A set of three real Turkey feather dart flights on threaded back shafts ( DART BODIES NOT INCLUDED ). Dart aficionado prize real Turkey feathers for their authenticity and accuracy, to say nothing of the beautiful look.
A player's choice of flights can make a dramatic difference in the aerodynamics and accuracy of the dart. For optimal performance the dart should fly in an arc that is smooth, even, and without deviation, so that the dart accurately penetrates the board in the aimed place, and at an angle between 0 to 20 degrees up from horizontal.
This is why nothing equals feather flights for:
• Forgiving of mistakes
• Self healing even if struck by another dart
• Higher dart velocities
• Up to 700% lighter than plastic flights
• Ecologically: Feathers are natural bi-degradable products.
• Aesthetic: smooth, soft natural and historic appeal that can't be matched
Note that the feather flights are not removable from their back shafts to insure correct alignment, balance, and accuracy. These real Turkey Feather flights are permanently attached to a specialty nylon backshaft ( approx. 2 7/8", 70mm long ). The backshaft has the standard dart thread ( 2ba thread, 5mm x 0.7mm pitch ) and are simply screwed into any standard dart body.
