Winmau Mervyn King Gold 22g darts review

These are from Red Dragon darts and cost £25.90, they are a 90% tungsten dart with a gold titanium nitride coating.

They come in the now standard style Winmau plastic slide packaging, just slide the top cover off. They are supplied with a plastic darts case, a point protector, King standard flights and red Winmau alloy stems:

The darts are a unique shape that reminds me of a bamboo cane, they have 3 scalloped sections with a groove on each knuckle. There is a few narrow grooves at the rear of the barrel and then it is smooth as it tapers towards the stem. The gold ti colour contrasts well with the red alloy stems:

Although I hold it near the front I found the darts to be very comfy to hold and I really like the gold ti feel, it has a kind of dry matte type of feel. The darts flew much better than I was expecting, I thought they may fly off at funny angles and spin sideways or something worse lol but they flew with a nice balance and although I usually don't like scallop darts these felt fine to me.

Overall a very nice dart which impressed me by been much better than I expected.

9/10

Nice review, those look like a nice set of darts. I may consider these in the far future. Right now I need to keep it cheap (not that these are expensive per-say).

These are very nice darts to be honest, I was surprised that I liked them, I always thought the shape was just too weird.

I had these darts and liked them a lot but mine were very heavy and I ended up trading them for lighter darts. at 22g I think I would love these.

Good review Dazza, I got a set last year (was on sale in argos for just £7!!)
Really wanted a set just for my collection as they are a really nice unusual set.
Reply
£7!!!!! wow that is a real bargain!

There is quite a few models from different makers that have a similar design but not sure if the design was originally made by Mervyn as I remember some story that he originally made his darts himself, I guess it has evolved over time though.
