Learning darts: the Peter Wright method

Took the words right out of my mouth Wink . After an hour or so of practicing/warming up, if the results are just downright shoddy, very occasionally I feel like I need to either "reboot" or "return to my roots." What I'll do is to switch over to some house darts. The venue that I prefer has a bucket of (soft-tip) house darts with different barrels, lengths, weight, and in all sorts of conditions ranging from "trash-can worthy" to "it still flies."  

After several dozens of tosses, I return to my own regular darts and (as if by magic) my release point, aim, and grouping improve very visibly.

At first I thought that maybe it was a psychology or mindset thing, maybe it was just my way of fine-tuning a motor skill while it "loaded up." But, like others have posted, it does seem to work and now I've learned that there's an actual method/theory behind it!

Same for me buddy, lol after I switch, throw, and switch back to my usual set, my brain goes “oh, there’s your throw” lol Smile

Never thought it over but I can warm up with lighter barrels then get in the real practice with my usual set.
Is there something going on I'm not sure.
Maybe I need to go full wright and use different darts every few months?

Well worth of trying this kind of approach. I do have two same sets with different weights so when I'm in the slump I do go for a heavier set in order to reset my throw. Sometimes this brings results sometimes doesn't. Didn't actually switched the sets during the practice sessions, but I will give it a go.

Cheers

If my flights are pretty beaten up I find that that my darts fly completely different despite being the same shape. I find my darts appear to be lighter. If I change the flights and throw again with new flights I find that I feel the darts i heavier and i have more control over it. Mental but true.
