Not long ago, I had a discussion with my sponsor, Monster Barrels Design, about
Hades II prototypes (click to enlarge)
updates to my Hades signature dart. Using ooVoo, we held a video conference where we talked about the changes and the placement of those changes. Pictures were drawn and held up to the webcam, I’d make a comment, the drawing would be revised, I made last comments and that was it. After much anticipation, I finally received the prototype soft tip and steel tip barrels to test. I think the barrels look very nice and the craftsmanship is superb. Here’s a sneak peek at the Hades II 22gm steel tip model. I’ll post pictures of the other weights and models soon.
I switched to using L-Style flights, shafts, and tips earlier this year (2011). After the switch, I began racking up numerous tournament wins and high finishes in both steel tip and soft tip events. Highlights of my year includes finishing 3rd place in the soft tip Pro AA singles division at the Bullshooter World Championship and finishing #11 in the national rankings of the American Darts Organization. Without a doubt, L-Style’s excellent products played a major role in my consistent finishes and overall success in 2011.

How do you grip your dart? Do you grip it at the balance point? Grip it near the front? Grip it near the rear? How many fingers do you use in your grip? Do you touch the point? Have you ever wondered how other top players grip their dart? Continue reading
I often notice people who throw with crushed flights. By crushed, I mean that the flight is not fully opened. They look more like an ‘x’ than a ‘+’. Continue reading
