I heard the commentator say last night that Webster was scoring way above his normal average and of course we hadReyes breaking the record for the highest ever losing %.If it was just a few top players then I'd take your point but it's near every player playing their best ever darts, uncanny. Your point about raising their game against MVG is understandable tbf.Even to the naked eye the treble bands look massive.I think Hearn has pulled a trick like he did at the snooker. Take a look at the double/treble bands yourself and see what you think!
"it's near every player playing their best ever darts"...
you clearly didn't watch Kevin Painter, Simon Whitlock, Adrian Lewis, Stephen Bunting, Alan Norris, Jonny Clayton etc etc etc

Do I need to have a bet or even worse a losing bet to have an opinion, kenbo?It has already been stated above that the wires are indeed thinner. If the boards are the same size they have always been butthe wires are thinner, does this make the double and treble bands easier or harder to hit, iyo?
The wires have been thinner for at least 5 years, probably longer.

You are all fools. Barry Hearn has put magnets behind the big trebles and the doubles. If a p1ssed bloke threw his watch on stage from row M it would likely hit treble 20.(Unless it was a plastic Casio digital effort).

No.I'm saying the double and treble bands are now bigger and easier to hit. Someone else said the wires have become thinner.That would make sense.I've also said a few times now that the players are getting better too. This how ever doesn't take away from the point that the boards are now playing easier than before.
this, boards playing easier + players practising more
