What was your first ever set? What made you choose that one set? Do u still have them?

My first ever was 23g amberjacks because the orange matched my hair Smile and 23g is about standard.

Cant remember what my first set where, but the ones I got when I started again where Harrows Boxer. I dont have them anymore though.

Not really sure why I bought them at the time, maybe it was the price £10. Smile

First proper set I got were the 25g Bristow ones from Argos (Crafty Cockney?) and yep, still got them.

Probably more down to luck as I lost them for 10 years and found them stuck in the beams in the attic while I was having a clear out a couple of years ago http://i111.photobuc

My first set I ain't got a clue what they are - I can't access my photobucket account from work but they are 22g and similar to the Unicorn Jetsets. I know they aren't Jetsets as they only came out in 1981 and I bought my darts in late 1976 or early 1977

Played with various brass darforests until I started playing more seriously in the local leagues 20'ish years ago). First set of tungsten darts was a set of Datadart Easy Fighter's in 22g. Still have them. Still throw them.
Just a really comfortable dart to hold and throw.
Circa 1990's..... [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

My first set was a set of light razor grips, just because I already had them in the house! Quickly sold them online and got some John Lowe's!

There, that should work. These are my Datadart Easy Fighters circa 1990's (medium stems, springs and Pentathlon/Amazon flights)....

I thought the same, very similar to Manleys - they look good with the Cosmo's. Smile

Yeah, I'm not sure if Datadart has changed the design of these since they were purchased 2 decades ago. In the ones in the photo you can see that there is a distinct taper that runs approximately the same length as the grooved section. I'm led to believe that never versions are a straight taper from the rear of the barrel to the front. Can anyone confirm this? I'd lie to pick up another set as spares but want a set with the same shape as the set above.

I meant to post the pic of mine a couple of weeks back - here they are, and they still fly nice today. Rubbish picture - the flights are a set of my old company flights I used to use back then as well when playing for them
