List of the Best Steel Tip Darts

The game of darts has intrigued people since the Middle Ages. This game of skill has continued to provide hours of fun for fans around the world. As a person gains experience with this game he will decide which styles of darts works best for his game. Many prefer throwing steel tip darts on traditional boards.

When To Use

While soft tips are suited for electronic boards, use steel tip darts for traditional dartboards. Though most people use darts that weigh between 20 to 25 grams, steel tip darts can come in weights up to 50 grams, though any dart above 30 grams is more difficult to find.

Fixed Tips

Fixed tips are just as the name indicates: the points are securely attached and will not move. These tips are irreplaceable except with certain tools. These are the classic, most common type of steel tip dart.

Moveable Tips

The main purpose of any moveable tip is to decrease the likelihood of bounce-outs. When your moveable tip dart hits a dartboard wire, the barrel of the dart will slide forward and force the point into the board. The dart pierces securely instead of bouncing off onto the floor. A moveable steel tip dart can generally reduce the occurrence of bounce-outs by as much as 80%. Moveable tips are replaceable and they tend to be more expensive than other types.

The Right Dart For You

Some of the most common brands of steel tip dart include Dart World, LaserDarts, DMI, and Accudart. Most brands offer a wide variety of darts. Certain brands run in certain price ranges so you will need to keep your budget in mind. If you often throw on newer or high-quality dartboards, you might be satisfied with a fixed tip dart. But if you throw on harder, older boards you might find the moveable tips to be a worthwhile investment.

Once you’ve followed these basic guidelines, choosing the right dart ultimately comes down to a personal choice. You might need to try a few different styles before you find the right one for you.
