RegisterUsed them in the past during league - flight pops out and the stem is so tight can't get the flight in, messed the flight up them had to change stem and all the flights because I want them to all be the same. Then stem got loose even though I had o-rings. After all that mess it messed my rhythm up. Nooooooo more metal stems. And on bounce outs ya better take the flight off roll it on the table to check if its out of round. Any more questions on the metal demons? Big Grin

That has to be my number one reason with them coming loose too easily in a close second

I use metal stems on my M3 darts because they are not like the metal stems for the "regular" dart. I have used 2 of the three since I got them over a year ago. One broke because of a very aggressive robin hood Tongue But they have bounced on hard tile floor and wood-floor and they are still as straight as they werent used ever Smile

But on the "regular" darts, then its only my personalized nylon stems that work Smile

I actually like my flights popping out -- they get wrecked less often -- so another vote for nylon. Also, I had a robin hood jam a metal stem into the barrel and strip the barrel's threads. Ouch. Doubt that can happen with nylon.
26's so far this year: I've already lost count. :-)
