    What brand of soft tip darts do you use? Model?

    Of course, for me, it's SEWA's made by REd Dragon / NODOR

    Hey Erik, been a while, couldn't pass-up this topic.

    I have over 20 sets of soft tip darts, but for the last year I have been using
    Monster Helios II 90% Soft Tip Darts (22 Grams) with L-Style shafts (carbon) and flights.

    When i play BullShooters (last played in Virginia Beach) I use a set of Puma Darts (Scott MacKinzie) that I had custom grooved by Atlanta Darts (hmm. 5 or so years ago) they are appox 19.5 grams but never have been questioned about being over the weight limit. When I slip down to Florida and play for LOD money I throw my original BalancePoints (Ton80 model). These are 18 Grams, some of the Bars get real picky about weight when money is involved.

    Here are the soft tip models that I throw, along with some details on the overall setup:

    Brand: Monster Barrels Design
    Model: Hades II
    Total Weight: 18 gm (2BA and No.5), 20 gm (2BA)
    Shaft: L-style Laro Carbon (260 length, aka in-between length)
    Flights: L-style Champagne Slims or Bullet
    Points: L-style Lippoints

    I had a 20gm model developed for DARTSLIVE boards as they allow darts up to 25 gms. But I use the 18gm models more than the 20gm model.

    The Hades models are my signature barrels that I designed. Hades II is version 2.0 of the original Hades model. Both have an aggressive reverse cut grip.

    Hades II 18gm No.5: http://www.a-zdarts.com/Products/Monster-No-5-Soft-Tip-Darts-Hades-II__28-4016-18gm.aspx
    This is the No.5 tip, 18gm fully dressed. The design principle behind the No.5 was was to have more tungsten in the nose, making the barrel balance feel more like a steel tip barrel.

    Hades II 20gm 2BA: http://www.a-zdarts.com/Products/Monster-Hades-II-90-Soft-Tip-Darts__28-1016-20gm.aspx
    This is a 2BA tip, 20gm fully dressed. I had this weight developed for DARTSLIVE boards which accept a heavier soft tip dart.

    Hades (original version) 18gm 2BA: http://www.a-zdarts.com/Products/bb-Monster-Hades-90-Soft-Tip-Darts__bb-28-1002-18gm.aspx
    This is the original Hades model in 2BA, 18gm fully dressed. Now that the new Hades II model is for sale, this original model is being phased. Get this original model while supplies last as this original model is no longer being manufactured.

    After testing loads of top quality soft tip darts The Red Dragon 20g Gerwyn Price soft tips are really good, So are the Winmau Simon Whitlocks 20g soft tips but for me the best are some 24g One80 Nighthunter Sting steel tip darts that I had altered to become 20g soft tips. There is no equal.

    I currently use short Lippoints and think they are a decent tip. Don't break a whole lot, but sometimes have trouble sticking in looser boards.
    Been thinking about switching to fitpoints short, but I've never seen anybody use them alot of fitpoint plus users though. Does anybody know are the fitpoint shorts as good as the plus?

    Welcome to the site! I use (d) fitpoint standards and actually they are very good. Best tip I've used though I was primarily a steel tip player in the softtip world. So I guess take that for what it's worth but after 4 decades of playing darts I must admit the Fit points impressed me and I often used them on a steel board in practice even. They held up very well and I like the tool style tip as they are secure and easy to remove when broken.

    I am currently having some One80 Nighthunter Stings that used to be 24g steel tips, I had them altered to 20g barrels and to accept soft tip points. My set up for soft tip is about 21g. I m toying with the idea of having some new soft tip darts made by Custom darts in the shape of my Nighthunter Stings but a little slimmer.

    I had the new darts made as I said I was thinking about by Custom made darts in 95% Tungsten but to keep the density of the weight of the dart in a small package as I needed for my personal throw I had Tony make them for me in the M3 format, with the thread on the outside of the barrels.
    They are awesome 40mm in Barrel length that can be screw in steel tip or screw on soft tip 6.9mm at the widest point of the barrel and 20G weight barrels only.

    I can change the weight of the darts depending on the Stems or points I decide to use but I am hitting even more 180s than ever before in Practice and competition B4 Lockdown on steel board.
    On soft tip just now I just hit 4 x 180 in 8 throws of count up but due to a couple of bad deflections I was still 10 points light of my record of 1035 pts with split bull when I hit 3 x 180s in 8 throws.

    Another thing I have noticed is that these real 95% Tungsten barrels are not marking up at all, They hit tiled floor and the stanchions of my steel stand that houses my Dart Board and I practice every day for at least 2 hours and many times a lot more hours and yet they still look new. It is as I have always maintained with my Clothes shoes Boots etc Buy British or American, Buy quality, Buy Once.
