It has a number of features that sets it apart from the competition. These include 2 different grip types, locking holes, great grips, and high speed flights.

You can purchase this dart in 2 different sizes - 20g and 18g.

Barrel Material

The barrel of this Viper V-Factor is made from 90% tungsten and 10% nickel. While the quantity of tunhsten allows it to be slim but also not too brittle because it has 10% nickel which reduces the brittleness.

So, they are more durable and can be banged around more than some of the other competitive darts..

Wrapping Up The Viper V-Factor Dart Review

Overall this line is a definite "buy." The shaft is a nice feature along with the locking holes. It is slim and good quality with a sleek finish.

Overall, we like the darts, but the moderate amount of tungsten means you don't need to baby them and they should last a while.

What Others Are Saying About Viper V-Factor Darts

By John Jacobson

These darts are truly amazing! I wish they had rotating shafts (so I'm giving it 4 stars instead). But, other than that these are great and I highly recommend them.

By Adam Constantine

Very well made darts by Viper. I highly recommend these V-Factor, or even the Viper Blitz. Both are great. Been playing darts for years and these definitely fit the bill.

By Michael Phillips

I'm a beginner so I didn't really know what I was getting into, but, I love them! The first dart I bought was a tungsten 20g dart. I was happy with that but then I broke them and got these Viper V-Factor darts to replace them. Loving them every second of the day!
