Two things have got me interested in this subject;
1.  I have trouble getting flights back in once they fly off.  Advancing age, poor eyesight.
2.  In flight school, I time how long it takes me to complete the A1 drill .... and due to item #1, I spend 3 or 4 minutes chasing down flights and trying to reinsert them.

I'm using pro grip stems and Vision flights and they rarely pop off.

I think in the end it is just a thing of Personal like or dislike.

Do the pros use it?

RegisterI use either punched flights with plastic stems or power shafts.

Slot lock rings prevent stems being destroyed. You can Robin Hood a polycarbonate stem without breaking the tangs. Those little rings have saved me about 10 stems in very little time.

Drawbacks? Some bounceouts/ Robin hoods in the rings.
Throwing darts since July 2018.

Winmau Vanquish 25g, short clear Supergrip stems, Ti slotlocks, clear DSX kite flights.
Winmau Navigator 3 23g, Supergrips short clear/blue, Harrows Retina kite grey.
Winmau Testament 26g, Phil Taylor Power shafts Gen4, Harrows Retina kite grey.
Winmau Blade 5

Mid to rear gripper.
