A Well Balanced Dart

Tossing 60s practice I hit one of these "Balancing Acts" which for me are far more rare than even a robin hood. You can aim for a previously thrown dart, afterall, but you cannot aim for a balancing act.


These are my 24 gram Mega-Thrusts from Bottelsen, with standard hammerhead points and a Dynastar back end. I am still waiting for my low profile conversion points so I can make these fixed point without them being ugly. I am infinitely patient. I guess.

Glad you liked it GD. I have lately taken to calling the the 'Juergen' since there is an occastional visitor to the site that sent me a photo of his balancing act. Look through some of the archives you should see it in there!

i like to know how that turns out. i heard that the mega thrust were going to FP coming out, when i have no clue. i have a set of mega in 24 grams and wondered how the FP would be.

Skizrock: The only picture I have is the cheezy little drawing of what I wanted that I sent to Jeff Pickup. He sstarted working on them for me before the tourney season hit in Canada. I hope to have them soon.

kdog: I know what you are saying I think the mega thrusts are really good darts but I think they would be better as FP darts. The hammer head points just bother me. But don't fret it dude, when I get em I will blog em in a heartbeat.

Too bad yours got away kdog. We throw our darts at the board thousands of times its cool wheen they do something weird, gotta get a cam so they don't get away no more!
