Phil asked Target to design this limited edition product to celebrate his last ever World Darts Championship.

Machined from an ultra-dense 95% Tungsten billet, the front and middle of the barrel is coated in a stunning Blush Gold PVD Titanium Nitride coating, which beautifully contrasts with the hand sandblasted Black Titanium Nitride coating on the rear.
