Shot Darts

I cant seem to get consistent
Guys I might be getting crazy. The more I play with only one set the worse I get with it. Last week I played pretty well with my wolframs hit some pretty good scores finishes and all that it felt good after a long time. Come this week I couldnt throw them very well (I didnt play darts for a week though), (under 40 average in practice legs) and I wanted them to have more grip, soooo I reached for my carreras c3 last friday (which to say the truth I havent gave them the chance they deserve to win me over), and boom hit an 180, and had a 50 average in the practice legs, I took them to the league that night and BOOM I nailed a pretty good player who smoked me last week, I hit with them very consistently (2 consecutive 100s and some 85s). The next day though (saturday) I could not hit anything with them, the grip which I liked the other day seemed to be an obstacle, so I reached for the wolframs and played a little better. Am I losing my mind? Now the good news, I might have reached some conclusions about what I like about my darts and what not. I really like the 25 gram weight, 26 seems too heavy at least for now, I have some doubts if I would throw better with 24 gram darts but I cant stand the balance of my purists. Also one problem I noticed is that I dont grip the darts the same way every time, so I am thinking of buying one more set come Christmas. One set that really stand out so far is this https://www.unicorn-darts.com/range/dart...lobal.aspx

This dart is a mix of two barney darts (which I want to try like hell btw) phase 3 razor grip and in the middle phase 2, its 95% tungsten too and costs 27 pounds from pure darts, whats not to like. Also the player that uses them (Razma) hit a 9 darter with them, and I noticed his playstyle, stance is similar to mine (we are both 1,96 meter tall too lol) I find this dart may help me get more consistent cause it doesnt have such a steep tapper which some times make my finger slip, and it has this perfect middle section which is where I put my thumb, so it almost gurantees same finger placement every time. Thats option number 1, also I am having thoughts of trying some 24 gram darts like sky pros 6 from red dragon which seem very nice.

One last thing in the pub I go and play, the people who own the pub and play darts for decades tell me not to worry about consistency yet cause I have only been playing since March and tell me just to stick with one set of darts, and not to move my body when I throw the darts, oh and not to think things too much just SHOOT. What do you guys say, do you like the Razma darts? What should I do about my consistency?

Out of all the stuff you typed this is the part that sticks out for me. You've only been playing since March? You shouldn't be worrying about anything yet. It takes months and years to get really good at darts. Even at the very top levels there is MASSIVE amounts of inconsistency. Thinking of Lewis, he can shoot an 85 average one match and 115 the next over a best of 11.

Just keep playing. Get online and play as many best of 11's as you can. Do this day in, day out and in 3 months compare some of your worst games to what they are today. You'll see the worst matches getting better.

But always keep in mind, darts is incredibly hard. You might of already learned the basic's but it will take a LONG time to develop into the player you imagine you want to be.

Ya ,,,and I'm old and getting older everyday,,,,,,,,,I just introduced the game of darts to my girlfriend a few months ago,,,when I took up darts again,,,when she started she could not hit the face of the target area with 3 darts in a row thrown,,,My girlfriend has Rheumatoid arthritis and almost legally blind,,,she has no depth of field perception ,,,,,

Now days by using the handicap system built in to the software on the dartboard she is very competitive,,, If I don't play well she beats me all the time,,,she has progressed to the point of getting nice darts that suit her throw ,,, like the 14gm Bunting soft tips,,and the 19gm Andy Hamilton soft tips,,,

Her grip and joints change on a daily basis,,she has good days and bad days,,,and will throw a different set accordingly,,,,,

I am very proud of her progress,,,

That's good to hear! reminds me of when I started back in 2011, my arm was so weak I could not even hit the board. Had to spend some time just pretending I was throwing the darts until I built up some strength and co-ordination, then it still took weeks or months before I could get anywhere near the 20 segment.

Glad she is enjoying it! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Good for her and you, makes it fun and really thats what darts are about. So how old are you? just asking if you don't mind. I got a feeling there are people beside me in their 60's here and I know that George is in his 70's.

I have the Wolframs and some days they fly for me and others, let's just say they have a mind of their own. But, they always come back to my hand and they work better the next day. I know it's not common advice but when they are not working I grab another set that want to play and I use them. Seems to work for me at least.
But, it's all about practicing and getting that comfortable throw down so it feels right with whatever I throw
