DataDart Sawtooth 25 gram 90% Tungsten
Review – The skin gripping dart from Datadart.
Sawtooth is both elegant and functional, whilst at its heart is a traditional straight barrel. Datadart has designed Sawtooth for players with ‘grip’ and slipping problems. Benefitting from Sawtooth cut front teeth and aggressive CNC machined rear grooves, this beautiful 90% tungsten dart gives great levels of feel and control, so aiding the darters’ confidence.
When starting out playing darts it is not long before your game improves develops and you start looking for the best dart to suit your style. I have done this with the DataDart Sawtooth with more grip 90 % Tungsten dart.
Why is this dart so suitable to my game and possibly yours I will show you
This is my original grip it has changed slightly (see image below) but I have been struggling to find a dart that has the barrel length and grip level that I like and this is what I have found in this bitting champion of a dart.
I suffer from eczema and apply a lot of cream to hands so they are always soft this is why I like a grippy dart, the Sawtooth is a 5 level grip. At first, I thought it may be too grippy but no it has a grip in the right places. Its barrel is a little shorter than the Wolfie which is my other dart of preference now
So let’s look at the dart
These are the Stats of the darts
21g – Length 47.90mm Width 6.30mm
23g – Length 48.00mm Width 6.70mm
25g – Length 51.60mm Width 6.80mm
Being 25 gram and slim the darts allows you a bit more control, which in turn gives you confidence in the dart.
The Barrel is your traditional straight barrel
The points stay in the board I throw a little hard and they stay, sometimes you have to give them a good yank out of the board.
The Shaft is a silver alloy that matches the whole look and feel of the dart, the shaft is there intermediate at first I had a little trouble getting the flight in as I didn’t realise that these types of shafts hold the flight firmly and will be hard to remove in play.
The Flights that come with the darts are the DataDart White metronic I couldn’t find the exact information but they feel about 100 microns.
For me these darts are straight into the kit bag and not to be removed, as they are set up out of the box I fell in love with them, the grip is what wins me over with these darts.
Being a traditional dart you can be more aggressive to the board and group a lot closer
These are the darts for me I have rated them 10/10 I know this is subjective but that’s where the site, they are as good if not better than the more known brands in Australia like Target, Winmau, Red Dragon, but these little beauties out of the UK are just that beauties.
The other great things are that they are at a price point that will allow all players to purchase them at the time of writing they were $74.95 which is great value for a 90% tungsten dart with a titanium coating.
The DataDart Sawtooth would suit all levels of player with the best part being if you are new to the sport of darts these are a great starting to point to play with that won’t break the bank and you will be using for years to come.
