Unicorn - behind the scenes at the matchplay.
Just seen this blog post.

It’s an interesting piece to read on how Gary tinkered with his set up throughout the matchplay tournament.

Very interesting read, thanks for posting...

That was a really good read.

Nice to get behind the scenes to learn what goes on.

its nutz (see what I did there) that these guys can makes changes off the cuff hours before a tournament and still play like they do
Darts used-25g Bristow red ring argos specials
Shafts used- target pro grip short black
Flights used- black standard
Very interesting read, subtle changes so often go un noticed yet can make significant changes to a players performance.
A 1% improvement at the very top level can be all that’s needed, 1 double/treble to win match.
Seems Gary is actually a secret tinkerer LOL

Current Board 
Gladiator 2 with Corona Surround and Unicorn number ring
23 Gram Modified ONE80 Comets with black points, Pro Grip stems, punched RD Hardcore flights with Target titanium stem rings                      

If you can hit the target when your arse is hanging out you are a great player 

PB since re starting playing in 2014. 15 darts May 25th 2015  and  equalled May 25th 2016                                                           
I'm glad you found it as interesting a read as I did, Like many have said it's interesting to see that even the highest level like to tinker with set up, even if only hours away from playing on one of the sports biggest stages.

Always fun to read when a player is not afraid of tinkering for improvement.
I don't think there is anything 'natural' about throwing darts. A person does not naturally stand sideways, with weight more on one leg, lean forward and swing to launch a projectile repeatedly, day in, day out as part of daily routine. One does not even throw a rock or ball that way.    ~ With darts, everything has to be learnt, and refined.  Wink

What is NATURAL? http://www.dartsnutz.net/forum/showthread.php?tid=22147

A beginner - always experimenting and trying to learn! So I can fool around with loads of set-ups and techniques! Lol! Big Grin
