As a newcomer to the world of domain drop catching I am wondering if there are any feasible methodologies to acquire a name before the big boys get hold of them?

I just started using pool.com, so far they have worked much better than snapnames. Granted I have limited experience in this area but perhaps others will chime in.

Depends on which gTLD you are interested in, the drop timings are known, you can bulk registering. You only pay the standard registration fees if you succeed.

I've no experience whatsoever at drop catching, but I recently grabbed an expired one-word country level ccTLD in the dating niche, which was ideal for my regional traffic, and so I'm developing that now. I just happened to be looking in the right place at the right time.

Hi caran i have been told different, that the timings are unknown as there are certain dependancies on whether there are other drop bidders, who the registrar is......?

The registrar, other drop bidders are important for very good names (manual drop catchers don't stand much of a chance for these domains) , but other domains you can try to bulk register yourself and pay basic registration fees. Exact time is not known but the time period is generally the same. For example , for .info , domains usually got deleted in a 10-15 minute period every day a few years ago.
