Front heavy torpedo barrel designed with a straight barrel in mind.
Shunsuke Sagara's third signature model.
While keeping the attributes from the Type 2, this model's taper angle was decreased to closely resemble a straight barrel. The barrel is made up of only ring cuts and the main gripping point consists of wide but shallow ring cuts. The gripping area provides sufficient grip but is not overly aggressive.
The biggest feature of this barrel is the shape of the barrel where the front is straight but tapers are added as it reaches the main gripping point. With the taper and the ring cuts, this allows the power to transfer directly onto the darts as it is thrown.
Despite the barrel made up of mostly simple looking cuts, there are many considerations put into the designs of the barrel. For example, ring cuts were rounded off to make the cut smoother to assist the grip at the front of the barrel.
