Voks Design A Darts Winning Darts Review

Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AHfooiAFRU

A while ago Voks ran their competition for people to enter their own darts designs. It just so happened that our very own Greg AKA Rebel was the winner! He got 5 sets of darts made to his design and very kindly me sent me a set too. So here they are.

I actually reviewed these a good few weeks ago but only just got round to editing and uploading the review but I remember a lot of people commenting at the time he won that they would like to have a set too, and I think they would make a great dart for a lot of people Guests cannot see images in the messages.

CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:


The darts came in a Voks box which is a neat design with a kind of flapped lid with a couple of magnets inside to hold in place and a plastic window to show the contents. The barrels were fitted with some short nylon two tone stems and supplied with some slim flights a point protector and mini Voks wallet:

The barrels have a very grippy double ring grip which is a high level grip and with a scallop section at the rear which has a medium level kind of flat micro style grip.

BALANCE:

With nothing attached the barrel is front weighted:

With the supplied set up it moves a little closer to the centre but still a front weighted bias:

Balance with my own medium, short and extra short nylon stems and standard flights:

MY GRIP WITH THESE DARTS:


Was pretty happy gripping near the front with these and it has a slightly chunky feel but a great grip!

CONCLUSION:

I think Greg has come out with a very functional yet great looking design here and Voks have done a great job at making them too.

The double ring grip is very nice but the scallop is as I normally find very comfy to grip but its too far from my natural grip for me.

I think it works well for front grippers and should be great for rear grippers who like a front weighted dart.

Darts felt lighter in my grip that what they should do, I think its because the scallop and the weight bias must be making it so it was closer to the balance point for my grip. I also found for me that when I tried some medium stems they flew a fair deal better, I think it was quite sweet with mediums on. Barrels are a touch longer than I normally like so was a little surprised the mediums worked better but it could be the way it affects the weight balance again.

I did try throwing from the rear scallop but it was just too strange for me, should be great for you natural rear grippers though.

Darts were a little bit zippy through the air with my front grip but on the whole they had a nice stable flight.

So a good dart really and may be one I think we should get made a few more of?

Well done Greg! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I have only 3 full sets left due to a 'board hanging malfunction' and as these are me match darts I am sorry Edgar but the cookie jar is empty Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Hopefully if they prove popular after Darren's review, who knows, maybe we can look at getting a few extra sets - I know I would like a couple more sets in an ideal world Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Yes..... Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. <- I broke a dart.... Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

The weight of the board landing on it forced the point to crack a chip in the nose of the barrel - I am thinkiing I will send it to be drilled out to be used as soft tips so not all bad. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

That rear scallop is similar to the Jamie Caven's

Yeah, it was supposed to be like the Gary Anderson Phase 2 mid scallop but moved towards the rear - a few on Facebook commented that they look like Jamie Cavens... I hadn't seen them before hand so I didnt copy them like but on looking they are a similar shape, I prefer the grip on these though Guests cannot see images in the messages.

I may get a set of Cavens at some point just to compare the 2.

Nice review and design guys
may all the doubles be with you

I think they look awesome and like the two tone stems. One day I'll have to throw a scallop barrel, maybe after you market the design??
