Having only thrown some of the lower quality darts that come with dart boards, these are a huge improvement. They feel well made, and for the most part, have stood up very well over time (appx. 1 month of heavy use). The steel tips stay sharp, the shafts have never come loose, and everything comes in a nice little box. The flights are of middling quality, and have worn down faster than anticipated - they come flat and do have a hard time staying at 90 degrees - and the lamination is already beginning to pull away. The shafts hold the flights very well, and as they are made of aluminum and not plastic, they can be bent back into shape if hit with another dart. The product matches the product description and pictures.
