Winmau Blade 5 dartboard review
Great review Darren! As far as which will last longer, B5 or B5 DC all is I can say is my B4 DC lasted quite a bit longer than the B4. So to me it is well worth the extra $ for the DC.

Given the choice which would you most recommend?

Well I still like the spider on the HD2 a lot and initially I think it looks the best to the eye but I don't think it wears as well so for that reason I would say the B5.

Thanks Shawn! I have heard a couple say they think the B4DC has lasted longer than the B5DC too.

Great Review and thanks Darren! I'm also torn wether to fork out the extra for a Dual Core or just get standard B5.
Leaning towards a dual core though....

(FYI for those in Canada you can pickup a Blade 5 at Costco for $79 online includes shipping Smile

Mr D you have done the review system proud yet again. Take that +1 and use it well my friend.

I have had the B4 and the B4DC. My 4DC is blistering pretty bad which is why I'm up for another board real soon. I trashed my B4 using it in the cold and it developed mold pretty bad so I had to toss it.

I think I'll go for the B5 as I kind of like the veins

Super and very thorough review. I like the look of this board a lot. I reckon I'll get myself one of these when my B4DC wears out

Hello Getagrip, thanks for the great review. Since my new Unicorn board doesn't seem to last very long I am looking for my next board already. What's your favorite of the boards you have reviewed over the past few months?

Well its a case of me not having had enough time on some of them yet so I cant be 100% sure but I am leaning towards the G3.

I don't want to hear this answer since it's the most expensive board Big Grin

I played on a G2 once: it was hard as hell and my darts felt out a few times. Is the G3 a hard board too?

Nup. G3 is perfect in terms of firmness. My G2 was hard, my blade 5 is way too soft. The G3 is perfect.
