Carerra c8 add weight
I'm curious if any of you have a set of the Carerra c8's soft tip.  I have been looking at them and like them but they are a little to light and I was curious if it would be possible to add any weight to these barrels with some Tungeston Putty.

Yes, if it's drilled deep enough. I prefer lead as it's denser than putty and not messy. How much weight you want to add, and how deep is it drilled back and front? Joker Driver also has 3.5 and 4mm ball bearings but I find it a bit of space wastage. However, JDs are usually very deeply drilled.

How deep are your darts drilled? Once you know, it's easy to make decisions about options. If you don't have calipers, just use a steel point, or any narrow stick, put it in all the way and mark it with a sharpie.  Guests cannot see images in the messages.

that's what i'm curious about, how far they are drilled.  I don't have a set and would have to order them online.  but don't want to spend the $80 without knowing that I could add the weight.

You're in luck Horse!

I just found a Japanese review of them, and they are drilled, according to the review, 18mm on both ends. I suspect that should give you more than enough space to add 2g - 1g on each end with room to spare going by the TP Tutorial (https://www.dartsnutz.net/forum/showthre...y+tutorial) but i can't be entirely sure.

Worst case scenario, use tungsten inserts at 2.2g each, but you'll end up either with a front or back heavy dart, unless you manage to grind down, or cut the inserts. I've ground down the inserts and it's not too difficult.  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Where do you get then lead? Or what should I be searching for?

If you're looking for lead rather than tungsten putty, Cabella's might be an option. I got the tungsten putty at Hobby Lobby.
