How to hit your first 180 in darts ...
... Possibly! Smile

Years ago when I first looked on the internet for help and advice I seen a forum that was connected to Red Dragon called The Dragons Lair I think.  I joined hoping to get some darts help.  By coincidence a member joined around the same time as me and his first post was to offer people help and advice if they needed it and to PM him for info.  I think most people must have thought he was a spammer, but I had nothing to lose and sent him a PM.

I got the reply thats pasted below.  

I thought I had lost it, but thankfully I had made a printout which I found recently so thought I would share it.

I followed the guys advice, mostly about rhythm and the very next day I hit my first 180!  I was chuffed to bits! I pmed him to thank him and he was thrilled to hear it also.  Next few weeks I was hitting lots of big scores and even hit my first and only triple Bullseye!  I was so happy that I had finally reached the next level!  But then I hurt my wrist and took a while to heal that, then after re-starting for a few weeks I then broke my shoulder and that was the end of my brief spell as a decent thrower Smile

But have a look and read it, there may be something useful for you in the info, I have no idea who the guy was but he states Peter Manley was a family friend and that he played in a Worlds

That was a good read Darren. Shame the guy didn't share who he was, but forums being forums, he would have probably got all kinds of stick, from people calling him out, to discrediting his information, so probably best that he remained anonymous. If the advice helps then it doesn't matter who he is/was really.

He helped you, and maybe this information will help others and if so then great. It's nice for others to share this kind of information, and it is this kind of info that makes forums like this one such a good thing to be involved in. Complete polar opposite to the tool that is Bojangles, who not only won't say who he is, but also claims to have all the answers, but won't share.

Wonder where he is, I miss him lol
