GARY ANDERSON reckons darts is going to get more exciting…thanks to more BULL.
The Flying Scotsman has been trying out the new PDC dartboards which were used at last week’s World Cup in Frankfurt.
The new Unicorn Eclipse HD2 board has 14 per cent more room to hit the bullseye thanks to thinner wire – and World Champ Ando believes exhibition-type finishes could be on.
Ando flies out to New Zealand for the next leg of the World Series followed by Shanghai and Tokyo for a month out of the UK.
But he is excited by the new boards. He said: “I think we could see more players going for the spectacular 160 and 170 finishes.
“Who knows even the cocky ones might try two or three bullseye checkouts like an exhibition. But Unicorn have certainly worked hard on the new boards to increase scoring power.
“It won’t change my game to be honest. I play my own way, I don’t go for the spectacular, I just like to get the job done.”
Anderson was also impressed by his own new range including Icon special edition darts for being a double world champion and a board with his face on it.
He added: “You can now actually throw darts at me, literally. Unicorn have tried to do a more unique, personalised range which is a great compliment.
“You can even choose the colours of the numbers round the board. I’d go for green, for Hibs of course!”
It’s been revealed that the England players are taking darts very seriously in their spare time at Euro 2016.
Joe Hart and James Milner took orders from their team-mates to make sure they had the correct type and make of darts to take.
The England backroom staff believe that the squad playing darts is better than them being in different rooms on Xbox or other video games.
