Helpful hints

Keeping darts sharp:

When was the last time you sharpened your darts?   Did you know by keeping your darts sharp, this can help prolong the life of your dartboard and without sharpening the tips of darts, they get dull and don't stick in the board. No matter how perfect a player's aim is, in the end it won't matter if their darts don't stay in the board.  

There are a couple of easy ways to do this, sharpening stone or if you're into gadgets, try the Slydart sharpener.  These are very effective and easy to work.

Rotating your number ring:

It's really important to make sure you look after your dartboard.  Dartboards need to have wear evenly spaced across the entire surface of the board or the board will become prematurely worn out from over-compaction of the sisal.
 
To spread wear across your board it should be rotated frequently. Rotate the number ring moving the '20' through to the next blank segment i.e, '20' would become '12'.

The only area of the board, which cannot be protected by turning, is the bullseye area. It is essential that when you are practicing you do not continually practice your play on the bullseye, as this area of the board will wear out. Remember to spread your wear.  
 
Also remember to keep you Dartboard away from moisture!  

 Have a look at this video on how to rotate your number ring.

Tungsten Percentages

Wondered what the difference between the tungsten percentages, what do you buy and does it matter?  

The higher the percengtage of tungsten the narrower the dart can be as Tungsten is alloyed with nickel to give it strength. The higher the percentage of tungsten in the barrel, the better the dart and the greater the scoring potential, this helps by allowing closer groupings. Durability is important, in that it helps retain the dart's precision-machined shape, grooves, and knurling. There are several different tungsten percentages available on the market, the most common being 80% and 90%.

If you are starting out in darts, 80% tungsten provides a quality and affordable dart that will be perfect for you, if you are more experienced, professional player and serious about your darts, 90% tungsten is for you.
