Choosing the Right Shape and Texture for Your Style
Are you new to the game of darts and confused by the huge variety of shapes, sizes and textures of dart flights?A good starting place in choosing a flight is with the two most common shapes: “Standard” for steel tip darts and “Slim” for soft tip darts.
Standard Flights - Probably the most common dart flight and also one of the largest. Standard flights should be used if you throw with less force or like to "lob" your darts at the board. You may also want to use standard flights on steel tip darts, if your darts are heavier, or if they have longer shafts. Heavier darts require less force to stick in the dart board and larger flights will help keep darts aloft for longer with a lighter throw.
Slim Flights - Smaller than standard flights, slim flights are good if you like to throw harder, want to avoid "lobbing" your darts or if you use lighter darts or short shafts. Soft tip darters may benefit from using slim flights because soft tip darts are generally lighter, thus requiring a harder throw to stick in the board. Additionally, if your darts stick in the board at a high, upward angle (greater than 10 degrees) you may want to switch to a smaller flight like a slim. Smaller flights will help reduce drag in the air, allowing the end of the dart to drop slightly in flight. Finally, slim flights will help reduce the chances of bounce-outs and damaged flights from tight groupings, especially if your darts have short shafts.
Other Flight Shapes - Beyond the common standard and slim flights, there is a large variety of flight shapes including pear, Combat, Vortex, Fan Tail, etc. These shapes range from larger than standard to smaller than slim.
