Winmau Willie O'Connor Darts Review

I bought these from Bully Darts run by Dan Wheatley, you can check out his shop here: https://www.bullydarts.co.uk/ Contact him if you need something he has not got in stock too, a nice guy.

More info on Winmau site here: https://winmau.com/

Thanks for the review Darren and well said about the Winmau launch, its been a complete shambles.

As for these, look a nice dart but for fans of Willie not sure why you'd bother when the packaging is poor. Makes it look like a generic set rather than a players set. Lots of Irish fans were looking for these darts to come out but I'd imagine many will be disappointed when they arrive like that. Price is good though I suppose.

Throwing long/narrow barrels at the moment, but these will be part of my collection soon enough. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I bought them, much like the comments above it's a little disappointing to see that they aren't contained within his own packaging. A nice dart (balance is ok) and the grip is decent enough a nice solid deep groove pattern, but i found them a little chunky (with the tungsten 85%)

Will watch a bit later, but already added to the reviewed dart index.

Edit:  Watched - and a nice touch to include the inset of how Willie grips the dart.  Very useful I found.  Not sure if Winmau is having supply chain issues, which might explain the generic packaging.  And price point to a certain extent Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Not watched the review yet but have been waiting for these to come out for a while now - got to say if they don't come in proper player packaging I think I'll hold off getting a set until such time as Winmau sort that out.

Nice review Darren.

Good looking dart.

Strange for Winmau not to have dedicated player packaging though.

Thanks mate! Yeah was a bad situation all round regarding stock levels, frustrating for retailers too no doubt.

Thanks for showing the thumb of O'Conner gripping the dart. I think this would be great in other reviews as well, if possible. Often wonder how the pro's grip certain barrels. Choice of gallery music is perfect.

I have had players grips in lots of past reviews, not always easy to find a good image though Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
