    anyone use "sure grip sleeves"? some player showed up the other night with them, he had recently picked them up off a-zdarts.com to try out b/c he was losing his grip/feel. I don't know how much they add in weight, guessing its pretty negligible(sp.) personally I would rather just buy new darts if the barrel is too worn down to get a good feel.

    Not sure what they are, but if they are like a rubber sleeve that goes around the barrel, my first set of darts had them. I didn't like it very much, it slid around the barrel sometimes so my grip wasn't very consistent. I ended up taking them off after awhile.

    I marked rosin or chalk even though what I really do is lick my fingertips. I guess that is a form of rosin? So do not get offended if I do not shake your hand at the beginning of the game. Win or loose I will at the end of the game.

    Here is one… have you ever notice how many people do not wash their hands after going the bathroom? Now do you understand why I do not shake hands at the beginning of a match?

    To qualify my 'no' answer:

    John Lowe says it all on his website, but switching to Titanium coated barrels eliminated the need to slick my fingers. He was right.

    However, if it is very dry and my fingers are slippery I will sometimes use rosin to help with grip -- but that only at home becuase I have not had this problem in competition.

    I keep a little towel clipped to my belt loop, I wet it every now and then to keep it moist, but not wet. And usually give my hands a wipe before every throw. To me, I have built in gripping agents in my finger(tips), in the form of fingerprints. I just never let them get gunked up with dirt, chalk, or grease. I did chalk for them for a while, but felt I lost control of the feel.

    I know some one who use to toe the oche, stare at the board, and wipe his cheek with his fingertips. Like he was rubbing his cheek. I am not sure if it had anything to do with throwing or if it was a intentional routine that he would go through before his threw, but he did every time. I will have to watch and see if he still does it the next time we are at a tournament together. I will also ask him what it is all about.
