Grip for consistent release
I have used the standard pencil grip (with the middle finger offering support under the barrel for a few months now) and still have trouble with an inconsistent release where my darts will go left or right of my target.  I rarely get a good grouping for all 3.  I'm trying to lessen how much my middle finger gets involved with the release.  I've thought about making sure my middle finger stays in contact with my thumb throughout the throw and release to help make sure it isn't pushing the dart in one direction or the other. Any ideas?

Sounds like you have the right idea. Once you change your grip I believe you need to stick to it until it becomes habit.

Thanks, here’s hoping for some consistency.

Are there any issues with gripping the dart too tightly? Try to grip them as lightly as you can.

I try to keep track of grip pressure.  I’ll keep doing so while making some changes.

Keep in mind that the thumb and first finger are responsible for propelling the dart. I also use a very light "pencil grip", and my middle finger is not near my thumb at all. It helps support the dart during the set and draw back, but moves out of the way automatically as soon as I initiate the throw. Can you post a picture of your grip? Might help understand what you are confronting.
