There are many different grips to choose from.
Take the time to experiment with all of these grips. You can help your game tremendously by finding the perfect grip for you and your style of darts. However, try to avoid frequently switching back and forth too quickly. Take a few weeks to practice it and stick to your new grip. Also, make sure to use the same darts when testing grips – different shafts and flights can make a big difference in your throw. And always remember there isn’t a right or wrong grip so experiment and have fun with it! Here are a few different grips to try out:
Four fingers and thumb. Achieved by resting smallest finger on top or bottom of the dart tip for maximum guidance in acceleration and touch with placement. However this grip adds one more touch point to the dart and can cause the throw to get away from you.
Three fingers and thumb. This is a basic grip that gives you a lot of control over the dart during acceleration and placement adjustments. The third finger on the dart barrel does increase your chances of a misfire.
Two fingers and thumb. This allows for fewer fingers to get in the way of a great throw while sacrificing some control. Consider moving the thumb slightly behind the center weight of the dart for more control.
One finger and thumb. Similar to how you would hold a writing pen, this grip minimizes your touch points at the expense of control over the dart. This style of grip can be very effective however it may take some time to get used to.
