How to hit your first 180 in darts ...

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

Yeah I agree Danny, at the time I don't think he got much of a response from the forum as I think everyone thought he was a spammer, but I was glad I contacted him. As for Bojangles, I have seen him posting elsewhere with the same rubbish!

Its worth a try Tommy, give it a go and let us know if it helps Smile

I still can't nail 180 but this gives me something to work on with good direction. Aiming for different parts of the dart when my shots fall short or long has helped me also, but still don't have the accuracy you all talk about.......but it's still fun trying and that's what it's all about for me now.

Thanks for sharing this training strategy with us grip...........

I love the guy's positive attitude, and he's so right about rhythm. I'm always amazed that when I'm first warming up and just banging away away at the board (trying to get rid of that grinding noise in my elbow) how tight the groupings are. And I'm saying to myself, "Man, if I could only just relax and throw like this in a game…"

Pressure got to me yesterday in a tournament. I wasn't throwing consistently at all. One round I would hit a 140 or 7 marks in cricket (it alternated). The next couple rounds I would hit a 22 (on the wire but still a 22) or one mark in cricket.

Rinse repeat.

I was off because my rhythm wasn't consistent. I couldn't get comfortable with my throw. At the oche, I refuse to think about anything other than "I'm going to hit this" or "I've got this"... but after the throw, the smooth feel wasn't there. I rarely have a jerky throw. Last night...I did. Some throws perfect. The next to quick or too slow.

I still made it 7 rounds in double elimination, but it wasn't automatic like it should be.

I am really going to put some effort into this counting and see if I can find a system that works for my throw.


As for the aiming, I'll have to try this. I prefer my eyes NOT to move as I am about to throw a dart... so unless I am misunderstanding the directions, it will be tough.

It's definitely different from what a tennis pro will tell you, which is "Eyes on the ball. You already know where the court (aka the target) is, and it's not going anywhere."

That's why it will be tough. I pick a dot or defect in the sisal to aim at.

If both darts are where I want them, I will at times try to lay it on top of them or just hit them as this will tend to have the final dart reach the target.

anything to do with the eyes focussing these days is tough for me, but I try my best Smile

I tried this last night. I had mixed results. I thought I had a good pace for my throw and counting the pace in my head. Then for some reason my arm did what it wanted to do. So my pace would speed up then after noticing the speed up I would forcibly slow it down, which was too slow. The one thing that seemed to work is once I got a dart to where I wanted it let's say in the 20 or bull I aimed at the cross of the flight. This kept my darts very close, closer then I have been able to do.

I did get about a half dozen of these, though. It may happen soon.

Rhythm is the only thing saving me right now. As I'm working on getting my throw back. If i have to stop and think about score or my throw I'm screwed. If I can throw all three without having to break my rhythm I can score much more consistently

Me too. I'm just how beginning to realize why knowing your outs -- really knowing them -- is so vital. And why the players who have put in the time to know their outs get so frustrated with a partner who hasn't. I still have a lot of work to do in that regard.

No problem Smile

There is a lot of info out there but I think sometimes it can be too technical or involved and that just messes with your mind, but I think having a good rhythm is something easy to understand and easy enough to put into practice, improving accuracy is the hard part but if you have a good rhythm and can group your darts together then it helps greatly, you only have to get that first one in and the rhythm should help getting the next two in Smile

perfectly said grip. Put that first one in the hole and the rhythm will greatly help put the next two right in (almost point to point)

This worked and worked well, got my first 180 practicing at the bar last night. I am definitely going to keep this info as part of my play and practice.
