Topeka Results

I was waiting for the full tournament results, but I never got them. 3 weeks late, but here none-the-less. Well I know one result. Derek Hinkle and I won doubles. 

The Topeka Dart Association ran a great tournament at the Lazy Toad Bar They will probably see me back there for a blind draw or something. 

If you are in the area, check out their FB Page.

Laserdarts - Widowmaker© Soft/Steel tip darts Review

Laserdarts - Widowmaker© Soft/Steel Tip Darts
Description: "Available in 18, 20, 22 and 24 grams, Uncoated Silver or Vapor-coated Black. To switch from soft to steel tip or from fixed to moveable points is change the point. None of the delicate balance is changed".

Let's see what we get. Dart barrels with in-between nylon shafts, L-Style  L3 shape flights and movable soft tips; Set of spare shafts, Set of spare poly flights, Set of movable steel tips, a set of spare soft tips, a dart tool, and a case. That's a lot of stuff.

If there is a dart shape category between front loaded, and straight barrel this would be it. it's a straight barrel dart you can get some push on. if you grip it behind the knurled part. the darts also has a nice sharp knurl.

If this dart is for you, the grip will be distinctive and easily repeatable ...consistent.
Length (approximate): 44.6mm
Diameter: 6.5mm, 7.5mm, 6.5mm, 7.0mm, 6.0mm

This is the movable soft tip point system. Why use a movable point system if bounce outs count? So you don't have to pick them up off the floor. I really like them. They are as advertised, stronger and stiffer. I threw some time at home as well as 2 nights out, not one of those tip broke or needed replacement. Every pick up a dart, you feel the point is bent, but you throw it anyway, and you miss. Those are the few of the advantages.

These points are not specific to these darts. They are available for purchase separately and with work in darts with a .4" to .5" depth.

Mid-Winter Classic (Columbia MO) and 4th Triple Bull (Jefferson, Iowa) tournament Results

In the future I'm going to be more detailed about tournament results. 

Mid-Winter Classic (Columbia MO). 

1st Place Doubles (Mike Walters), 1st Place Mixed Triples, and 1st Place Singles 301. It was a good Saturday, 




 4th Triple Bull (Jefferson, Iowa) tournament Results

Friday Night was good to me. I got Mitchell Livingston as a partner, and we got 2nd. The finals ended 2:45am. The problem was getting back up at 7am to be ready to play singles at 9am  The format was good 501, Cricket, Cricket, 501, then Choice. A best of 5, double elimination tournament. I'll be ready next year. It was a good year to a lot of other local Kansas Citians,
