New darts give Snakebite improved confidence

Wright is 200/1 to win the world title

Peter Wright is in high spirits ahead of his PDC World Championships first round match against Jelle Klaasen after switching to a new set of ‘magical’ darts.

Wright used the darts at the Players Championship Finals last weekend where he posted a 103 three-dart average in his opening match before losing narrowly to Wes Newton in the second round.

“These are like magic wands,” Wright told

“They've put a few grooves in with three at the back and two at the front. I texted Lee who makes the darts and I said 'what magic dust have you put on these because these are absolutely brilliant'.

“They can do a lot of damage.”

Snakebite reached the last 16 of last year’s tournament, defeating Co Stompe and Paul Nicholson before Phil Taylor comprehensively defeated him. But the Lowestoft tungsten-chucker has improved immensely in the past 12 months, and fancies his chances this of upsetting the odds this time around.

“People say I was the only one to push him [Taylor] at the Grand Prix and I should have beaten him, although I know it was over a short format.

“Even in the worlds I had a run of really good legs against him but with these darts I will give him a better game than last time I played him.”

Wright is in the opposite half of the draw to Taylor this year and therefore would need to reach the final in order to meet The Power at Ally Pally. He is quoted at odds of 200/1 to win the world title and 66/1 to reach the final.
