Steel tip darts brass and tungsten
You will have noticed that there is a lot of price difference between the different darts. The price difference is due to the material the barrel is made of. Brass darts are cheaper than Tungsten darts. Brass darts are suitable for children, beginners and recreational players, Tungsten darts are for the advanced darter and the professionals. The difference between the brass and tungsten darts is not durability but functionality.
Tungsten is a heavier material and the barrel can be thinner and smaller, the higher the percentage of Tungsten, the thinner the barrel.
How to choose the right dart
Which steel tip dart is most suitable for you is difficult to determine. However, there are some guidelines. Are you only going to play darts for fun, then you can choose the cheaper brass darts, if you want to play darts more seriously then tungsten darts are more suitable. Darts are available in different weights. The heavier the dart, the more precise you can throw; the dart will not sway as quickly, but the disadvantage is that you have to throw with more force to achieve the right speed. The most common weights for steeltip darts are from 21 grams to 26 grams and the most used weight for steel tip darts is 24 grams. Because you hold the dart by the barrel, the shape and grip of the barrel is important. Darts with a lot of grip can be recognized by their structure, these barrels often have a ringed or knurled structure. How much grip you need depends on your hands, do you have dry hands or moist hands. The dart should of course leave your hand without any problems, but it should not slip out of it either.
You will therefore largely discover which dart is best for you by playing darts with different darts.
