     The Custom Dart Ordering Experience

    Darts & Stuff of InterestSLEEPYKRAMER writes "Hello SEWA! I would like to share with everyone a review of our custom dart ordering experience.

    We’ve played this game a long time. Always, it seemed that there was never a problem trying to get a set of darts made to our satisfaction….that was…until the years 2007/2008.

    Gone are the days where we could drive about 45 minutes up the freeway, walk into a long-standing dart shop where the owner could machine a set of darts for you in 30 minutes or less. Such was the case with old time darter and store owner of Pacer Dart Shop, Lorna Pederson. Lorna was a goddess on the lathe and literally could have a set done for you in 30 minutes or less. Many a time we would pop into the shop, tell her what we had in mind, she would send us to the pub next door for a beer and before that beer was finished, she was there with a set for us to try. Alas, sadly….the Pederson’s retired, sold the shop and moved to Australia.

    2007 began our quest for someone to make us the exact dart we were looking for and to be able to give us a quality product as well. We tried one, then their machine broke…and then they lost one of our samples. We tried another, and all three did not match, not once….but twice….not to mention, there was some liberty taken with our design. We thought of Canada, but the payment arrangement did not work. We even went back to Pacer Darts that is still in business…only to hear that their machinist had quit 2 weeks prior to my call. We tried China….well China only wants to deal in bulk or not at all. Needless to say, it has been a long and frustrating process.

    One day, there was an epiphany….why not try an internet search for custom dart makers in….well…..the land of darts….England!! I know, silly me for not thinking this sooner!

    With this search we came across a company called Tylermade. There is a thread on the site about them, but after our experience, I do not feel that it did them justice. During the last 4 months, we have had 4 custom sets of darts made, each time with a slight tweak to the design. Each time, the staff was courteous, efficient, and always willing to help expedite us through this process to get the darts that we considered perfect. And each time, the darts were exactly to our specification and weight request. And there was an added benefit of how easy their website is to navigate and pay for a custom order.

    I just wanted to share with the SEWA world that there is hope out there if you happen to be looking for a set of darts made to the way you want them made. Don’t give up! We didn’t and could not be happier with the results. Like I mentioned at the start, we have been in this game a long time. We have seen dart companies, etc. come and go. We have had the opportunity to promote products and the ability to pick and choose who we care to associate our names with. It is only through experience with this adventure can I honestly recommend this company wholeheartedly to the rest of the darting world.

    Good to hear you found somewhere else to get your darts made.
    Where abouts in Australia did Lorna move to?
    Did she start up another shop?
    I'm in Australia and would love to get a set of darts made
