Steel 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 weights are between 22 grams and 25 grams.  Steel tip darts are weighed barrel and point only. 

 Steel tip darts have either fixed or moveable points.  The most common type of steel tip dart is the fixed point.  The reasoning behind a moveable point dart is it allows for fewer bounce outs when you hit the wires on the board.
