Target 26mm Titanium Pro Grooved Conversion Points
Hi guys,

I currently use the Winmau Sabotage soft tip barrel with a Target Titanium pro smooth conversion point and I have gotten along fantastic with this setup.  
However like most people on the forum I wanted to try something different, I love the sabotage grip and I think it is the barrel I will use forever haha... so I thought I would try the grooved Target points. With regards to my darts they work great and stick in the board better than any smooth point I have used. 
Here is my issue, they seem to stick in too well and require a lot of force to pull them out and when I do they occasionally pull some sisal fiber with it. Is this normal for grooved points?? I don't want to wear down my board ( Blade 4) more than normal. 
Any one with grooved point experience??

Thanks!!!

yeah that's usually the case and why I don't like such points, board wreckers!

Turn the grooves in a 150 - 200 grit sandpaper and it should calm the problem down. Make sure you apply pressure with your fingers when you turn. If you look very closely, you should see a very slight gentle chamfer on the top edge of the grooves. If you want to be more precise, use a needle nose round file wrapped with a 200 grit, and turn each groove individually.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I will probably switch back to the smooth points, might use the grooved ones if I go out to the pub and play on their old boards.
But I will try sanding them down a bit too.

I find with those points, unless you really want to feel the grooves with your fingers, the smooth ones stick very well in the board.
I think it may be the writing on them, but I have never had an issue with one.
