    wikipedia seems to be fairly up to date with the dart weights, at least from what I can tell. Just search for the players name, the dart type and weight is on the right-hand side of the page.
    Darts: Target Perfect Storm, 23g
    180's: 1 (About 20 years ago. LOL)

    Started playing again in Nov 11.

    Thanks for that - i'll have a look at those

    They do always seem to be towards the lover end of the 20s. I always assumed that 25/26 was a sort of standard weight for darts but it seems the average for players is about 22.

    I've always used 23g but have fluctuated between 21-26g and I agree that you can improve when you change weights but that's probably a mental thing - 'New darts syndrome'.

    Before Christmas I picked some darts up in a second hand shop for 3.99 - no idea of weight but grip felt good and to be honest i've not thrown this well consistently for ages. Perhaps I should now stick with these and not get them weighed whilst things seem to be going well

    Myself and The Power use 26g...that's where the similarity ends!

    8 people at 20g and only 3 at 21g was rather surprising to me. No surprise on 22g being the most popular tho

    14g darts are crazy light! I'm surprised he doesn't need to tether them down between legs to stop them floating away!

    Guy on our Monday night league plays with 33g. He doesn't so much as throw them as point them at the board and just lets go.
