Bandit Plus gone rock solid
Hey nutz,

Just had a few sets of 501 with my brother, but we noticed that my B-plus has gone rock solid(or so it appears). I have the board for over a year now, and i personaly never had a problem with darts falling out. I did recently switched darts currently playing with Wade 22gr, my previous darts are Shot 901 21 gr. It is really annoying to see a 140 falling out.what should i do? My board is hanging in a room with no humidity or something.

Thanks!

I have never had good luck with Bandit boards. First recomendation is buy a different board, Blade 4 is best I have played on.

Second, you state you are playing with new darts. Have you scuffed your points? Sometimes that will help as well.

Are you sure it's the board? I have a couple sets of darts with silver points that simply won't stick. Doesn't matter how sharp or scuffed they are.
26's so far this year: I've already lost count. :-)

Try scuffing with a 200 or 300 grit sandpaper. *BIG SMILE*
I don't think there is anything 'natural' about throwing darts. A person does not naturally stand sideways, with weight more on one leg, lean forward and swing to launch a projectile repeatedly, day in, day out as part of daily routine. One does not even throw a rock or ball that way.    ~ With darts, everything has to be learnt, and refined.  Wink

A beginner - always experimenting and trying to learn! So I can fool around with loads of set-ups and techniques! Lol! Big Grin

Great to hear the scruffed points work.  Cool

I thought Almere had quite high humidity in the region of 70 - 80%? If the room really has no humidity, perhaps you could put a bowl of water in there just like how jewellers put a small glass of water in showcases with spot lights?

My brother tried it also with his 19 grams, but with him some darts still keeps falling out of the board. Luckily he has a B4.
