Dart Equipmentt the game
1. Darts in the store
The darts provided in the store are called "house darts". Players who do not have personal darts can use the house darts in the store to enjoy the fun!

2. Purchase a personal dart set
Many enthusiasts have dart sets of their own. After becoming familiar with the game, you can also purchase a personal dart set based on your liking. There is a mind-blowing variety of dart products to choose from, so it is recommended to go to the store to try out the equipment and select the design you prefer.
3. About the dart parts
Tip
Tip refers to the plastic front end of the dart that sticks into the dartboard. Because the part is easily bent and twisted, it is best to carry a spare tip around.
Barrel
The barrel is the part where players hold the dart, which determines the dart's center of gravity. The barrel is an essential part of the dart, so it is crucial to pay attention to the barrel's weight and make sure it is easy to grip when purchasing.
Shaft
The shaft is used to adjust the overall weight of the dart. Medium length dart is more suitable for novice players in general.
Flight
The flight serves as the wing for the dart that stabilizes the dart in flight. A bigger wing flight is better suited for novice players.
4. Where to buy your own darts
Darts are available at dart bars, supply stores, and online shops. It is recommended that first-time buyers go to the store in person to try out the darts and seek advice from the store staff.
How to hold the darts
1. The way of holding the darts is called the grip
In addition to the standard grip, the following will include various types of grips. Give them a try and find out what works best for you.
Two-finger grip
Easy to release.
Three-finger grip
This grip is the standard way to hold the dart and is most suitable for beginners: hold the dart with your index finger and thumb, and use your middle finger to support the dart lightly. It is not only easy to release the dart but also relatively stable.
Four-finger grip
With high level of stability.

2. Grip position
To have the dart thrown to the targeting position accurately, keeping the balance of the dart is the key.
Place the dart on your index finger and find the balance spot.
Use the thumb to support from above.
Apply the middle finger to support lightly.

Throwing the darts
The action of aiming and releasing the darts, also known as “Throw”, consists of 4 steps:
“Setup”, “Pull Back”, “Release”, and “Follow Through.”
Set up
Preparing to throw the darts: face the dartboard directly and aim with both eyes. Try to keep the "target", "dart", and "your eye" aligned in a straight line.
Pull
back
The movement of drawing back the dart: move the forearm backwards from the elbow as if drawing a folding fan shape. Place the palm naturally facing up to keep the wrist in a relaxed position.
Release
Throwing and releasing the dart: throw with the strength as if releasing a paper airplane and set loose fingers all at once. If the fingers let loose not soon enough, the dart will not be able to move stably.
Follow
through
The action of straightening the forearm after releasing the dart: extend the hand and point to the aiming direction.
About the game
Stance
The standing position when throwing darts is also called "Stance". A stable stance can elevate the stability of the dart.
Basic stance
The dart-throwing stance is different from baseball and bowling, and the foot on the same side of the handedness must be in front. Right-handed players must position their right foot forwards while left-handed players the other way around.
Do not step over the throw line
Stand behind the throw line when throwing darts; stepping over the line is considered a foul. Players must bear this in mind!
Middle stance
This stance makes it easy to throw the dart and is best for novice players. Face directly toward the dartboard with the front leg turning around 45 degrees. The front leg should carry most of the bodyweight while the back leg slightly on the tiptoes. The weight distribution ratio between front and back legs is about 9:1.
Be mostly on the front leg and only slightly on the toe of the back leg.
