Robert Thornton is one of the true icons of darts and a fan favourite the world over. The Thorn has been around for many many years and his smooth throwing style has not changed since day one.

The Scotsman has had a stellar career to date, taking major titles in both the PDC and BDO. Robert is also one of the few players to beat both Phil Taylor and Michael van Gerwen in major finals, doing this in the 2012 UK Open and the 2015 World Grand Prix.

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 two 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.”
