30mm points showing from Barrel - Long?
Hi folks

Last question on this i promise, managed to get my darts repointed last night, 38mm diamond laser points inserted 8mm into the barrels

Is this point considered long and is inserting it into the barrel by 8mm a bad thing?

Thanks

Yes, You can qualify as long, 26-28.5 is regular
Not a bad thing
may all the doubles be with you

Unusual to insert them that far 4 to 6mm is "standard" depth of point drilling in barrel

4.5mm by Storm points is minimum Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Does it mess up the balance point if the points are inserted say 7-8mm?

IMO it wouldn't "mess" up the balance point.  38 mil points for seem to be the line before any small differences in a darts performance if any with longer points.

The balance point is also good depending on where you throw from and how.
I have a front grip, which means I may prefer the balance be in a different spot than a rear gripper.

Nope, never had any issues with balance when points are in 7-8mm.  Of course they may feel a bit different from when the original points were in but you get used to that soon enough.
