|Do your darts need a clean up?|
|Most dart players use the same darts for
years, whilst I have nothing against this "if it's not broken then
don't fix it" is the theory, it is advisable to have at least another
set identical to the regular ones being used, you may lose them or someone
may accidentally pick them up from a table or bar, I prefer to renew my
darts every 10 weeks or so but then again I am one of the
lucky players who as a sponsor that allows me to change darts regular.
My reason for change is all down to feel, whilst weight may be a very important part of perfecting your throw, the feel is for me the most important part of a dart.
For you that cannot change your darts regular probably because of the cost involved then you should give them a good clean up now and again, just think of how many times you pick them up and put them down, pick up a drink then your darts, read a paper then pick up your darts, they become quite dirty to say the least, solution, good old fashioned household bleach, NOT industrial bleach, just fill up a container put the barrels in and leave overnight, a good rinse under the hot tap and presto the darts are back to new and that all important feel is back, alternately if you are travelling and need to refresh your darts then reach for the toothpaste it works just the same.
