Snap. Barney is so slick and relaxed. My throw is very similar apart from I throw straight away where as Barney aims. If that makes sense. But so jealous of Barneys action it's unreal.
Oh and the fact that my outcome is no where near as good as Barneys! lol

Of this PL group, definitely RvB.

All time, though, I would go with Chris Mason.

I don't want to hi-jack your thread as you had asked specifically about current PL players.

As you indicate, Mason's throw is quite normal. I have always liked his simple, smooth, efficient throw. My admiration for his mechanics goes back many, many years.

Anyway, like I said of your list without a doubt RvB.

barney lewis or anderson each one ace in its own way.barney because it seems more stable than the other two-lewis because the easy of throw and grouping but is the kind of throw that looks like you arm would get nackerd after a bit also some times go all over the shop-anderson because its so easy straight back and fire seems perfect for lining up but also has the problem of over or under pitching the dart.i would say it is probaly better to have taylors throw because i notice with these 3 its so easy they dont have the concetration like taylor which i think is the real diffrence.

I gotta go with Adie when he is on form, such a natural. Barney would be a close second.
