The darts have a great look to them with the blue highlighted features in the notches, diamond cuts and grooves.  Its s fairly straightforward profile with a tapered nose and has the grip in just the right spot for.  The grip is a nice combination of razor and thinly cut rings with the middle been mostly smooth except for the diamond cuts and more thinly cut rings at the rear.  I would say on the grippy sections its just about a high level of grip.

BALANCE:

With nothing attached the barrels are front weighted:

With the supplied set up the balance is just front of centre slightly:

MY GRIP WITH THESE DARTS:

The grippy section of razor and thin cut rings was just in the right place for me, was a nice grip here although I think the balance was a bit better nearer the centre:

I switched to some medium stems and the darts landed with my usual angle:

CONCLUSION:

This is a very nice looking dart and has a fairly simple design that works well especially with my front grip.  The grip section is in just the right place near the front and the finger sits nicely on the tapered nose making it quite comfy too.

I found that with the short stems fitted the darts flew quite zippy and was not completely happy with that but found it much improved when I switched to some medium stems as it was more to my liking then.

Overall the darts fly well through the air, I never noticed any problems but I did find that for me they were more stable with the medium stems and more stable and better balanced yet again when throwing from the centre but there is not much grip on the centre section.  The lack of grip there was not an issue for me but it can be for some, but I was more than happy with the performance from the front.

Trying from the rear was a bit too weird for me and they flew all over the place lol but they may work for natural rear grippers.

Quality wise the darts are very nice again, the machining is very clean and nicely cut and the tungsten feels good.

On the whole its a dart that should suit front grippers for sure and probably centre grippers also, not sure about rear grippers though Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Great review buddy. Once again enjoyed with my morning Java. Really like the looks of the barrel and even my 85 year young mom said they were pretty but just not the right grip for me. Keep 'em coming ST Darts

Really like the look of these. Even my wife didn't sigh and say "looking at more darts pictures?" (I think she thinks I'm train spotter of darts) instead she said "oh they're nice" so that means something, not sure what but definitely means something lol

I also think they look like great value for money (a big brands would charge twice as much for the same thing, look at mirage with coating in the rings) from how they look and from your review Darren they seem like they are great value.

Great pics and review once again bud!

Now let's see if the +1 works Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
