SwitchBlade Goes Pro: Darts World’s ‘Drill of the Day’ Gets The Go Darts Pro Treatment.

In response to a Darts World article, and player demand, Go Darts Pro have turned SwitchBlade into a fully fledged part of their training program:

Just because Darts World has been going for almost 48 years does not mean were not bang up to date with what dart players need and want! As soon as Isolation, and LockDown, started to hit home, we asked our resident ‘Coach’ and our friends at A.I.M: to help us with practise tips, structure and some fresh thoughts to keep you all entertained.

Coach has been using a drill, with elite players, for several years but he freshened it up and it seems to have caught on! Players then began to petition Anders. a founder of GDP, to include the game. The Go darts pro guys developed the new game speedily and its now ready to go!

Coach is particularly pleased that the drill proved popular at the current times and that its was GDP who took it on:

Mikko was Unique wonderfully intelligent & passionate, about all things darts, we agreed on almost everything. To have one of Our drills included in Go Darts Pro is extremely rewarding.

Mikko Laiho was the co founder of GDP and one of the best darts practise experts we have known. ‘Coach’ added:

That it was players, and readers of Darts World, who flagged it to Anders is the icing on the cake.

So check out the article that started it all here and then head on over to GoDartsPro.com and play the challenge version. Either way your sure to find your switching fluidity improves and you can add a new drill to your daily routine!

Another ‘Drill Of The Day’ is coming soon!

SwitchBlade Goes Global! Darts World Fuels Demand For New Practice Drill!

Darts World, and our friends at A.I.M:, have been doing our bit to keep darters occupied in during the Covid-19 Lockdown. Little did we know that one of our, ‘Darting Isolation‘, drills, SwitchBlade would begin to get a life of its own!

After its appearance last week SwitchBlade proved popular with readers who then began requesting that our friends at popular practise platform Go Darts Pro, turn the game into one of their challenges. Site operator (and co-founder) Anders got in touch and sought permission to use the game.

A.I.M: were more than happy to see a drill that they have used, with elite players, for many years gain a new lease of life. After a couple of minor tweaks Go Darts Pro have moved through the development stage and are nearly ready to feature the game.

There is more work to do and perhaps a surprise too for those who have been playing it! DW will keep you posted and let you know when you can play:
