Your throwing style. Your design. You decide.
Your throwing style. Your design. You decide.
First choose your tip type (steel or soft), then the length of your tip, the grip of the tip and finally the color of your dart tips. If you are unsure, you will find a small guide and a recommendation for beginners in each step.
Now you can configure the dart barrel step by step. First select the barrel shape, followed by the grip strength and the grip zones. Then you can determine the weight of the barrel and the color of the grip. Optionally you can type in a text for your dart barrel engraving.
The configuration of your dart shaft begins with the selection of the material and then you can determine the length of your desired shafts. In the next step you can choose the design pattern of your shafts and then the color of your dart shafts.
First choose the shape of your dart flight and in the next step determine the micron thickness of your desired flight. Then you can choose the design/pattern and the color of your dart flight or create your own dart flight design. In the last step you can color match the dart flight protector.
The point is the foremost part of the dart. It is responsible for keeping the dart stuck in the dartboard ...
There are two basic types of tips, steel tips and soft tips. The type of tip you play with depends on the choice of dartboard. If you throw on an electronic dartboard, you use the so-called soft tips. For a game on a sisal dartboard, on the other hand, you use darts with steel tips.
Soft tips are made of plastic, which makes them much lighter and they are available in a wide range of colors. They can be replaced or unscrewed as desired.
As the name suggests, steel tips are made of steel. There are notable differences here. Cheap steel tips usually wear out much faster than well-made ones. The result is bouncers, i.e. the bouncing of the dart off the board. Often a steel tip helps, which is not continuously smooth on the surface. Minimal milled grooves provide the perfect hold in the board, as the tip hooks into the so-called sisal fibers.
But there are also alternatives for those who do not yet want to decide completely whether steel or e-darts should become a hobby. Certain steel tips have a thread at the rear end that can be screwed onto the darts like a plastic tip, so that you can switch from an e-dart to a steel dart and vice versa within seconds.
The barrel is the heart and also the handle of the dart. It determines the basic weight and often also the flight behavior ...
There are countless ways to throw his darts and depending on the handle, the barrel should have different properties to create an optimal throwing path. Here a simple motto applies, which is: The dart must fit me and not I myself to the dart. In most cases, even the darts of a world champion do not produce a better result.
The weight of the barrel plays a particularly important role. Here, too, there is a rule for inexperienced players or newcomers to follow. This states that it is much easier for a beginner to start with a heavy barrel. The reason for this is that a heavy barrel flies much more stable than a light one, which already starts to sway due to light air drafts. The more experienced you are, the more often players switch to a lighter barrel to save energy during long matches or training sessions. Barrels are mainly made of brass (eng: Brass) and tungsten (eng: Tungsten) alloys. A high-quality barrel is characterized by a high proportion of tungsten (tungsten), as this material has a high density. This brings some advantages, because the barrel can be produced narrower and it is therefore easier to throw three arrows next to each other in a triple field to achieve a high score.
A player will notice big differences in the shape of the barrel. Because the entire flight behavior, coupled with the throwing technique, ultimately depends on the shape and weight of the barrel. The center of gravity is ultimately very important. A teardrop shape shifts the center of gravity of the dart a bit further forward, so it's more for players who keep their darts close to the tip. Others prefer darts that are as straight as possible, as they tend to grip their darts more centrally. The torpedo shape is particularly suitable for a far back grip, because there the center of gravity of the barrel is in the rear segment.
Also important for the optimal throw of the dart is the right choice of grip elements: You can decide on the number and characteristics of grooves, ripples and contours, so that the best possible grip for the player is created. While some players need a lot of grip on the barrel to avoid slipping, others use a completely smooth barrel. Therefore, there is no definitive solution here. For sweaty hands, we recommend a grippy barrel with lots of grooves and gouges.
Lastly, a perfect grip point is important for success. After finding the right shape and surface of the dart, the grip should sit in the right position. The length plays an important role when it comes to where you touch the darts and how much space your fingers need for it. Another grip needs longer barrels. In any case, the wealth of variants in different shapes and lengths is so great that there should be something for every throwing style. Especially for newcomers are therefore barrels with a clear grip point certainly advantageous, because so each time quickly the same grip point and thus his own optimal finger position can be felt.
Of course, the barrels are available in a wide range of colors and designs. From plain silver handles to rainbow-like barrels, everything is there. In our configurator you will find all possible combinations of barrel features. Click through and find your perfect dart.
The shaft is the connecting piece between barrel and flight and contributes to the stability of the trajectory ...
The shafts are available in different lengths and materials and are easy to replace. Therefore, you can experiment with different settings to achieve the best possible performance. Shafts are usually made of aluminum or plastics.
The advantage of the aluminum shafts is that they are on the one hand more robust than the plastic shafts and on the other hand that the flight has a good grip. Therefore, the aluminum shaft is often used, especially by amateur players.
The big problem with aluminum products, however, is that the shaft can bend and become unusable. The plastic shaft is cheaper and lighter than the aluminum models. However, the plastic shaft robs a player of the last nerve without proper attachment of the flight. In addition, the plastic shaft can break quickly and is then also no longer usable.
Once you have decided on a material, the question of length remains. A longer shaft ensures a stable throwing curve of the dart. Especially for beginners in the sport of darts, a longer shaft is suitable, because they stabilize the flight behavior of the dart more strongly. While the center of gravity shifts backwards with such a shaft, the opposite happens with a short shaft. So for a player who likes to lay the darts on top of each other, it makes sense to use a long shaft, because the dart hangs down a bit. A short shaft, on the other hand, is used by players who throw the first dart in order to place the next two below it.
Both the aluminum and plastic shafts are available in a wide range of colors and designs. You can choose between different shades, patterns and color combinations, so everyone can find their own unique design.
The flight is the rearmost component of the dart and is often referred to as the wing.
Without the flight, a throw with the tip towards the board would be impossible. The flight stabilizes the throw so that the arrow actually arrives at the board with the tip first. There are huge differences here, especially in the shapes.
The most common variants are Standard, Pear, Kite and Slim. Almost every player uses one of these variants as a flight. There is no optimal recommendation, which flight is the perfect one. Basically you can only say: the lighter the dart, the smaller the flight. The standard flight type is the most common shape.
Especially for beginners, these large flights are suitable to ensure the most stable throw possible. Small flights, on the other hand, are used more by experienced players, as they often play with lighter darts. Flights not only help to achieve a more stable trajectory, but also to give the dart a personal touch.
