My guide to keeping flights on stems.
excellent post. thanks. i use the harrows punch myself and swear by it. flights never come out. unfortunately i have lost the little plastic cover that fits underneath the punch.

Shell lock punch. I think I just found the solution for my problems. Looks way more solid than the usual ring through the flight. Thanks for sharing this.

I'm on the same set of plastic Shell Lock caps for the past 3 months now...never a robin hood/break, etc.. Even my cheap plastic stems have survived the whole time even with heavier darts.

Since the OP I have since bought from Pure Darts the Target Titanium slot rings and a Harrows slot punch and some of the Deflectagrip stems,,,,so far no complaints,,, great system,,,,,,, not had a flight come off ,,,,,

(Tip) Deflectagrip stems come in more sizes than the other brands and are less expensive,,,,,,Buy 1 set of each size to try with each and every set of darts you own ,,, or plan to own,,,,sort of the swiss army knife of plastic stems,,,,

I was chatting with a guy the other day (bearing in mind I play soft tip in Korea, and there is almost a darts chic attitude amongst the players, they have to have the best looking gear, irrepective of cost) and he swears by buying cheap deflectagrips, with 100 micron flights, and simply using glue to keep from flights popping out. I've never done this personally, but it struck me as a decent idea. Anyone here do the same?

Also, many apologies to the OP, meant to say, great job, really good post.

I got some beefy alu rings on ebay... 12 rings for $5 shipped. Been working great the last few weeks. A few skuffs but zero bends. Let me know if you want the link.

Here ya go! Sorry for the delay. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.vie...1440023056

They've got another auction for 2 sets for 2.99 shipped
http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.vie...1329426184

If that doesn't work, search for seller "bjph321".

These things have held up GREAT but they're NOT designed to be used as slot lock rings. I use them on my Target stems.

I'm a beginner to darts after taking it up again after briefly playing it some years back, and although I've only been playing a week I've had good success with the Target Pro Grip Vision stems in this respect. I've only had flights pop off a couple of times. Admittedly my grouping is less than spectacular but they do seem to fit tight compared to normal nylon stems/ring combinations I've had in the past.

Agreed I've been playing for around a year now on and off and have just changed with pro Vision stems and also punched flights with pigeon rings. Flights fit perfect now no more picking flights up off the floor. Especially when you have a dog who has the taste for them Tongue
