Good question, I don't know but I would be surprised if it was in the 90's?

There are lots of old matches on youtube so the math could be run.

I'm extremely impressed with these averages considering the boards they played on were terrible comapred to what we have today.

a 92 average in 1978 is very impressive to me... VERY impressive. When did the blade style wires appear?

Also... 3000 GBP for the winner in 1978.... 100,000 GBP in 2014...

Blows my mind really. Check out the size of Rees darts. Huge!!! 31 grams I think?

I think he designed and made his first set and they may have been the same design but in tungsten.

I 100% agree.

Speaking of, If you look at the 'show us your triple bull' thread, I think most of them are on Blade 4s. Coincidence? I think not!

Yeah, the Blade 4 has a 'healthy' bullseye. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Those averages are better than I anticipated, all things considered. The target doesn't half look tiny on old boards!
