Still not as bad the Taylor/Manley World Final from a few years back.

Some fool put £100,000 on Phil Taylor to win the Worlds this year at 1/50

Michael Smith dumped Taylor out in the second round :lol:

Phil Taylor going for the fist bump with Anderson & getting totally ignored. Brilliant.

At least this final is delivering the goods though.

Anderson's had about six on floor, never seen anything like that 180 bounce out before.

Anderson winning the 9th 3-2 was just incredible.

Best match since Taylor-Barney :datass:

Chisnall instead of Thornton for the Premier League, not sure if want.

Sorry for the Thread Bump!

Because of various lockdowns I decided to get back into my Darts. Started again regularly back in October/November. Before that I hadn't thrown for about ten years.

I'm slowly increasing my 3 Dart Average to high 60s, so nothing spectacular still.
Here's a screenshot from when I played the computer on the Russ Bray app this morning - no maximums today. Only two so far this year in fact!

We've got a cool dart set up at work too, for lunch time / after work games:

I recently upgraded my old Red Dragon Razor edge darts to these Harrow Swarms too, they're incredibly grippy and you can really feel yourself propelling them with some conviction.

These were my old darts. Red Dragon Razor Edge 20g.
Image

And my new Harrow Swarm 21g:
Image

And I use L-Style rotating stems in medium, with L-Style standard flights. Really good combo. Having the moulded flights at perfect right angles really makes them fly well.

And we splashed out on a fancy number ring for the old board at work. Very flash :toot:

Anyway - darts :wub: :wub:

I love watching the darts, but I haven't played since I was a kid...where in the pub I kept accidently throwing the darts into the wall. :fp:

I had a soft tip dartboard at home however, which I was rather good at (100+ no problem!), and yet for whatever reason I never made the jump up to the real thing.

Amazing that since this thread was made back in 2011, the BDO is now no more; 'SUPERSTARS' like Taylor, Raymond van Barneveld, John Part...and Nicholson have all retired; the walk on girls have been banned; and Sid Waddell's sadly passed away.
