There are some bargains to be had on the Unicorn site for example the Neon 1,2 and 3 are on there at £29.95 i paid £74.95 for the neon 2 about 5 month ago and online there still that price, Unicorn site say was £99.95 now £29.95.

I play with John Lowe 27g bullet darts, however won a set of 25g in one of our competitions as I wanted to try the lower weight. Didn't see an immediate improvement, so decided they were not for me and passed them on to another forum member.

Think I made a mistake and am definitely going back to try a 25g again.

Do you have a direct link for the RVB darts? Can't seem to find them but for that price I would be happy to give them a try.

That's just a link to the full steel tip section. If I put in a search for 'Barneveld' no darts costing 9,92 or cheaper (aside from brass sets) come up :oops:

Or are they sold out by now?

No. Just Scoll down the page on the link and the clearance darts are nearer the bottom. Do not search as the link is for the page offering the darts.

Some other great offers on that page.

Roughly 80% of the entries went yes for a 170 finish.

For the 20% who didn't. :WWWW:

Oh I forgot to mention, I am not bothering with the spreadsheet this time for the random draw. Reverting back to the wife choosing a random number to identify the winner, as per the first two I ran.
Ok, thanks.

I was completing my order when I saw I had to pay 20 pounds extra (taxes/shipping, I can't remember exactly) for a 5 pound set of darts, that was a bit too much for my liking :)

Looking at the Wednesday thread, and the predictions below, it would seen the consensus agree with the bookies odds having Dimitri 4/6 favourite.

Bunting 22
Dimitri 29

I won the random prize, courtesy of Sparky's wife in the 2017 UK Open Prediction Competition.

However being a moderator, and with the integrity of the forum in mind, passed the set of darts on to the 4th placed entrant in the Prediction Competition. From memory think it was Tun40 who benefited with a set of Gary Anderson darts.

Absolutely. For me whoever runs the competition, makes the rules.

Anybody has an issue, step up to the plate and put your name forward to run the next one.

Nice for Tun40, but I think you could have kept it. Assholes who complain about these kind of things will find something to whine about regardless.

I know I could have, and would have had no issue in doing so, but at that time Sparky was not a Moderator, and was doing a brilliant job in running competitions, and I did not want him being subject to any form of misplaced allegations of skullduggery.

If it had been now, and given he is both a mod and an experienced poster, I would have just thought fek him, let the accusations begin. :grin:
