Good luck Matthew Edgar! Matthew was here before Loxley was even a twinkle in my eye and has had a major hand in establishing Loxley as a serious darts brand. The Edgar influence cannot be underestimated. But the time is nigh to go our separate ways. Good luck, good friend!

Darts Review Channel Review:


matthew edgar darts loxley


The arrows of choice, for a Prime Time player. Today I take an in-depth look at the new

Matthew Edgar darts, from Loxley. Utilising two popular styles of grip, as well as stylish painted
groves, these darts have every reason to become an instant classic.

Moulded to the exact specifications required for Matthew Edgar, Zachary Thornton, along with
the Loxley design team, have created a dart that suits Matthew perfectly – as well as an
extremely wide range of amateur and semi-professional players alike! With a subtle, thinly
grooved ring grip at the rear, coupled with a more deeply cut dual-ring grip towards the front, the
darts utilise both indistinct and aggressive cuts, resulting in a near universally usable dart –
perhaps the darts of choice for a future PDC title holder?

The darts are currently available in both Matthew’s match-weight, 21g, as well as his former
match-weight, 23g. Both barrel weights are produced from a 90% tungsten billet, providing the
perfect balance of density and durability. This ensures the darts are as thin as possible to
increase your scoring, but resilient enough that with darts clattering into each other in the treble
bed, the grip stays true and will not begin to chip-away or dull, as seen on lower grade tungsten
barrels. Both weights are 50.7mm in length, with the 21g measuring in at 6.1mm in width,
compared to the 23g, which measure at 6.36mm.

The darts arrive in a plastic outer casing, with the Loxley graphics on the front, detailing both the
dart, and the player they were made for. The graphics employ the use of Matthew’s preferred
colours of pink and blue, as seen on his shirts, flights and barrels, allowing the consistent theme
to prevail from product to product. On the rear of the casing, more graphics have been added,
with the logo from Matthew’s YouTube channel, ‘EdgarTV’, in centre view.

Inside the packaging is a simple black darts case, designed to lock the darts in while
transported in order to prevent darts from coming loose. The darts come in a standard black
point protector within the case, and come equipped with a set of Loxley intermediate nylon
stems. The case further contains a set of standard Matthew Edgar dart flights, with one flight
being ready fitted to the stem of the centre dart. While aesthetically pleasing, this can cause the
issue of the flight becoming distorted, as the outer plastic casing presses down on the
assembled flight, meaning that for the duration of transport, the flight is slightly bent out of
shape, which can lead to the dart flying slightly off course if not properly straightened out. The
darts come ready fitted with a set of 32mm silver points, which, while enhancing the look of the
dart, can lead to some darts falling out of the board as the smooth points simply cannot grasp
the fibres in the board. For this, you may need to rough the points up with sandpaper regularly,
to ensure every dart stays firmly lodged in the board.

As a natural rear gripper, I found myself wishing I could flip the dart around, as you can with soft
tip darts. I’ve always preferred an aggressive grip, and so for me, the front grip of the dart
seemed perfect! While the rear grip was noticeable, I found darts had a tendency to slip from my
fingers when propelling from the rear, though this was a rare occurrence. Holding from the front,
I found I had a lot more control over the dart, with the front grip offering a high level of both grip
and comfort; with some darts, a high level of grip can feel as if they’re shredding your fingers,
but I found that with these, I never felt any discomfort.

I found that visually, these darts were unbelievable! The two grip styles both contrast and
complement each other simultaneously, with the more refined rear grip enhancing the feel of the
front grip when switching over, while the rear grip offers a unique level of control, thanks to the
thinner grooves helping the dart to seem thicker to hold, and thus easier to manipulate in your

fingers. The darts feature painted, rather than coated groves as I initially thought. The rear
groves are painted blue and white, while the front grip has been painted a unique metallic pink –
something I’ve never seen on a dart before! The groves inside the dual-ring grip feature a very
fine strip of black paint, which I feel helps the front of the dart to blend in seamlessly with the
black segment of the 20 bed, allowing you to stay focused on your intended target. After
speaking to co-designer Zachary, I discovered the front section had been hand-painted rather
than through a machine, presenting the dedication and precision that the team at Loxley
displays in ensuring every product they sell is in perfect condition.

After experimenting with different styles of throw and grip, as well as stem and flight
combinations, I found that by holding the front and using a similar setup to Matthew himself, with
shorter stems and a set of slim flights, I was able to stack the darts in similar fashion to how Phil
Taylor used to stack his darts during his early days with Unicorn, while still using thinner barrels
not too dissimilar from the Loxley darts I’m reviewing. By throwing from the front (an unnatural
position for me), I found myself throwing the dart harder, and so by using the slimmer flights, I
had more control over the dart, thanks to the smaller surface area in comparison to the supplied
standard shape flights. By using shorter stems, I managed to shift the centre of balance further
forward towards where I was throwing, which again allowed me further control, and helped to
alleviate any unnatural feeling with the rear of the dart beginning to pull down as I prepared to
release. I also found that the preferred setup of Matthew’s rival and friend, Glen Durrant, worked
very well, with the pear flights slowing the dart down in the air, heightening my control over
where the dart was thrown.

