Just tried and the screw thread is too long on my gen 2 tops to fully screw into the gen 1s (mine are short stems)

Thanks blacko for your quick reply!
-- Bummer, I already ordered them. But still I have hope, since I use intermediate stems-- maybe there is more space to mount the screw

If the thread size is the same for the Gen 1 and Gen 2 tops and the issue is the length of the thread on the Gen 2's, you can always file it down. That being said, the Gen 2 tops are designed to squeeze together as they are tightened into the Gen 2 base. They won't do that in the Gen 1 base and won't hold the dart as securely.

RegisterI have never truly felt this effect. When I put the flight in the tops, they fit tightly, and then when screwing them in they seem to be the same. Is there any way to actually see this pinching effect?

RegisterOn some product photos one can see that the tops are inserted into the stem quite deeply, so for me it sounds plausible. I just cannot find any example right now ;D
I'll just have to drink another cup of tea and wait for the batch getting delivered.. I'll post back asap.

RegisterThe screwing itself does not do a lot I think. Maybe the bottom of the pinch part squeezed at the entrance of the shaft.. Or something.

RegisterI can usually feel it more when I try and remove flights - if I loosen the tops a little the flights slide out easier.

Thanks Rod Dogg, your pic just makes it clear to me, there is almost no chance screwing in the gen ≥2 tops into a gen1 stem. I will try it anyway when the 2nd gen tops arrive, just to be sure, but given the first gen stems I will have to stick with the respective tops. Thx again for your help!

Are Gen2 like the Phase 2 guys?

RegisterNo. The Gen 2s are the Target 95 Taylor ones. The phase 2s are one of his old Unicorn darts.
