Hankey's atomized or silver?
I would appreciate any help, as I'm considering to try them out, but the shop only has the silver finish type here.

I like them both, but for me the silver finish has more grip.

Do some homework and search. Take a look here, I did a search for Hankey at DC and they have lots in stock. Not sure what weight you need. https://www.dartscorner.co.uk/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=Hankey&osCsid=3b0ad034a189b25854239c3a943f1581&x=81&y=16
You don't mess with The Voice of Reason. You have the right to be wrong.

And sorryl, I think I wasn't clear enough.My question is about the difference of the two types , gripwise.
Does the atomized(or shotblast) finish add to the grip?

By far the silver ones are more grippy. But be patient when you first start throwing them. It takes about 5-10 minutes for the barrel to warm up to your fingertips before they offer the best grip.

That's interesting, I would have never ever thought that the silver was more grippier..cause it has to have the smoother surface of the two, you would think.
But I trust you, as I've seen you have a tiny little amount of experience with them..Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Only ever used the atmoised ones and they are without doubt the slippiest dart I have ever tried! They just did not suit or sit well in my hands at all

I agree with Elusive. I used the silver Hankey's for quite a while and then I was sent a set of the atomized ones. They never warmed up to my fingertips. It was like throwing a piece of dry cardboard. They were the worst darts I ever owned. But the silver ones are some of the best darts I've ever used. But as with anything darts related, it's all personal preference. I know of a couple people on the forum that love the atomised ones.

Ok.Thx.
And I saw that u modified them to 17g or so, and now u use an 18g Nodor set, so the 14g Hankeys were too light for you?

I used the 14g ones for a couple years with great success. I played my best darts with them. For some unknown reason I began to experiment with a couple different darts and different weights. Combined with a couple other factors I've lost 15 points off my average. I'm highly tempted to go back to 14g and stick with it. Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Another good thing about the 14g Hankey's is that they can be filled with tungsten powder/putty and you can have any weight from 14.2g (with Storms) up to 17 grams. It's one of the only steel tip darts that's hollow. A huge benefit imo.

I've not tried the atomised ones but I bought the 25g silver version a few weeks ago and absolutely adore them! I did a review a while back: https://www.dartsnutz.net/showthread.php?tid=13518

Hope it helps!

Then you should go back to them my friendGuests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
I'm considering to drop the weight, but 14g seems a little bit frightening after 22g.Also a massive change in the length, from 53 to 43 mills.
On the other hand I'm very curious about the Hankey darts.
Anyway, thank you for your help!
