Mix 'n' Matchin'

Well as it happens one of the best qualities of the modern dart is that it exists in parts. It can be broken down into its constituents and this offers the opportunity to build a great variety of dart styles from just a few pieces. One of my favorite things to do with my collection is to mix and match the barrels points stems and flights. I am always coming up with unique and interesting sets this way. Such as the set below. This sets flies well and enters the board almost exactly perpendicular to the floor. It is a surprisingly accurate combo. Here is the breakdown:

points: alloy contour steel points
barrels: Halex 17g Nickel Silversoft
Shafts: black aluminum micro
Flights: Spiraline Spike

Homemade Flight

My buddy made this flight based on some characters related to work. He did a fantastic job but it was labor intensive for sure. Each side of the flight has a different character on it with a different colored background. I am currently looking for GOOD flight making software/methods.
