Simon Whitlock delivered a thrilling World Cup victory playing his first televised Major with this latest set of darts. Designed as a combination of the best parts from all his previous models, his main prerequisite was to have a really firm grip with his notorious mid-balanced scallop that was part of his first-ever range. The mid-scallop and deep cut rings provide Simon with the exact grip and feel that he's been after and is finished in the stunning rainbow coating that the colourful character absolutely loves. The balance of the dart is something that Simon has been looking to change away from his tapered dart, with these darts feeling easier for Simon to get the exact trajectory that he requires, helping him fill the treble twenty up. The rear of the dart features a micro grip section that offers a softer feel, creating another Whitlock modern classic.
Simon Whitlock - the darting wizard who blew the roof off the Alexandra Palace in 2010 with his blockbusting high checkout finishes and devastating power scoring is a man on a mission. After mostly plying his trade in his native Australia, Simon is now fully committed to playing the full PDC tour. Great news for dart fans - who will now get to see more of this highly talented and explosive player, but not so good news for opposition players - who will no doubt soon be wishing that this brilliant darting wizard would walk up the yellow brick all the way back to the land of Oz.
