Stem Length
Hi All,

I am currently tweaking my darts and im considering changing my stem length to get a better downward angle on my darts. (flight higher than barrel when entering the board)

I have received different opinions on this and was wondering what you guys think. Shorter or longer? Currently using medium nylons.

24G Red Dragon Fusion
23G Jamie Caven Phase 2

I had the same problem as you. I changed to short stems and that fixed it for me Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. it works with my throw but it could be different for you.
Size and type of flight could also have a major bearing on angle of entry. I have had some darts where using short, intermediate, and medium shafts had little affect on angle. Change the flight from a smooth standard to a textured standard and major difference. Other darts the exact opposite. Toss on a set of kite flights, whole new ball game. For the price of things buy a single pack of each length of stem, a couple of different size/style/texture flights, and experiment until you get exactly what you want. Then that is your setup, buy a few packs of the same brand of stems and flights that worked best, and you're good to go.

The shorter you go the more you will get the lift, as well as larger flights!
