A Nasty Collision

As you can see from the photo below, this is one of the nastiest dart collisions I have seen in terms of damage to a flight. I have Robin Hooded shafts many times, banged up the outer edges of flights, even knocked a few flights off, but I have never seen a plastic flight rip almost all the way through to the point where it is almost severed, and hanging on by a thread. Makes for a good visual.

GT's Climbing the Ranks

Haven't posted in a while so when I hit this trick, I figured I'd better make a post out of it. I have been using my GT's lately now that I have some nice new conversion points on them. I am getting used to the heavier weight (28 grams) again and I am hitting my marks more often. I have in the last few months ranked my three favorite sets of darts in order:

1. 24g smooth Laserdart KC's
2. 24g smooth Hi-Tek Bombs
3. 28g smooth Bottelsen GT's

But the GT's are climbing again and becoming my prefered dart (as long as I have a fixed point on them).

Going Ringless

I have decided to take the number ring off my dart board. I have been throwing like this for a couple of weeks now. I like it a great deal, and I was surprised a bit that it didn't slow me down too much. I have long "known" where each number was on the board, but this is the first time where I have needed to know "without looking." The board is more pleasing to the eye this way and I can rotate it between throws (if I wanted to) with no hassle.
