How to practise outshots?

Basically you set a score,for out practice I use either 100 or 150, I'll use 100 for an example. Player 1 tries to get the score to zero. Player 2 tries to get the score to 200 and have to double out...both using the same score. For example...P1 shoots 60, score is now 40 (100 - 60). P2 now has 160 to try and take out. Say P2 hits 45...now the score is now 85 (40 + 45). P1 now has 85 to take out. It's better to play with another person but you can do it solo. It gives you out practice and math practice. Hope all this makes sense....

I would try it if I had someone to play with, it sounds like a fun game to play.

Some great ideas from you guys, thanks all.

Yeah, my routine is not the best.  I'll read the forum see how other people practise and then try to make a new routine that suits me.

I need to improve my maths too, I'm terrible at counting down.

Keeping the flow when throwing for out shots is key in my opinion.   If after every dart you have to stop and give it more than a second or two to know what is left and what your next target should be can be detrimental to many people's game, especially rhythm players.

Knowing the outs like it's second nature is a good thing and the only way to get there is to do them and know the progressions.

Yeah, I've printed out all my outshots from 61 to 170, so I'm slowly getting there.

Do you have a specific way of choosing which outshots to practise or do you just work your way up from 81 to 170?
