Differences in Japanese Darts series ...
... specifically, the normal signature series of Cosmo, and the Code Metal range? The Juggler range, I can figure out because of the slightly more complex cuts and designs.

Product catalog says pretty much nothing other than the best materials, dulled finish of the flagship series, but at least there's one specific claim: tolerances to 1/1000th of an inch but it doesn't say it it's only for Code Metal, or the entire brand. I'll paste what the catalog says below.

Perhaps I might have missed out on some in-depth technical pages in Japanese or something, or searching for it requires a different paradigm ...

I honestly think it's just the prestige of owning a numbered set of Code Metals. I thought about trying a set of Code Metal United Label Spica but in the end I couldn't justify the purchase. 1/1000 mm accuracy is very impressive but whose fingers could ever tell the difference.

Even when brands like Yoshimura guarantee 0.01 g weight matched barrels, who could tell even if they were 0.1 g different without a scale? From the reviews done by Getagrip, Bull's Fighter has produced lots of sets that are weight matched to 0.01 g but they are less than half the price of Yoshimuras. I'm not hacking on Yoshimura, I own a set and may buy another set in the future. I admit I am a bit of a label whore, I know they won't make me throw better but if it's not taking food out of my dog's mouths, who cares.

If these high priced barrels lasted longer and kept their mirror finish, I might buy a set but you have seen for yourself that this isn't the case.

I think these barrels are to catch the occasional whale. A retailer friend said that every so often a baller comes in and just asks for the most expensive set, there is your market for Code Metal.

I doubt its possible to really tell much difference, some darts can feel as if they are a better quality tungsten sometimes but whether its just the mind perceiving it as such or if there is an actually difference is difficult to determine. Without ever having a set I cant really say either way but also if the metal is made a little better then maybe it wears better too so that would need a long term test.

I think you should buy them Chris and do the testing Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
