The Art of the Barrel

As the first real request I have gotten for blog content was regarding barrels, I decided to do a series of blog entries discussing various barrel styles and what I like and don't like about them. As you can see from the photo below, I personally own a variety of weights and shapes of barrels. My weights range from 28 to 15 grams and I use both fixed and moving points. My darts can be divided into three weight distribution styles: Forward Weighted, Middle Weighted, and Even Weighted. The forward weighted darts are either Tapered or Forward Bulged, my middle weighted darts all have a slight bulge somewhere mid barrel, and the even weighted darts are either Thin Pencil or Fat Pencil. Future posts will take a closer look at the individual styles so I won't go into detail here.
