The best way to transport darts is by housing them in a carrying case. A dart case will keep them safe and secure, and reduce the likelihood of your darts getting damaged. Dart cases come in all shapes and sizes, and are made with various kinds of material.
This article will give an overview of the factors to consider when choosing a dart case, and provide you with product reviews of the most popular dart cases you’ll find on the market.
Factors to Consider
The size of your dart case will depend on how many darts you intend to carry with you and if you want a case that has enough room for extra dart gear, such as spare flights, shafts, flight protectors and snap rings. There are small wallet-sized dart cases available that can fit three darts easily in your pocket. Dart cases come in varying sizes that can house 6, 9, 12 or more darts. Larger dart cases often have compartments for spare dart parts and other accessories.
If darts are not stored properly, they can get warped, cracked and damaged beyond repair. It’s important to invest in a durable case that will keep them intact. If you’re content with a soft case, be sure that it has enough padding to keep your darts safe. For extra protection, consider a hard dart case that will be virtually indestructible. Hard cases are often heavier and bulkier to transport than soft cases, but they will give you the highest degree of protection.
Assembled Versus Disassembled Darts
It’s also important to consider whether you want to store your darts assembled or disassembled. Darts are easier to store disassembled, but they will wear and tear more easily from constant assembly and disassembly. If you want to store your darts assembled, then be sure you find a case that’s compatible and secure enough to house them without breaking.
Now, it’s time to take a look at some of the dart cases you’ll find available.
