Does anybody have any issues with darts bouncing out of the blade 4?

I've had throws sometimes where 2 darts in the same turn bounce out, usually around the bull area.

Any way to reduce it?

Throwing one80 21g cutlasses
Had the same thing, i switched to a set of new darts and i had the same problemen. I even didn't dare to trow at the bull because it was a bounce out garrantee. You could scuff you points up a bid. Honestly, i switched to a Shot! Bandid plus and i rarely have bounce outs now.
Did you switched to a new set lately?
nope, I rarely have bounce outs. Ive had the board up for months and can count the bounce outs on 1 hand
I throw many times near the wire, so i had a lot of bouncers on all Blades. on my Bull's i have no wire bouncers
I do not have any issues with my Blade 4, personally my favorite board.
I have 2 blades and both have equal amounts of bounce outs. Maybe once or twice each in 1 1/2 hours of practice. Both boards are about 2 years old. I just bought a Shot/Bandit so anxious to report on it.
On my 3 blade 4 .... no problems and I practice on the bulls.

How hard are you throwing?

I agree, it's a fantastic board, but just makes me scratch my head whenever it bounces when some other reviewers have no trouble.
i rarely get a bounce out on my blade 4 only when the darts are really close together,probably deflection .used to get lots on my pro sfb,blade 4 is around 6 months old and never a bounce out from the bull area.

Used to play on a Bandit Plus at work, thinnest wire i've ever played on. The wires are basically flush with the sisal and never had bounce outs. BUT drop outs, way too many. The sisal is so dense that it barely takes the points, so scuffing the points are a must. But great board.

I used to lob quite a bit, trying to force the follow through now for a harder flatter throw. But regardless of the technique, I feel the darts still shouldn't bounce this often surely?

Recently I had a bounce on the bull and the dart came back all the way to the oche, I caught it and the point pierced my palm. Not fun at all hahaha

Yep, i had a B4, but when i got all the bouce outs i gave my b4 to my brother and i brought a Bandit Plus. Scuffing up is indeed a must, my brother with 19gr still cant play on the bandit plus and really loves the b4.
How old is your board? Is your bull battered?! From the bounceouts you have been getting have the points flattened the wires thereby making them bigger and giving them more surface area for future darts to hit and bounce off?
If you push a dart in by hand does the sisal feel harder or like it doesn't want to accept the dart (a dead spot)?
i would suggest scuffing and rounding your points as that will help the point to grip the sisal and not fall out and the rounding will help the point glide by wires rather than sticking in them
