I was shooting darts recently and I was asked by a local bar patron if I knew the difference between tungsten and brass or nickel silver darts. Tungsten is twice as heavy. Barrels made from tungsten will therefore be half the size, resulting in closer groupings and high scoring.
Here is an online tutorial that I found very resourceful for the beginning darter:

A noobie @ Darts, want to learn. My parents said I need a good outdoor dart board since all my shots (go anywhere and everywhere). They recommended something with horsehair ( for outdoors), maybe I got them wrong but any suggestions would help, next would be darts for a noobie like me. I guess height and weight may take a factor. I'm 5'7, at 230lb. Female, working on the weight so don't make fun...LOL
