Mission Quadrant M1 22 gram Steel Tip Darts - Quad GripSaturday, November 27th, 2021 - The Darts Collector
Mission Darts have been one of the most creative dart companies in the market for a few years now.
They have released a number of ‘out there’ grip designs with varying levels of acceptance in general.
The Quadrant range of darts features what Mission calls the Quad Grip. The grip is achieved by machining radial grooves around the barrel and linear groove along the barrels. Small, square areas along the length of the barrel about 1mm x 1mm, the edges of each of the square areas, is not sharp enough to cut, but provides an edge that allows the skin on your fingers to ‘catch’ and grip on every edge they come in contact with. I found it a really strange, almost unnerving sensation. The grip is really aggressive in its feel and had me second guessing my total grip on these barrels.
This is a set I would normally hold as a front gripper, the problem with that is the front end is a bull nose affair that is as smooth as glass until it meets the Quad Grip.
The first 13mm of the barrel is smooth and sleek; the next 25mm is Quad Grip the last 10mm smooth again.
So on the M1 there is a defined grip profile, and unfortunately for me, it was all or nothing.
Having a grip that requires use of my thumb, index and middle fingers (and having fat fingers) meant I was overlapping from Smooth barrel to Quad Grip. For me it was definitely distracting to say the least. The other issue that I had was the release. No matter where I held the dart and how much I focused on what I was doing, it felt as though the darts were tacked to my fingers and I developed an annoying flick when I threw the darts. This resulted in the darts flying with a side to side motion and missing the points I was aiming for by a mile.
In fairness, I have thrown the Mission Quadrant M2 in 24g with more success but, in the long term could not adapt or get used to the Quad Grip. The aggressive grip and my soft fingers made for a rather unpleasant experience and a sensation on my fingers that I just couldn’t deal with, it was way too distracting both at the Oche and between shots.
I’m not a professional class player, but I love playing the game. I just didn’t love these at all.
Not for me!
