Would slightly heavier darts (fvj, waffle tip) be able to handle slightly higher fps via slightly higher voltage without fishtailing as badly as slightly lighter koosh darts?

I think I've decided on using a worker buffer tube and an airsoft grade butt stock that houses an 8.4v sub-c nimh pack and hoping it works well with mtb rhinos and slightly heavier ekind waffle darts without fishtailing. And hoping upgrading to canted metal flywheel cage will help with dart fishtailing.

A canted flywheel cage can cause whirlybirds. Most people go for straight cages.

 

But yes heavier darts are often more stable at high velocity (although heavier darts will also not fly quite as fast out of the same blaster)
