Dartman Smart dartboard review
Hi,
I am hoping to get a darts tournment going in my area as there are none, and just tried getting this board. I would rather get electronic as it is just easier for a not so serious dart league. It is going to cost 220.00 for these stateside obtained directly from the source in the OP. A bit much for a board that you cannot test locally etc in my opinion. Very nice board, just hope the price point comes down. If someone knows where you really can get one of these for 160 please let me know. The 60 dollars makes a huge difference when you have to eventually purchase 5-6 more boards for a league. Thanks

Personally, I would never use these in a league setting. I'm going to assume that would mean hanging them up in a public place? It won't be long before some joker comes along and throws a fast ball right down the middle with a nice set of steel tip darts. Or what about the 'angry darter' that likes to punch the board? Believe me, I've seen it all. I used to work for a vendor and it was my job to collect stats and repair/upkeep the machines. I've seen people hit the dartboard so hard they cause the bulbs to blow that illuminate the board. These boards wouldn't last long in a public setting imo.

Yes, I meant a league setting. We cannot use steel tip for insurance reasons here as the room in the building I was planning on renting disallows it due to risk. I would much prefer using 50 dollar Blade 4 boards but it just isnt allowed for us. These wouldnt be "public" so called users, it would be more for people who signed up and most of us are old men just wanting to play darts. =) I really dont think people will be abusing these as there is no alcohol, just darts. I am trying to find reliable yet as frugal as possible dart set.

Wow going to be costly buying all those boards, I asked the guy in China how much they were in the U.S. and that's the price he told me, may be he forgot to add shipping, its quite difficult as there is a language barrier.

Yes I know. Looking through facebook, the initial price was supposed to be about 100 euros, or around 125 US dollars. I was a bit disappointed when he told me that price. I tried to find the Bulls 400s as well but it is out of stock everywhere.

I think they are looking to get more distribution world wide to help bring the cost down but might be a few months away yet.

Well my last message with Antony was about prices and he said he was having a meeting with a distributor to finalise a price but he never got back to me, I will see if I can catch up with him and find out if he got something sorted. Smile

Thank you, please report back if you find the price has lowered. I am interested to see what you find out.
