Kind of surprised by the effort to keep flights on the shaft
I would suggest condors. I ran Cosmo's for a while but the condors seemed interesting. After trying them I dont see myself swapping.

Obviously flights coming off in flight would be a disadvantage, but popping off at the final inch from the board rather than being deflected would be an advantage.

But recently getting back into darts it seems like manufactures are making a big deal out of reducing the likelihood of the flight coming off. Was the initial advice I heard wrong or overstated?

To answer your original question. you heard it right, but it was overstated.

How do you feel that tiny extra bit of weight makes a difference over the standard plastic caps?

I didnt notice any difference at all.  I thought switching from normal flights to L Style might be tricky as they look a lot thicker and heavier, but again, I didn't notice a difference

All I can say is you must be young....lol....the more "aged" you are,the harder it is to pick up those *&^%#$ things....If my eyes were better I would just leave them on the floor and put on a new one. I have been using the punched with the Tit ring, (easy boys,just short for titanium) and have been using Cosmos spinners lately with great results. I used to use the old Dynastar setup but the rattle noise was unsettling plus using them for soft tip was hard on the stems with all the bounce outs. I have been kicking around the idea of trying feather flights but just haven't pulled the trigger on those yet. Anybody else try them? Luck & shoot well.
