They are part of Unicorns new 2013 range.

They come in the same style box and case as the Phase 5's and other Sigma darts:

They come fitted with the screw in Sigma ZeroD Carbon Nose Cones and the New Sigma Super Pro Carbon Fibre Shafts.

The Barrels are 95% tungsten and are symmetrically balanced so you could fit the nose cones either end I guess. There is one set of Sigma Flights and an extra set of Carbon Nose Cones with Finger Grip style points.

The darts were very close to the weight stated on the card which was 21.2g, the nose cones have a pre fitted rubber O ring to help keep them tight into the barrel and so do the shafts. Here is the measurements and weight:

I think because of the lightness of the Carbon Nose Cone and Shafts the balance point was a little past the centre of the barrel:

This changed a little with standard Nylon stems and standard flights, here fitted with medium, short and Extra short stems:

A comparison of a Medium stem with the Carbon stems:

There was quite a big difference in the weight between the two as can be seen in the pics below:

My grip on these darts:

Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.


When I first threw the darts as you can see in the vid, my first dart took me by surprise and hit the 12 I think. I was not prepared for how zippy they felt. Not sure if that is because of the weight or the Sigma flights as I usually prefer standards which are a little more floaty for me and suit me better.

They are a medium level grip with just a simple ring grip style pattern.

I only had a few throws at first, but the next day I was itching to give them another try to see if I could tame them Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I had a few throws and started to get the hang of them and was enjoying the feel of their speed through the air. Although they are still a bit long for me and I did hit my cheek a few times, and those Sigma flights are bloody sharp! :lol!:

But I was starting to really warm to them. I thought I would have a go with some short nylons and standard flights, when I did I could not throw them as good or as straight which I thought was a bit weird. So the set up as they come is perfect really but it may take a breaking in period to get familiar with them, but if you have a quick direct throw you may just love them.

They are a very nice dart overall and quite eye catching I think, a very nice quality too.

I fancy trying a set in a slightly heavier weight too. Regarding the Carbon Fibre side of the darts, I cant really say what the advantage of that is other than the lightness, the shafts are very rigid but I worry that they may crack or snap if they hit a hard surface, but as the darts are for our comp I cant play with them long enough to test their durability.

Overall though a very nice set of darts they get a big thumbs up from me.

Excellent review as ever, I had decided NOT to spend any money on these, I don't need them. Do I? Might be nice to try and join the harem though.
Interesting blog re the development of these things https://www.unicorn-darts.com/news/2010/...cious.aspx
You don't mess with The Voice of Reason. You have the right to be wrong.

Great review. I bet those would look the business with a set of silver Target titanium conversion points on them. The nose cone make them look a bit long as is.
Digging the flights.
