Shot Darts

Classic Dart Videos
These are some VERY rare videos. Stuff you won't see on Youtube. Back when darts was incredibly popular in the USA and prize money was great. While watching these I've come to the conclusion that the pace of the game has changed today. Back then you will notice players taking FOREVER to throw all 3 darts at a double. Up to 10 seconds for each dart, sometimes more. You just don't see things like that today. The players of today have more of a rhythm. Awesome videos though. Lot's of big names

Getagrip

Thats great, was flicking through the NAODT 1983 vid, watching Deller and Batten, I think Batten looked like she was those spring loaded Staymaster darts. That Dave Kelly was a tall guy!

Amazing how quite the crowd is

Watching the final match with Bristow and Lord for the best of three 301 was interesting. Compared to today's standard, they threw below average darts. Bristow won in 2 legs but it took him 17 darts and 18 darts respectively to do so.

He won with a three dart average of 53.1 in the first game and 50.16 in the second. Considering I've seen the top pros play 501 double in/double out in the same amount of darts, or less, is testimony as to how far advanced today's standards are.

Yeah the standard has reached an incredible level, I would be happy with a standard as good as the old days thoughGuests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Yeah me too. It just makes my darts look that much more pedestrian with today's standards. I'd be decent competition by the standards of the early 80's when that match was played.

I also noticed how long it took some of the players to throw 3 darts. It was downright painful to watch and makes Justin Pipe look like Speedy Gonzales.

I certainly enjoy hitting 3 x bullseyes which ive hit a fair number of times in practice but wouldn't go for such in an important

game with 150 left and im sure i know both Lowe and Bristow wouldn't either > Would you guys say a tournament

or league game go for 3 x bullseyes if on 150 left in a game and say your opponent was left with much more on the board

and your throwing next with the 150 left would you go 3 x bullseyes ? Check the video of both Bristow and Lowe below

I had to post such again VV Its good to watch and only two throws really > one each ..

What sort of game were they playing? If it was 501 and Bristow had a 150 checkout, Lowe never would have gotten to throw. And when Lowe pulls his darts, the scores above the board are Bristow 425, Lowe 550.

brenthahn,

A don't know what game they were playing but back to back bullseyes is cool Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Personally ive met John Lowe twice once he was in Scotland doing an exhibition in a club nearbye me and this was in 1979
he was in the toilet standing on my right hand shoulder and I was busy standing up for him when this drunk guy to my right side
was swaying from side to side saying he John Lowe shall be up against it tonight as many good players around here etc

I sais your talking rubbish as John Lowe is if not the best then one of the best in the World <- them days he was ..Anyhow I then felt a tap on my left shoulder and it was John Lowe himself lol smiling as he had liked what i sais and sais something to me but i couldn't understand his accent rightly ..

Anyhow was yrs later in 2005 i flew out via Easy jet from Edinburgh to Eastbourne in Southern England for a tournament at the Winter Gardens ..The guy i met up with from Eastbourne took me to the Fishermans club and signed me in and told me before hand John Lowe and Cliff Lazarenko went in there every year arounf the weekend of the tournament ..Anyhow as more folks came into the Fishermans club with several datboards on the go but especially the one main one being used for games ..i happened to go on a run and all i heard at one point from behind me was " Get the Scotsman of the board " lol i had as sais went on a run of games playing well enough and when just after i was at the bar and John Lowe came over sais to me > Scotland i sais aye John and he began to reel of these known players names from Scotland in the past like Harry Heenan from Glasgow from just before my time ..Also Rab Smith and one or two others but he never mentioned Jocky Wilsons name to me in which i sais to him John and Jocky Wilson and i then sais i remember when he beat you in the Embassy in 1982s final ..
Well his wife with blonde/ fair bobbed hair was seated nearbye and he John took a step back after i sais such
i never meant any badness but just was telling facts and i didn't at that time like how John Lowe can reel out these Scottish players names and not mention Jocky Wilsons name to me , anyhow i rectified such , having sais he seems like a good guy John Lowe and was my fav player of throwing a dart , and so straight forward his throw which he is one of the best at in that laid back style he had of throwing a dart with ease

And his 9 darter on tv was the best 9 darter of all time i reckon
which won him a cool think it was £52,000 with the finish of treble 17 treble 18 dble 18 after back to back 180s Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

But he shall be tight with money i reckon whereas when i met Jocky Wilson the last time in mid 80s he did buy several of us a drink
this was before the very first time he had asked me to play him for money likes in 77' ish and then he hadn't money as he ahd after winning them titles
way back and i was 17 yrs then , 18 yrs is the drinking age allowed in bars in Scotland and Britain , although many of us drank from 16 yrs then in pubs at 17 yrs although was much better for darts them days i remember as were always someone playing on the pub board them days unlike today

I remember then the stench of all the smoke although its better now smoking is banned from bars etc and wished it was all them yrs ago
as was a haze of smoke to collect yer darts fae the board each throw
but pubs were so much better them days

Roy Castle whom played around the pub and club circuit yrs ago had died through passive smoke .

Back to Jocky i shared a practice board alone with him for a time and have played him once for a little money
and also shared a table for a time with him in Londons Wembley Conference Centre in 1979
were the best days of my life with darts back them days

Anyhow Jocky was fun and so ordinary in which i liked
and a laugh and when i just think of darts then his face comes to my mind with that big grin he had was infectious and
he liked a good drink but it is our culture in a way sadly
and i know of many much younger die through alcohol
though in them days in the later 70s was so much better for darts

Nowadays players are a bit healthier id guess , or are they ? lol
with the not smoking inside venues, where the darts take place now is i think better for all Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Hi Gumbo,

Don't forget it was Bristow whom helped make Phil Taylor the player he is today when he took Taylor under his wing

Also don't forget the boards in the Bristow era say in the late 70s were with the thicker rounded wiring system
as well as every treble and dble and bull were all well stapled , the trebles in todays boards are that slight bit larger i reckon
without any staples or thick rounded wires

Also not much in the way of bounce outs in todays game because of the lack of such staples and thick wires
and so its easier today playing on the modern board as in the Bristow , Lowe , Jocky Wilson era Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
