Jack Hood darts
Just taken delivery of these - I'm sure someone here has a set of the same darts with customised grip on them (Darren or Stuart?) but I can't find the post.

Anyway, Jack won the 1932 NOTW title - here's a couple of quick pics. As you can see the darts actually say J R Hoods - not sure why the "s" on the end, but if you look at the last pic (shamelessly nicked from the old forum lol) his stall has the "s" on the end as well:

They came in a brown leather wallet that has the stitching coming apart in places, but also included were a set of JRH flights:

Jack is the bloke on the right here:

I'm sure I read somewhere - may have been here or the old forum - but he used to supply the boards for the NOTW championships. Given that connection these darts bear an uncanny resemblance to the silver darts the NOTW used to hand out.

The R doesn't stand for Robin unfortunately - from memory it stands for Robert

Great looking darts, and a nice bit of trivia too.
Considering their age, the design is still relevant today.

Wow nice! I am sure those didn't come cheap.

Nice one!

Are they the ones off ebay that were £100? I seen those and was thinking of putting in a bid as they had a start price of £30 I think, but I already have a set that I got very cheaply with a couple of other old brass darts, think it cost about £35 for the 3 sets but I don't think the case I got was original and there was no paper flights if I remember but the case that was in the ebay description is identical to another case I have with some old brass darts so may be they are the original Jack Hood cases?

The other Jack Hood darts I had were in an Aluminium case but there was some debate about whether the darts inside were actually Jack Hood made or not. Don't have those any more though, think I traded them for another vintage set.

That was the ones - I was thinking of getting a set of Royden Lam Cosmo's but got these instead lol. I'm guessing it isn't you then with the set with the additional grip added? I had a look on here and couldn't see the thread I was thinking of and I couldn't find it over at the old site either (that's still there btw Smile )

I had some Willie Etheringtons that had grip which appeared to be added on, may be its those your thinking of?

Jack was my great grandfather. I know those specific darts were stolen from his house and hd told all of his surviving relatives to keep a look out for them. I will be nice and not press charges....since I'm the sole heir, please mail them back to me. Wink
