19/17 pointers
Hi everybody,

So I've been playing a lot of cricket lately to help with my aiming and so I'm not completely focusing on the 20 section and I've found when I go to the bottom of the board, if I'm in a good rythm, I generally have no issues hitting what I want. But the majority of the time, when I aim for the 19's I end up in the 17's and when I aim for the 17's I end up in the 19's. I've had a few friends watch me, and they say everything pretty much stays the same, expect I pivot a little to the right when aiming at the 17's. I used to have this issue awhile ago when I was aiming for the 20's I'd end up in the 18's, it just kind of worked itself out. The strange thing is, after I throw, from my prespective it almost looks like the darts are taking this kind of flight patch ( .

Has anybody experienced this, or have any tips on how I can break this? I've just been playing through, and hoping it corrects itself, but like golf I don't want to be practicing the wrong things. Thanks in advance for your help.

In my experience I find that sometimes on the lower numbers I tend to not follow thru all the way. I found that throwing at the d20 gets me back where my follow thru needs to be

I'll give that a try, Thanks USMC80

Thinking about it, I'm wondering if my non dominant eye is playing tricks with my dominant eye.

Practice throwing a bunch of fat 6s and 11s. Try to hit them smack in the middle of the bed.

Then move down a row...throw 8 and 10s. Keep doing that until you're consistent.

Keep going down the rows and throw at the opposite sides. See what segment starts making you pull the opposite side. Then start aiming at the doubles section of that number to force yourself to throw at the furthest edge. Keep working downward and you'll be hitting the 19/17 in no time...it will become muscle memory.

Also, try not to move too much when throwing at a 17/19. Watch pros throw on youtube...they'll often throw two 20s and if the T20 segment is blocked, they'll move to 19s (it's a very common switch). Watch their bodies (especially their upper body/elbow position, etc..) and you'll see there is only a small change.

Try simply pointing at the 19 and then closing each eye to find out if either lines up with where you are pointing. The one that does is your dominant eye. Do the same with the 17. It should be the same eye in both cases.
