Darts darts dartplayer SEWA-Darts

Can I just say 'wow'? Seems to fit for me anyway. The new WINMAU Stratos Dual Core soft tip darts arrived today and I have to admit that I am very impressed! WINMAU continues to produce premium darts for the serious dart player and enthusiast alike and these are going to make a real splash on the dart scene if you ask me!

First off, these are bigger than other soft tip darts I've tested and played with. They are, in fact, very much like any standard steel tip dart in size and feel yet only weigh in at 20 grams (the ones I have anyway but they come in 18 also - for electronic/soft darts and heavier weights for steel players). This is a major plus in my book as someone who's tossed steel darts since 1977 and never quite got the feel for the much smaller and lighter soft tip darts. These bridge that gap nicely and could easily be used as a 'conversion' dart for anyone like me playing in both worlds.

[​IMG]The fit and feel of these darts is superb with excellent grip characteristics, very nice balance and a strike in the board that is solid and well placed. I'd call these some very well thought out darts and frankly, am glad to see someone making darts like this!

If you've not taken a look at WINMAU's collection of soft darts lately, I encourage you to do so as they are a real contender in the electronic darts world! Not to mention they've been around a long long time and have tons of experience making great darts.

You won't be disappointed.
I've been thinking allot about practice and why we shoot certain practice games or routines and recently came across an old post here that really sums it up well for me (and I wrote it 11 years ago!)....in response to a post by user Taechon I wrote: In my opinion, for what its worth, {when shooting 100 darts at the 20's] the [score of] 107 represents your low end results and the 151 represents your current high. Both are decent scores, but the 151 suggests a capability of very high quality darts. The 107 suggests you are human and cannot always play at 100%.

The problem with darts is that we are human and we cannot throw with the precision of a rifle -- which still isn't perfect. When I was in the Marine Corps I used to be able to put rounds down range with a very high degree of accuracy, but that didn't mean that I hit the same holes each time -- though I could often 'keyhole' rounds. But that's with a rifle which is far more likely to be nearly perfect -- when compared to a dart!

With darts there are so many factors involved that even the very best dart players shoot their darts in more of a shotgun pattern -- albeit Phil Taylor's pattern is extremely tight. Thus being human, we will have good rounds and not so good rounds.

The 100 darts practice is just that, practice, and does not represent what we will do in competition, it only provides us with a means to improving our throwing mechanics, our grouping.

Think of it like choking a shotgun -- we are trying to choke it up as tight as we can, but sometimes wires, flights, barrels, elbows, shirts, smoke and who knows what else, gets in the way. So we just have to keep banging away until we get that group to the size of a quarter and try to keep it there.

Lastly, if you just happen to have a poor run it could be related to focus, luck, or just being human. It's the good runs that I focus on because they tell me what my potential is. That is better then an average in my opinion, because an average doesn't...
  • Can anybody give me information on this snooker dart board game. It's called SNOOK.dart. dBeen on Google and eBay but cannot find much as it could be a prototype that never went on general sale. It would be nice to have some information on this and if any value at all. Thanks Dave.l
