This is the way it has worked out for me. (dissenting opinions encouraged.) If my second dart gets decapitated, my third is totally demoralized. I love so much about nylon and poly, but without flight mutilation and fiddling bits, they don't hold flights. I find after a while of throwing with a flight chucking plastic stem, I make a mad scramble for some delicious aluminum hold. And thus over time, my top six preferred darts (from L to R), have all acquired aluminum stems. Rotating stems DO work. I don't mind the rattle at all. No need to eject the incoming flight, the preceding flight just moves out of the way. The cons of aluminum are all blown out of proportion, IMHo. What say ye cork pounders?

The 90's called. They want their stems back.

I mutilated WAY more flights in the short time I've used aluminum stems. Just trying to fully seat the flight in the aluminum tongs would often result in the front of the flight getting squished/bent. It was like the aluminum flight holders would be too tight or too loose. Just a simple nylon stem and a metal ring solved everything.

But to each their own. If everyone used the same exact products, the dart world would be a boring place. If aluminum stems work for you, more power to you.

I like the looks of the alum stems and that's about the end of it for me. Once they get caught by a point that's it, they're done. When I play with them I have to have some pliers with me to bend them back. Too much hassle

This one may send him to church on Sunday after his tirade on the subject. But I'm with him on his dislike of aluminum stems. They have no place in my parts stash.

Fitting alloy stems to darts is like putting plastic wheel trims to a Ferrari, yes you can but who would want to.
Nylon stems and punched flights for me, no flights coming out so no blind struggles to refit

Nice Buggy. In fact my Bristows fly better with alu, looks like they are designed for alu.
may all the doubles be with you

I'm also in the minority as I regularly use aluminum stems. Have tried most other types but always seem to come back to them.
