    I use darts with the hammer head type points. I have used them for over 20 years. However I see that most pro players use the fixed points. My question is, is there really a major difference in bounce outs, from one type of point to the next? And if so, what do you think the reason is?


    Thanks
    Frank Smith (Chitown)

    Thin razor embedded wire dartboards has made moveable points obsolete.

    Unless you mainly play your leagues or tournaments on old round wire boards full of staples of course Laughing

    Thanks for answering Scotty. So basically, it really makes no difference, since the new boards cater to the fixed point darts. Hmmm, I have a new name for my darts, "Obsolete". Thanks Scotty, I needed that Laughing Laughing Laughing


    Thanks again for the quick response
    Frank

    I know I was very happy to go back to fixed tip darts Frank. I used Len Heard darts with fixed tips from 1979 until I was sponsored for a while in the mid-80's with Bottelsen, then I had to use Walt's GT's and they had hammerheads. After that I had a few sets of Len Heard's drilled out at Sandy Reitan's shop to accomodate hammerheads (and was able to put my armored athletic cup away - I used to have bounce-outs sometimes four feet behind the oche! Shocked ). About four years ago I moved up to a heavier dart (I throw 21g darts now) and these are fixed tip. I love 'em! Fewer moving parts and I no longer have to replace the tips periodically. I only have to be careful when I play on an old diamond wire board where the wires have twisted to display a flat side. Wink
