    What are your thoughts on how to develop a consistent dart throw?

    I recently saw that this was a popular search and before posting my own thoughts thought I'd post the question here to see your input.

    I was thinking about this a little and decided to toss this out there: practice practice practice but what kind of practice? 100@ comes to mind first and foremost as it forces you to work on being consistant.

    I struggle with drills. But I do force myself when I'm having inconsistency problems. I personally am a believer in playing games with opponents at or above your level. So my Moto is play and play some more

    I'd suggest it is actually both that you need and also think you should look at both as a growth opportunity.

    Your opponent isn't your enemy. They are your best friend in the world, who is there to push you to be better.

    I totally agree with playing someone better than you. It's a great way to challenge yourself. It can get frustrating if you do it too long at one time, but that person may also be able to notice if there's a "hitch" developing in your stroke and possibly help fix it before it becomes permanent. I feel like I may be struggling with a bit of a hitch right now. My stroke just feels off. I'm going to set up my go pro on a tripod to record myself throwing for a bit. Then I'm going to slow down the video and try to find any hops or jerks in my stroke and see if I can work on fixing it.

    Drills are great, but if you're practicing bad form, it's not doing you any good. It's hard to be consistent if your stroke isn't consistent.

    I have a app that I found called Darts Practice Free. I have an android phone so not sure about apple. It is all 501 but you can use it to score games, play against an online opponent, or play against a bot. It has some good challenging settings. It's levels are based on a PPD average range. For instance I believe level 5 is an opponent of 15-20 ppd average. It's usually in the 17.2 range I've found. I use it a lot when I don't have a buddy to play against.

    I'd like to add that videoing your throw and watching it, comparing to pros, analyzing etc is a good thing to do. I noticed some small issues with my throw that I do not normally do and am working to correct them. Not sure how I started doing it, nor how I convinced myself it was my way of throwing but as soon as I gave it thought I knew it was BS and began righting the issue.

    Funny how the mind works though.
