One80 Jetstream Spitfire 25g darts review

I actually got these end of August I think from One80 but I held off reviewing them as I was expecting them to be in the UK shops in October but there is no sign of them as yet and I am not sure if or when they will be in UK.  So at present they have been available in Germany for a while and they retail for 69 Euros which is £59 at present. This is the Spitfire 25g model from the One80 Jetstream range which is themed on planes.  There is a soft tip range too.  There is also a 21 and 23g version of these and it says VHD tungsten on the box but not sure if that means 90& or 95% tungsten.

CONTENTS AND PACKAGING:


The darts come in a very nicely designed box with some nice artwork of the iconic Spitfire on a raiseable flap which is magnetic and there is a window visible to the right and open rasing the flap more windows showing the contents inside.  If you open the bottom of the box there is a little pull tab so you can pull the inside tray out.  The contents are all neatly housed in a dense foam tray with a velvety feeling cover and the darts are supplied with a set of polycarbonate stems and a set of alloy stems and a set of standard flights and a set of kite shape flights:

The barrels have a very nice grip style with a normal razor style grip near the front then a kind of razor flat ring style and the a scollop section at the rear with some very finely machined rings and grooves.  There is also longitudonal grooves cut into the barrel which have a nice blue ti accent. The transition from the point to barrel is very smooth and seems to be a One80 signature style of machining so no need for storm points or trident cones here Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. I would say over all the grip level is a high medium.

DIMENSIONS:


Length:

WEIGHT:


Two barrels are almost perfectly match and the difference between lightest and heaviest is just five hundredths of a gram so very good:

BALANCE:


With nothing attached the barrel was front weighted:

With supplied setup  it moved closer to barrels centre still slightly weighted:

MY GRIP WITH THESE DARTS:


I gripped on the razor style section:

CONCLUSION:


I found these to be quite a curious darts actually.  Looking at the way the scallop section is at the rear you would think they are made for rear grippers who like a front weighted dart so why all the nice grippy section at the front?  Seems a little odd in that regard but as a front gripper I am not complaining as I thought overall they flew very well with my front grip and after the video I hit a few 140's so was more than happy with that.  At times though I did got a lot of spin and on some throws it was almost too much and seemed to cause the darts to drift and dip a bit.  Its not a fault with the darts of course, its just how it interacted with my grip and throw and after a couple more days it was less of an issue but not gone completely.  Flight was generally good through the air just a little bit of fishtailing but hardly enough to warrant a mention really.  Overall it was a very good dart with my front grip and below I was tempted to score a 9 for its suitability for me but because of the occasionally oversping I will stick with 8.

As usual I tried from the middle and rear and the middle was not totally terrible with my not natural middle grip but I got less to zero spin and it flew a little smoother but I thought the balance felt better at the front.  Could still work very for natural middle grippers but its a difficult one for me to judge so sorry I can help you middies (yeah I coined a new term Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.) any more than that but if you get some let me know how you get on Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

From the rear was also a little strange in that I got pretty much zero spin and I usually get lots when trying a rear grip?  But certainly the darts feel comfy enough in the scallop and I think they may have flown better for me with the rear than the middle and it had a nice arc so I think for rear grippers that like a front weighted dart it should be good for you but then it brings me back to the point about most of the grip been at the front, I guess if you rest your fingers on it then its fine but is it not the thumb and index finger providing must control and thrust?

The darts themeselves have a great look that I think suits the Spitfire name and the quality is very nice indeed.  I certainly like them for my front grip style although I think some may find the 7mm a little chunky but I think its just right and suits the barrels characteristics.

So a good buy for fronties and probably the same for backies (lol there just coined another one Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.) but not sure on middies Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

If you have watched the video then I apologise for getting a little upset but I thought it would be strange to cut that bit out as it may not flow right but my uncle Brian was like my second father and taught me a lot of things, so for him to die exactly 1 year after my dad was a tough one and why I want to dedicate the review to him.  I had planned to have this posted on Remembrance day but had a lot of internet issues so its put me behind on time.

Summary Ratings:


Looks: 8 (very angry style suits its moniker well)
Grip: 7.5 (1 to 10 Scale, 10 been severe grip)
Weight match: 8 (very close)
Quality: 9 (veryl good)
Value: 6.5 (if cheaper in UK then a 7)
Suitability for me: 8 (fly really well just like a Spitty!)

I have to give you credit for this one Darren. Not only is it a very interesting review but you didn't edit out the emotions shown concerning your uncle.
My condolences to you are in order
I liked the video of the planes and it left me wondering just what else this review would be hiding later on in the review
These look like a nice dart. A bit long and too heavy for me but now I can save some cash to put some food on the table for the grand kids

Looks like you got a hair cut?

Thanks for the review. The step in the barrel looks like it would work for me. If there's a lighter model <50mm long I might invest in a set. +1 for the review changes too Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images..

Great review as always !
I love the new way the center of gravity is shown on the pics. Would be nice to see that same information on the assembled dart with the different size stems too.

Cheers,

Thanks mate, yeah scallops are not usually something I like, they often feel comfy but it depends how its positioned and how deep it is etc Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

First off, very sorry for your loss Darren.

Once again a fantastic review. :thumbup:  Bit of a "chunky monkey" dart for One80, but it does look good.

Maybe them Spitfire darts will as distinctive as the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine powering them Spitfire fighters in your video. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
