Our collection of long dart shafts is the perfect choice for rear grippers. Also known as long dart stems, these will move the centre of gravity of the dart to the back end of the barrel, which makes them the ideal option for players who hold the dart at the back. In this range you’ll find a wide variety of darts shafts in different materials from brands including Unicorn, L-Style and Designa.
The darts shafts you use is a personal preference and it’s important for each player to find the length that suits you. Whilst small in size and weight, the length of shafts you use will impact your darts and how they fly through the air.
Dart shafts make a difference to the centre of gravity of your darts. For example, a short shaft will move the dart’s centre of gravity to the front, whilst a long shaft does the opposite and places the centre of gravity towards the back of the dart. The shafts you choose will often depend on where you hold the dart, as picking the right size that fits your style is essential for your performance.
Long dart shafts are the recommended length for rear grippers, and you’ll be able to find what you need in this collection. Using these shafts will shift the dart’s centre of gravity towards the back and, as a result, players who hold the dart at the rear of the barrel will be holding the dart closer to its centre of gravity, making them easier to control in the air.

Made From The Finest Materials
The long darts shafts in this range are available in different materials including aluminium, nylon, polycarbonate and carbon. The material of your darts shafts can impact the overall trajectory of the dart, as the materials all weigh slightly differently to each other. For example, an aluminium shaft is heavier than ones made from nylon or polycarbonate, which can affect how your darts fly through the air.
Nylon shafts are the material of shafts that most professionals will use. This type of shaft is also popular for beginners to mid-level players too because they are quite affordable and easy to replace. The Bulls Nylon Dart Shafts – The Original is an example of a long darts shaft made from nylon and is available in either white or black.
The L-Style L-Shafts – Silent – Silm shafts are available in several lengths, including long, and are made of carbon. This type of shaft is pricier than the other models but is a more premium product and are a good choice for the more serious players. These shafts are lightweight but at the same time very durable.
