Very lightweight and less prone to bending than regular metal shafts. After about one month of use one of the prongs broke off on one of my darts, but the flight still holds in place without the missing prong. I recommend using with O-rings to prevent loosening during play.
Thank you for your support. We are happy that you are enjoying our Viper Graphite Shafts. If you have a prong that breaks after a month, let us know. W'd be happy to send you a new one! I'm a big fan of using O-Rings as well, great advice. Best of luck darting!
