Can't believe I haven't posted this shop before lol

http://halodarts.com/index.php?route=common/home

Halo Darts sell Cosmo gear and are owned by Rob Heckman, Chris White and Gary Cartmel. An excellent company to deal with - very friendly and quick service. They are based in Bolton in the UK but ship worldwide.

They don't have the full range of Cosmo flights on their site but the do stock the main shapes - standard, kite, pear, super shape and super slim - and they have these in all the colours. They have also recently started to stock some of the colours for standard mini's and also some of the Rocket Insides.

They also sell the signature ranges of both Chris and Rob, along with Gary Mawson pears and my favourite John Part standards.

They definitely get a 10/10 from me.

I thought you already posted that one, lol, guess not.

I ordered from them a few times too, I think they were the first to sell the Cosmo gear in the U.K.

No problems with my orders, came nice and quick too.

Hi MC,

Did you get your Roydernlam super kites yet?

If so what do you think?

They eventually turned up yesterday - my neighbour took them in until I got back from work. I posted a couple of pics in another thread but I'll post them here again.

The first is a comparison between a normal kite flight and a standard:

As you can see they are quite small lol. Using my regular throw they were landing in all sorts of angles, but with a little tweaking of the throw I managed to start getting them to land straight - and even hit a max with them lol:

They aren't too bad, although I'm not sure I'll use them in matches - I think I'll stick with either the kites or rocket insides for the league - but the Lam's are a nice addition to the collection.

To me they look very similar to the DXMs that Phil Taylor uses - a flight that I like a lot. Hopefully the lady from COSMO that emailed me to say that it will be a generic flight shape is correct and they eventually come over here, because I will definately buy some!

Oh yeah, been chatting up the Cosmo lady! you naughty boy Very Happy

They do look a little thin, but I like the shape, maybe they should bring out the same shape but in a slightly bigger size?

LOL! Bloody hell!

Who is their designer a 6 year old who just keeps coming out with any shape! Only kidding, but I do wonder if they are just thinking of a shape as a gimmick or whether they are putting some research into the design of said shape.

Would be interesting to know if they have made some tests to determine what the characteristic and benefits of each shape is.

At this rate we will be all confused when they have about 50 different shapes out! Very Happy

Doubt they've done any stringent test on them to work out all the benefits - but I do like the picture on these ones. Not sure if it is the picture on two flights and the words on the other - these Japs have a tendency to do this lol - or whether they are on alternate sides on each flight.

Here's the actual press release for them - sorry for the size - but I must admit I'm looking forward to seeing the finished article on the Dave Fatum flights at the bottom, and the Darin Young ones look like they will be cool as well:

It says a magic square and mysterious writing on the same flight.

So Darin Young has signed for them now, they getting a lot signed up.

Still wonder about the crazy shapes they keep coming out with, and would like to know what affect if any the various shapes have.

Having said that, before poly flights came out there were some strange shaped feather and paper flights too.

Anyone got a discount code for Halo??

Just went to this site from the posting and they give that option.

Of note, put stuff in my cart, gave shipping address here in Canada for a quote, and it says FREE shipping. Bonus.

I wish I had a discount code for these - would have saved a small fortune the amount I've spent with them in the last 8 or 9 months.

As for free shipping to Canada - nice one - never qualified for that yet either and I'm in the same country as them lol.

Ahh Grip, they are in the UK but the funny thing is that while posting here and seeking a discount code their system signed me out and when logging back in I now get a shipping quote of L1.82 LOL. Just like all the DC discount codes that I didn't get ffs. At least it's not L11 shipping from them for the smallest of orders.

Don't know how many sets they have left in stock, but Halo now do the clear Fit Shaft Gear stems - I just ordered some of the size 3 and size 4 slim and hybrid spinners, so not sure if they have any of those left lol. Bit cheaper postage than AAA - they just need to stock up on the signature Fatum rocket flights lol
