Aspinall on switch back to old darts ahead of Premier League: "Back to basics, trying to get a bit of confidence back"

Nathan Aspinall has been duly noted as having switched to a new set of darts but reversed that decision as he revealed ahead of the 2021 Premier League Darts.

Aspinall spoke to the media before the tournament gets underway on Monday and admitted it is all about confidence.

"Form's not been great. I've had some good games in there but just not been winning. As you know, I've been teetering with new darts and new equipment. A lot of stuff going on at home which is now sorted, house wise not relationship wise but that's all sorted now," said last year's finalist.

"You'll see on Monday night, I've gone back to my old darts which is something I said I wouldn't do. I've been playing with them and just a few things I've noticed with them. The grips been too long for me, I've been pulling a lot of darts. Back to basics, trying to get a bit of confidence back with my old darts and we're working on a new set again."

"I feel confident going into the Premier League to be fair."

He also told the story of how he returned to his old set with his partner, Kirsty, going to the Post Office to ship them Special Delivery so they were there the following day at the Super Series.

"Lisa (Ashton) beat me and fair play, she finished everything against me. I phoned Kirsty up, my partner and said go upstairs, go in my draw, get my darts, get them to the post office. I want them at the hotel at 9am. Cost me £30 to send them, first game back with them I had 107 average. I got beat believe it or not against Ritchie Edhouse but I just felt comfortable."
