Robert Thornton

Robert Thornton winner of the 2015 Paddy Power World Grand Prix is the Scottish-born brave darter who stunned the world beating Micheal Van Gerwen to claim the Grand Prix title in Dublin. The Triple Major Winner, including the Winmau World Masters wins in 2007, and the UK Open in 2014 beating Phil Taylor puts him shoulder-to-shoulder with two other Scottish darting greats in Les Wallace and Jocky Wilson, who were the only other Scottish-born players to have lifted the oldest of darts major titles.

Robert’s stellar rise up the World Rankings includes Premier League appearances making the Tripe Major Winner one of the most feared performers in darts today, and when Robert needed a set of signature darts made to his exact needs he came to us at Red Dragon, and who better to describe them than Robert himself:

‘Since being with Red Dragon I’ve won 2 Major Titles and been in the Premier League, so like me,they are making a real name for themselves in the world of darts. The darts I wanted were based on an old set I had years ago, but I never imagined just how good Red Dragon’s engineers could make the Extra Heavy Knurled Grip, as even I was shocked when I first used them as like me they are so uniquely Scottish – so not just any darts but brave darts.”

Clearly you don’t need to be Scottish to enjoy the absolutely amazing grip and balance Robert’sdarts offer, as you’ll find it near impossible to better this triple major winners arrows.
