Long or Short Shafts?

Using different length shafts and dart fights will change the way the dart fly’s. There isn’t a best shaft or flight to use as this is personal preference. If you are a watcher of darts and new to the game you will notice all darters will have their own preference in shaft length and type, plastic, metal, aluminium and nylon.

As a guide Short shafts tend to move the centre of gravity of the dart towards the front end of the barrel. For good throwing most dart throwers hold their darts at this point so if you hold your darts at the front end of the barrel the short shafts might be best suited to your throw. Long shaft will effectively move the centre of gravity of the dart towards the back, so if you throw your darts holding them at the back of the dart a long shaft my suit you better than short shafts.

yeah I guess it all depends on how the shaft length alters the barrels balance, I use medium mostly but on barrels longer than 50mm I prefer a short stem

I use a short shaft. Although flights will affect this as well. a good test is if your dart are hanging down in the board (flight way below the point) you may want to try a slightly shorter shaft. If the flight is way above the point you may want to try a slightly longer shaft. A bit of angle can be a good thing. Especially if you use a standard flight. If still gives you an open view of your target. But if it's a lot in one direction or the other you may want to change.
