As you can see from the pics the barrels have a very thin ring grip. The darts are quite grippy but if you look at the close up pics directly above you can see the edges of the rings are kind of smoothed off so its not as aggressive a grip as it first looks, still a high level grip though.

Weight:

There is only 4 100ths of a gram difference and 2 of the barrels were the same so very well matched indeed:

Weight of the full set up as supplied:

Balance:

The balance with nothing attached to the barrel is very near the centre so its an even weighted and nicely balanced barrel.

With the supplied set up the balance is right in the middle:

My grip with these. I gripped in my normal front grip:

Conclusion:

I think these are the sort of dart that can suit just about all grip positions really. They are not too long a barrel at 50mm and they flew quite well with my front grip but I think they tended to hold their course through the air more which was not so great with my drop in loopy kind of throw but works nice when throwing the dart flatter.

I did try holding the dart closer to the middle and they felt very nicely balanced there but as its not my natural grip I could not throw too well from there, but they should suit any grip whether you like front, middle or rear grip.

The grip on the barrel itself is grippy but not in an aggressive way, its got a nice feel to it and I think when the darts were warmed up a little the Black ti coating was giving the dart a nicer feel in the fingers, kind of like a matt dry feeling.

The darts look kind of sleek and stealthy looking with the Black Ti coating and it does seem to have less glare on the dart from board lighting which is good. Hopefully the coating will provide some toughness to the barrel too as this style of grip can chip from contacts.

Overall they are a very good versatile dart very nicely turned as usual and with a sleek sexy look! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Summary Ratings:

Looks: 8 (nice looking)
Grip: 8 (on a 1 to 10 Scale, 10 been severe grip) (coating improves it too when warmed up)
Weight match: 8.5 (very close)
Quality: 8.5 (nice quality)
Value: 6.5 (bit pricey)
Suitability for me: 7.5 (quite nice to throw)

Best Feature: grip

Nice bud. I think that isosceles trapezoidal grip will help with wear.

Nice looking dart, too bad they are not front weighted. Would like to see these front weighted. Great review as always GetaGrip.

They look nice but seem pretty thick to me at 6.9mm for a 22g 50mm dart.

Great Review as always Darren (+1)

I do like the look of them and the grip looks like it will do the job long term - I agree with Rich, they look pretty chunky for the length and weight but that finish makes them look sleek Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Unfortunately I was put off straight away by the price, out of my range these days but thats taking nothing away from the darts, great darts, great review mate.

He really means "isosceles trapezium", bloody colonials, speak English!
Started me wondering, again, has any manufacturer made a dart with a spiral grip? Instead of a series of rings just one continual one.
I shall have to ask Antony at MadHouse if this is feasible. I feel a design coming on at last.
Sort of like this, a varying screw thread Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
UPDATE: Antony says "no!"
Sorry, but it would impossible for me to create a dart with spiral grip.

" Two peoples separated by a common language."
"It is a misfortune for Anglo-American friendship that the two countries are supposed to have a common language. A Frenchman in America is not expected to talk like an American, but an Englishman speaking his mother tongue is thought to be affected and giving himself airs. Or else he is taken for a German or a Dutchman, and is complemented on his grammatical mastery of the language of another nation."
All in jest of course.
