The quickest and simplest answer to that question is no. However, nothing is quite that simple. The real answer to that question is yes and no.
If you are looking to improve your dart game, you have probably thought about buying darts like the ones the professionals use. After all, they are some of the best in the world. Of course, the obvious argument here is “it isn’t the dart that makes the player good, it’s the skill.” And that isn’t wrong. But, I would also argue that a good dart will make a great player even better.
By now you may be a little confused and still wondering whether expensive darts will make you a better player or not, so let me explain what I mean by yes and no. Whether you are brand new to the sport or you’ve been playing for 20 years, going out and getting the so called best darts on the market, just because they are more expensive sill not make you a better player.
If you are a beginner, the best darts to buy to become a better player is definitely the ones recommended by Get Games Go on their website. However, if you have been playing for years and you have some skills but you feel like you are as good as you can get, or you feel like you are stuck, getting new darts may make you an even better player. Chances are, when you started you did not think about the weight, what it was made from, how it was weighted, or the flight, because in the beginning it really doesn’t matter. But once you have some experience, these are small things that you can play with to improve your game.
If you hold your dart at the front, you may want to try a front weighted dart. The opposite is also true if you hold it at the back of the barrel. If you have smooth hands, try a dart with a smoot grip; if you have rough hands, try one with a rougher grip. Test out a couple of different flights. You can also change the material, but this is where it starts getting a little pricier the fancier you get.
So no, a more expensive dart will not magically give you skills to make you a better player. But getting a dart that is just right for you, will improve your game.
