My New Accudart 301's

These are some seriously sweet darts. I have been throwing them and from the get go they have been completely brilliant. The very first time I threw em I hit a double bull. (That happens to me often. I can count at least three other times in bars where I have picked up someone's darts and hit the dead center of the board. Uncanny.)

As you can see I have already configured them to my own sense of style and function. A shorter dart is better and a bigger flight for the heavier barrel. There are a couple of things I like about these darts. The first and foremost is that they were a gift from Mcvickj, with whom I trade darts occasionally. The second is that they are big thick barrels that have some real heft to em. I have been leaning toward more fuller bodied darts lately and these really fit that bill. Thirdly, take a look at the barrels. Tungsten up front Brass in the rear. That reminds me of a hair cut...

Business up front, party in the rear. Who can name that doo?

Another interesting aspect of these darts is that they are threaded 1/4" and so my stem selection is limited to what few of those I have. These black aluminum 1/4" stems work nicely however and so there is no need to fret on that one. I plan on using these in league this year. I have already hit some pretty good numbers with them in practice and the way I hold them really makes me point them at the board. I feel a little bit of the old spin creeping back into the throw too. Can't wait to see how that pans out.
