TITAN REVIEWS - Monster Soldier No.5 18g
Hello Nutz! Welcome to the first of many TITANNN REVIEWSSSS! Up 1st, if you hadn't already guessed from the teaser I posted earlier, is the Monster Soldier No.5 18g 90% tungsten darts inspired by Monster's Leonard 'The Soldier' Gates.

Up First, we'll start with a close up pic of the barrels. They are beautiful darts. They are very thin and long for a Monster dart:

Length, Width, and Description:
-These beauties come in at a whopping 52.04mm long and 6.01mm thin. Pretty long for a soft tip dart but they fly nice with the right setup. I broke the dart up into 3 different sections. The rear of the barrel consists of 24.96mm of micro shark grip. To me, its the perfect amount and size for a great grip. The mid section is the smooth dip/scallop that is on a lot of Monster's new darts. It is 6.08mm long.

-I split the dart up into 3 different sections. The rear of the barrel consists of a 2.10mm smooth section and then a quite lengthy 24.96mm of micro shark grip. For me, this section is a little too long. I would rather it be cut in half and the mid section be farther to the rear. But, the shark grip feels great. Its the perfect size shark grip and feels great, not aggressive at all. The rear of the barrel is 2BA threading for standard size shafts, and is drilled out 20.86mm.

-The mid section is the smooth dip/scallop that is on a lot of Monster's new darts. It is 6.08mm long and 5.62mm thick, the thinnest section on the dart besides the tapered nose and no.5 point.

-The front of the barrel is 18.07mm long from the end of the scallop to the tip. It consists of dimples circling the barrel, followed by dimpled lines circling the barrel, followed by 4 rings and, then a tapered nose. The nose is 4.5mm thick. It has a No.5 threading and is drilled out 9.56mm deep. (The measurer would not fit all the way in due to the threading, so I used a soft tip tip to show how deep it goes)

Overall, these are amazing darts. They are long and sleek and if you love a thin barreled dart like One80 Dragons these are the darts for you. The grip is great and so is the balance. I can throw these by gripping the rear or gripping the mid section. They also fly great with no.5 conversion points. Monster darts are great quality darts and the Monster Soldier is a great example of it.

Also, if anyone is thinking about buying the Monster Soldier, I recommend buying the soft tip version and no.5 conversion points because both steel and soft tip versions are 18g total weight. This way you get the best of both worlds.

I hope you guys enjoyed my first review. Many more to come!

Very nice James + 1
Hows the grip on the front from 1-5?
Reply
thanks Larry. The grip on the front from 1-5 I would say its a 3. The dimples are sharp and kind of feels like the cortex grip when running your finger across it lol
