Hamo 24g Voks Design A Dart Winner Review

Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtC0AhjabZI

As some of you know our very own Hamo won the Voks design a dart comp this year, hardly surprising as he sent in a billion entries so it would have been a miracle if he never won lol Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Only kidding Hamo!

Anyway Voks run this comp each year and last year our own Greg won it, so the Nutz are doing well!

Hamo has made a design in a straight barrel dart of 24g and Voks sent him 5 sets and he very kindly sent me a set to review.

Also if you wish to buy a set we have them on sale in the Nutz shop and there is a discount for Nutz members, you can find it here: Voks Hamo 24g

CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:

The darts come in the neat Voks cardboard boxes with a little Voks wallet and are fitted with some Voks Tornado points and supplied with some Voks standard flights and some nice spinning stems, not sure what type they are.

Like I said above its a straight barrel design and has a nice graduated shark/razor grip at the front of the barrel with a continually decreasing width of angles. It does not feel too aggressive but is still a good high medium to almost high level.

With the supplied setup it moves to the centre:

CONCLUSION:

I think its a nice dart for front grippers, the grip is spot on for me, its not overly aggressive and has a nice feel while providing good control.  The darts behaved well through the air too, no fishtailing or spiralling.

Of course I still tried it from the centre and the rear and it flew well from the centre if a little flatter for me and it was not too bad from the rear either but there is not much grip in those two positions although the darts were not slippy, there is some grooves at the rear and depending on how you grip at the centre you may find some of your grip is on the last of the minis razor grip there, so if so you will get some level of grip.

But its a dart I found very easy to throw, it just felt the right kind of grip and balance and weight and was quite pleasant to throw with.

I think Hamo has come up with a nice twist on the classic straight barrel with that grip section and I think front grippers will probably get most out of it.

The Tornado points feel really good too, my only gripe and its one I have with all grip points is that for some reason when your dart lands near a wire they seem to grip really hard, I think it must be locking on to the wire below the sisal to cause that and its why I prefer the smooth points.  Of course if its not your own board then why worry lol Guests cannot see images in the messages.

But I am looking forward to trying the smooth Tornado points as I am sure they will be a winner, but if you must have that bit of grip then the grip version are great! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Nice review, looks like a quality set of darts. Too bad these don't suit me (most of my fingers/grip is on the smooth part).

Yes I thought it was a good design when they were first imagined. I just don't see them for me which is too bad they look nice. Great review Darren and glad they sent you some to do the review.
You mentioned the points and makes me wonder just why points are designed that way knowing they'll mess up your board. They look cool though

Thanks guys, lots of players like those points for extra grip but like anything its a personal thing, I just prefer the smooth ones, very good points though and has a nice fit to the barrel Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
