Harrows Darts.

Winmau Graffiti 22g darts review
Rainbow 

These are part of Winmaus 2014 range of darts. It seems like its a bit of a fashion now with rainbow colour darts I think there is only Harrows and Target who have not brought a version out. I think I have said before but its a kind of love or hate it thing with the coloured barrels, I don't mind the look myself and think its kind of unique as each barrel is coloured a little different.

The Graffiti darts are paired with flights that have a design by a well known Graffiti artist called Carl Kenz, you can see some of his work here:



I have no idea if he plays darts though Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

His artwork is also on the packaging. The range is available in 20, 22, 24 and 26 grams but each version is a different shape and there is also a soft tip Graffiti range too. They are 85% tungsten. The darts retail for £29.90 and are supplied in the usual Winmau packaging with medium nylon stems with stem springs and the standard Carl Kenz design flights with point protector and plastic case.

As is usual with this rainbow coloured coating the colours vary in range from blue, yellow and gold colours, green and purple. The colours seem to change depending on the angle you look at the barrels so I have took a few pics below from various angles:

The barrels are tapered and have a kind of Purist style grip but wider spaced and a little less sharply edged so I would say its about a high medium level of grip:

Length:

I thought the barrels looked longer than they were actually.

Detailed dimensions of the barrel:

Weight:

2 of the barrels were very closely matched with the third been 13 100th's of gram heavier than the lightest barrel and 2.5 tenths of gram above the 22g weight. Still very good overall:

Balance:

The balance with nothing attached was front weighted:

With the supplied setup the balance was a little front of centre:

My grip with these darts:

Darts landed quite horizontal in the board for me which is unusual as they normally land tail up no matter what:

Conclusion:

Another set of rainbow coloured darts that you will either love or loath the look of, but that's just personal opinion and like I said above I quite like the look. The barrel design itself looks good and suited my front style grip, there was enough grip on the barrels without been over grippy but if your expecting a Purist level of grip then its not the same as that.

I think most will find the barrels are nice to hold and the darts are probably best suited to front grippers and possibly middle grippers too.

My big bug bear is the silver points and its the same with any new set of darts I get that have them fitted, my finger slips off the end and puts me off, but as these were for our comp I did not scuff them.

They flew nicely balanced through the air for my throw and landed more horizontal in the board than I was expecting.

Overall they are very nice darts. If I were to change one thing though (apart from the points) it would may be to make the grip a little closer spaced or sharpen the rings edges a touch Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Summary Rating:

Looks = 8/10 (Pretty Rainbows Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. )
Grip = 7 (on a 1 to 10 scale or level)
Weight match = 7.5 (close)
Quality = 8/10
Value = 7.5/10 (May be £25 would be better for 85% tungsten? )
Suitability for me = 8/10 (felt nicely balanced)

Best Feature: Rainbows!

Splendid review as always, sir. I actually like the shape and dimensions a lot. Did you try throwing them with your stems & flights?

I wish these were a wee but slimmer, but they are roughly the same as the DPCs as I am throwing. I may need to order a set!
