Unicorn Gripper 3 spring to my mind. It didn't hold as tight as Pro Grips, however I liked the almost smooth transition. And it definitely held better than the common flights usually sit on these Grippers 3 shafts. In the end though, the shafts that I used to use the most with Robsons were Target Pro Grip spinners.
BTW, the black and green flights were tighter than the other ones that I had - white, blue, pink. The black and green didn't go fully at the stem.

I've only used them on Pro Grips & Unicorn Mirage Clears, I really like them on the clear shafts, especially when you get them cleaned up and get all the silly text off the stems!
I have found they work well with a number of different shafts, except aluminum, because no one should be using those bendy things Smile
Robsons are one of my favorite flights. I wish they had some decent designs.

I quite like their basic look, takes out the hours/money spent trying to colour match!

Printing on molded flights is expensive. The only option really is pad printing which really limits what you can do.

I really like the look of the Jose Perales flights - my finger is hovering over the Buy Now button Smile
I put some Robson flights on extra short winmau prism stems, over the weekend, seemed to fit snugly and pushed down Mickey all the way, only had 2 pop off in about 2 hours if playing
I have used Robson flights with various Harrows, Winmau, Designa and One80 stems. The best fit was with One80 Vice stems: https://www.dartscorner.co.uk/index.php?..._1148_2382

The narrow top of the Vice stems makes the fit almost perfect... after you have removed the ring..

Those Perales flights do look good. 
I understand it must be tricky to print on molded flights,  but I'm not worried about paying top dollar, if it works and it looks nice I will buy it.

Just discovered last night that the Robson text also comes off nicely with nail varnish remover, the white Astras look so pretty now!

It's the Darts Clearance eBay shop. Most of darts that they offer are just prototypes and once they're sold out it's likely they won't be made again. At least some of their models are done in smaller numbers while some other models are offerred repeatedly. Darts Clearance is a highly recommended shop here on the Nutz. BTW, I didn't know these Pentathlons were available at Darts Corner.
