Performance Darts Triumph Review

Performance Darts – Triumph – 22g darts review

Target Cool Play Darts Shirt

Target Cool Play Darts Shirt Review

Let’s face it; most darts players are hardly renowned for their sharp dress sense are they?  A pair of nylon slacks, a dodgy shirt and (unless you have dispensation for medical reasons) plain black shoes. Of the three, the shirt is the item of clothing that players can use to […]

Winmau SightRight

Product Review and Giveaway – Winmau SightRight

Winmau SightRight I have been intrigued by this product ever since the adverts for it started cropping up a while back. In fact Red Dragon had completely sold out at the time of the initial review request, so clearly I wasn’t the only one. First things first, it’s not an […]

RED DRAGON COPPER TONE DARTS
