Target Swiss Point | Steel Tip Game Changer

Target Swiss Point Interchangeable System

In September of 2019, Target Darts originally presented the Swiss Point System – a patented locking system technology that uses a taper and hex. Although inter-changeable points are not a new idea, this system puts a new spin on the concept. Target is consistently growing their options of sizes, grip textures, designs and shapes for their patented Swiss Point System. A brand new range of Target Swiss Points called the Swiss Nano was released as apart of their 2021 launch. Target has also increased the size of current ranges to a longer point for smooth, fire point and diamond point in silver, black and gold.

The 4 major Benefits of the Target Swiss Point System:

The taper goes in and snugs up inside the barrel, so it 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 Swiss Point system is the perfect backup solution for broken points. You have the ability to change 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.

When you change your board – change your points. Protect your home practice 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.

The Target 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 can replace them on the spot in a pinch! 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.
