Starting with the grip, taper was applied just behind the balance point of the barrel. By using the taper behind the balance point to throw, it allows for a smooth transfer of energy that will propel the 22.5g weighted dart straight towards the target.
Additionally, the cubic cut made up of ring cuts and 20 lines of vertical cut will play a key role that will yield a stable and consistent release by preventing the dart from slipping when using the taper to release the dart.
With the center indent, one can place the index finger at the indent to ensure there’s a consistent grip every time. As for the shallow indent at the front of the barrel, it was designed to fit one’s third finger to provide a stable feel to the dart when gripped.
The barrel, with its heavy weight was designed to provide for a strong powerful throw.
