As always from red dragon these darts came packaged pretty much perfectly, the handy bar wallet that easily fits in the pocket, although the darts are very affordable it always feels like you get more than your money^s worth, the accessories are there to get playing as soon as your parcel hits the doormat (there^s nothing worse than shelling out £40+ for one of the other manufacturers products and literally just receiving a fancy box and then opening it to find only barrels inside!).
One of the beautiful things about darts is that every single player is unique. We have our own stance, throw and of course equipment, we all have preferences, things we love, things we^re not so keen on and so on, from a personal perspective I^ve never really got on well with a knurled grip and in all honesty I did struggle for the first few hours with these, when that time had passed and I got used to holding them I actually really enjoyed using them, I didn^t score as well as I usually do but for some reason my finishing seemed more accurate than usual which was a pleasant surprise!
For an 80% tungsten dart I was surprised at how much of a beating the barrels could take, after a fortnight of continuous play there is barely a mark on any of the three barrels. The points as always were superb, cannot fault them at all and they are without doubt my personal favourite points I^ve used (I^ve tried a lot!) the overall craftsmanship of the darts as with every other set I^ve reviewed so far has been absolutely spot on and at the bargain price of£11.90 they are an absolute steal, who can argue?
