I have decided to take the number ring off my dart board. I have been throwing like this for a couple of weeks now. I like it a great deal, and I was surprised a bit that it didn't slow me down too much. I have long "known" where each number was on the board, but this is the first time where I have needed to know "without looking." The board is more pleasing to the eye this way and I can rotate it between throws (if I wanted to) with no hassle.
