Charlie Ellix: any info on him
Hi guys

Was watching some old indoor league stuff and he looked class. 

Does anyone have more info on him, why he never appeared in big tourbies, what darts he used etc? 

It's weird as his wiki says he died in 2002, but I've heard he's still alive. 

Watching indoor league its amazing to think in 1977 he was only about 38?

Hi, Charlie lived in the same flats as me in Mill Hill, I then got into darts as a 12 year old and use to play in the same pub as Charlie called the "Royal Scott" ( only coca cola), Charlie thought I had potential as a darts playerl and I went to many tournaments  matches etc with him. Charlie used 26 gram copper tungsten darts that were smooth and were very similar to ted hankeys darts, however close to the thread of the darts there was 2 rings that were very worn due to the amount of use they had and  obviously the darts themselves were very worn. In 1977 Charlie was sponsored by SP which was the same company that made cricket bats, the darts that he endorsed that I had a set was the same has his but were tungsten darts with 4 grooves close to point end. I can recall that the Thursday before the 1977 Winmau world darts masters Charlie played on bullseyes and 25's at the Royal Scott, Charlie hit 9 continuous bullseyes and as always never got beat by anyone as always ! Charlie had to qualify on the Friday and got beat in the quarter finals by Eric who won the tounamant, Eric considered Charlie to be one of the best players in the world and they even had an agreement before the match where they would split the winnings which I think was 2k. Loads more great memories and stories of Charlie and the old days but that's it for now. Thanks
