Webster goes diamond for 2021

By AIM180 16/01/2021

Mark Webster's darts have undergone a radical reformation over the past few years. The 2008 World Champion began his career using a very simple tungsten barrel with a snub nose and a few grooves on the lower sections. His latest weapons are about as far away as you can get. Winmau have leveraged much of their technical know-how into this elegant but unfussy dart
 

Product: Steel Tip Darts

Brand: Winmau

Materials: 90% Tungsten

Dimensions: 48.3mm x 7mm

Weight: 25g

RRP: £55.95

General:

The latest edition has been released, for the 2021 collection, by Marks' long-time manufacture Winmau. 
Two sections of 'black diamond' grip have been added to the dart on either side of the lightly grooved centre section. This addition has transformed the dart. 

Open the Box:

With the three, 90%, tungsten barrels come tucked into branded point protector and a colour coordinated set - up of Vectra stems (3) and Prism Alpha flights. Black steel points are supplied and fitted.

Testing feedback:

The difference in these darts from previous editions is remarkable. The revamp gives the appearance of real muscle while retaining the precision instrument performance. The 'black diamond' grip sections give almost every type of thrower a way to get the most out of them. You can even use the two sections as a guide of where not to hold them! The simple barrel design still does its no-fuss job but the new grip zones seem to add assured confidence that was not there previously.


Set-Up & Durability:

We have always found the diamond range to be exceptionally durable and for some players the more worn in they are the better they like them. With the supplied set up Mark's dart suits most conventional throwers. Rear holders added more tapered stems and a smaller sized std flight do get a less direct flight path.


Snapshot:

The Mark Webster (2021) signature dart is a premium dart with a no-nonsense look and feel. There are no unnecessary cosmetics and as a result, the dart is as reliable as it is impressive. They can be used to great effect by a wide cross-section of throwers although we expect that they will prove exceptionally popular with methodical players who like to power score and not mess about. At around £55 they are good value and slightly less than some premier models.

Marks: 9/10

The markets ranged from 8.5 to 9.5 for functionality, looks, performance, and value. 9/10 seems a just result for this excellent addition to the 2021 player market.
