    Does anyone know if the Rocket shape exists outside of l-style and fit flight? I was just curious as I really like how the shape stabilizes my darts, but doesn't slow them down too much. However, considering the price ,I haven't been too impressed with their durability. So I was just curious if any cheaper flights are made in this shape, or at least something similar? I wasn't sure if the Japanese companies had some sort of trademark on the shape or something because I haven't seen anyone else making them.

    Not too sure on what you are calling the rocket as the only thing on the cosmo was the rocket inside, seeing as all teh shapes I could find a re the usual bar 1 style, thought you maybe meant these

    No I'm referring to the rocket shape made by l-style and fit flight. Fit flight does call it a "Rocket Inside" which I believe is a literal translation.

    I know it looks like a standard shape, but it is a bit smaller and a little pointed at the rear.

    funny, one of my pals I was playing with turned his flight upside down (not the 1st time i've seen this done) the flight was in good shap but the edge was damaged so he could not slide it into the slot of the stem.

    Before I examined the dart closer, I though he was throwing rocket flight - have a look at the profile when you flip over a std dart flight.

    Just throw this out, not done it. When Taylor's dmx flight came out, I saw a lot of discussion on the UK forums about cutting down a std flight to match the shape. Sound like you could use the L-Style as a template.

    Ive actually done this and it turned out ok. My only concern is that each flight will turn out a little different due to my human error. Would this be enough to cause each dart to fly differently?

    i have been hoping someone would come out with that shape in a fold-able flight ,the L-style is way too expensive & don't last ,i can buy a set of l-style flights & they will be torn where they go into the shaft before a week ..
