Brands to stay away from...
Being a beginner I am overwhelmed by the volumes of different dart brands. Are there any brands that I should stay away from while trying to be a serious player?

I personally can't advise you not to a particular brand as they all have good designs. If you are new to the beautiful game however, my advise would be to stick to the cheaper end of the market. At least until you have decided on which grip you prefer and your ideal weight. Good Luck

My best advice, given in another post, is to buy a set of darts you like and throw them.

Don't worry about tungsten content.
Don't worry if a 'Pro' uses them.
Don't worry if they are 'Match Weighted'

If you are looking at playing darts seriously I would suggest tungsten over brass. If by chance you enjoy this wonderfully challenging and rewarding game and end up playing a lot you'll almost certainly switch to tungsten. This means getting used to a new barrel, etc etc. A good set of tungstens is not expensive, so it's almost silly to start with brass really.

If you play long enough or gain enough interest chances are good you'll be buying at least another set...or two....or three in your lifetime.

I personally (speaking for myself mind you) would run from American made darts. Thats my opinion. why? Over priced to the max most of the time. You can get a quality dart from Pure ( McCoy line comes to mind) at a verry reasonable price. Thats my opinion. And I'm American btw.

American darts are made as well as anybody's if not better than most! ( Bottleson,LASERDARTS) They are over priced but nothing wrong with the darts if you don't mind spending the $$

So it's a price issue, not a quality issue

You are correct. I should have been more specific. They are well made just not worth the price.

Yes it's price -that's why I said what I did. They are making it sound as if American darts are poor quality wich is not the case.

well I have had and got a few american made darts, the quality is fine but I do agree that the price is not, but I cant give you a reason as to why that is, but must have something to do with the home market as when Target darts are sold in the U.S. they are generally a lot more expensive to buy than here.

Maybe the volume of sales is greater in the U.K. so they can sell them cheaper?

Same kind of deal with the Japanese darts -very well made just over priced. The U.S. companies don't mass produce the amount that they do in the U.K. so the cost is more. Everything is more expensive in Japan also leading to their inflated prices.

Thus I can buy 2-3 sets of quality darts ,say from Pure for what I would pay for Laser darts. Hell probably 4 sets lol.
