We have to pay our respects to the German Giant Gabriel Clemens for how much of an important figure he has been in the growth of darts in Germany. It’s so nice to see his relationship with Target grow and his Player dart range expand and improve. We now have the Gabriel Clemens Black Darts – the black coated version of his 80% dart range.
Gabriel Clemens Black Darts | Product Review
What's in the video?
Jen Mounts gives you an in-depth review of the Gabriel Clemens Black Darts by Target (80% Tungsten). She covers several key features like overall manufacturing, design and grip intensity. Let’s break down each aspect and elaborate a little:
–Endorsed by Gabriel Clemens
–Features Black Performance Coating Delivering Enhanced Grip.
The German Giant’s Black 80% Gen 1 darts range feature a nice long straight barrel with black performance coating. Notice the 3 colors of the flag of Germany with a black coated base then red alternation red and gold stripes in the radial grooves.
For the first time ever, Target has now fitted an 80% dart with the swiss point system. The Gabriel Clemens Black Darts (steel tip version) come with Smooth Black Swiss Points.
If you’re looking for more information on Swiss Point technology click the following to read our blog here – Steel Tip Game Changer: Target Swiss Point.
The Gabriel Clemens Black Darts come in an 80% Tungsten steel tip and soft tip version with multiple barrel weights for each version.
The Steel Tip and Soft Tip versions are virtually the same, except as usual the soft tip has to accommodate it’s taper to meet the 2ba soft tip. Starting with the back half, you’ve got a nice reverse cut section that always offers more bite to the grip when you glide downward then it ends with a smooth notch. Then the front half consists of straight ring cuts showing off the German flag colors black, red and gold then finishes with a smooth taper on the nose.
We rate the grip intensity of the back half of the Gabriel Clemens Black Darts a 3 out of 5.
We rate the grip intensity of the front half a 2 out of 5.
Gabriel has a 4 finger grip that is wide spread so he needs the extra length here. Looks like he rests his ring finger under the nose, has a pressure point over the center with his middle finger, the forefinger is hidden against the side and his thumb rests along the reverse cut in back. Finally, he of course shoots with the very classy – pinky up.
