Target Darts.

Red Dragon Microlites 10 gm, Featherlites 12 gm -Boyo
Three packs of these just arrived, yes I ordered three. These are my not-so-secret weapon.
You have to try them, so I thought I would buy them up first.
There are two types of these darts - Microlite and Featherlite.
The Featherlite are here: https://www.reddragondarts.com/det/9101/...1-10-gram/
they go up in size from 10 to 19 gram and there seems to be 9 grip types in the series.
Now the Microlites - you will not find them if you search on RD so here they are: https://www.reddragondarts.com/det/1691/...e-10-gram/.
These are scalloped with a microgroove in the scallop. My first set has a finger grip point, the new ones don't. might have been added after purchase as they are longer and the dart is a bit heavier.
The Featherlites at 10 gm have the same scallop shape but are smooth, the 12 gm are straight with shark tooth grip!
I have also ordered two sets of 10 and 12 gm Featherlites.
OK, this is what they look like:
They come in a slim wallet that at first I could not figure out how to get the darts out of. The come with two sets of flights that are ridiculous for this size of dart. They will be discarded along with the long aluminum shafts, ugh. My first set I outfitted with tiny Unicorn pear flights; they are 10.07, 10.08, 10.08, excellent weight match, as guaranteed, and perfectly balanced. Three in a bed is no problem with these darts, ok two in a bed and one really close.
GBP12.50 for a set, I only bought my first set off kamikersie on a whim, I am very upset to see how they compare against my much more expensive darts.
Why buy so many? I introduced my daughter and granddaughter to darts and ended up promising to buy them a board and darts and they both threw these well considering many beginners seem to need a heavier dart to start with. Plus I have victims at my club who have been drooling at the success of these darts. Of course it is me isn't it? Enough talk!

Third shows a close up of the microgrooves in the scallop, no the darts are not bent that is caused by the add on lens on my iPhone.

Part Two; now here's how to really add to the cost of your darts: these are L-Style 130 Silent Shafts, $15 a set here, and L-Style L Flights, $9 for plain $12 for patterned. Much cheaper at DC but they don't do the coloured ones and I wanted them NOW, not in 3-6 weeks.
Dart World has a good variety of flights you can't get elsewhere (I think) at $7, I was impatient so spent the food money for this week.
Photo shows three sets of shafts and flights, my original darts on the left, and the new microlites with L-Style set up on the right. Plus a collection of other flights and shafts I am playing with.
Frankly, its cheaper to go with the Target Pro Grip shafts and flights.
This is for Cankles benefit.

So, you did change the points! I have just ordered the DXM flights as, frankly, they work better than any of the others with the L-Style being a close and expensive second. I should have bought the others from you!

I didnt do them myself but i did have the points changed. (Maybe why one wasnt in as well?) is that a good thing or a bad thing? Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I just ordered some from https://w-darts.com/Flight-L-Champagne-F...p-825.html and https://w-darts.com/Fit-GEAR-Gradation-S...p-885.html
be careful when ordering stems as they don't all come with champagne rings, so order extra, you will lose one on the floor where they become instantly invisible https://w-darts.com/L-Style-Champagne-Ri...-1051.html

More light dart overload, the last ones. Red Dragon 10 and 12gm Featherlites. Hard to see the difference between the Microlites and the Featherlites, the weights are the same but the grip is slightly different. 3 Grip on the Feathers and 4 Grip on the Micros, so the site says. The Micros actually have a finer pitched grip than the Feathers. but the difference is minuscule. The 12 gm darts change barrel shape and profile to a straight barrel with "buttress grooves" and 4 Grip. I'd say they are more grippy than my Geminis.
These will go to a good home and are value for money at £12.90 a set. The shipping however at £9.01 for two tiny sets of darts is too high.

No, these are not for me, I am spreading the light dart gospel though wherever I go. Making converts from club to club. "You can only score 180 through me"
