Unicorn Vintage Long Tom
I just got these on Ebay for $5.00! I think it's a steal. Cool shape 16 gram chrome brass with gold paint in the grooves. Haven't thrown them yet as I want to get some nylon 1/4" shafts.

44.3 mm long
11 mm wide at the widest

These things are chunky!

Very nice darts and great bargain

As Darren says though they aren't Long Toms - they are on the following page from the Unicorn books

Sorry guys I think you are right. I will have to look through the unicorn books later to see exactly what they are. That is just what it said on the side of the box, I didn't even question it.

I agree with Darren - gold plated Champions Choice darts - look on the left hand page here

Are they 'Darrow' flights?...a bit nostalgic looking at these early '70's darts, they're an absolute bargain at that price. Don't be tempted to throw them unless that is, you don't group them, as those flights will be damaged in a matter of minutes otherwise.

I am waiting to throw them until I get some nylon 1/4" stems and regular flights.

They are darrow flights - they are actually more hard wearing than you think - rough them up and you can generally just smooth them back into shape.

I have some experience with feathered flights and I am sure they will hold up just fine. It's just that I would like to keep them in good condition if I ever plan to sell them one day. They look like they have never been thrown.

Either that or a they belonged to a very 'average' player. I say keep 'em pristine, 'thanks.... for the memory'.
