Grip wax, which do you use.
Have only recently been using it and I like it so far. I need to get some more though so wondered if some were better than others. I am only really interested in the tablet type, and am currently using the designa branded one, but wondered if any of you good people thought some of them were more drippy than others.

I stopped using it but when I did I made my own.
Melt candle wax and soft surfboard wax at the desired ratio.
I liked about 60 surf 40 candle
You may just want to get the hard surfboard wax, I already had the soft so I went with it.

Ya also might consider the Minty of some sort of sugar lolly and just lick your fingers.

I tried wax (Target orange tablet) and didn't like it to be honest - then I tried Rosin powder, comes in a small pouch and found that it worked an absolute treat both for cold dry hands and warm sticky hands.

Best product out there in my opinion Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I dont need it but I would go with the Rosin if I did, I got some free once and it seems very grippy.

How bulky is it and how long would you expect it to last. I rub the wax I have between throws, but I would assume the rosin stays on a little longer?

The One80 wax seems OK, but it is similar to the Target wax

It comes in a pouch, a bit like a small board duster, so would go in the pocket - I used to apply it before a match while I was having me practice and it lasted throughout no problem.

It works different to wax as in it draws moisture - if your hands are dry it draws the moisture out and makes your fingers more grippy, if they are sweaty it soaks the moisture so that your fingers become more tacky - either way, 2 or 3 dustings in the build up to a match would see you through in my opinion - so slips and plenty of grip - gets a 10/10 from me.

For a while I thought you were promoting "Getagrip's Wax". I had goose bumps for a moment! Those would really be sticky! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Im using (very rarely) some chalk (chem.MgCO3) which is not sticky and only drys hands or a product called 'stick grip' from pro.mark (insn't avaible anymore) which is specially(designed powder, produces friction to improve grip minimize stick rolling movement) for drummer. Have it for years, didnt like to use it for drumming, but for darts it is great.

And if u are not satisfait with the quality or quantity you're getting from the darts vendors, try to find some other solution in other sports (handball, climbing) or musician accessories.
Grip isnt only important in darts.

I/U can/ have also made my own chalk + rosin powder, as i found the chalk(MgCO3) could be a bit more sticky.

All i/ u have to do is dissolve some, not much, rosin (for soldering) in some ethanol (alcohol for cleaning/of any strength) and to mix them with the pure chalk. The alcohol will evaporate soon and you have now a well-mixed, sticky chalk-rosin-powder. Plus u can determine the tackiness by using more or less rosin.
It's working great and it's cheap!

This is what I use in my pole dancing class.

Got to agree with this, I thought it might be a "gimmick" but it really works !,
Cant recommend Rosin highly enough
