Do you know everything about the dart?

The game of darts requires several accessories like a dartboard and a scoreboard to name a few. Before you go for buying a set of darts, you need to know a few facts which will help in selecting the right one. Although you can find quality darts in any reputable shop like Dartshopper, you should know some of their important aspects which make them useful.

Dart Weight

The weight of the dart is one of the aspects that determine the quality of a dart or how it will work. Usually, darts come in a variety of weights between 12 grams and 50 grams. Players hardly prefer throwing darts of more than 30 grams. However, the ideal weight of a dart for a player must be determined by the speed with which he/she throws. For instance, players who throw darts faster, mostly use lighter darts. 

Dart Barrel

You will find a number of options for barrel grips for the dart weight chosen by you. Some dart barrels come with heavy knurling, whereas some others have a smooth surface. Barrel grips with heavy knurling make it easier to grip the dart. Remember, you should not pick extremely heavy knurling as it may cause darts to stick to your fingers. 

Dart Shafts

Dart shafts are available in uncountable styles and materials that include aluminium, carbon-fibre, plastic, composite and spinning shafts. Plastic shafts are inexpensive and available in a wide variety of colours. They can break easily. On the other hand, solid aluminium-made shafts are durable and sturdy and come in various styles, a few with decorative engraved stripes. 

Dart Flights

Dart flights also differ from each other in styles, shapes, and sizes. You need to decide the type of flight you need depending on the speed you throw and the weight of your dart. Remember, the choice of your flight may impact your game. For instance, dimpled surfaces are supposed to help players in slowing down the throw. Standard and slim are two popular types of flights.

Moreover, you need to know about different tips to decide whether you need a steel tip or soft tip dart.

My motorcycle collection

As a true motorcycle enthusiast, I try to collect as many models as I can. I am especially fond of Harley Davidsons and Suzukis. My collection, which is almost getting too big for my semi-detached, now consists of 3 motorcycles: a Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC 1998, a Suzuki GSF 1200 S Bandit 2005, and my greatest love, a stiletto red Harley Davidson Road King. I love to take that baby out for a ride. Whenever I have a long day of work and I start to feel burned out, I take her out of the garage and I instantly feel better. Nothing is better than feeling the wind in my hair while hearing that lovely raw engine sound. It is my favorite feeling in the world.

A collection is never complete

But just because it seems like I already found my greatest love, that does not mean that my collection is complete. I am still looking for more models, and also a bigger house or garage box to store them in. I spend a lot of my free time browsing the internet. The thing is, it’s quite an expensive hobby. Not only do I have to pay for a motorcycle (and probably soon also for extra storage space…), I also have to pay the costs for import and transport. That is why I tried to find a better and cheaper way to buy motorcycles. And luckily, I found a solution.

The right motorcycle trader

I found a motorcycle trader my area who partners with Double R Trading. They supply worldwide and take care of all the packing and shipping. Double R Trading even developed their own special crate, to make sure that I receive my bikes in perfect condition. With the help of Double R Trading, my motorcycle trader can make sure that all my wishes come true. It does not matter if he orders one single motorcycle or a container load, everything is possible. Now I can finally order that one beautiful American-only model that I have been eyeballing for a couple years now.

From Route 66 to home

At first, I planned to go to America myself, buy the motorcycle there, take it for a road trip on Route 66 and then ship it home. I know that plan sounds like a dream, and after checking the shipping costs I know that it will definitely remain a dream. But with the help of my motorcycle trader, I can buy the motorcycle and let it ship here for an affordable price. I’ll just rent a motorcycle if I’m ever to get my kicks on Route 66.
