the dart from, I had no issues with these, they released nice and clean every throw Guests cannot see images in the messages.

I tried from the centre and the rear too. I think if your a centre gripper you might possibly like them but I think the front and rear sections are probably the best spots to grip the darts and I definitely think its worth a try for front grippers.

Great darts! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Excellent review once again. You underestimate the grip again :p I feel if they would combine this shape with the 0series and make a sort of Merve King barrel with that grip it would be awesome and appeal to a lot more people.

Cheers!

Not sure its more than an 8 for grip though as I don't think the Digit it grip is more than may be 7 or 7.5 and the edgy rings on this model are not as severe as they are on the series 0 but its also how my grip feels as a whole and because its resting on the scallop I don't feel they are too aggressive when it comes to throwing them, but we all feel things different Guests cannot see images in the messages.

An unusual and interesting dart. Any dart where you can grip it in the exact same spot always seems good in theory anyway. I have tried Kings and Penetrators but ultimately there is not enough grip.
As mentioned Kings with some physical grip (say a micro grip) would be popular I think.

Great review and pictures as ever.

Well I just received a set of these (Cheers Wonger :thumbupGuests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. and my very first impression of them is the amount of grip they have.  Of course grip level feel is different for everyone, but these have plenty.

Not thrown them yet however, but I'm looking very forward to having a go with these soon.  Will be interesting in seeing what setup works best too, my first thinking is tweenie stems and Unicorn XL Big Wings for some reason.  Will find out soon enough.
