    Pear shaped.

    My darts stick in the board a little flatter with them. Overall, I like my darts to be flatter in the board because I'm more prone to have my second and third darts fly in with a little bit of arc and come down on the dart in the board. I stop short of calling this stacking as I'm not in the same league as Phil and Barney. Smile

    With the full shaped flights, my darts are less flat in the board and arcing into the target (i.e. T20) with the second and third dart is more difficult. If you throw tight groups, try the pears and see what you think.

    This is in contrast to Wayne Mardle who likes for his darts to stand up tall in the board (he uses standard flights). I spoke about that with him in Atlanta and he shared an interesting point of view on this while he was showing me his unique way of gripping and releasing his dart as he threw.

    Anyone else use Vortex 353's...?


    Been using the 353's for about a year now. They seem to give more stability than the coal cracker style. I'm so used to seeing the smaller size, when I occasionally try a dart with a standard flight the standard flight looks HUGE!

    I also use the Unicorn Slik Sticks with the 353's, which is a little weird, since the 353's aren't long enough to fill in the slot. To fix this, I fill the slot with several coats of Teflon nail polish. Then I put a piece of heat skrink tuhing over that and then cover that with a coating of nail polish. With this combination, effectively, the flight and shaft are a single unit. It's an odd combination but it works for me.

    Considering the origin of my name, it probably makes sense that I have one of the most labor intensive flight/shaft combinations.

    Now that IS labor intensive... By the way, I used to play with SlikStiks and the bigger Vortex flights on my old 20g Jocky Wilson Datadarts almost twenty years ago. When I started playing again neither were available around here immediately, so I tried the 353's with short plastic stems, and have stuck with them since. I like the smaller flights (and I too prefer them to the slim style), and I found that I'd rather have the flight on the incoming dart slip out when I manage a tight enough grouping.

    It is. However, I don't like having to fiddle with my flight/shafts during a match. With my one-piece flight/shatts all the work is done well prior to the match. If something happens to one (rare) all I have to do is fit on a new one and I know that it is in perfect shape, ready to go.

    Like I said, I think it's something ingrained in me. I like to feel secure in the knowledge that my choosen weapon is ready for action. For me, that is worth extra pre-match work.
