Snatching is bad ! Open that hand please!
Snatching is bad,snatching is bad, snatching is bad, extend that arm reach for the target and open that hand. I have been holding on to my darts too long and not opening my hand near the very end of my throw. I know better and just realized that I was not opening that hand . Concentrated a bit on that and now much,much better grouping. Strange how something you know to do and fall out of the habit and then have to correct. Should be natural for me now but competition can cause me to do these things lol.

I agree, and I know when I dont release that dart right, it often goes off at a funny angle. My difficulty is trying to do it naturally, feels a little too forced at times and puts me off me throw?

I completely agree Saber. I have just recently finally started getting full extension on my throw. Much like you grip it feels unnatural at times but the more I do it the more I am finding that proper motion and it is starting to feel far more natural. Hopefully in another year I will be in good shape Big Grin

Never given my release point a second thought. at what point do most people release a dart, as it is still rising, at he top or after the peak?

My release is equivalent to Taylors
Play like it means nothing when it means everything

Of course, the extension ought to be a full extension as well..... IMO, slo mo videos of the pros shows that some of their extensions are excessive, but if you always throw that way, you remove one more variable... that being the amount of extension.

So important though to be consistent
