Playing darts is a lot of fun and like most games the better you get the more fun it becomes. Darts is a game of accuracy and as your skill improves you will find your throws becoming more and more accurate and your darts landing in tighter groups. Steel tip darts made of brass are big and bulky and take up more space on a dart board making it difficult to get all three darts in the same area. You may have even had a throw hit your own dart and bounce out, missing that big score.
At this point it is time to get serious and upgrade to a tungsten steel tip dart. Tungsten is a heavier and more dense material which allows a steel tip dart to be much slimmer and more streamline than a brass dart of the same weight. Thinner darts take up less space which allow you to fit more darts in a small area much more easily. Tungsten is also harder so steel tip darts made of tungsten are more durable and less prone to wear. Tungsten tends to be brittle so it is mixed with nickel silver to avoid breakage. A common ratio is 80% tungsten 20% nickel silver, or 80/20, as well as 90/10. The higher the percentage of tungsten the smaller and slimmer the dart can be, but since tungsten is harder to machine it also means a higher cost. Switching to tungsten steel tip darts will give you a definitive advantage over players using fatter darts made of brass. In addition to fewer bounce-outs, there are endless choices of knurling styles on the barrels that provide a confident grip with less potential for slipping. This is why pros and anyone serious about their game all use tungsten steel tip darts.
