    Good for you! I better get off my tail and start improving instead of looking for traction. I’m still searching for a hold that does what I want it to. In baseball there was a term “knuckling up” for holding the bat with knuckles lined up and, several terms in golf. I’m looking for a hold that helps isolate only the flexion and extension of the wrist joint. Then I have to make it instinct. Birds feet are closed tightly when at rest so that they don’t fall off branches. I guess I kinda want that level of repetition on the darts.

    Hooley dooley, you bloody champion. I have only ever hit three double bulls once. I was ecstatic to hit five points in one throw yesterday. Mate, I give you 36 for that effort. Sensational.

    Now to check your change in ranking and get busy...

    Okay, so my date for meeting my goals came at the end of last month, and I didn't meet one of them. Got close to some, but no biscuit.
    What I can report though is that my darts have improved enough to be noticed. I have scaled back on the practice games and concentrated on big doubles and triples, and playing some 501.
    We played finals on the weekend and I pegged 153, my highest out so far. I am on the lipstick, or there about's most darts, and what is pleasing is that my line is good. I have been on the practice board at home, the champions choice with smaller doubles and triples and was playing RTW on doubles, not moving until I had got two darts on each number. For some reason the 8's wouldn't come, took me 10 or 15 minutes to move on. We drew on 9 games all in the quarter final, team 801 to finish. How glad I was to be left 16 to win the game, not get knocked out and get to play semi on tomorrow night. The practice is paying off...
    But I will get my goal numbers, just not sure how long it will take.

    I found the Champions Choice type boards could tick me off and I had to dial them back a little or use therm on and off again. But some get great use out of them. Either way, sounds like you are making good progress!

    Good show! Practice can get to be a drag sometimes so changing your routine is alway a good idea! I feel short also because I had hoped to be in the 400 club this month. I made my goals in Bulls and Rtw but still seem to be just off in the others. 153 checkout though! Nice job! That’s what the practice is for! Keep it up and good luck!

    Nice going! Ticked it up a couple notches. I’m stuck on my doubles games. The BHRTW is a quick way to get up the ranking. That’s my next goal!
