HexaTarget: Genuine aid or gimmick?

By Editorial Staff 30/10/2020

The Hexa target is a simple training/practice aid based around the idea that learning to hit an ‘area’ rather than the specific segment will improve your accuracy and consistency and you can then shrink the size of the area as you improve.

There several similar aids on the market but the Hexagonal shape intrigued us as it can be easily aligned with board segments and as such can be used more flexibly than the rings type of aid. In addition, the Hexa Target is a young enterprise of the type that often innovates on behalf of players.

Each set is around £8 (with 20% going to Disability Darts) and comes with 3 concentric hexagonal targets made from a playable rubberised material, 4 pins are supplied for securing the target to the board.

We consulted ‘Coach’ who tested these extensively: He said:

“These are very simple, inexpensive aid that can be used in a variety of ways. For setting a general area that is more forgiving, for recovering a ‘lost’ skill and for specific combination board use.”

Coach adds:

“Hexa Targets seem perfect for a player who has developed the basics but wants to add some structure to their practice. If you are a rhythmic, trust type player and are will to really pile in the work these are could be a huge asset.”

There is plenty of science to back Coach's view up. For a good visual starting point, PDC Pro Matt Edgar gives an excellent walkthrough on (YouTube) Edgar TV.
