Storm Points Losing Grip
I have Storms in several sets of darts.  All black, smooth, 30mm.  With the set I use the most, the points have become way less grippy.  Not only that, they seem to be unsharpenable.  Anyone else experiencing this?
26's so far this year: I've already lost count. :-)

I've found the same. I use the usual fine sandpaper to scuff them to get more grip, and a 'Slydart' silver bullet sharpener to get a decent point on them.

Interesting.  Guess I haven't tried the right sandpaper.  My usuals, the gritty sharpener on my keychain and/or the bricks on the wall at the pub, aren't getting it done.  As for the point (aka the pointy end of the point), I always liked that they were kind of dull and didn't rip up the other darts.

I like the dull finish on the point as well but after a while they became too dull. I quick and careful buzz in the sharpener brought them back closer to how they were originally, without being sharp as a needle.
