Flight Punch / Slotted Flights Review

Flight Punch / Slotted Flights Review

There is nothing worse than distractions at the oche, but players who use nylon stems will be all too familiar with their flights popping out of the stem, usually after some close grouping or other deflection. The subsequent retrieval of a flight off the floor and securing it back in […]

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 […]

red dragon sportswaxx darts grip

SportswaXX Dart Grip Wax Review

I spent last night with a bulging pocket and sore thigh. Yep, it was darts night again. I have always had a problem with gripping my darts. I started with chalk, then went on to licking my fingers, then chalk AND licking my fingers. It sounds pretty gross, and not […]

Red Dragon 24g Foxy Ladies Darts Review

The lovely folk at Red Dragon Darts sent me some new toys! For the last week I have been playing with a set of Foxy Ladies. 24g worth of Foxy Ladies 12, to be precise. Regardless of the 40.06mm barrel being roughly 10mm shorter, and the 8mm barrel about 2mm […]

Red Dragon 26g Fatal Attraction Ladies Darts Review

It’s no secret that ladies darts takes a back seat in the world of tungsten. A quick browse through a random selection of darts websites, show small ladies sections and in some cases none at all. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t go out looking for ladies stuff as […]

OckeysRus Transportable Oche Home

OckeysRus Portable Home Oche Review & Giveaway

For the serious dart player, a decent home setup is essential to facilitate effective practise. There are few parameters in the sport of darts, but the two main requirements are often overlooked – board height and throw length. The height from the floor to the centre of the bulls eye […]

Get Coached by a World Champion

Professional darts coaching seems like a no-brainer to us here at DartsMad and who better to do the coaching than an ex-World Champion? Golf coaching is massive in that particular sport but surprisingly darts coaching doesn’t seem to have taken off; until now perhaps? The Limestone Cowboy himself Bob Anderson […]

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 […]

Product Review and Give Away – Red Dragon Copper Tone Darts

RED DRAGON COPPER TONE DARTS Bling is not King with this reviewer and as such gold darts have always been a no go area for me, why spoil a decent bit of tungsten with tacky gold plating that eventually wears off? Well, Red Dragon kindly sent us a set of […]

Product Review and Give Away – Conquest Home League Scorer

THE CONQUEST HOME LEAGUE SCORER I think it’s fair to say the most people hate chalking, even the pro’s get criticised for not taking their turn at low profile events. Its accepted that in your local pub league it is usually an integral part of the game, but at home […]
