28 gram GT's


These are some of my favorite darts although I do not throw them much anymore due to their weight. They are 28 gram GT's by Bottelsen. I have been gravitating towards a lighter dart lately and so these are getting more shelf time than not. Their salient taper is hands down the best in the business. They have no texture on the barrel in the form of grooves or rings or knurling but they do not need it. The dart is best gripped around the forward part of the barrel. These were the first expensive set of darts I ever bought. I got an awesome discount on them through the bar I played for at the time or I would not have bought them. If I had know then what I know now I'd have bough the 24 gram version. Note how the black coating has almost completely worn off. Here is the break down of them as pictured:
