ShowTime Darts Neo Bomb 23g darts review


Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSYvpY5z4ZU


The Neo Bomb was one of Showtime Darts first models and is another very good dart!  Its a 90% tungsten bomb/bullet style with a great grip.  The version reviewed here is 23g and there is also a 26g version available.  They retail for a very wallet friendly £16.80.

CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:


The darts come in a neat little box with a plastic inner holding the barrels securely and are supplied with some short clear stems and standard Showtime poly flights:

The darts have a nice mini shark style grip which is something I like a lot, its a high level of grip but not so aggressive that it sticks.

WEIGHT:


Two barrels were an exact match and the third just two hundredths of a gram heavier so excellent:

With nothing attached the balance is front weighted:

With the supplied setup the balance is just front of centre:

MY GRIP WITH THESE DARTS:


They worked rather well with my very front grip:

CONCLUSION:


Its another very nice set from Showtime.

I found these worked quite well for me even with the short stems on.  With the short stems the darts were a bit zippy through the air but had a nice overall balance even with my very front grip, although I say very front I was kind of half on the smooth taper and half on the mini shark grip but it felt right there for me and the darts were flying nice.

I can move my grip to the centre without problem though as its a short barrel and it works just as well there but I just had that little bit more comfort and confidence closer to the front.

I did try the darts from the rear also, mostly on the smooth section as it taper towards the shaft, again the darts fly fine from there but as a rear gripper you may want more grip and your kind of losing out on the nice mini shark grip there.

So although I think the darts will work best for front and middle grippers if your happy gripping the smooth arear at the very rear then its certainly worth a try for you too.

Adding medium stems seemed to give a little more floatiness and slowness through the air which I think suited me more and I was a little more accurate with mediums on too.

Grip of the darts is just right I think, not too aggressive but giving just enough bite to make it work well.

Overall a nice quality dart and a very good price! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Cheers Pac, I think it all depend on how you grip, with a short barrel you have more chance as a front gripper of being near the balance point but you still have to account for the whole setup with stems and flights, but its all down to personal preference in the end, I don't think any one barrel can be classed as being an advantage or disadvantage because we all throw different Guests cannot see images in the messages.
