Justin Smith Signs With Quantum Darts
Quantum Darts are absolutely thrilled to announce the signing of Justin “The Bearded Dragon” Smith and welcome him on to our team of high calibre dart players.
Located roughly an hour and a half from our Swansea HQ, in Cardigan, Wales, United Kingdom Justin is a respected character in his local darts fraternity and has had significant exposure to darts events over the last 5 years, starting with his first appearance on the PDC development tour back in 2015.
Some more notable achievements/highlights during this time, including those from Justins perspective, where he was able to draw the most valuable experiences from:
- Beating Kim Huybrechts 6-1 on the pro tour back in December 2019
- Qualifying for the UK open reaching the last 128 back in March 2020
- Reaching the last 16 on the first day of Q-school 2020
- Reaching various semi/quarter finals in the last couple of years on the challenge/development tours
- Reaching the last 16 of the youth world championship in 2018
- Playing (and winning some days) on the Modus icons of darts league 2020
Now aged 23, Justin has reached an age where he is too old to play on the development tour, and is now focusing on the challenge tour events, hoping to gain a tour card at Q-school 2021, where he can really push on and achieve his dreams of playing on the pro tour.
Having our backing now gives Justin the chance to push on and play to his true ability and keep improving his game as is clearly evident in his results over the last year. We are proud to have Justin using our equipment and he has our full support going forwards, however we can be of assistance.
Justins darts are still in development and he is trailing the second phase of his barrel at the moment, having made some minor functional tweaks to the original design. When he is 100% happy, we will be releasing them for general sale and this is expected to be late September to early October as it stands, but we will be able to confirm this nearer the time.
