Although soft tip darts can be used by professionals, they are especially good for at home players since they do not have the super sharp tip that steel tip darts have. This is great for those of you with kids, or those of you who like to play while drinking and don’t want to end up with a dart through your cheek.
What to Look For When Buying The Best Soft Tip Darts
When buying the best soft tip darts, look for ones that are the right weight by testing them out. If they are too heavy or too light, they will not throw as well. They will be harder to control and probably too difficult for anyone who isn’t a professional. The most common weight for soft tip darts is 18 grams, which is best for beginners.
Also, if you already have a dartboard at home, you should try to choose darts that are the same brand. Manufacturers make darts that complement their own boards, so you are more likely to find the perfect darts for your board if you stick to the same brand.
Before buying, think about what kind of grip you want the darts to have. Knurled, wave, precision, shark fin, micro, and ringed grip are the most common types of grips. If your hands are smooth, you will want a smoother grip. Whereas, if you have rough hands, you will want a dart with a rougher grip.
More than anything else, you will want to keep your budget in mind when you are buying soft tip darts. The prices can range from just a few bucks, to over one hundred. There is no need to spend more than your budget permits. The expensive darts may be tempting to buy, but if you are not a professional, or an aspiring professional, there is no need to buy them. You can find a great dart at any price range. However, it is important to be realistic; you probably can’t get a high end, professional dart for $20. Nevertheless, darts are one of the few things you can purchase on, really, any budget.
