Dart Flight Protectors – What are the Benefits?

Dart flights help keep a dart stabilized in flight. It works by cutting through and dividing the airflow, reducing drag.

Therefore, it’s crucial to ensure that your dart flights are always in good condition. In which case, we’d recommend something called a dart flight protector.

We’ve highlighted some of the main features of dart flight protectors below. 

Why use a Dart Flight Protector?

Dart flight protectors help keep your flights in their original shape. Preventing flights from becoming damaged and thus maintaining optimal performance.

How to Use a Flight Protector

When fitting flight protectors, it’s essential to follow a set of standards, these include:

  • Make sure to maintain the same flight shape with all 3 of your darts
  • Avoid changing the flight shape frequently
  • Try to spread the dart flight yourself before using a flight protector

Keeping the flights in the uniform ‘X’ shape guarantees the perfect flight of your dart. However, there are numerous shapes of flights, such as Kite, Pear, and Electro. 

Flight protectors are easy to use; simply clip them around the flight.
