Yohkoh Darts Range by Target | Product Review

Yohkoh Darts Range by Target Cover Photo

Target’s new Yohkoh Darts are inspired by the way light is reflected off of the re-machined grooves at the heart of each barrel. The dance light plays with this range influenced the stained glass fragments that make up the flight and box design.

Yohkoh Darts Name Inspiration

The name Yohkoh is derived from Japanese culture translating to ‘Sunbeam’ in Japanese. The Yohkoh Darts Range is very loud and fun with it’s black and silver barrel complimented by the bright green color in the pro grip shaft and flight. 

Yohkoh Darts Range - Product Review

What's in the video?

Jen Mounts gives you an in-depth review of the Yohkoh Darts Range by Target. She covers the different manufacturing elements like cuts and coating then the varying grip styles throughout the range. Let’s break down each aspect and elaborate a little:

Cuts - Radial Grooves

Yohkoh Darts feature contemporary radial grooves

-The barrels consist of contemporary radial grooves.

The radial grooves on the barrel are re-machined to give a striking silver finish. Paired with Target’s vivid lime green Pro Grip and bespoke Yohkoh flight, the vibrant Yohkoh Darts offers perfectly balanced barrel profiles to suit all throws and techniques.

Grip - PERFORMANCE Coating

Yohkoh Darts feature black PVD performance coating and hand sandblasting to deliver enhance grip

-Features black PVD performance coating and hand sandblasting to delivery enhanced grip.

The red performance coating of Hema was inspired by the rusty red surface of Mars. Complimented by a single black ring on each barrel, Hema fuses striking looks with surgical precision for the ultimate 90% tungsten package.

Weights & Options

There are 5 total options in the Yohkoh Darts Range (3 steel tip labeled 01-03 and 2 soft tip barrels labeled 10 and 11) with multiple barrel weights for each option. Let’s start by comparing the steel tip 01 & the soft tip 10 since they’re a match.

Yohkoh 01 & 10 - Overall

Yohkoh Darts Steel Tip 01 and Soft Tip 10

They are straight barrels – center balanced. Starting in the rear, they have a smooth section that moves into ring cuts. In the center, you have a variation of wider spread and thicker ring cuts to create a more aggressive feel. Finally, the front is a repeat of the back ring cuts and blunt nose.

FRONT & REAR GRIP INTENSITY
2/5
Front & Rear:
2/5

We rate the grip intensity of the front and rear sections a 2 out of 5.

CENTER GRIP INTENSITY:
3/5
Center:
3/5

We rate the grip intensity of the middle section a 3 out of 5.

Yohkoh 02 - OVERALL

Yohkoh Darts Steel Tip 02

The Steel Tip 02 version of the Yohkoh Darts Range is also a straight barrel, but has a larger diameter than the 01. The 02 also has a slight taper in the rear and a more noticeable taper in the front. The new ring cut pattern is like a combination of the two cuts from 01 offering a median grip feel as a result. Finally, the barrel finishes towards the front with a tightly spaced ring grip taper into the nose.

We rate the grip intensity of this barrel overall a 2 ½ out of 5.

GRIP INTENSITY
2.5/5
Grip Intensity:
2.5/5

Yohkoh 03 & 11 - Overall

Yohkoh Darts Steel Tip 03 and Soft Tip 11

03 & 11 have the slightest torpedo shape to them. The differences are 03 basically starts with a tight radial pattern (some with 3 rings) then goes to a more noticeable smooth section, whereas the 11 starts with a noticeable smooth section and goes into a coupled radial pattern. The 11 then does something very interesting and the 2nd smooth section scoops inward and then outward before hitting the center. Last difference is the 02 of course has a more dramatic taper into the nose. 

They both essentially have the same band in the middle and nose grip, however. So the center is unique to the rest of the range because it’s the widest spaced band of radial grooves making it more likely to catch your grip.

FRONT & REAR GRIP INTENSITY
2/5
Front & Rear:
2/5

We rate the grip intensity of the front and rear sections a 2 out of 5.

CENTER GRIP INTENSITY:
3/5
Center:
3/5

We rate the grip intensity of the middle section a 3 out of 5.
