Shot 916 20g soft tip darts review

Got these from Dartswarehouse.com its a new model just recently come out, they cost £35 with free Worldwide delivery: CLICK HERE

They are a total weight (with points, stems and flights) of 20g and 90% tungsten, fitted with L-Style Lip points. They come in a slim line box with Shot stems and flights that are pre slotted and supplied with rings:

The flights and stems look great with the translucent colour and suit the barrels well:

The barrels have a shark style grip at the front and a smooth centre then the rear is a sharply defined thin ring grip:

The shafts are a little like the L-Style shafts in that they have very tiny wings to help protect the front edge of the flights:

It is a 2ba thread on each end of the barrel, so I guess its possible to reverse the barrel round if you wanted:

I tested the weight of each dart with the full set up and they are very closely match weighted:

Then I weighed all 3 barrels with nothing attached, all weights were as described on the box so perfect really:

My grip with these darts:

Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I would say the front of these darts is a high level grip and the rear is borderline between medium and high. The darts are obviously a lot lighter than my usually 23 or 24 gram with them been soft tips but I felt fine with them. I don't normally get along with such an aggressive grip but it seemed well suited to me on these darts and I think the grip helped with the forward thrust of the dart and made it feel easier to throw. There is some darts that when you throw them there is something enjoyable about playing with them, I felt like that with these darts, they were nice to throw and seemed to suit my forward grip. The Lip points on the darts perform well but I did accidently stand on one and broke it when I dropped the dart on the floor. Luckily I had a replacement but I had a few bounceouts from the throws I had and the points never broke even hitting a hard floor.

I enjoyed throwing these and was pleasantly surprised with their performance, they look great and are very well machined.

A great soft tip dart that will suit front or rear grippers who like some bite in their dart. A very nice 9 out of 10!

I really like these and your review was stellar! I think these are the Darts I'm going with. Style, Grip, Shape, and weight all suit me and the Price is far better than anything else I have been looking to buy.

Thanks Shawn lol!

I should imagine if you reverse the barrel round the balance would change, I will do it and post a pic later.

I have had a few sets of darts lately, but I cant resist picking these up and throwing them. Not sure what it is but I just like throwing them. Yesterday I put some L-Style Hard Lip points on and it felt even better because I rest my finger on the point and the Hard Lip points are kind of non slippy as they are made from carbon so my grip felt even more secure with the dart. Was only playing for about 35 mins as I dare not over play because of me wrist but was starting to get more accurate with these.

I am going to do a little experimenting with some different shafts and flights next Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Grip, those stock shafts/stems look like L-Style Laro, hence the tiny fins.

Yeah I think your right, I checked with some I have and they look the same, I was not sure as I read on the site I think that the supplied stems were Shot stems which mixed me up, but it turns out some of the info was printed wrong. Never mind Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
