Darts Buddy

Dazzled by the darts!
Quick question.
When I see PVD coated darts one of the advertising blurbs from many different companies says "glare free", but I can't figure out why this should be touted as some sort of advantage.

Here are two excerpts that I've stumbled across:

"The barrel is coated in a Black Titanium Nitride coating, for reduced glare and..."

"...and produce a durable glare-free look..."

Any ideas?

Because if gloss is preferred, it means another coating like say waxing, and I'm sure they don't want their 60-year old production workers to start getting kinky dart fetishes during shift!  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.


Nah, probably because of the strong lighting, and if the dart is right next to your target, and catches the glare off the lights, it might cause you to not be able to see the target area clearly, and what you cant see, you cant hit.

Good point! I think that's most likely the reason. I haven't been in different places to play darts yet, and in the house it doesn't make a difference.
Now where's that dart wax.

Most pubs either have strong spot lights, multiple spots, or nowadays LED lights. It can get quite slippery waxy ... oops, dazzling!  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

If you're on stage at a PDC tournament with TV lighting, glare might be a concern, but for most players it's not something to worry about.

I think I can quite confidently say that that's not something that will be a concern.

Maybe get your darts chrome plated and see if you get blinded, if you do there must be some truth to it Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Some Target darts have chromed inlays in the grooves, but I prefer to rely on my Goldies!  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