Final Thoughts:

Appearance: 10/10 – Faultless. With the striking use of painted groves, Loxley has created, in
my opinion, one of the best looking darts on the market to date. In Matthew’s words, they “are
quite a sexy looking dart”, and combined with the vibrant Matthew Edgar flights, as well as the
recently reviewed Matthew Edgar dart shirts, Matthew has established himself as a true
idiosyncratic character within darts, and these barrels define both him, and his character on and
off the oche.

Balance: 8/10 – I felt these darts had a very slight front weight while throwing, which helped in
more ways than one. While throwing from my natural position (from the rear of the dart), the
front weight helped my darts sit high in the board – the perfect angle for me. When throwing from
the front, coupled with the shorter stems, I found I had more control over the dart, as I was
throwing directly on the centre of balance. While for me, the balance worked perfectly, the slight
front weight could cause problems for those who throw from the rear while using a shorter stem,
and so some tinkering with equipment may be necessary to ensure you get the best results
using these darts.

Grip: 8/10 – The front grip had a pleasant, yet aggressive grip that for me, was perfect. The
raised dual-ring grip felt sharp and precise, offering a high level of control when I needed it,
while allowing for a smooth and consistent release. The rear grip felt very smooth, likening it to

the nano-grip utilised on the Target Stephen Bunting darts. While noticeable, I felt darts begin to
slip from my grasp while throwing from the rear, and so if like me, you prefer a high level of grip
from the rear of the dart, these may not be the best choice for you.

Quality: 9/10 – As with my review of the Loxley Robin darts, the only let down for me was the
centre flight in the packaging, and the way it had been compressed during transport, resulting in
distortion when opened. In terms of the darts themselves, I couldn’t find a fault. Every cut of the
intricate front grip had been manufactured to perfection, resulting in a consistent feel when
holding the dart. The painted groves showed no signs of overlapping, with the care and
precision clear to see from the Loxley team.

Value for Money: 7/10 – The darts are available for £54.95 including tax, direct from the Loxley
website. While expensive in comparison to some darts on the market today, for a player
branded dart with two contrasting styles of grip, these fit right in. While I personally feel that the
darts would be best priced around £40-£45, for a dart used by the ‘Prime Time’ player himself,
Matthew Edgar, it’s a price worth paying. For quality and appearance, you’d be hard pushed to
find a dart that can beat them – they’ll certainly turn heads wherever you throw them!
Thank you again to Loxley for sending these amazing darts out, I really enjoyed taking an in-
depth look into the darts used by PDC professional Matthew Edgar, and discovering just what
he required from his barrels in order to achieve as much as he can in the game – I can’t wait to
see what’s next for him! Best of luck to Matthew in the upcoming PDC Winter Series! Thank you
again to Zachary Thornton for his input into the design of the darts, and congratulations to both
him and the design team at Loxley for the successful creation and release of these works of art!

EdgarTV shirt pink

I’m always up for learning something new, or trying something out of the ordinary. For me, this
review is just that – for the first time, I’ll be reviewing dart shirts! I’ll be taking a closer look at
both of the shirts designed and manufactured by Loxley darts for their ‘Prime Time’ player,
Matthew Edgar, who wears the shirts on the PDC Pro Tour, as well as in any other events he
qualifies for, such as any European Tour events, or major PDC televised events.

Both shirts feature an identical design, utilising bold, vibrant colours – bright blue, deep pink and
white; Matthew changes the primary colour of the shirt on a regular basis, bringing multiple
versions to tournaments. The top half of the shirt, from the front, is completely plain, with space
for Matthew’s three sponsorship patches – Loxley Darts, All Things Darts, and Filta
Environmental. Progressing down to the bottom half of the shirt, stripes of the opposite colour
have been added, as well as white sections featuring ‘Edgar TV’, promoting Matthews
increasingly popular YouTube Channel.

As well as the stripes at the bottom of the shirt, the collar is also of the opposite colour as the
main body of the shirt, which helps it to stand out, and drastically increases the look of the shirt.
For me, I feel that visually the collar is the most important part of the shirt; the blue/pink collar
standing out against the pink/blue body looks stunning, and gives it a sense of completion and
professionalism – without it, the shirt would simply look unfinished.

As for the sleeves, they too feature stripes of the opposite colour, giving the effect, to me, of a
freshly squeezed out tube of toothpaste. The pink, white and blue sleeves compliment the shirt
well, with the top colour flowing directly from the colour on the upper body section of the shirt,
with the other two colours cutting in from the seam of the sleeve. On the left hand sleeve, they
feature another sponsorship patch, this time for This patch has been
strategically placed to be in shot of the cameras while Matt is walking to the board on both
streaming and televised boards, as seen in the (low resolution – sorry!) below screenshot from
his match at the PDC Summer Series against Kai-Fan Leung.

