Yes - it was one of the first questions I asked about them - does a normal conversion point fit?? and the answer is yes! :D

Great news, would like a shorter barrel. 6.5mm diameter. Let us know when they are on sale as it would be nice to have 2 sets that match.

:like: Yeah... I have be dreaming of those. I also thought how to machine the original ones to soft-darts without affecting the balance :D I am quite good with my Harrows Buzz at the moment, but ill give the elites a try for sure. Is this the only design or differ the 20g and 18g ones?

Yippie! Soft-dart elites!! :vader:

They look nice, ive got some Target ones with a section of grip similar to these but the elites look better.

Just out of interest what are the tips like on the elites?, ive tried unicorn and target ones but both bend to easy.I might get some red dragon ones.

I have been recommended to use EVO tips. They are good tips, but they break quite fast if you hit the board at a bad angle or when they bounce out and hit the floor.

have not found the "perfect" points yet.

I have never played soft tip darts. Is it worth trying?

Lippoint are the only tips I use, rarely get any breaks.
