Snatching is bad,snatching is bad, snatching is bad, extend that arm reach for the target and open that hand. I have been holding on to my darts too long and not opening my hand near the very end of my throw. I know better and just realized that I was not opening that hand . Concentrated a bit on that and now much,much better grouping. Strange how something you know to do and fall out of the habit and then have to correct. Should be natural for me now but competition can cause me to do these things lol.

good tip. i know i should be doing it but when i'm concentrating on so many aspects it seems to be the first thing i forget. i'm gonna need a checklist near the dartboard to remind me lol. going to try focusing more on this part of my throw tonight.

I completely agree. It's funny (peculiar not haha) how you know what needs to be done and yet so often find yourself violating the most basic of principals. Holding onto the dart too long still happens to be one of down falls. However, I have other things that need to be worked on before I start tweaking that aspect of my throw

I have trouble extending my arm fully as my darts tend to go in the 5's. I use a pretty short stroke and that seems to work for me.

I tend to hold it for too long when I'm not focusing enough and can feel that it's going to pot before I have thrown it.

holding on too long for me usually ends up going low, too soon and away it goes up.

That just goes to prove that were all different and need to find what works best for ourselves. Smile
