One80 Gladiator 3 dartboard review
I had some discolouration as well, after some use it is not noticeable anymore but I agree that it is off putting at first. To be fair I find the D17 problem quite acceptable from what I can see from your pictures, a board can't be 100% perfect.

So gutted you have waited for the board to travel around the world and it's imperfect.

I had the discolouration problem on the G3s I received, but not on my first G2, but just taken delivery of a new G2 and it now has the discolouration problem, so it seems instead of sorting the issue they've just left it and now passed​ it on to other boards!!

I'm beginning to think it could be to do with how they are stored

I would certainly contact One80 too, I am sure they will help sort it.

Just received a reply from Gary at Dartscorner and he says he doesn't see anything wrong with the board, and to keep throwing darts at it which will move the bristles and all will come good  Huh

So what I now have to do is play darts and play to hit the discolouration banding on the outside of the double, from the 20 all the way down to near the 2. Next I'll have to also keep throwing darts at the single 13, and will have to only finish on double 17 to fix the defect in that area.

This is really going to be fun playing darts with my new Gladiator 3 board (not)  Undecided

As a side note I currently have a Gladiator 2 and have no discolouration or defects on that board anywhere.

Not a happy Chappy  Shy

Love the green surround! Good choice Smile
ïm hoping my G3 does not have the discoloured band .., but from the oche I think it isn;t visible at all is it?
Enjoy your new set up! Looks great.

I had th same issue with the 13 part of the board, and really I don't notice it now, I completely forgot about it until I read about just now in this thread. I can't see it now on my own board.

Its not ideal I agree but the board is excellent. I've ben playing on it now since October and it looks barely used, holes heal up really well

A pic of one- that I ordered for our New Club.
No Rotafix and no England Darts emblum
Yes it has the new Spider.

Spoke to dartscorner again and they said they were waiting for One80 to get back to them, but if I wanted they could give me 50% credit of the dartboard cost (they put £18.00 into my dartscorner account, which I used for my next order).

Not sure if I did the right thing, but as I was putting in another order I went for it  Smile

Would still be curious to hear what One80 say about the discolouration banding

Wish my board had come without the England Darts Organisation Emblem (I'm Scottish so having an English Emblem on my dartboard is  Confused  )

That's a nice solution Celts88! I hadnthe same discoulered band but to be honest, after throwing 3 days on the board I could not see it really anymore. When turning my board every week now I wouldn't even know where it was at the start. So those 18£ are a nice 'outcome' I would say Smile

Yes, I thought it was good offer from Dartscorner, and appreciated them at least coming part way.
