Does the color of your stems and flights really make a difference?
I personally like red or white stems and white flights. I seem to pick up the dart that has been thrown easier. I know that Gary Anderson said that he doesn't like real dark flights or stems. Of course he uses the 2 tone blue stems and I believe blue flights. And You?

That's almost my same combo. I like white stems with either red or white flights (usually plain colored R4X). My darts land flat so I need a flight shows up well against the dartboard. Darker flights tend to blend in too much.

Same with dark colored points...never been a fan because they'll sometimes screw up my concentration not knowing if the dart landed in or outside the segment.

I like using 3 different colored Amazon flights making me think as I throw that not all my darts are the same. Kinda weird. Like the Rastas concept.

I definitely believe it makes a difference. At least the flight colour.
It turns out I prefer to look at white or black flights more than any other colour. I shoot much better when using white or black. It's very weird

Since I'm 69 yrs old my eye sight though good I much prefer light colored flights and bright or white stems. Yellow flights my next choice

Yes. It matters to how I feel about the Set up. As in how Flash or stylish they look; that's all I take from it.

I like the all white approach,especially if against silver barrels Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

regardless of if it really does matter or not, it's a proven fact that placebo's work. So just this alone would mean that the answer is yes: they can matter, even if they don't :p

Definitely prefer a solid color flight. Usually a stark contrast to the colors on the board:

White
Yellow
Sky Blue
Blaze Orange

Say if some Noob wanted to know what the flights/shafts in your picture were called, what would that answer be?

Googling "Amazon flights" turned up a broad array of possibilities.

L style, can use any nylon shaft, but you punch a hole in the flight and use a cap that you insert in the punched whole, keeps flight at 90 degree angle

Sammy, I believe those are the L Style carbon shafts. Since you're in the US, you can try..

The flights actually look glossy to me...they could possibly be an R4X that have been punched with an L Style Flight punch (it punches a bullet shaped hole in the flights and you insert a cap). Plus he's using flight clips on the rear edges so I'm guessing folded flights.

A simple punch works fine too..and a lot less expensive.

I'm guessing these are the flights but not 100% sure.

I like non-pigmented nylon stems because they're the hardest to break. I like bright flights so I can find them when they fly off. What I'd really like is bright yet non-reflective flights because I set up with the dart right under my eye. But Harrows currently makes the only matte-finish flights that I know of, and their matte coating causes drag. Can't have everything, I guess.
26's so far this year: I've already lost count. :-)
