For years the accepted method of rope dart flag fray prevention was to burn the edges of the flag. Burning the edges always worked initially, but then the flag would have to be burned again. And again. And again, until there was little to no flag left. This method of burning the flag resulted in both the flags inconsistency of shape and size and inconsistency of flight and wind drag making it difficult for practitioners to find consistent speed and control.
Because the best flags used are made of silk, tying them to the rope dart is challenging. The silk flag tends to stay tied on for a little while but always had the ability to untie itself, especially after prolonged use.
The Phoenix Tail Rope Dart Flag was designed as a solution to these challenges. Made from 100% Chinese silk, the flag features stitched seams so burning the edges to prevent fraying is no longer necessary. The button hole design makes the flag easy to attach and will not come off even after hours of intense training.
This flag is not a permanent solution to these challenges. However, after field testing for a year in everything from rough training conditions to nice training conditions, friendly get-togethers to live competition I can honestly say I have never come across a better and more consistent method of flag use on a rope dart. This thing works.
The Phoenix Tail Rope Dart Flag was designed by rope dartists for rope dartists.
