Winmau Trina Gulliver 2014 23g darts review

I really liked the look of these when they first surfaced on the Winmau 2014 collection so had to fet some to try.  These are from Puredarts.co.uk for £24 and they are 23g and also available in 25 and 27 grams, link here: Gulliver 23g

You can also win these in our 2014 Matchplay Comp here: https://www.dartsnutz.net/showthread.php?tid=6814

The darts come in the standard Winmau packaging and are 85% tungsten.  They are supplied with medium nylon shafts with spring clips and the Trinna Gulliver Golden Girl signature standard shape flights.  A case and point protector is provided and there is a checkout chart on the inside inlay card.

The darts have a very nice ring grip which has a gold ti coating on the edges, I figure they must have coated the whole dart before cutting the grip as I cant see how else they could get the coating on so neatly? The grip is really nice and I would say its at the low end of a high level grip but only because the slightly wider rings neutralise its affect a little.

Dimensions:

Length:

Not too long for me so that's good, I think a touch shorter would suit me better yet though Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Weight:

There was 6 hundredths of a gram difference between the lightest and heaviest so quite a close match:

Balance:

With nothing attached the barrel was a little front weighted:

But seemed to move a touch right of centre with the supplied set up?

Conclusion:

I had an enjoyable time with these darts, they were a little iffy to start with but the more I played with them and got used to them they were really nice to throw.  I did move my thumb a touch up the barrel and the balance was better and I also noticed that when I imparted a little spin, which is quite easy for me to do, they flew even better, I would not advise doing that if its not your natural thing though, it may mess you up lol!

The grip is nice but not too edgy although it may have been if the wider rings were not there and it was all the very thin rings.  I like the look of the gold rings too its very nice.

I think these are most likely to suit middle and front grippers the best but nothing is set but as you can see there is not grip at the very rear of the barrel but it has a slight step down from the last ring so if you grip at the rear then you have a kind of lip to push against, I'm not sure it will be enough for most though.

Flight through the air was quite nice once I adjusted to the darts a little and its one of those sets that I enjoy throwing Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Yeah they are very nice I wonder though if most males have an aversion to buying a female dart players darts just because they are female? does not bother me though lol

Some probably do - I've got a set of Ana's darts, both Trina's and both Steffi Luck's - doesn't matter to me whose name is on them - if they fly good for me then that's all that matters

I would have pulled the trigger on these by now if the grip went all the way back. Great looking dart and matched by a great review. +1 Darren!
