I'm not sure wether to try rings and punch or whizlocks. I'm tempted at the whizlocks due to eliminating robin hoods, I would imagine my stems to last for ages if I do that.

With a bit of super glue, your standard flights/shafts turn into a one piece shaft and flight system!

edit: only joking around.

No, you might be on to something. I might consider that. I mean, seriously. Replace flights and stems simultaneously. So what? Still, cheapest sport alive if you aren't a collector.

Reg, I appreciate this guide to fiddling bits. I think it is a sincere attempt to justify nylon and poly stems. p.s. springs don't work. I don't know about the caps and such as I was too tired of the fiddling bits to continue with them, eyesight being as such... My guide to keeping flights on a stem=aluminum, baby! +1 for ya anyway for starting the conversation.

I've been using the Slot Rings as they came on a set and love them. Got some new darts and they had the thin ring. As I started throwing them with the thin ring, a flight would pop off every now and then. Punched the flights and put Slot Rings on instead and haven't lost a flight since.

That in itself isn't a big surprise, but it got me thinking about grouping. Especially with the lighter weight of soft tips, is it better to have a flight pop off in a tight grouping than have the tip deflect due to a vise-grip bond between stem and flight when the two flights interact?

The only reason I'm tempted to go to Cosmo Fit flights is to get the spinning flight (other system's rattling puts me off), and I'd even consider a teardrop shape to help with grouping too. But again there is the interaction between flights in a tight grouping...
Dabbler and over thinker...
