Looks so much better without the extra logo too, you will love it I’m sure
Yeah I was pleased when I opened it and it was logo free as I prefer the cleaner look too. Just need to remember to be gentle taking my darts out as I got some replacement Lewis with black diamond points, but so far so good

This one without the logo’s looks indeed way better than with! Best combo G3 with the metal HD2 numer ring. Can’t wait until I get my number ring for Christmas to fit on my G3

My Blade 4 is beginning to bubble in a few of the light wedges, so I am thinking of passing it on while it is still a good practice board (regularly rotated) and getting either a Blade 5 or preferably a G3. Has the discoloration thing been sorted yet. Not that it makes THAT much difference, but for that money I feel it should be better that what I see in the pictures. Were they just skimping on ink?

I think with a lot of things like this its just a early production or quality control issue, I think a few had the same but not heard many complaints about in recent months.

No colour issues with mine. Highly recommended.

A question:

The g3 is harder than the b5 dc, which is quite soft from what I read. I would like to know, which of the two is more silent?

Thanks for the info.

G3 by far. Some of my sets used to hit the backboard on a Blade which caused a loud noise.

Thanks very much guys. I am just starting to look for a new board since my unicorn eclipse is on the last rotation before it will be put to rest.

Only problem is, I have had it for two days and haven't hit a single 180. Angry Guess I have to send it back... Confused

That's a nice looking setup.  One question - there's moulding or something in line with the top of the surround.  Not your ceiling height I hope?

cheers...

Here from two years ago when we were just starting to throw darts.

The board is hinged at the top so it can be flipped up as need be. Below is just a sheet of Styrofoam board to protect the floor.
It was mounted a little lower at the time for my wife. Wink

In general I like the ONE80 MUCH better than the Blade 4.
