I agree. I used them for a couple of years and do think they're a decent disc especially for beginners or softer throws. Lots of utility and good uses for it. That said, I much prefer the XD for a similar shallow disc like this. If anyone's interested, I still have a nice green echostar Dart 8.5/10 that could use a loving home.

Agreed there, too. They're certainly not very friendly to poor form, especially when given a little juice, but that's exactly what should be expected from a shallow 0,0 disc.

I have gone from a - dx 150 aviar p&a (my first) putter, to a pro-d 168 maganet, to a dx 174 XD (my current fav.) --- but I'm trying a R-pro 172 Dart
but the Dart hasnt won my affection from my XD ,yet
but I do like the R-Pro plastic better than the Dx plastic

if they made a R-Pro 175 XD I would be happy

I took about a year hiatus from DG and when my cousin picked up the sport and wanted someone to play with I was in. Problem was, my old putter (wizard) had become my dogs long range exhaustion toy... since my local park only carried innova (and only carried the dart as a putter) thats what I got.

First week of light play I was hitting long range anhyser putts pretty frequently (more than I was used to at least). So I was loving the dart.

Now, 3 months into use, its gotten beat in and I rarely miss from the 10-15 foot range (which makes me very happy, and super confident in that range).

It could be all in my head, but the dart just feels right and I trust it if that makes sense. Just orded and echo star dart... very excieted.

I had a Star Dart that I used for all putts period. Sunday it fell to it's depths after I overshot a basket at Windwood church. I was money within 20' of the basket with it. I'm probably going to get a new Star Dart because it was that good, if anyone has any nice Star Darts 7-8/10ish I will give you a fair offer!

I definitely love mine. I have the R-pro and i use it for upshots and mid range putts because it just sticks and doesn't bounce away. Maybe my favorite disc in my bag.

Started off with the Dart and liked it early on, but never reached that great level of confidence with it for actual putting. Came a time when I had to look at my putting game and make some changes. Tried quite a few popular putters before settling on the MVP Anode. The Anode feels much better in my hands and my confidence level reached a new high.

But that is why they make so many discs, just have to find the one that works for you regardless of name or manufacturer. Majority of my Star Darts were inked so I didnt think I could sell them, ended up giving most of them away. Fun to hand them out when you see families with kids out playing. Think I kept 2 for myself and stashed them away.

I have an R-Pro Dart addiction. I only own two (one is fresh. too cold to go throw it. boo.), but it is hard to not buy more when I find my weight.

I love them for short approaches, but sometimes aim wrong and yell at them to turn. Which is dumb because they don't fade.

I think I am going to PIAS tonight to pick up a DX Dart if they have one in 175g. :thumbup:

Give that dx a good once over before you buy it, I have owned many darts and all of the dx's have been extremely domey and feel quite different in the hand than a typical R-pro or star. BTW I like a good flat echo star the best followed by a flat regular star but carry neither
