Been playing around a month now and still yet to hit one, but I have been close. Spent most the month trying find out a throw and weight I like though, so now that I've sorted that out I should get better.

Hit 140 a few times, struggle get that last dart in. Any tips?

my advice would be to do exactly what you are doing and experiment.
other then that, try to establish a rhythm in your throw. the better your rhythm
the easier it will be to repeat your last throw.

for me the thing that always puts me off on the last dart is me thinking
about hitting that high score.

also keep in mind that the progress you make isn't readily apparent until you actually start hitting those scores.
and i don't think i hit my first 140 until about a month in either.
so: experiment, practice, and trust that you are making progress, even when it doesn't look like it.

also browse around here, there are a couple of threads with tips on how to improve your game and
hit that first 180.

Just relax it'll come....a good exercise is throw at the treble if you get one dart in leave it there and continue to throw (the other 2) and if you get another one leave that and just throw the last one until all 3 are in there...it'll give you abit of confidence 1.knowing 3 darts will go into the treble 20 and 2. It'll get rid of that last dart nerves Smile

A few months ago I had to change my throwing hand during the injury. Currently still looking first 180 at my left hand. I guess it will come quite soon cause now I have a good grip, and better stance and throwing action is getting smoother. When I started to play darts in the middle of 1990's with my right hand. I would say a confidence and a consistency are the keys. But good luck to all who are still trying to nail the big 180.

Been 3 weeks since I started and I got my first, while actually trying to hit it, today. Got it with a new set that arrived this afternoon so I guess I'll stick with them for a bit.
