    Played around a bit and tossed a few turns with these beauties. They were from my father in law. Unicorn Tom Barrett. Almost 30 grams with wooden shaft and real feathers! If the points were longer I think they’d have been sticking in the wall behind he board and cabinet

    06BD3B89-D268-43D5-92E2-3BA7838F47A3.jpeg Tossed a few with the older beauties today. These were the first darts I called my own. Accudart brand. Originally suited up they were like 19 grams but since they are 1/4 inch I have to use add a grams to adapt to 2ba. They wa these are they are like 23 gram. Still fly true though.

    Those are nice looking. For a time, I really enjoyed hunting down old Unicorn brass darts in ebay.

Surprised I hadn’t posted these before! The leftover knurling is from an add a gram that I had to basically jam in there to get to 2ba for shafts.

    Things are good. I fell out of darts for a while, but I'll probably pick them back up someday. You still hear from Taechon, JR, and all those others?

    Taechins has been gone a long time. Craig is still around. Others still pop in now and again.

    How do you like the new site format? Much easier to post pics and vids today!
