game drops after 20 mins practice
Lookin for a bit of advice from the great dart community, the first 20 mins play is promising but then my game goes downhill from there, my last practice I had I went round the board on doubles in about 10-15 mins finishing on the bull, tried it again, got to double 7 and that was it, even missed the board a few times, doing my nut in! Any advice would be great thanks

fatigue or possibly dropping your shoulder- maybe a 15 min rest between routines

What Saber said. I have definitely noticed myself dropping my shoulder when practicing for extended periods of time.

Also if you practicing somewhat seriously or for extended periods of time it can also be your concentration that wavers. I have definitely noticed this with myself. Especially if i'm not trying to challenge myself or giving myself something score or number to aim at.

That might be the issue.

What do you think? Lighter or heavier?

Do you throw with a lot of power? Are you maintaining your follow through motion?

Try lighter and compare results before you commit into buying.

25 grams is heavier than almost weight that a professional player uses. I'm not saying we're all pro's here and should compare ourselves to them but 25 grams is a heavy dart. You might be losing stamina after 20 minutes of playing and that's why your form drops off. Just a best guess really. Personally I'd try something a little bit lighter, maybe 22-23 grams and see if you get better results.

Id do some light weights too, i went to the physio before about an issue with my shoulder and he said your shoulders, back and chest arent really strong enough to support holding your arms out for that period of time and if you build up the strength on them it should help remove any pain/tiredness issues. Which it did for me anyway ... ive suggested this a few times on other forums but doesnt seem like anyone tries it but it does seem a bit stupid to do weights if its sore or tired but it does definately help.

I would say its mental try different practice routines. Challenge yourself and make sure you have a comfortable setting. wether it be some tunes in the background or some beers etc. It takes most people 20min or longer to find the groove so its good your firing right off the bat. As far as dart weight i like heavier darts i went from 22g to 25g and find them much easier to throw with less effort. just my 2 cents.. cheers

My set up is in my living room so there is plenty background noise with the TV and the wife lol, think I just need to realise that I can't become a pro in a week, have recently registered with flight school so hopefully will have plenty practice techniques to follow, thanks for the advice m8

Get online if you can. There's nothing better for improving quickly. Webcam Darts or Pro-Darter.
