Slim shape flights are a smaller and narrower option for flights. They are designed for players with a faster, more aggressive throw. Due to their decreased surface area and boxy shape, slim flights create less drag, allowing the dart to travel faster and with less air resistance. They are also ideal for players who have a more compact throwing action.
Should I use slim shape flights?
If you throw the dart with a lot of power and don’t loop the dart onto the board, a slim flight will help to cut out wind resistance and speed up the dart through the air.
Kite flights have a unique shape that resembles that of a kite. They have a wider top and a narrower bottom, providing a larger surface area for the air to pass over. This results in a slower, more stable flight, making them ideal for players who want more control over their throw through the air.
These are generally designed for players that take a more technical approach to their game, with a focus on releasing the dart at the right angle at the right time and speed, even more so than normal.

If you have a very technically minded throw, with a focus on the minor details whilst maintaining a slow speed across the flight of the dart, then this could be the shape for you.
