One80 Darts Sword Edge Broadsword 24g darts review

These are from One80 darts new Swordedge range of darts, these are the Broadsword 24g version and they retail at £49.99.

You can see the full range on One80's site:

The darts come in slim plastic packaging with the new Swordedge graphics on the front, (I did the posing for the pic) and are housed in a One80 Solibox. The barrels are fitted with the new On380 Proplast shafts and the new Gladiator flights in standard shape:

As you can see from the pics the grip is like a fine triangular shaped edge and its a high level of grip. The nose of the barrels is quite a long slant but the grip is also on the nose which is good. The transition from the point to the barrel is very smooth and fine which seems to be a feature with all One80 darts:

The barrels were very closely matched in weight:

The weight of the full setup:

The barrels were longer than I thought they looked:

It is quite thick near front:

The full dimensions of the barrel:

The balance point with no shaft or flights was just front of centre, I think the long slanted nose is shifting it further, but still more of a front weighted barrel:

With the full supplied setup, which I think are Inbetween shafts, the balance is dead centre:

Here is the darts set up with my medium, short and extra short shafts and standard flights:

My natural grip with these darts:

Most of my darts when thrown were landing at this angle in the board:

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

The first thing I noticed when throwing these darts was that they seemed to dip a little with my throw, I know my throw is a bit loopy any way but the dip was noticeable. I got the hang of them after a while though and I think its more to do with them been 52mm long as I usually get on ok with front weighted darts. One thing I like a lot is the Sword Edge grip, its very nice. It is finer and I felt more grippy on the nose of the barrel, but its great all over and you can feel it in your fingers as you push/release the dart. I think if you have grip problems then you may find a solution with this range.

As usual with One80 the quality is first rate and the darts themselves look great too, I don't think they quite suited my throw though, I think its probably the length. This was also my first try of the new proplast shafts. Overall they seem to be very well made and feel very durable, my only issue was that the flights seemed to come out easy. I think the slots on the shafts could be made a little tighter really.


These are a very nice quality dart with a great grip, I think they will suite front and middle grippers the best especially if you want something with an assured grip. But may not suit people who don't get on with barrels above 50mm.

Right I am going to try something a little different with the ratings now, just to help people with more info and so they can make their own minds up will have categories as follows:

Summary Rating:

Looks = 9/10
Grip = 8 (on a 1 to 10 scale or level)
Quality = 9/10 (great quality)
Value = 7/10
Suitability for me = 6/10

Let me know what you think of the ratings and if you prefer an overall total score

Great review. I bought these last week but didn't like them as much as my One80 Stilettos so sold them on. Lovely darts feel great in hand but just didn't seem to go right for me.

Nice looking arrow, and the grip is interesting.
love your new rating system as well.
I do wonder how well these thin noses will stand up to point changes though.

And while Im complaining, with your balance point finder (the white stuff). Could you possibly put a line on it to clarify the BP, as I am unsure if you are using the whole thing or just the leading edge, Or maybe a thinner one. And could you do it sooner rather than later lol.

You do a great job on these reviews +1.

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

Do you have a similar grip to me? The Sword Edge grip does feel great though.

Thanks G, I think on the box it says that they expect the grip to be hard wearing, the grip kind of feels like a more pronounced micro grip, even though its quite closely spaced it still feels very grippy.

LOL the white thing is a pencil eraser, I am thinking of getting something thinner actually, problem may be trying to get it balanced exact as it will take some steady hand work, which I dont have lol.

Look pretty good to me. Great review as always. Is it the light or does that board have a gold spider? That would be cool to have a gold spidered board.

Usually I do not like gold for some reason I like it on those darts and on a board. When I was throwing at home the other day I was thinking it would be cool to have a gold plated board. If 180 has another prototype they need tested I am willing to do so, hell I won't even charge for my services, lol.
