Hitting enough trebles but missing sideways to much
Hi!

Currently I am satisfied with the amount of the triple 20 I hit but I miss to often in 5 and 1.
Looking at the percentage:

An average day when aiming at triple 20.

triple 20: 10-12%
single 20: 35-45%
high miss in 5: 35-45%
low miss in 1: 10-15%


A good day it can be up to around 20% in triple 20 but I still miss at lot in 5 and 1.

It has been like this for 3-4 years now, I am not sure what to do.

I think my basic technique is good but I have difficulties to repeat a good throw all the time.
What I think is that sometimes my shoulder moves a bit forward resulting in the 5:s.
I also think that I hit 1 when I release the dart too early and try to compensate with some wrist turn.

Any ideas are welcome, exercises, technical things to think about or perhaps telephone number to a good shrink.

If most of your misses into 5 are high misses, and those into 1 are low, look at your forearm. If it 'leans' to the left, an early release will go high into the 5 and a late release will go low into the 1.

- If it don't fit, force it.  If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
- If it ain't broke, you might still be able to fix it.

Yes, it is correct. Due to my shoulder problems described in another thread, my forearm leans to the left.

Hi mate
Ive been trying to anylize the same problems as you said too much shoulder to the five is a practice thing but with mine with the ones is a grip thing either not gripping the dart as tight as I should ( there is a fine line ) and the dart slipping out or not picking the dart out of the holding hand in the correct position and imparting a clockwise swing on the dart as it comes out of my fingers. Getting there though as Im starting to hit a lot more 120s so once you identify the mistakes you can progress to improvement. Good luck.
