Elkadart Titanium Gold 23g Darts Review

I got these darts recently from Elkadart, they are from the Titanium range and as you can see these are the Gold 23g model, other weights available are 20,22,24 and 26 gram in differing styles, check here for more info: ELKADART TITANIUM

They are 90% tungsten and have a gold nitride coating which I always like the feel of. They are superb value at a RRP of £21.99!

The darts come in a nice clamshell plastic packaging and includes the barrels, 1 set of Elkadart 100 micron standard shape flights, one set of Skimmed Alloy Shafts a point protector and hard plastic case with the Elkadart logo, also the shafts are fitted with rubber "o" rings which is a nice touch as not everyone supplies those when using alloy shafts:

Elkadart are a long established darts company and have been manufacturing darts and related products in their own factory in Slough near London since the 1970's. Its good to see a U.K. based manufacturer actually making their products in the U.K. instead of overseas as so many do these days. The fact they can do so at such a reasonable price is even better and makes me wonder why some charge so much more when they are making their items overseas?

The darts are very nicely made and I think they look great with the gold nitride coating

As you can see from the above pics the darts have a ring style grip on the nose of the barrels which is a good idea for those who like to hold or rest their finger near the nose, then the front of the barrel is a shallow cut razor style grip and then the rear is a ringed style grip.

The darts are thicker at the front of the barrel and taper towards the back.

The grip is closer to a medium level of grip but has a tiny bit of a ledge where the razor style grip starts and I found that to be a good datum point and something to push against. The darts sat nicely in my grip and felt comfy to hold.



The barrels were very close match on two of them and the third was about 3 tenths of gram difference, nothing I would notice by the feel anyway.

The weight of the full setup out of the box:

The barrels are around the length that are usually prefer and the thickness at the front where I hold it was just right for me:

Here is the close up of all the dimensions of the grip:

Without anything attached the barrels balance point was towards the front, so they are slightly front weighted:

With the full set up out the box it moves very close to the centre:

Here is my natural grip with these darts:

These are great little darts to throw, if you like the shorter dart with a slight front weighted bias you should like these, they are comfy to hold and have enough bite in the grip to aid with the forward thrust but best of all they are such a fantastic price!



I cant help but give them a 9/10

Great review as always grip. I really like these a lot. Those shafts have to go though they are ugly. An all black shaft or maybe red would make them sexy. I think these are going into the shopping cart.

I dont mind the shafts actually, I'm not a big fan of alloy shafts but only for the reason that the tangs can break easy, if it was not for that then I think they would be great, but thats the only reason I normally use nylon.

No damn metal shafts - I thought I made that clear to everyone. Pure rubbish IMO. Bending-getting loose, tangs breaking, blah,blah,blah.

Yeah but they come with the darts, no extra costs. I use plastic ones and while practicing the other night I threw my dart and the flight came off in mid flight. Dart hit side long into the board. At least metal ones hold the flight.

[video=youtube][video=youtube]https://https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=i1HmMsVQ854[/video][/video]1. Number one reason is they bend easily.
2. They become loose too easy
3. To keep tight buy little o rings (hassle)
4. Expensive ones you can bend back but usually not straight.
5. Break off in barrel you got problems.


Nylon,
1. cheap
2. wears very good
3. don't need O rings
4. stays straight better
5. If break in barrel easier to remove.

LOL I enjoy doing them, it does take quite a while to do but its fun, and I would say my only failure is I like them all really so its hard to say anything bad about them so I tend to score them on how they look and feel and value, how they throw is something unique to everyone but if they throw nice for me its likely I will score them higher.

I just repointed Poops Elkadarts and I must say they are verry nice darts. I put Black 30mm storms on for him and couldn't resist throwing them a few times. They are one of those darts that is easy to throw and fly absolutely straight.

He will have to do the pics as I have them and his Dellars packaged up and ready to ship in the am. Not a fan of the Dellar shaped dart but they seem nice but IMO not nearly a good a dart as the Elks.

Stop using up all the t20's on my darts Saber! LOL. Cannot wait to get them and give them a throw.
