I took the plunge and bought new darts.
This was harder than it sounds. I don’t want to end up as one of those people who has multiple sets of darts and can’t choose which ones to use. There is one guy at the club who I watched change which darts he was using more than four times in one night. He seemed dissatisfied with all of them. It made me think that the darts probably weren’t the problem.
I could have bought these darts through eBay or some other website (though not Amazon) but I chose to go to my local games store. This was fun as the owner is quite talkative and quite fun. I am a big believer in supporting local enterprises.
It also gives me a chance to see what other things he has for sale. This usually includes video games, poker tables, pool tables, and of course interesting dart accessories. Did you know that they have a special dartboard with smaller beds to help you improve your aim? Ever heard of dart golf?
I bought some different shafts and flights to compliment my darts and to make it easy to distinguish them from my previous set at a glance.
My trip to the shop was fun. Sadly, he sells very few pinball machines anymore.
