Arm position & aiming, etc.
I'm right-handed and left-eye-dominant. That being said, I aim and draw back similar to Phil Taylor and other 'lefteyes'.

I'm constantly working on form, and doing things the same way every single time. It's definitely a challenge.

Anyway, when my arm is at 90 degrees and my upper arm parallel/near-parallel to the floor, my hand blocks my view of the target.

How does one compensate for this? Forearm length reduction surgery or stretching my neck, a-la Thai village women (with the gold rings), are out of the question.

- 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.

My match darts:  22gm Bulls White Pegasus, intermediate nylon/Target Carbon Ti Pro stems, Rhino standard flights.

I have the very same thing happening in my throw. I find it's more annoying when throwing at the bottom of the board.

What I have been doing in spite of this is to throw through my target ... which translates in this case that part of my hand is following through to the spot on the dart board.

This is my aiming mechanism.

I don't think its a good idea to block the vision of what your aiming at, if you have to aim with something then you will need to adjust so you can see your target lined up with what your aiming with. so if you aim with the point then line that up with your target.
