Soft Tip



All Darts Sold in a set of 3





Darts are made of brass, nickel silver or tungsten. 

 Brass is a soft/light material, which makes for easy machining, which keeps costs down.  Due to the lightness of this material, the darts can be bulky as the weight increases.

 Nickel Silver is slightly heavier than brass, but is still considered a soft/light material. Again, a nickel-silver dart will be bulky as the weight increases.  Nickel-silver darts do not tarnish as easily as brass darts and usually retain their luster longer.

 Tungsten is a brittle and dense material.  Because of its brittleness another alloy is added to it to avoid breakage, the most common is nickel.  The higher the percentage of tungsten, the density increases in the barrel.  Thereby you can have a smaller barrel (than brass or nickel-silver) even with the same or greater weight.  The higher the percentage of tungsten, the cost of the dart usually goes up.  This is because Tungsten is a harder material to machine.  The hardness of a Tungsten barrel allows it to retain its grooves and knurl longer than a Nickel Silver or Brass dart.  Tungsten is a preferred choice for more serious darters because you can group your darts tighter with a smaller barrel. 

The most common weight for soft tip darts is 18 grams, followed by 16 grams.  Soft tip darts are weighed complete (flight, shaft, barrel and point).

 Most soft tip darts have both 2ba tip and shaft thread size, this allows for easily reversing the barrel to find a better grip--based on individual preference.  Occasionally, you will find a ¼” tip size, but this is not that common.  Keep this in mind when purchasing accessories for your soft tip darts or when purchasing multiple sets of darts that you may want to use the same tip size for all.  

 

Darts with any type of coating are not guaranteed due to wear and tear. Some Manufactures do warranty their darts against fractures and breakage. However, coatings are NOT guaranteed (this includes titanium, grafix or any type of paint on the barrel)
