Hi B2B180 ,

If you have some slightly ‘nicked’ flights laying around (and who doesn’t  Smile ) take a sharp pair of scissors and make up some different shapes to play around with.
You can even make up a template from an old flight if you find/develops a shape you like for repeatability.

May give you an idea for your next flight purchases .

Cheers

Would the Target TEN-x fit the bill?

Like the retina flights but ten-x look pretty good too.

If you're between standard and kite how about some pear shape?

I would say the 10x to or maybe look at the larger target Phil Taylor flights

possibly pears ? I found a chart one time, that gives the surface area of each type of flight, just done a quick google.

The original site I cant find (it had some good tips on setting up) but, this looks similar to their chart.

Kite and standards are at either end, while pears and slim are somewhere in the middle.

The heavier150micron kite flights behave slightly different too.

You could always turn standard flights into something similar to slims, and thinking about it. could probably trim off a bit of damaged area, to make your own shapes, or, renovate them slightly (a template might be a good idea too, as you want them all the same). Although its something Ive never done.

Personally I tend to use kites pears or standards, they seem to cover all my needs.

I would try fantails. They give more stability than pears or slims...imho.

Not sure what you mean

Rocket are a shape you can get in moulded flights like L-style

Have you tried Velos?
I find that they land flatter than standards but fly better (more stable) than kites (for me).
