Andrew Fordham Onyx- the black coated ones from Winmau -
Just a simple band of babyshark grip on the rear taper -

Doesn't hurt they are only 25 squid from Argos (UK catalogue shop.)

those white rings are also super easy to turn into your own colours with a felt tipped pen. Or you can use some acetone to get pure black barrels.

You might want to look at the Unicorn Phase 5 LP.

The definitions are so vague and confusing (bomb/bullet/missile/torpedo/frontweighted etc) so I decided to keep it broad.

I am using 22g currently.

Great price (no international shipping though)! Looks good, probably on the short side for my grip. Using a pencil grip, a bit like Taylor but my middle finger is a bit more ”stretched out” than his.

Current sets that I've been throwing well lately:
Red Dragon Reflex
Winmau Lisa Ashtons
Winmau Pulsar
Unicorn Kyle Manton (if the scallop works for you)
Target Taylor 9Five G4s
Winmau Fordham special editions (the blue ones)

I’m kind of a sucker for the short, chunky barrel shape. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I tend to rotate through Unicorn rear grip bullets from 25-27g. Namely...

Phil Taylor Phase 5 LP, 26g
Phil Taylor Phase 6, 25g
Andy Hamilton, 25g and 27g
Gordon Shumway, 26g
Sigma 950, 26g
Sigma 970 LP, 25g
Sigma 970, 27g
Kyle Manton, 26g

The Mantons looked amazing, I've tried snipers and I like a nice scallop. Too bad the Manton's are 26g only though. I've never thrown anything other than 22 g so I am used to that weight and it seems to suit me quite well. Will take a closer look at the Shumways, I've seen the DPC Optimum as well which seems quite similar. The Taylor darts are of course very interesting, though the price is a bit steep imho. Fordham's and the rest of Unicorn selection might get a shot as well. Cheers.

Designa Black Shadow V2 bomb shape are a great choice. That micro grip in the back helps.

They caught my eye some weeks ago but I haven't found anything about them in any section of this forum really. I am leaning towards trying the Shumway's but these are another type of bombers so they might go in to the shopping cart as well!

Maybe the new Bolide SP05 coming on the market this Friday. I preordered a set in 24g, but they are available in 22g, too.

Other than that I could recommend the Red Dragon Carnage 4
