First a note for Red Dragon: If a set of darts have any type of grip on the points please don't jam them into a point protector, it's a nightmare to get them out. Otherwise you're a fantastic company. That and the gunge on the points of my MVG darts that I couldn't get off are the only problems I've had with you as a company.

I wanted a set of darts with a tiny grip on the point. I thought because of the way I hold a dart these would be ideal.

The darts arrived within two days of purchase, as you would expect from Red Dragon. 

To me the darts feel very cheaply made. They feel lighter than 24g, but they are 24g, if that makes any sense? They don't feel they could take much wear and tear at all...They just feel well, to be honest, flimsy. 

The grip on the darts is listed at 3 out of 5. I would agree with that. 

I had a good few days on the board with these darts and the weight was really bugging me, so I decided to use both these and my Red Dragon Patriot 24g with the same stems and flights. The Patriots feel so much more well made. 

This is just my personal opinion and you could feel different if you do purchase them but in terms of grip they're fine, my overall problem with these darts is the quality. It just feels like they're not going to last long. They feel like a cheap set of darts but they are priced like a good set should be priced. 

If you do purchase these darts or have done in the past please tell me if you also had any problems getting them out of the point protectors, it took me a good few minutes. Not the brightest idea Red Dragon has had. 

I'm going to give them 3*** from 5*****

Nice review mate, I know what you mean about points like that been stuck in point protectors lol, experienced that too but I really just prefer plain black coated points any way Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Surprised about your thoughts on the quality feel though but can get what you mean as its a difficult thing to describe as sometimes darts have a feel to them that is hard to point into words but you just know if it feels good.

Red Dragons are usually pretty good quality though.

Will give you a +1 when I switch to the Sleeq theme Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

i had a set of these and thought they were excellent. i have noticed that some target models can also feel lighter than they actually are. i don't normally use 24g so i doubt i woudl have noticed that they felt different to another 24g model. if RD made these in 22g they would almost certainly be my go to darts.

i got a smooth set of Jenkins darts once from ebay that had knurled points fitted. it took ages to get them out of the point protector as they had been jammed in tight up to the barrel. they were stuck fast and smooth darts have nowhere you can get purchase on them.

I know mate but check out the two pics the RD site has knurling then smooth bit then rings....the pic of him holding the dart has knurled bit two rings then bigger smooth bit???

Also the knurling starts one ring too high?

Nice dart either way I've tried the Bristow version and it's lovely Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

good spot, I think there was some Bristow Durro darts in this style though with the knurled ring.
