March of time

New additions pictured above are a set of Phil Taylor World Champion 24g 90%W, these were on a special deal at A180 darts. They appear to be new-old-stock from around the millenium (copyright on the card said 2000). They do seem to be somewhat purist-like with the short plain section at the end of the barrell, but with the black/tungsten colour scheme of the world champion darts.
Next to these are John Part Hero Golden 24g 95%W. These are a superb dart with a little more grip than the John Part World Champion Golden darts due to the 'Taylor' grip and slimmer thanks to the slightly higher tungsten content. A very nice dart that may usurp the John Part Golden World Champion 23g in my affections, but still has a way to go.

Nothing much doing, the eternal search for a job continues.
I have got myself a Unicorn UniTool for changing dart points. In pictures it didn't look much more than a pop rivet gun bit in reality is a much more impressive beast. Don't ask how I know, but be careful if using it to put points in, it is possible to screw down too hard and squash the point... A bit aggressive for non-destructive point removal (leaves some impressive marks on the removed points), but quick.
I suppose the marks from the removal might constitute 'board grip' points for some people...
