Darts Glossary
A few more from my local:

2-YARD DASH -- what you do when your scoring dart is about to fall out.

DART JESUS -- the fella who takes your terrible throw at T20 and puts it in T18.

LIQUID SKILL -- beer.

what darts are u looking for or want?

I will be getting those Elka's grip reviewed the other day, they just look sweet, would like to put gold points on them as well. I am also ordering a few other sets not sure which ones yet just looking for a certain design that might work with my grip. Also want to try different stem systems, like the fit and l-style champagnes (that tool is so expensive though). And what ever else I can afford after all that.

sling,a ton is british slang for 100

I think ton comes from Cockney slang for £100 but not really sure why its called a ton??

I've heard my distant S. Yorks cousins use it to mean 100 miles per hour. "He were goin' a ton. It were brilliant!"

a ton is known as 100 all over the U.K. but I am not sure where it originates or why the word ton is used.
