While developing our Alchemy range, A.I.M: came across a little discussed fact: Many exceptional players use light or very light darts. For example, Ted Hankey, Dennis Priestley and Stephen Bunting’s arrows all weight in at less than 18g.
This intrigued one of the players we work with and we set about creating a unique, precision dart for those confident enough to use it!
Again A.I.M: studied thousands of legs of darts, both recorded and in person, to gain an overall picture of the advantages and downsides of these specialist models. We then hit the data and the history books.
After talking to players who used these models or had done before, as well as those who had customised existing sets, the following year was spent designing, commissioning and testing. Both the dart and the set up were tested to near extinction. By the final prototype (DX11) we were happy.
A.I.M: Instinct, is a dart that goes against the grain of conventional dart production:
- 95% Natural Tungsten
- Ultra Slim 5.6mm tapering to 3.6mm
- 36mm in Length
- Collared Point (One-Piece feel)
- Premium Set Up
If you’ve courage to try them, you’ll soon trust your Instincts! http://www.ebay.co.uk/str/aimdarts
