loose stem = free spinners!
Hah!!
This is more of a FUN post Rather than SERIOUS.

So, while practicing in my basement (having fun). I oddly thought of leaving my stems like  1/16th of a turn loose.

ALlowing them to act as spinners and minimize deflections.

I tried it for a while, just to see if i noticed my darts accuracy being effected, also to see what it felt like while in throwing hand.  You can definitly notice the looseness .yet my throw was still accurate and I wasn’t bothered By the loose stems, I even tried it with the stems 1/4 unscrewed .
 
And you could really watch the darts stems/ flights turn as they grouped in they’re targets.

It was pretty fun, I put lots of spin on my throw so the loose stem cooperated a little bit as they flew.
 I DO have spinning stem tops and Harrows clicks, just bored and wanted to see what happened with standard stems,lol

I find the systems are pretty bulky and throw off balance of the setup.  The target spinners work well but I always destroyed them quickly, and i never bought enough of them.

Oh we’ll! Just sharing my fun stupid idea lol. I’m sure someone has tried this before .....lol

I thought about it after the post and thought....meh ya it is stupid..... but then......I went and threw some more darts and tried it again . it was pretty sneaky haha. I could throw my first dart with a loose stem, then the next two normal , letting them sneak by with little deflection.. . . I might just need to invest in a pile of target spinning stems lol
