Q) Why do flights come in different shapes?
A) Wing surface area affects the flight of the dart. As a guide, slim or kite shapes are better on lighter barrels, whilst pear, standard, and vortex shapes are suitable for medium to heavy darts.

Q) What type of dartboard is best?
A) Steeltip Darts: Bristle boards are best for pubs, clubs and tournament play. Bristle boards are constructed from millions of strands of densely packed compressed sisal. The sisal allows the dart to penetrate the board. The hole created by the dart point will close after the dart is removed. Soft-tip Darts: There are many varieties of board. Battery and mains powered games are suitable for home use and coin operated units for pubs and clubs.
