Target Carrera C5 23g Darts Review
These are one of the new models in the Carrera range and were kindly supplied by Puredarts.co.uk and are available to win in our Prize Draw here: https://www.dartsnutz.com/t5610-carrera-c5-prize-draw They are available to buy for £43.19 at Puredarts.co.uk.


The Carrera darts have been very popular since they first came out and now they have more weights and barrel shapes I am sure they will gather more interest.

I have tried the C3 and C4 models but never liked the C4 version as it felt a bit long for me. The front of the grip on the C3 was for me the grippiest part of all the ones I have tried. The Pixel grip feels different and is still a high level of grip but its kind of hard to explain why it feels different, and some people may initially dis-like the feel of it but if you persevere with it you will start to love it.

The darts come supplied in the usual Target packaging without a case:

I quite like the look and shape of these darts, they are a sort of Bullet/Torpedo shape and front weighted:

I know recently that Kev (Big Gun) had some issues with the wearing of the Pixel grip on his Carrera's and I think that is inevitable that a grip will wear, but how quickly is another matter. I have not used a set long enough yet myself to get to that point but I guess its something to think about.

Here is the balance point with the set up from the box:

This is my grip with these darts:

I found the grip to be quite sharp from new but I am sure this will soften in time. The weight of the darts I slightly struggled with at first but after my vid above I had some throws with medium stems and they flew a lot better for me.

The grip is something that you may love or hate but its something that needs to be tried I guess to be able to make your mind up.

The darts are very nicely made and look great.

I would give them a Darts Nutz 5/5 !

So I woke up this morning and checked my emails, and it turns out I placed an order for these last night..

Not that I can remember though.. I was out on the lash. Although I can remember discussing them, as they're a pair I looked at ages ago. 

Oh well, I've only just got a new pair of Target Agora's literally three days ago.. but we'll see how these are too cause they do look amazing!!!

Here's a lesson - never drink heavily and talk darts people!!  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Seeing as I’m the only one keeping this thread alive, and it’s not really been appreciated like it should.. can I be the first to say what a brilliant review!!

Just had half an hour with them. The first set of darts I’ve got from the box that I’ve nailed straight away!! The grip isn’t as sharp as I was expecting to be, I have a mental issue a lot with where I grip the dart and It disrupts my game a lot but with this dart it dont matter where I grip because it’s the same all the way to the back of the barrel - problem solved FOREVER. 

I think that maybe I’ve found my perfect dart, I wish perhaps I had got these sooner.. give it a week or so and if it continues I’ll be placing an order for another pair, cause there don’t seem to be many around now in 23g. I chuffing love them!!

I own them for 2/3 years now in 23gr and love them.
Bought them with a bargan second hand for €10,-online.
They became even better after a while when the sharpness wore down a bit more.
Excellent ballance and easy to throw, for me no bad points. 
Own a lot of sets and tried them all out and these are my favourite and my match darts.

They’re amazing!!

The grip wears off a tiny bit after a few months and they don’t have that ‘prickly’ feel to them, but I find they’re better once they have worn down a bit!!

Give them a good clean once a week with hot water, soap and a toothbrush and the grip stays at a high level.
