I'm loving my Blade 4 DC to pieces and until something new comes out I will never change main boards. It wears extremely well, colors are nice and sharp, the rotolock system is awesome and I believe it is worth every penny over the reg Blade 4 (and I've had 4 OG blade 4's to compare it to).

i now have two 20 / T20 segments that have gone rock hard. but my board is now 8 months old and has been used so much. pretty sure i would have gone through at least 2 and maybe 3 eclipse pro's by now.

Its looks like a really great board to me.
To bad that i have so many bounce-outs on my blade 4 since i changed darts. I really think that this is board is one of the best in the world! My brother is going to buy one to replace his old masterdarts board. But i wonder when a blade 5 comes out. Should take a while i guess

I cant think what else the can do to improve the spider to make a blade 5 though?

mine is definitely dying now. it has been superb for the 8 months i have had it, but i now have 4 sections that have gone rock hard. it seems to be the harder sisal of the second layer. i can push the dart in maybe 1 or 2mm then you hit a now rock solid part that even pushing hard cannot be penetrated. just trying to decide whether to get another one or if i should try either a bulls adv3 or a One80 gladiator along with their rotating bracket.

for some reason i always thought the shot and bulls board were basically the same. but in the uk the shot board is around £5 more

yeah i thought so too. its weird as i have turned it 4 times in the last ten days, and every time the 20 section has developed a rock hard spot very quickly. the point will only go in 1 or 2mm before it hits the rock hard section. most times the dart falls out. around the hard spots the board still feels as it did. as i say after 8 months heavy use i have no real complaint. a couple of the hard spots are in the T20 and in those areas you can see the sisal has sunk back a little. the odd thing is the bull is still absolutely fine.

i would have no hesitation in buying another one, but as is often the case with us darters i feel like trying something new.

Im in the same spot rich, there's a couple sections that are extremely hard and can barely push a dart into. The darts are still somewhat holding but now it's in my head and know it will get worse. I've loved this board though, but I'm with you, not sure if i'm going to try something new. I've had mine now for bout 4 months and while it has plenty of life left in it, it might be time to be considering a new board.

Hi!

My old dartboard is getting very worn out and is in need of replacement.
I'm getting a Blade 4 or a Blade 4 DCm but after reading that the Dual Core get's hard after a couple of months use I don't know....

Does anyone have suggestions about wich board might be most durable? (Blade 4 or Blade 4 DC)

And of course, if there already is a thread about this please let me know, I searched but didn't find this particular subject.

to be honest my board only went hard around the T20 segments and only after 8 months of very hard use. I have brought a new one because in the end i have never had pro level board last as long. i also love the rota lock system and the seamless dual core construction. my last blade 4 only lasted around 4 months as a comparison.

My board has went hard in places too, I've had a lot of darts being spat out and some of my trebles are terribly hard, darts are just barely sticking even with scuffed points. I've had my for 6 months, use it about an hour a day.

First board really so don't know if that's good wear or not. I'm not so happy with it now as a lot of scores end up on the floor.....

I can see other people are getting the same thing, strange or normal on a board?
