My experience:

 I never ever tried a dart with more aggresive grip. Very special design (something usuall for shot darts). It take some time to get used to them due to their unique grip. You cannot easily find a dart to compare with it.
 I found difficult to throw them like my other darts cause i was trying to grip in the the front end where the grip is over aggresive for me. Since yesterday i never threw them again. But after some one day of slippery with every darts i was getting in my hands i decided to give them a go again. I gripped the dart almost in the center this time and... here you go. The darts flighing perfect. If this dart slipp if your hand you will need a new hand Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.. I wish they were 25gr.
The funny part was the reactions in the darts cafe i'm playing when i got this darts first time... eyes wide open from every one. One of my teammates while he is trying to describe them gave them several names ( iron maiden darts, heavy metal darts etc). 
Maybe they wont suite every player cause of ther very very aggresive grip but is a dart set to have even if you have it only for your collection (like me).

Contents:

The darts come in a slim box, inside you will find two sets of Shot! shafts, one red intermediate and one white short, and a set of Shot! flights.

Design:

Very precise design again, you will be very happy to see a so complex dart with no imperfection. Shinny and impresive.
Is one of the sets that can be pictured even with the best photo.

Balance:

Its a very balanced dart. Maybe in the first throws you will think that something is wrong but its cause you grip it to hard and it stick to your hand on the release. If you grip it gently you will find out that is perfect.

As you could see the balance point ( red dots) of the barrel only is in the center part of the dart and it move slightly rear while you add the shaft.

The Grip:

All about this darts is their grip. In the center they have a razor part and going to either side is a knurled part, a very aggresive ring part and knurled again. The part of the rings is the more aggresive cause the ring are thin and knurled too. The most confortable area is from the part from the second to the third knurled setion (including the razor of course).

Nice review Copigme!  Nice pictures. Were you using a macro lense? Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Them razor knurls are sharp, and probably something I like! 

If you want the weight a little heavier, you could try several things. Depending on how deep the darts are drilled, add a tungsten insert (2.2g) and if there's not enough space, you could grind down the insert, use almost pure lead (you could melt it in or just use small billets), or tungsten putty.

How deep are the darts drilled?

They are in New Zealand and that's where I bought them, usually only takes about 4 or 5 days but sometimes can be a bit longer.

Thank you Ancient Darter.
I don't know excactly what lens is this. Is my girlfriends who is her first steps of becoming a profesional photgrapher.
Its a nikon 35mm if i remember right. So the more equipment see gets for her job the better my dart photos will be. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Now about the inserts. The darts aren't very deep drilled. I was thinking of adding weight some months ago but i'm affrain of losing the ballance of the dart.

The best candidate for this is a set of soft tip accurate darts i have. They are very nice darts. Nothing fancy to the design but they flighting very nice. They are drilled deep (till the ceter of the barrel) so i was thinking of trying it.

If you have the time i'd like to see a thread of you with a small "how to add weight"

Now about the inserts. The darts aren't very deep drilled. I was thinking of adding weight some months ago but i'm affrain of losing the ballance of the dart.

The balance will still feel the same. I've done quite a bit with weights - all over, and my darts are about 15.2 - 17g, so slight difference can be felt. At 23g, believe me, you won't feel any change of balance if you pump in 1 or 2g at the end.You can measure it, but for all practical reasons when throwing, you won't be able to tell.  Guests cannot see images in the messages.

There's already one on that actually - with tungsten putty. https://www.dartsnutz.net/forum/showthread.php?tid=8937&highlight=tungsten+putty+tutorial    To be honest, I'm a bit cautious of posting up some things at times.
