I took your advice on this as you mentioned on the old forum, when I go through those spells of 1's and 5's I use it to straighten myself up, works great as you certainly do stretch out, I even use the zero of the twenty number, when im feeling frisky. I recently took a young up and coming player under my wing (Great eye on him), I told him that you are better off smashing double top than triple 20 when practicing, a month later he is smashing everyone and hasent got a clue how to leave himself with a good peg lol. Kid never throws under 60 avg amd when he gets a good run on they go into high 70's after many games. Plus steals all the pegouts (even going the wrong way about it)
Thanx Larry


I will definitely be doing this from now on!

Or you could just aim at the lampshade over the dartboard.... the one with all of the holes in it, now I know how they got there.

The thing I see with people when they first start to really concentrate on extending the arm is that they wind up with their shoulder moving forward (meaning they're turning their torso). Lots of 5's.
26's so far this year: I've already lost count. :-)

So you're saying I should aim on my garage arm up top by the lamp? Hahah. d:x

Yup! (Avoid the wiring though, unless it's unpluged)

Has anyone actually hit a live wire with a dart? Was in entertaining? I love fireworks, just not indoors.

Not often you see "his" and "snatch" in the same sentence.

I am nowhere near an experience player or a very good player but I would advice to "enroll" in flightschool!

Take a lot of thinking out of game and help me a lot even if I am only 3 days in.

The "philosophy" behind it suit me.

Best advice that was given to me so far.

Same here, I'm 3 practice sessions in and I feel a different mindset and just overall general sense of becoming a better player.

Never ever show anyone that you're mad just because you lost. Never slam your darts down on the table in anger. Worst of all never ever hit the dartboard with your fist/hand.

So you lost. Big friggin deal. If you want to get mad, wait until you get home or something. But 100% of the time I've ever seen anyone get mad about losing a game of darts they always end up looking like a right tool. Also, never tell the person that just beat you "you got lucky there". Take your loss like a man and just say "well done" instead.

Poor sportsmanship has NO place in darts so remember that at ALL times. If you're getting seriously mad over a game of darts then maybe you shouldn't be playing at all.

And for the love of god, PLEASE don't call a bullseye a double bull. Smile

a dude I used to play with actually shattered his darts by slamming them down on the bar. The woman he was playing hit a max against him out of no where and he slammed them down. 2 out of the 3 barrels broke... I've never seen anything like that

Crap like that upsets me and I would of definitely said something. The proper thing to do would be to give her some props for hitting a 180. You know she was super excited to hit one so why not give her a quick fist bump instead? Dude sounds like one of those guys that never thinks he should lose. Probably gets super mad about bounce outs as well. I can honestly picture this guy right now. I can almost see his white fitted cap on backwards. Smile
