In September 2019, Target Darts presented the Swiss Point technology: a patented locking system that uses a taper and hex. Although inter-changeable points are not a new idea, this system puts a new spin on the concept.
There are four major benefits of the Swiss Point system:
The points will never loosen
The taper goes in and snugs up inside the barrel, so i does not loosen. It’s a technology that has been proven successful in other sports. Target Darts is the first to implement this system in the dart industry.
The Perfect Backup
The Swiss Point system is the perfect backup solution for broken points. You have the ability to change your points on the fly! Not only can you customize your points according to the board you are playing on, but it offers a real solution to the problem of broken steel points. Should you encounter a broken point, you can quickly fix the problem with a back up set of Swiss Points.
Save You Board
Change your board-change your points. Protect your home board by using the less aggressive smooth points. Then for league or tournament play, where you absolutely need your darts to stick, switch to grip edged points for optimal performance.
Save money and time.
The Swiss Point system offers a quick, inexpensive and easy way to replace broken points. You only have the cost of the points-no labor. Plus you replace them on the spot. The points have a groove which was placed purposefully as a break point. If the point snaps-it should fail at this spot, which is located far enough from the barrel to allow the wrench to grab the hex. The goal is to prevent points from shearing off at the barrel. Therefore eliminating the problem of expensive point pullers and figuring out how to replace a broken point on your own or finding a professional to do it for you.
Target Darts’ Swiss Point technology is the perfect locking system where the steel point will never come loose. Point options can assist in prolonging the life of your favorite bristle board. Changing a broken point with this system is a no-hassle, quick and user-friendly experience. We are sure to see an expanded line of Swiss Point dart styles as the technology becomes more popular. Currently, Target Darts offers four barrel models featuring the Swiss Point technology in various weights.
