Shot Darts

Why I hate metal stems and like nylon
1. Number one reason is they bend easily.
2. They become loose too easy
3. To keep tight buy little o rings (hassle)
4. Expensive ones you can bend back but usually not straight.
5. Break off in barrel you got problems.


Nylon,
1. cheap
2. wears very good
3. don't need O rings
4. stays straight better
5. If break in barrel easier to remove.

metal stems get out of round real easy and you have to keep tightening them up even with o-rings- too much of a hassle for me.

Just the fact they bend easily and them damned 'prongs' close up meaning you have to start trying to persuade them open again with a dart point to get the flights back in.

Number of times I have stabbed me hand doing that - no, alloys the devils work.

Nylons for me Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Agreed.

There seems to be an emphasis on weight, balance, etc etc but people still use aluminum.
Once they bend they are rubbish.
Rarely break stems, even less so since using Cosmo, but I'm happy to replace them as often as I need too knowing my darts will be straight!

Used them in the past during league - flight pops out and the stem is so tight can't get the flight in, messed the flight up them had to change stem and all the flights because I want them to all be the same. Then stem got loose even though I had o-rings. After all that mess it messed my rhythm up. Nooooooo more metal stems. And on bounce outs ya better take the flight off roll it on the table to check if its out of round. Any more questions on the metal demons? Guests cannot see images in the messages.
