Pixel grip stems: any experience/alternatives
Hi guys

Im experimenting with finger placement and looking at partial grip of the stem.

I need something to grip/reference point and saw these and then the eye watering pricetag (£15)

Does anyone have any experience  or an alternative as i find it hard to justify what could in effect buy me 100 stems on 1 set?

Thanks in advance

no experience because I don't grip anywhere near the stem ... but I saw these the other day when browsing.

£3 for 4 sets sounds a bit better, especially if you just want to try it out.

Actually these might be better as the rings start right after the thread,

Great suggestion Fire!

A couple alternatives:

Machina: https://www.unicorn-darts.com/range/dart...shaft.aspx

Winmau V-Groove: https://www.winmau.com/det/528/V-Groove_...um_Shafts/

There are also plastic ringed shafts Japanese made, and shark grip shafts but I can't recall the models at the moment.

The Unicorn Gripper CG darts also feature an ultra-light magnesium shaft that has a much wider grip than normal shafts, but I haven't seen them sold separately.

Unicorn gripper GT. I'm in the same boat as you, I literally just ordered myself some. Also a bit of bodge job ( DIY ), take a gripper flight ring, force it wider with pliers and force it down the stem to the position you like, helps grip in the same place each time.

Hi yes I use target pixel grip stems on my target Carreara c4 and on the my 9 five Quattros I admit at fifteen quid a go they are expensive but they make the dart look fantastic and I do grip my dart at the rear and they do give me more grip and confidence . I have tried tried just plan aluminium shafts but they are a bit lighter and no grip. Pixel grips seem to balance my darts out a bit more to.
If you don't use the stem in you grip I think it's a waste of money for you as they are very expensive .

Try the red dragon razor stems.
