Harrows Rainbow Darts Shaft

First impressions

Not many people will see darts as a serious sport. If you don’t play the game then you are just likely to see it as fun, and this is exactly what I see it as, even though I enjoy the odd game at home and in the local pub. One part of the game that a lot of serious players spend time on is perfecting their technique, but also their equipment. Finding the right weight and length of darts for your technique can be a lengthy process, and once you start playing about with different stems and flights etc. you are unlikely to want to stop.

What we have here are the Harrows Rainbow Dart Stems. They are just like regular stems in that they come in various lengths. The difference here is that they are predominantly white in colour, with various rainbow colours at the business end of the stems. There are various colours to choose from, though it depends on your flights as to which ones you opt for.

My experience

You will find that stems are made from nylon. This gives them a good balance of weight, and they are often also plain in colour. These rainbow stems are not, and this is their point of difference. They are available in pink, black, blue, yellow and green, though there are probably other colours available in the range aswell. This wide range of colour choices means that you will be able to find a colour to suit your needs, and the whole point of the rainbow stems is that you can colour co-ordinate your stems with your flights.

The fact that you can choose a colour to suit your flights is where the appeal ends, I am afraid. These stems are no different to others on the market, and when comparing other Harrows stems you will find absolutely no difference at all. The feel of the stems is the same to regular stems, so I wouldn’t be encouraging anyone to go out of their way to make this purchase.

These stems are available in a range of sizes. I have the short (35mm) and medium (44mm) stems, though a longer size is available if you prefer the longer stems. I have had no problems with the threads on these stems, and you should not be concerned that the threads on good quality nylon stems will wear. They do over time, but only if you are constantly changing them. The threads will wear, but unless you buy unbranded cheap stems you should not worry.

In terms of balance and performance these Harrows Rainbow stems perform as you would expect. You are not going to become a better player overnight from using them, and as I have mentioned before, your game will not improve at all. These stems are simply for looks alone.

Price and availability

The Harrows Rainbow Dart Stems can be bought for around the £2 to £3 mark. As always with online purchases, watch out for postage costs and take this into consideration. It could be wise to find a website that sells this product along with something else you want, to save on the postage costs.

Final thoughts

These stems are just as reasonably priced as other alternatives, and this is a positive because they don’t offer anything other than the novelty factor, in my view. They do look good when teamed up with colour co-ordinated flights, but they have no additional benefits other than looks.

I would say that these stems are worth looking out for, especially if you are used to the Harrows stems and these are just an alternative to your usual stems. I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to spend what could be £5 on a set of stems (including delivery) just for the novelty factor alone – they will not improve your game!
