This is a question Cheap Tat

OneEyedMonster remindes us about the crap you can buy in pound shops: "Batteries that lasted about an hour and then died. A screwdriver with a loose handle so I couldn't turn the damn screw, and a tape measure which wasn't at all accurate."

Similarly, my neighbour bought a lawnmower from Argos that was so cheap the wheels didn't go round, it sort of skidded over the grass whilst gently back-combing it.

What's the cheapest, most useless crap you've bought?

Not cheap but definately tat.
If you find yourself at any point deciding that you want to take up the great (read lazy) sport of darts you will be wanting to find yourself some nice throwing arrows that are comfortable to throw. You may be tempted to go to one of the various high-street sports shops that sell darts and get some of the posh nickel/silver/gold plated darts that are endorsed by the likes of Phil Taylor and so on but I urge you not too. For a start they are normally about £25 for set and secondly what they say they weight on the pack will not be their actual weight, a guy I know who runs a proper darts shop got a couple of sets and weight them all up, they were supposed to be 27grams but none of the 3 from either set actually were. You can get cheaper and better quality darts from a proper dart shop, mine cost £15 and are great.

Length? Depends how big your hands are, don't want your darts too short to throw properly.

I've never seen a proper darts shop (or an improper one), where might I find one?
