By 457 & 600 rounds, do you mean each dart was thrown this number of times?

Cosmo's take a thrashing. I thought the review was excellent and the pics, who could ask for more? I use Cosmo's off-n-on and find them, just ok. They rip up pretty quick for me.

Thanks Sling, i like Fit Flight Airs normally, but these are a different plastic, i like the idea behind these but the material they chose doesn't work for me, when you see chunks flying off when you shoot kinda raises a warning

That's why they call you Crusher, isn't it? :-)

Seriously though, I struggle to believe it would have ended up like this if you had been using tridents.

I've used Robsons, Clic and Cosmo flights. I'd say the Cosmo are the most durable of these. However, I use the Cosmo spinner shafts, therefore the impact isn't that hard when one dart hits the other and I also noticed that the kites that I've used the most are less prone to damage than the No2 and No6 flights, due to the shape of flights and its angles.

I doubt tridents would help these it was the point hitting not the barrel, like i said it's the hard center piece that makes the dart go to the side and chew them up, i was using spinners, plus the point of these reviews are to show how they wear, everyone will have a different expierences, as i would say different on Cosmo being the most durable

I 100% believe you would notice the difference if you used the tridents. Give em a go if you don't mind having them on your points. I know some players prefer not having them as they need to feel the datum point there, but if you could try them (or Storms maybe), you'd see the difference. No doubt about that. I can see that you know exactly how many rounds you have played with these. It would be interesting to see the comparison after having played that number of games with tridents put on.

This is a great rundown of the moulded flight options. I've been curious about these for a while now, its the perfect 90 degree angle that really appeals to me. Also no robin hoods or messing about with rings. I plan to give L-Style a go soon, so am trying to get my head around what I need. Are the EZ ones with built in champagne caps an improvement on the original champagnes? I guess with the originals you at least get to add a splash of colour by picking your own caps.

What about stems? I gather that the expensive L-Style ones are not essential, but is there a definitive list of which nylon stems do and don't work with L-Style flights? I have Target Pro Grips and Harrows Supergrips to hand, do they work? I will most likely get some black No.6 (Shape) but I wish these L3 Pro 2 tones were available in the UK:

EZ series with the built in caps is dead simple to use, but the caps are plastic.  The Pro series with metal caps is tougher, but more effort to put together.

Never seen a definitive list of stems that'll work - depends on what series I'd say.  Pro is the most flexible IMO, but you'll just have to get some and try it out.  I stopped using L Style stems except on the EZ series.  One80 Vice are my favourites with the Pro series, but Pro Grip and Supergrip should work.

You'll rarely buy stems anyway, so not a big deal regardless.

cheers...

Edit: Should note you have to order Premium Champagne Rings with the Pro series flight to get metal.

Pretty much all of what Nixer said, i've only tried the EZ a bit i should get another set and give them a good test

The Two Tone flights you could buy Black flights & give them a light dusting with spray paint, thats pretty much what they are, i have the back & green set

I have been using the EZ flights a lot lately. They are very easy to use and are surprisingly durable (more durable than Robsons, IMHO).
I have used cheap Designa nylon stems, One80 Vice and Proplast stems, and Harrows Supergrip stems without any issues. No need for expensive L-style stems with EZ flights.
