Thanks Chris, its a neat looking and stylish stem, the colours stand out nice on the black but its all about how well they last I guess Smile

I got the Red & Black ones, put them on my new Wolframs they look really sharp, if they last longer then normal supergrips i'll be happy not that the regular ones dont last for me

Cool Smile

Do you think that common nylon stem would break that easily too if you would just drop it on the floor? I somehow don't think there is any advantage over common nylons. The carbon stems may be more durable than the proplast ones but I don't think that something can beat the common solid colour  nylons.

Thanks! I am not sure really, as sometimes its about the angle of impact etc, would be good if I had one of those machines they use to test the strength/breaking point of objects but without that I am not sure how to do a completely fair test.

No worries glad you liked it Smile

Thanks Chris, I think its closer to matt but its kind of inbetween, not too shiny and not to dull Smile

Thanks Jim, good to hear that.  They do seem to be lasting so far under normal playing so I am hopeful they are a little more durable.  Is your floor hard or carpeted?

I have used them on all flooring types as I use them during league nights as well. Have had a couple of hard floor bounce outs but carpeted mainly.

I'm either very lucky or these are very decent stems.

Much better than the Target Carbon top, broke one of those on its first use with a robin hood, put a new one on and then next throw bounce out, snapped at the thread, and not used again.

Jim

Sounds good so far then Smile

I've been using them since they came out and they are a great stem. Stronger for sure than Supergrip poly-carbonate but in all honesty I can't say they are stronger than nylons.

I can have a set of nylon stems for 6 months or more and generally replace them for cosmetic reasons rather than because they are damaged. I see the carbons being the same so for me the value is fine, but it would be interesting to see how a stem-mangler gets on with them.

Thanks for the review.

I was looking at getting a few sets when I was placing an order at Darts Corner yesterday, but when I can get 5 sets of polycarbonates for £4 and just replace broken stems when they very rarely happen, I couldn't really justify the price of the carbons.

They do look good though.

I have a few sets, they're pretty decent, certainly stronger than the RD Carbon Crossfire stems I got about 2 days use out of a couple of years back!

There's not really much need to use them aside from their aesthetic value, they do look nice when you've got the coloured rings on, but without the rings I don't particularly notice the writing on them.

I'd definitely recommend buying a lot of spare rings in your preferred colour, as they seem especially brittle and prone to splitting.

Thanks for the feedback, seems like they are lasting people quite well so far then Smile

Cheers! Guess it all depends on how well they last and if it bothers they individual about buying 1 set or a few sets, probably more down to personal choice in the end I think Smile

Anyone else using these shafts?  Waiting for mine to be delivered.  I've had bad luck with the "regular" SuperGrips - several have broken off at the barrel (they seem rather brittle).  Granted, I have hardwood floors, so that doesn't help when they fall.  Hoping the carbon stems can hold up a bit better.  Will post an update down the road.

I've posted in here previously but an update... My set of Supergrip Carbons are still in perfect condition after 2+ months of almost daily throwing.

Like you I found the Supergrip poly-carbonate stems brittle (all poly-carbonates in fact) but these have been perfect for me.  I play on uncovered wooden floors for the most part so any bounce outs have a hard landing.

Has anyone have an opinion on how these compare to Laro carbon stems? Laro carbon last me about 6 - 8 months but @ 18$ a set looking for something a bit cheaper tyia

Good stem, but had a tang break above the slot lock ring on a punched setup.  With regular nylon or even polycarbonate, I find tangs tend to break below the ring on a robin hood.  And the slot lock ring holds them together like a splint.  Until the whole flight assembly falls off. Rolleyes

Outside of looks, don't see a big advantage over solid colour nylon.

I've been using these for going on a month now and have to agree they look good but no other advantage than that. But I like the looks a lot.