Interesting, the shirts do not feature a front pocket as so frequently seen on modern and classic
darts shirts. As well as this, Matthew opted for the shirts to be zipped, rather than buttoned at
the top. This is simply due to Matthew’s personal preference, preferring the feel and style
compared to the alternatives. Interestingly, while Matthew never had a pocket on his older shirt,
he did used to have a button up shirt, rather than a zipped shirt. This change is due to Matthew
preferring to have more control over how the collar rests on his neck, adjusting the feel to
ensure maximum comfort in the heat and stress of a competitive match.

On the back of the shirt, the same colour/stripes theme is kept up, keeping consistent with the
style on the front of the shirt. At the top of the shirt is Matthew’s nickname ‘Prime Time’, in bold,
black writing with a subtle white outline. This white outline helps the text to stand out against the
bold pink/blue of the shirt, keeping it in focus. The centre of the shirt shows off the logo used by
Matthew for his YouTube channel, EdgarTV. The retro style television set, showing static with
‘Edgar TV’ overlaid is something unique to Matthew. Many players elect for simple wording, or a
simplistic logo on the rear of the shirt, such as Michael van Gerwen, with his ‘MvG’ logo, or Gary
Anderson, with his name in the centre of his shirt, along with a star to indicate his world titles.
Under the television set there features 5 stars, in a bright yellow aimed to stand out against the
pink/blue of the shirt. While no real meaning behind the stars, this is something Matthew wanted
to keep consistent with his previous shirts, taking parts from what he had previously to create
the perfect shirt for him.

In terms of the feel of the shirt, they feel very light and thin, perfect for when you’re in the middle
of a match and want to remain cool under pressure. The shirts are made from 100% polyester,
the market standard for dart shirts. When washed, polyester proves resistant to chemicals used
to clean clothes, meaning the shirt itself will be clean, yet the dyes used to colour the shirt will
not fade. Simply put, the shirt will look idental new, as it does after 100 washes. As well as this,

polyester is an extremely durable material, meaning it is both resistant to stretching, as well as
wrinkling and creasing. Due to the fibres used within the shirt, polyester proves to be quick
drying, perfect for those who have a tendency to sweat during matches and competitions. While
the contingency is there for those who are prone to sweating, the shirt is naturally very
lightweight, helping to keep you cool when you need it most.

While using this shirt, I found it offered no resistance to me while playing, with the shoulders not
feeling restrictive as is sometimes the case with dart shirts. The thinner material kept me cool
and comfortable, and reminded me more of Harrows style shirts, as opposed to thicker Target
Coolplay/One80 shirts, which felt heavier in comparison. The collar didn’t feel coarse against my
skin, yet I found it was prone to collapsing. Providing some discomfort and requiring me to reset
the collar regularly while practicing. As the text, logos and sponsorship patches are part of the
shirt, as opposed to a transfer or sewn on, it provides a greater level of comfort than shirts that
utilise 3-dimensional logo, such as Target or One80, in which they sew on their logo, which can
cause discomfort on the chest of the user, feeling the threading through the shirt.

Final Thoughts:

Appearance: 9/10 – For any fan of Matthew Edgar, or his YouTube channel ‘EdgarTV’, these are
a must have. With bright, vibrant colours, you’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd as the
‘Prime Time’ player himself does on the PDC professional circuit. While the back of the shirt
seems a little crowded, the overall design was nailed to perfection by Matthew and the Loxley
design team, resulting in one of the most stylish shirts ever seen in professional darts, the likes
of which we may never see again… until Matthew deems it fit for a new design, that is!

Feel: 9/10 – The only reason these didn’t get a perfect score from me was because of the collar
– I found it to fold over slightly while practicing, which caused me to stop to readjust a few times.
Excluding that, the shirt itself is simply a 10/10. The lightweight material felt comfortable to wear,
with no resistance to me while playing – a definite positive in an age of companies seemingly
opting for thicker and heavier shirts,

Quality: 9/10 – This is the same argument for me as in the ‘Feel’ section. Excluding the collar, for
me these shirts were of perfect quality… I couldn’t find a fault. There were no loose threads
anywhere on the shirt, no discolouration of the dyes used to colour the shirt, and no creases or
folds anywhere along the shirt. Once washed, the shirts were as good as new, with the dyes
holding up as intended. Simply, perfection.

Value for Money: 8/10 – While more expensive than a standard shirt designed for personal use,
for a player replica shirt, they are well priced in accordance with the current market. For £37.95,
you’ll get one of the best looking shirts in the game, endorsed by the ‘Prime Time’ player
himself, Matthew Edgar… what more could you ask for? The shirt to be signed, I hear you
say..? Well, for just £7 extra, you can have exactly that! For £44.95, Matthew himself will hand
sign the shirt – a perfect collectors item for any member of the ‘Edgar Nation’!

Thank you to Loxley for sending these shirts out – something I’ve never had the pleasure of
reviewing before! Definitely one of the best looking shirts in professional darts at the moment, I
for one can’t wait to see what’s next for Matthew while wearing these shirts! On the subject of
Matthew, a review of his darts, as well as his player profile will be coming soon, so stay tuned!
