Target Darts.

Outshots you have changed over time
I think when we all first started playing we had certain ways we went for out shots either out of comfort or how we were taught by others.  As you started to play more your thoughts on these might have changed.  What are some ways you used to go for outs that you have changed over time?

Mine are:
80 - used to go for trip 16 first dart to setup d16 - now go 20 20 d20

78 - always went for trip 14 d18 - now always start on 18 so if I miss I have a 2 dart finish

134 - used to go t20 first - now go for t17 as if I hit I can stay right there to leave d16

125 - used to go bull first - now go 18 first since a miss in the 18's still leaves a triple and a bull for finish

67 - used to go t17 do leave d8 - now go for trip 9 since any miss still leaves a 2 dart finish

82 - used to t14 d20 - now shoot for bull as a single leaves a single double out

126 - used to start on t20 - now shoot t19 on first dart as a single still leaves a chance for t19 bull to finish

129, always went T19 to leave 72 or 110. Now go bull/25 as 25 leaves 104 = t18 bull or bull leaves 79.
Agree with troll on 61 as T7 or T19 will do

I have changed how I throw 70.

Used to always go the Treble 10 Tops route but now I go T14, D14.

Single 14 leaves 56 which is a nice 2 dart out and treble 14 means you already have the line for the double!

when i first started playing i never used bull first dart on 91 to 95 but now i always do. and i used to always use T20 if it was a valid combination, but now i am happy to use other trebles instead.

as an example 116 would have been T20 S16 D20 but now i will go T19 S19 D20 to save moving around the board as much

Never really thought about going that way, but that's why I wanted to post this thread.  I think people get caught in a rut sometimes of always going a certain way without giving other options a thought.

I've started to use the bull more too, and look for combos that don't have you switching all over the place.

Good stuff guys

108 as I use to go for the T-20, S-16, D-16.

I now go T-19 S-19, D-16  since these numbers are practically adjacent to one another as opposed to throwing the first dart at the upper part of the board and then coming down for the 16's.


Not that I hit either one of these options with regularity, but I'm just more comfortable on the bottom of the board.


Yesterday I saw Gary Anderson go for the 108 with a T-17, S-17, D-20 and that is another option.

110 I always used to go for the T20 first dart but now I go downstairs.

S19 leaves 91 which is T17 D20
T19 leaves 53 which is either S17 D18 or S3 Bull
S3 leaves 107 - T19 Bull
T3 leaves 101 - T17 Bull
T7 leaves 89 - T19 D16
S7 and I'm stuffed lol

I used to go the 20's route here too, but changed to the 18's as any single in the three pie spacing still leaves and out and I tend to drift to the right sometimes....

S19 leaves 91 which is T17 D20
T19 leaves 53 which is either S17 D18 or S3 Bull
S3 leaves 107 - T19 Bull
T3 leaves 101 - T17 Bull
T7 leaves 89 - T19 D16

Really well thought out, appreciate the alternative route..

I did this the other night at league and got called on it. I was not able to immediately convince my more experienced friends of this route before the subject changed.

Also, on 104 and 108 I always start with T16 now (as opposed to T18 and T20, for example, for exactly the same reasons I now start 67 with T9). Started off 108 with a throw at T16 at the previous league night and, again, got called out for it (although at least this time my helper could kinda see my reasoning). Trouble is, I am relatively new and not overly gifted with the mechanics part or the 'playing in front of other people' part (although improving well on both fronts), so I think it looks a little silly if I try to argue my way too adamantly.

I've changed a few upon reading threads on this forum and watching the pros, but the one that comes to mind now is 62.
I used to go T10 D16. Now I tend to go T14 for D10 as a S14 leaves 48 which gives the 16-8 block to aim at and a larger margain for error to get a single to leave a go at the double which is especilly useful if under pressure

Great topic.

68 - Now T12 D16 ... hitting a S12 or the neighbor 9 or T9 or T5 all leave you a simple single to reach a double.

Used to go T20 D4 however when I realized that hitting the neighboring S1, T1 or S5 always left me with a Single DBull for the win. Additionally it truly hurts when you bust a 68 by hitting the D18 instead of D4.
