r/Darts Weekly Challenge #14

This week's challenge is as follows:

Easy Challenge: Checkout 54 in 3 darts or less.
Medium Challenge: Checkout 74 in 3 darts or less.
Hard Challenge:  Checkout 121 in 3 darts or less.

This week I did my darnedest to incorporate the 14 segment in each of the challenges.  I was only able to do so with the first two, but I was so happy with my route to the hard challenge that I don't mind at all.  Here is how it all went down:

The easy challenge was a typical S14, S20 (missing the D20 inside), D10.  I was throwing my 20 gram Halex tungsten darts.  I like them a lot and do not throw them enough, for sure:

The medium challenge started with a miss.  I was going for the 42, but hit the 14 instead with the first dart, leaving 60, which I took out in a pleasing enough manner with S20, D20. I was throwing my 15 gram Aviators:

The Hard challenge came within a few minutes of hitting the medium and I could not be happier.  I wanted to go 42, 51, D14, incorporating the 14-wedge not once, but twice.  However, my first dart missed into the 27, leaving 94, which I took out with 54, D20, for a treble-treble-double finish.  Could not be more pleased. I was throwing the 18 gram brass Lloydesque darts that I have no idea what they really are:
