I posted on here a couple of weeks ago about snapping a storm point in my purists. Anyway, today I had a set of Barneveld hero darts delivered. Started practicing with them and loved them straight away and was literally hitting everything I went for. Anyway, as with all barney darts they have rings in the points which are of no use to me as I don't rest any fingers on the point.
I was on for my first max with them and was just thinking about how I was definitely going to use them for my game this week. Anyway I wired the last dart and the point snapped at the highest ring on the point. I couldnt believe it.
There wasn't enough point protruding from the barrel to put it in my rivet gun to pull the point so I was gutted. Luckily after a lot of trying I managed to use brute force and remove the point with some pliers.
Needless to say they now have plain steel points in. Hopefully this sort of thing doesn't come in threes!!!
