    When you paste an image into the forum you should see the options like what I just pasted in ;) If you don't see 'Insert every image as a....' and then the images below and the option for thumbnail or full image then something isn't right. I jusst opened the images from your email and 'snipped' them, copied to my clipboard and pasted into the forum post I was editing.

    I may have to do a 'how to' for the forums since this is a pretty new feature (and a cool one :) )

    Nice pic! Rare to see one so evenly thrown but I love the picture -- I take a lot that way too with the flights in focus :)

    Although I have one makeup match still to go, I finally started to hit perfect scores again in last night's last match of the season (singles dart league - five sets, best of five legs). Including warm-up, I had three 180's and a 171. Now if I could only hit my outs more efficiently... *Sigh...*

    D94D6C4E-8A95-49BB-B59E-9509366FFCAF.jpeg First ton80 with the custom kennyG darts. These were machined in mild steel as a prototype and I bored them out to accept tungsten plugs from the Ultracore by Unicorn. They weigh in at 23g fully suited and are a rather long dart. They fly very straight and level though! Keep an eye open on the forum for the next iteration of these darts. Until then thanks to @kennyg for a fine foray into the custom darts realm!

    Yeah. It is fun! One of the practice concepts from the DPC is practicing 9 dart sets. The idea is kind of like breaking a chess game into phases(opening, middle game and ending). So in a 501 game(first 9, get to an out, double). So the last set for that was a Gary Anderson 140,180,140. Had to come back to reopen our restaurant so I had to quit on that!

    I’ve gotten back to playing consistently again :). Glad to say I throw 180’s relatively consistently. When I say that it’s relative lol 3-4 a session. I’ll get some pictures to share. I remember when 1-3 a month made me happy :).

    Being a player is not so much about performance. I hope someday to hear that you’re able to play in comfort again Erik.

    7576FCBB-8B5F-4569-8FBC-746B8A754515.jpeg This happened today. I’ve gotten into a routine with the string to help me keep my forearm vertical and the darts straight. As you can see once in a while it happens! Cheers and happy Hump day!

    Tell me what you did. Most of the time I’m going from my iPhone to post. I usually email to myself first to handle resizing and then I just upload the image.

    LOL in this case I just used my PC to snip the image, rotate it 90 degrees and paste it back. It's just that it was rotated 90 degrees. Might be the way you took the pic
