How to hit your first 180 in darts ...
I thought all you had to do was throw three darts into the treble 20!

Well...tried some legs to see if it works a bit.

Offcourse its a bit luck but I had a leg with a dart aver. of 31,3 per dart....thats 93,9 3-dart aver. .....never had so high Big Grin The highest leg I have had was 75 3-dart aver. and that was one time.

Normally I am at 12/15 aver. per dart Tongue

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

Thanks for sharing that with us. I am definitely going to give this a go this week. Hatrick look out no more 7's and 26's for me, I'm going for 40's and an occasional 60!

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!

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."
