Swing Station - I really like that place! Were you on Mal's team by any chance? If so, then I think we've met - I remember an Ed from that team. If you are who I think, then we actually chatted for a few minutes at the Colorado open a couple of months ago while warming up.

I played on the A team out of the Swing Station last Spring '12, then moved to the Master's team out of Windsor for the Fall. I've got a small kid at home and just couldn't commit to 15-18 Thursdays in a row, so I stopped playing league and am concentrating on getting tournament experience - thus the travelling to Denver every week or two for LOD's and such.

How is the soft-tip scene here in Fort Collins? I've never picked up a soft tip dart before, but if it would get me more small tourney experience (blind draws, etc.) with out having to travel to Denver every time I want to play that would be awesome!!

Soft tip has about 500 players active. Weekly blind draws. Worth a look mate

I totlly agree with loopdogg.
Tried o rings with my nylon shaft, and with the
unicorn Xl's.
Problem solved, with the o rings they don't come loose

the problem I find with o-rings is that when they are squeezed to a tight fit, there's usually part of it sticks out which can be a bit of a put-off depending where you grip the dart (narked me off I can tell you). I found a solution though which, when used properly is a one-time trick that lasts as long as the stem does.

You just unscrew the stem put a little bit of blu-tak inside the dart and screw the stem back on. viola!!

The amount of blu-tak has to be right. Not enough and it will still come loose, too much and the stem won't screw on fully (this is easily rectified by using another dart point to scrape a little of the stuff back out and then replace the stem again. You'll get the hang of it after a couple of attempts.

Hope this solves your problem.

I agree with Teflon/plumbers tape for nylon or carbon shafts. It eliminates the bit that bulges out. Also if you are not careful the o-ring can cause your stems to be crooked.
