Graphite has a higher specific tensile strength than steel. When combined with a low weight to volume ratio, this makes an ideal combination of lightness and strength. As a result of this, Graphite has been used in many sporting applications including: golf clubs, fishing rods, tennis rackets and snooker cues. The Carbon Plus shaft, which features a super light graphite rod, weighs in at a mere 1.0 grams. This amazing darts industry innovation gives the player an unbeatable winning edge.
