Gift dart for beginner
My young nephew lives across the country and seems interested in throwing darts. He has no money to buy his own darts so I want to get him at least one set to try. What would you recommend I buy for him not costing a lot of money but better than bar darts? And steel tip since that's what his Uncle throws.

Look at the Elkadart or McCoy ranges. Both are reasonably priced and the quality is good. Actually the Elkadarts might be a bit better quality wise.

Does he have his own dartboard to play with in case? Kids change their mind fast especially if they get bored and want to try a new thing. They will get super bored if they have no one to play with. Most of the dart venues are in the bar - you wouldn't ask him to join the league if he is below 21 years old. He can't even afford to buy accessories for sure.

Tell him to play Soccer instead, play with other kids of his age, and study hard! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. That's what I told my 12 year old son to do when he started beating me with my own darts!!! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Hey guys. The nephew is 14 and 6' tall. He has his own board and mostly they just hang out winging at the board. But he lost the darts as kids do when they move.
I'll look at Pure and check out what you recommend. Thanks for your suggestions. If he lived close to me I could throw with him and show him my bad habits but not possible which is probably a good thing, I'd have him drinking pints all night and not getting any better
The hunt begins and when I visit my family across the country I'll have him all set up to have somebody to play with

I recommend Unicorn Purist Phase 2 24g for a beginning dart. It was my first set and I love them, as a lot of people do. I still use it to this day, and its cheap Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. $34 on A-Zdarts

After much discussion with my family back east it seems like the boy isn't that much interested in the game any more than he is in sports. If I was living closer I could maybe have more involvement in their family. but, to not bore you all with that I hope to end the discussion and your help was well intended.
It's like trying to get a person involved in healthy dieting when all they like is frits and soda................like me

Oh well, can't be forced. Perhaps in the future he will come back to darts like many do. He may go to a bar that has a board and start up again.

I would say to stick with a 24 or 25 gram straight barrel dart with a simple ring or knurl grip.

What?!? He's 14 years old and six feet tall?

Hell! Buy him a basketball!

HaHa. I'm going to send my Mom back with a set of darts that I have and the kid can do what he wants with them. If he chooses to throw them good and if not, oh well.
In our family discussion it came out that a lot of younger kids are more into video games than they are getting involved in active movement of any kind. Maybe that has something to do with the child obesity problem in the USofA?
I guess I was lucky to have found darts when young.
