I have considered them and have steered away mostly because I don't like the look of them.  I know that's shallow and I think the sensible thing to do would be to put some in my next order of flights and stems, which I plan to make soon.

Well, I think the search is over thanks to Humdinger's suggestion.  As expected I went ahead and added some Tridents to my flights and stem order and fitted them to my Durrant S2.  I went with red although silver would maybe look better all things considered.  This is how they look fitted.

   

As I said in the other thread I think the Tridents are working brilliantly.  Bad deflections are way down and I have only had one dart-on-dart bounce out since I fitted them 10 days ago.  It's a bit hard to quantify because the bad deflections (i.e. the ones that put the dart on the floor) are pretty infrequent at maybe 1 or 2 per practice session so I may go ages without seeing one.  Saying that 1 in 10 days is definitely less than I have been seeing.

Further evidence that the darts are slipping past each other is how my flights look after hours of practice.  Both these flights had about the same amount of use I would say, something like 10-12 hours of practice and play.  It's easy to see how much the ones with the original Harrows nose have been chewed up a lot more than the Tridents.

   

I've always loved the Durrant's and now that they are behaving as I need them too in terms of deflections I have no reason to change.
