Analysis of Taylor's throw
It seems that the only bit of weirdness is in the need to aim with the dominant left eye. I thought the elbow rose before release... I was wrong...

So why is it considered an oddity?

If they would ever make a dart robot, I reckon it would be based on Phil's throw.
Completely by the book IMO

One weird thing is he releases the dart with the point down.

This is why I think mimicking one person is bad. Gary Andersons throw looks just as textbook in slow motion, but we know it's a very different throw than Taylors. What's different about it?

Taylor's throw has changed over the years.
At least his grip of the darts did.
Although not as clearly visible as in the wonderful slo-mo video posted by the topic starter, the next video gives a nice look in the development in Phil's throw/grip

Anderson holds his elbow higher. His pull back is towards his dominant right eye. His dart spins as he releases it. His follow through is directly towards the target, while Taylor has a roll in his wrist towards the pinky finger.

So who has a better throw to mimic?

Look at how he's bending his back -- verging on contortion, but he makes it look pretty natural. And his hand goes almost straight out, no arc to it at all. Takes a lot of strength to do that. And then there's the "I mustn't blink" eyebrow thing. A collection of oddities, actually.

Grip and angle of release are the only odd things I have ever noticed

And no one. You shouldn't mimic anyone. Your body doesn't move exactly like Phil's. You should do your natural throw hundreds of thousands of times.

Does "use your natural throw" mean I have licence to stop short/snatch and move my elbow after aiming,and dance on the oche?

I have screws in my elbow, so it's physically impossible to follow through completely. Answer for me is obviously yes it's ok.

Your "natural throw" sounds a bit like mine, which looks like a guy being tased.

Pity. The video that the analysis was based on cannot be found.
