Never really used them, think the extra weight at the rear end of the dart will cause my darts rear to drop even lower. Besides this i like to check my flights after each turn, makes me feel in contol.

I don't think they do much to protect the flights. I use them to keep the flights square, but with my 64+ eyes, I'm starting to think they are a bigger pain in the butt than they are worth.
If you know what I'm doing, don't tell me .... I find bliss in my confusion.

I’ve got some flight protectors, they came with my Daytona’s, don’t actually use them, never felt the need to try, I rarely put a point through a flight and they’re relatively cheap to replace anyway. To be honest, the whole top edge of my flights get damaged from my Daytona barrels hitting them.

They may or may not keep them straighter plus it's not to hard to look down and fan them out if not, they also might keep your center from spliting but they will just make the edge rip easier not a fan of them lol

I used to think that they were important because they kept the flights straighter, but anymore, I don't think they are worth the time and effort ( for these old eyes ) to bother with.
Some of my darts still have them, but as I change out flights, I'm not going to bother with them anymore.

Not really a question, I guess, just my personal observation.

Merged with existing thread. Now you can vote too - lol

Never have tried them, I find the whole flight gets damaged from the points and barrels and not so much the center.
Did use the ‘fit’ flight system for a while (which ideally have built in flight protector) but went back to regular stems and flights.
May give them a try yet, and possibly have to re-vote.

I use them, mostly for the square, but don't get chaffed if one goes missing.
