Help getting my T20's
Hi guys.

I have now played for two weeks and need little help with my grouping. As I try to throw T20, i get serious amount of T5's and T1's. I dont know is that lack of training or is there something wrong with my tehchnique. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I hear ya! Been there done that!

Don't know if you're having the same problem as I, but in my case I believe that it was a combination of different things.
First of all I wasn't holding my throwing arm the right way. My elbow was angled out,or away from my body. Step one was to hold it in a straight 90 degree angle.

Step two was that my eye was drawn to the light fields of 1 and 5. The dart landed in a correct height, but since my eyes were focusing on the lighter colour of the 1's and 5's it hit T5 or T1.

Solution? Practice, practice practice Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
Focus on where you want to hit, in this case T20. And throw many darts at the target. I've been doing a practice in wich you throw a houndred darts at a specific target. Worked for me... I still hit the wrong number every now and then, but my game has certainly improved.

Hope it helps, best of luck!

Just keep practicing, its been 2 weeks ... imo you do not need advice on your throw, you just have to put in the board time. Things will fall into place, just be patient.

Good advice.



Me personally, set off your practice and just aim for the big 20 (above T20) for 10-15 mins, once warmed up then get more focused and drop down for the T20.

I see people going straight for the T20 from the first dart and getting more and more frustrated, low on confidence etc snatching or pulling 5's and 1's - the more frustrated the more bad darts IMO.

Start with the easier target, get your darts flowing, your arm movement free (less pulling/snatching etc) gain confidence that your darts are going where you are aiming (big 20) and then once your feeling good aim for the T20, full of confidence, arm and mind both flowing nicely.


Thats how I go any way Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

There is so much that affects the darts direction its difficult to pin point it to one thing. Your grip and release, your wrist position, your follow through, your position on the oche etc the list is endless.

In your video though you seem to lurch forward a little on your first throw then less so on the next 2. Try to keep still and move only your forearm. Your follow through was short on some throws and ok on others, try to improve it and keep it the same and work on releasing the dart at the same point in your throw. Trying to keep everything consistently the same is what will help your grouping, then you can fine tune your accuracy. Guests cannot see images in the messages.

I agree with Getagrip. I also noticed the darts were tilted differently on set-up for each shot.

Try to stop for a second and really focus on being in the same position for every throw.

Here is a quick video from Paul Lim that helps with this area. Skip the stupid commercials in the middle.

Possibly thinking to much, gets frustrating after awhile. I Try and take step back and a deep breath and relax and focus. Still working on all that, but my opinion and struggle is getting that just right mental focus.
