How to stop changing darts?
I have a really big problem. I can´t get myself to just us one set and get confident with it. As fast as i get problems with a set i change darts and it starts frustrating me very hard.

I changed my throw a little bit in the last week to get more consistent. But after that i can´t really get on one dart and it really depends on my day form how im throwing.

Pick a set you are comfortable with, throw well, and generally like. Take the rest of the sets you have and put them in another room as far from you board as you can. If you want to switch to another set you have to go them them. If they are sitting in the general area of your board it is WAY to easy to "try that set and see what happens".

Really good advice, I've taken to sticking all my sets in a fishing tackle box and whacking it on top of a cupboard, out of sight out of mind!

Stems:  Pro-Grip Short.
Flights:  Standard, variable designs.

I used to have several sets lined up under my board and if I was throwing like crap I'd grab another set and see how they worked. My mood would fluctuate and the darts would catch my eye too easily. I also changed my throw several months back and then went back to some older darts I used to use but then wondered how they'd feel now.
I wouldn't throw out the other darts but put them out of sight out of mind until the urge hits. I went back to my Broadswords after a couple years and glad I kept them they feel like butter smooth leaving my hand, but they were hidden until then.
I wonder which dart I'll have to have next though?
Have fun with the set you are using now

In all honesty, your throw will change over time. There's no way around it. So changing darts isn't really the worst thing possible. Not practicing properly would be worse.

I think that this is a very, very common problem for all of us. First of all, there is the joy of adding another set of darts to the collection. Second, and this makes no sense to me, if I am in a slump and try a different set of darts I seem to do better. Probably just because it is something new.

I seem to be getting to the point (and I still consider myself somewhat new to darts) that I am zeroing in on what works. Classic, straight barrel with ring grip. Some of the other designs were a help when I was struggling with consistent finger placement (Priestley shape, bullet, etc.). But now, I try my other darts but seem to keep circling back to my Lewis Gen 3's.

I've also noticed that, as my throw has become a bit more consistent, the weight doesn't really matter that much to me. I have 18 to 26 gram darts and am pretty happy with the 19's I am throwing now.

Having said all of the above, I will still add to the collection because I am still convinced that the next set will be the best! What can I say? I like gear.
Target Taylor 9 zero soft and steel tip 

Boards: Gladiator 2 with Target Vision lighting system and Gran Board 2 soft tip with Target Corona lighting system.

Luckily I now am throwing better with one set than all others so the choice for me is quite easy. Used to do this in the past but I don't think there is any harm in switching sets as long as your throw is quite consistant.

The best advice I've ever recieved is that you will have peaks and valleys while throwing you just have to ride out the valleys and love the peaks lol
