I am in the process of having a new batch of Bronze Tuna darts made from a mold that I have.

These are the "long Darts" 5- 1/4 inches vs the 4-1/2 inch regular darts.

If there is any interest here I can add to my order from the foundry.

Cost: Normally I sell them for $10, the foundry indicated that their pricing may go up a few dollars and I am waiting to hear back from them.

Respond here or shoot me a message

Also, if anyone works at or owns a foundry reach out to me.

The longs just give you a bigger area dispersing the weight of the fish. When the dart goes in the fish, and toggles inside the hole, if distributes the weight over a slightly larger dart.

Almost all of the harpoon guys that I know use the long Darts, it is a personal preference, we use the long darts on our boat, so that is what I make.

General question: Is it better to sharpen the lead point or not?
