3 Things to consider when buying a dartboard.

3 Things to consider when buying a dartboard.

Here are just a few things to think about.

The viper Shaft

The viper Shaft
(img)
This is the viper shaft from Winmau , nylon shaft and aluminum top were the flight connects to the shaft. This shaft is very popular because it incorporates the best of both worlds . The shaft does not need o-rings the nylon is very stable with any barrel on the market out there. The colors are black white and red. The shaft comes in med and short lengths . And is very light so the speed of the dart moves faster to the board. The  width of the shaft is beefy but allows good air movement around barrel of the shaft.  How would I rate the shaft 1-10 8  sizes 1-10 9  colors 1-10 7 it needs more colors out there .  All and all this is a great dart shaft for anybody use.

Tips for Pub Play

Tips for Pub Play

When planning to play at a pub, there are a few things you might want to think about before you go.

The DARTBOARD SURROUNDS

The DARTBOARD SURROUNDS
# The  DARTBOARD   SURROUNDS
In the world of darting we have the dart board set-up . We ask ourselves what really is the most important part of the equation is it what we play on or is it what protects the wall after we miss the board after that  arrant shot? Well if you were to ask two different people the same question we probably  get two different  answers . I think if you were to ask me each part of the set-up is important but I think I would want to protect that wall at all cost!  There are many ways you can protect a wall  with a backboard of wood , or maybe wood with a carpet coating or maybe just having a cork backboard. Well lets look at what I carry in the shop it is called surrounds  made by Winmau these surrounds are very cool and come in many colors and sizes they have logos on them or they come plain . The sizes are wide to very slender all of them are made of a heavy foam base that collect the dart as they hit the surround and stick into the soft foam. The surrounds will last a very long time un less you have darts that have tips that are fraid they will make a hole after you pull out the dart of the surround. For those of you who don’t miss the surround will not come into play a lot and you will have one around a long time , so good luck with making that choice but as for me that wall will not come into play because of my surround I will put around my dart board !   

Thank you for using metro darts , were  we leave the bull to you!

THE TESTAMENT DARTS REVIW
THE TESTAMENT DARTS    REVEIW FROM WINMAU

Testament darts are a fully black- gray dart 90% tungsten barrels that are very streamline to give you the best function on that dart line. these darts are beautifully crafted using high-tech pvd  (physical vapor deposition) finish, the darts promote best -in - class grip and produce a durable, glare-free -look.  The darts have a laser etched aluminum shafts. Mega standard flight. the darts have a black coated point which helps hold to the sisal so those darts don’t fall out. I would have to say these darts are well balance darts and very skinny for better grip to the barrel. Testament comes in four styles with a little something for every darters feel to the barrel but smooth each dart barrel has some gnarly feel with rings or grooves with two darts that have weight forward look. lets talk styles 1087 is the smoothest dart with very fine rings and groves at 22gr, the next in line is 1087 24gr it has a slight weight forward and heavy gnarls to the middle of the barrel . The next dart is 1087 26gr weight forward a larger barrel , 1087 23gr has a weight backwards feel with small deep gnarls in front of the barrel smooth middle than small rings to the end of the barrel each of these darts has a black finish point for better grip to the board.

The Blade five board technology

Posted by jeff carter on 4/22/2017 to Darts

                   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!

Games we play - 01

Posted by huez on 4/14/2016 to Darts

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

The Dartboard

Posted by huez on 3/26/2016 to Darts

blade 4 Dartboard 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.  

What is a dart flight protector?

Posted by John Carter on 12/23/2015 to Darts

Many people come into the shop and ask about what they can do to stop hitting the other dart flights? 

My first thought is the flight protector. Flight protectors are made of alum or plastic and are 1/4 inch high and 1/8 inch wide They have four long slits to fit right on the back end of the flight.

  5. The lighting

The wall you put the dart board on is the most important 

Are you looking for a dart board?

When you’re looking for a dartboard, there are a few things to consider.

The dart boards we carry at Metro Darts & Disc Golf are top of the line and will last you a good long time if you take care of them! That being said, let’s look at how you pick which one works best for you and your needs. First, you’re going to want to look at the price of the board: the higher the price, the better the board. Always ask to open the box the board comes in so you may look at the board’s condition.

There are many different kinds of textures to choose from. Soft boards heal after you pull out the darts, where as hard boards show the holes after the dart is pulled. Hard boards will hold the dart better when you’re shooting, but they tend to wear out quicker than soft boards.

Each board is made of sisal, which is a plant fiber. The board is
