    What Flight?

    What shape flight do you use?

    After settling on Andy Hamilton 25g barrels and short stems I have been experimenting with flights.

    Have been using standards all my life but tried some pear flights and found my game improved again.

    Depends on what dart I'm using
    Kites on my bullet shape darts
    Standards on my straight barreled darts

    Also depends on the length of straight barrel for me too
    Shorter straight barrels I can get away with pears or kites, but with the longer barrels anything other than standard just fish tail.

    The bullets I can use any flight, they seem more forgiving to my throw, but kites work great for me

    I have to say I do like the dxm slims on the phase 5s, although they land a bit flat for me, they are surprisingly accurate

    Currently using target rhino clear standard, but tend to always use flights over 100 micron (thick).

    They land rather flat for me as well. But I do like them

    I like the slims and the fact that they land flat. Good for 'stacking' and I find they take up less room in a tight fitting.

    Custom Sigma 26grams add a grams Short Black Nylon Shafts Black Pear Flights
    Sigma LP 24.9grams Sigma Slik Stiks Silver or Black Sigma Pro Flights
    Phase 5 Gold,Black,LP Phase 5 Shafts or Medium Nylon Shafts Slim or DMX Flights

    Too many others to count or mention.

    Ive only used standard flights apart from one time i experimented with some thin flights, dunno what shape they were called.. But they failed miserabley, 1 or 2 falling out out of three, so i just stuck to standards since then

    Hi James, I've only used the slims a couple of times as an experiment as they came with my rossos, I used tweenie nylon stems.

    Only having the one set of slims I didn't want to trash them up, so I went on and cut some slims out of an old set of standards, which seemed to work.
