Nice darts and setup. It's not the darts that will make Barney win again, but his mindset

the way he shows his grip it almost looks like the barrel is sitting lengthways along his fum rather than across it like it does with my own grip?

Really confusing about the grip section.

I've been watching his grip carefully for a long time and he's always had a similar grip.

Like this....

So why would he show such a drastically different grip in this video? Lovejoy and I both had conversations back and forth regarding his grip and I've never seen anything close to the grip below.

I know I'm a Barney nerd but that was the one aspect of the video I was most interested in seeing...I wanted to get a clear view of his actual grip.

Regulatori, I noticed the same thing. I didnt go and get the pictures, but he definitely showed a very different grip. Maybe thats how he starts then somehow rolls or readjusts to what he showed in the video?

Very different grips it looks to me.

The 2nd picture from the screencap is his initial starting point grip where he does the aiming before the pull back. He's one of the players that's grip position remains the same throughout the throw. He's not like Lewis where he rolls the darts with his fingers during the pull back.

I can post a multii-image collage if anyone is interested...it has Barney's grip from all different sides (even with his back to the camera) during his entire throw. I would collect an image if I came across a match that showed his throw from a different/new angle.

Barney's really the only pro that I took interest in the grip....mainly because I noticed we both shared similar grips so his was a great model for trying subtle changes with my grip.
