Today was a great day for disc golf at Irvine park.
The Blade Five dartboards Technology
Here at Metro Darts we like to be on top of the cutting edge stuff.
The new Blade 5 is just that it has a bigger scoring area 9mm in the doubles
and 6mm in the triples, that means a 14% less web wire surface area.
The blade 5s have gone down to a 60degree angle from a 90 degree angle with the blade 4s,
the wire itself has gained strength by 20% and new bull has a carbon diffusion technology for
that ultra -hard surface allowing points to move into that bull easly.
The one thing i like is the Rota - lock wheel system it helps me get the board to a perfect balance and it screws into the back of the board with ease with three wheels! I have been stocking Winmau for seventeen
years now an i think they are the best boards on the market at a cost of 79$ a fare price and something every home or office and yes even pubs should have !
Well here at metro darts we always say we leave the bull to you!
Today I would like to share some helpful tips when your thinking of buying that new set of darts!!
When you walk in the shop you can be a little overwhelmed with all the darts in stock!
The games of darts, there are many, we will cover but a few. Generally speaking, you can play any of the games we will discuss on a bristle dartboard using steel tip darts. Electronic boards have many games built-in, but the games vary with the particular board you are playing on. There are some specialty bristle boards, for instance we sell a board that is laid out to play poker with darts. There are also some dartboards that have a standard board on one side and a specialty board on the other side. But enough about dartboards, let’s play some games!
First is probably the most popular, the game called ‘01
To the left is a dartboard. Specifically, this is a Blade 4 dartboard from Winmau. There are many types of dartboards and many different materials can be used. You could draw a dartboard on a piece of cardboard and throw pencils at it. Some say the original attempts at making a dartboard were to use a slice of elm tree and paint lines on it. It is said to keep the elm fresh the pub owner needed to douse it with the night’s spillage. Modern dartboards for soft tip darts are made of varied synthetic material. In researching material for this blog, I came across a site that said the playable area for soft tip darts was larger than for steel tip darts by 1 and 3/4 of an inch. The article did not seem correct to me so I measured the three dartboards I own and behold there were differences… Hah, the boards are a Winmau Pro SFB, a Sportscraft Unicorn electric dartboard, and an M-Y dartboard that was purchased for two dollars at a yard sale. The M-Y and the Pro SFB boards have a playable area of 13 and ¼ inches, the Unicorn has a playable area of 13 and ¾ inches.
