These darts are made from 90% pure tungsten material. The surface has a matt finishing for added grip and very appealing aesthetically, and also for the first time, coated in a functional chrome PVD coating for added durability. With the chrome PVD coat, these darts literally shines. If the legend insists that these are the perfect darts, we are in complete agreement with Paul. The quality of the finishing , the grip, the balance are all perfect.
