There are many different darts to select from including wooden, brass, nickel/silver and tungsten darts. The most famous dart for league throwers is the tungsten dart. The high-density tungsten withstands wear and permits barrels to be more slender, for tighter groups, while keeping up the weight of the dart, reducing bounce-outs. When buying tungsten darts, make sure to pay attention to the percentage of tungsten in the dart barrels, it is very important to the true quality of the dart. The higher the proportion the better, and much more high-priced, the dart.
