L style flight life
I was wondering how long your L style flights last you.  I have been getting about a month out of mine, I have been tearing a few by the flight protector part of the flight.  This is my third month of using the L-style system, still on the original stems and caps, but third set of flights (teardrops).  I don't know if it's the teardrop shape, as my dad uses standards and he is still on his first set after three months.  I'm using 21g Priestley's which I know have the lip on the bottom of the barrel.  I recently tried tridents for the first time, which seemed to help the marks on the flights, but I tore the tridents up in about 2-3 days.  How long should tridents last?  I'm not a huge fan of storm points so I'm not really looking to change points.  Is there anything else I should be looking into or that may help?  I'm really liking the L-style but is it worth the money on the flights if I'm only getting a month, or is a punch with normal flights more effective?
Thanks,
Kevin

ks99, I'm curious, and not meaning to be negative in any way, but how did you tear up the tridents? Any photos of your flights and tridents?

I honestly have no idea only like have of them are left on the dart. They seem to fit better on my customs (tapered nose) then the Priestley's. I can take some pics and upload them on Saturday. It's at the bottom of the tridents, little pieces missing and stuff and all banged up. A picture will help cause I'm not describing it well at all haha.

So are they more for soft tip players then? I wasn't sure if it was wires or just hitting flights and getting deflections.

Ahh, the cone/apex part of the tridents, the skinny part then! That makes sense Crusher! And I would think if you're using the boards with the razor spiders, it makes it worse. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

tridents are for steel tip i assume as soft tip points are usually tapered, they will help but with plastic hitting steel all the time they do get chewed up and why you get i think it's 9 on the lil star

Ya I use the blade 4. So they are pretty much a waste then it seems. I just don't know if its worth to keep spending $5-8 on flights or just punch and use regular. I may try the spinners I just don't know if I want to pay that much for the carbons.

I've had my carbons since the summer there still fine i paid about 20 Can for them, to me well worth it, but everyones expierences are different

I like the carbon spinners as well but found the new Target pro grip spinners and Harrows super grip spinners are very good with no wobble. Much cheaper than the carbons and are actually tighter

Ya I'm thinking of getting some, it's not so much the stems that are the problem, I would like to get more life out of the flights. I may try the spinners to see if that would help.
