Good review. I came upon an amazing deal on these, and ordered them as a gift to myself for my birthday. Looking forward to them arriving, and giving them a workout in my league next week if they arrive in tie.

Thanks Darren. I look forward to a follow up after playing with them a bit.

Cheers all.

Hi Chris, I as a rear gripper have found grip positioning a little fiddly well I did at 1st to get it right. Grip is great, no need lets say to 'try' to grip them as virtually no or very little finger pressure is needed. Threw my 1st 180 with these since I started up again since July this year so something is working. With front gripping I can't help as with any dart as it doesn't feel natural to me.

I'm not a location gripper as much as I'm a center of gravity (CoG) gripper. I tend to prefer my grip to be just a bit behind the CoG by about 3mm-6mm as a rule. As a result, these look spot on for me thanks to @Getagrip showing exactly where the CoG is located. Its hard enough trying to find the right darts what its down to personal preference and fit, but its even harder as a dart player in the United States, and someone who really appreciates using the right tool for the job, when you cannot go try out darts because nobody stocks them locally. I can do mail order, but if I don't like them, then I either need to accept the loss, or try sorting the return and exchange of them. Having such detailed reviews has been invaluable to me as someone returning to darts after nearly 20 years away from daily play. I still have my original darts, but my throw and grip have changed over those 20 years, and while the mechanics are solid, the nuance of my throw has changed rather a lot. I can tell what I like, and what I want to change from my previous experience, and its make everything so much easier thanks to this sort of review.

Thanks Chris, no shops around here are darts equipment stockists, all gone now so it is the case of reading reviews etc and purchasing on line I'm afraid.

My new C12s arrived today. Here are some pictures out of the box, and after installing Target Firestorm Onyx 30mm points, and Target Pro Grip Spin stems in short.

Balance point, centre of gravity, or whatever you like to call it. Left is stock, and right is after updates.

Here is post updated weight. I was quite surprised how different the weight was between the points. I matched the points and barrels when I swapped them, and they ended up with a total weight range of +/- .02 grams, which was much closer than they were out of the box.

Finally, the full set after conversion, and ready for their first throw.

Well, its four months on, and I really like these overall. I'd prefer most smooth surfaces on the taper of the nose, but its good all the same. Its done what I wanted, and helped me make headway on the shape I'd like to have custom made for myself. I wonder if I might have liked the 24 gram set more, but there is no way for me to know without trying them in person.

Glad they've worked out for you ok. Hard to say in general with weight but I have a short weight range which I can adjust between, 22 to 24 gram inclusive.
