Is there a "What weight darts do you throw" poll?
Hi everyone,

As above really, is there a poll for the most popular weight used in steel tip?

I am intruiged, as looking through the reviews, and swap / for sale section, the most common weight seems to be 22/23g. For me, so far, 25g seems to be the right weight, however I'm wondering whether over time, I will reduce down.

is there a natural trend that people follow? Is it common to start with a heavier dart, and move downwards? Or maybe the opposite?

im keen to hear your experiences.

Thanks,

Chris

Started at 14 grams, settled on 18 for a while. Went as high as 29 for a few months and then moved down to 23 grams for 6 months or so, before trying my old 18's again.
Hit 4 180's with them in 20 minutes and haven't looked back since.

I did order the same darts in 22 grams though - same length, just very slightly wider, because I was curious. Never gave them a proper try though.

(If anyone's interested, they're Pure Darts McCoy Saber Grips)

2017 180's: 2/150.

Not sure if there is or not to be honest, so I'll post to your thread.

I've been throwing 25 gram darts for a few years now but started out with 22 & 23 gram darts way back in the mid 80's and stuck with them for many years.    I've tried lighter darts, in the 17-20 gram range but just can't throw them with any consistency.   I find the lighter darts take a lot more effort to go where I want them to go as opposed to the heavier darts I now use.    I doubt I'd go heavier than what I'm currently using.

I've always used 22 or 23. You can get pretty much any dart in 22's or 23's so works out well for me lol

So, you're being looked at with piercing eyes and being told to put your hands up and step away from the computer.    Good on them for wanting your attention while being out with family.  You should feel the love.
