17 gram Silversofts

These are 17 gram Silversofts by Halex. Sold as a soft tip dart (and weighted for one) these darts have a lot of potential for mixing and matching stems and points, etc. The barrel is so long though that it is difficult to find shafts that work well with it. Mediums are out of the question and even in-between is a bit long for these. However, any short, extra short, or even micro shafts will work just fine with them. One problem they have is that after a couple of hours of play they are hard to throw because the barrels get slippery. This is the only semi-smooth barrel I have that has this problem. Even the GT's do not get this way and they have no texture either. Here is the break down of them as pictured:
