Can anyone recommend any good darts?
Quality Boards. Still got mine from the 80's and going strong.
What's the difference between that one and this one, which is cheaper? - argos.co.uk/pro…528

Not much really but the one above has thin wire and no staples so less chance of the darts bouncing out.

The one you shared from Argos has the thick wire and staples keeping it in. It's rare to have a bounce out but they can be pretty scary when it happens.

I'm no expert tho but that's the first thing I noticed.

The cheaper one will work great. I'd personally buy the one with the thin wire for £21.99 but for the casual dart player it doesn't matter really.

Sorry I can't offer more advice.

Those darts will work fine but with them having plastic/nylon flight shafts they won't last long. Any hit from another dart will snap them.

A set of darts with metal flight shafts will last a lot longer.

They'll be used rarely and they do come with spares, so might be ok? Do you know what price we'd be looking at for metal shafts? Thanks for your help!
It's a ton 80 deal!

I'm no expert. I just fling the casual dart. The ones I bought were steel and had steel flight shafts. I think they are Harrows Blackjack darts. 22g I think. They where only about £10 or so.

I then bought a few packs of decent flights from eBay. Im not good enough or into darts enough to spend more. They do me fine.

These are what I got @pinkchick1987

Turns out they were but not until after the post where you were.

Anyway plastic shafts are fine they just look tacky as hell.
There's no danger with staples and thick wire, the issue is how annoying it is when a dart bounces off. That's not scary as you put it as a dart doesn't ricochet at a 180 degree angle.

A lot!!!!!! The wires on the cheaper one are awful, they're much thicker and also have the big staples in which means you got lots of bounce outs. Darts end up getting blunt and darts end up sticking in the floor, not ideal if the board is positioned above a wooden floor.

The blade board has very thin wires and they're designed to greatly reduce the bounce outs. I dare say that the bristles are better in the blade 5 as well, although for occasional use you won't notice. Even for a casual home player, the blade board for an extra £6 is well worth it.
