How many punch their flights?
How many of you Nutz prefer to punch your flights?  The main benefit of this is to secure the flight, are there other benefits or drawbacks?  Thanks

Cosmo are a proper marmite kinda thing. I know plenty that love them, including myself, but I probably know more that hate them lol

I found I had many more Robin Hoods with the punched flights and rings holding them on the stems.   The point of a second or third dart would follow the flight and lodge between the flight and the ring.   I didn't have near as many damaged stems, but the rings took a pounding and often stretched out or broke.

And before anyone says my points were too sharp, I don't sharpen the points but scuff up the barrels for better grip.

I used to punch flights before going to L-Style

Personally I prefer L-Style... Cosmo is good, but I find that L-Style are higher quality. The flights for sure, but even the shafts don't break nearly as easily (carbon excluded)

Punched out and Titatium rings haven't had any problem with them. I did go to Cosmo but won't be keeping them after these flights shred like the others have.

You may have been one of the ones that helped me decide on L-Style.  I read a lot of opinions here on DNF and found people who loved Cosmo and others who had flight damage and shaft breakage issues and thought it was not a good value.  Pros and cons to all systems, and everybody has a personal preference.

I have spinning carbon L-Shafts, champagne flights and rings on the way.
