Generic darts
Looking on eBay here in the US, I see a couple of dart shops selling no name, generic looking barrels.  Some look quite nice.  Has anybody tried these or similar?  Who makes the best generic or component dart barrels?  And what is the best source?  Thanks for any/all info.

You referring to sellers at USA eBay - right. Most of them simply don't know what they are called because they are old, vintage, or something a non darter picked at a thrift shop. That's why some of them are priced so ridiculous.

I love looking at eBay UK store. There's more you can get there - as far as darts is concerned.

I shoot with $17 barrels. 95% tungsten. Nice darts don't have to be expensive. If it's 90% tungsten, in the $20-30 shipped range then go for it. That's a good deal imo

There is lots of generic type darts which are often the same in various shops but a particular shop will add their own name to them.

Check out www.puredarts.co.uk, Great prices and shipping is only around $5.00 to the US.

I saw puredarts, Tommy's, McCoy ..... are any of similar quality to Unicorn, Target, Harrows and just lack the advertising and pro endorsement?  Has anybody played VERY well with a generic set?  

Golf clubs of quite good quality are offered by small companies with no advertising budget and no endorsement deals ..... but everybody wants to play what the pros use on tv and is willing to pay 3X more to do so.

Yeah there is some very good quality darts for not too much money. McCoys are great value.

The darts themselves don't matter at all. I now shoot with $15 soft tip darts I bought in the UK (these after a years abuse https://i.imgur.com/X7tG1Dk.jpg ) They're just as good as any other dart imo. 

Just because a pro's name is on the dart doesn't mean you'll play better with it.
