Thanks for this review, looks to be a really nice board.

Just placed my order with Darts Corner for the board, can't wait to shoot on it.

I really did want it and paid way too much for shipping  Smile

It actually wasn't to bad. I could have got a Blade 4 DC from Amazon for $120, I ended up paying $134 for the G3.

I guess the $14 incremental cost isn't all too bad.  Just a little tip, best price around here in Canada for a Blade 5 is Costco, $79.99 + GST and that includes shipping.

I saw here somewhere that A180 shipping is one of the best but cannot remember the thread

I never even thought of Costco, thanks for the tip.

Just received my Gladiator 3 board from Dartscorner (1st class service), and noticed a few issues. I've already sent Dartscorner an email with photos and also spoke to a girl in office (she was very helpful).

Issue 1: There's a discolouration banding that's on the outside of the doubles, going from no. 20 down to approx no. 2. With an additional large band prominent in the large single area of number 13 (see attached photos)
Issue 2: There's a fault in the no. 17 Double area (attached photo), with this also being part sunken in the defective area

I know Darren you had the banding issue when you first reviewed the board, but that was August last year and would have thought the issue would have been fixed long time ago (seems not)

Meant to say I had already sent Dartscorner an email with photos (same as above) and also spoke to a girl in office (she was very helpful). I've amended my post above to make this clear now.

The problem isn't with Dartscorner (they've been excellent), it was just highlighting the banding issue Darren found in August last year with his review board is still happening.

Perhaps still old stock which came from the same batch as Darrens I would guess?

What is the out come, replacement board on its way? Who's paying for the return of the old one?

You could be right, but Darren's review was 8 months ago, so either the issue is still happening or I've been really unlucky to get  a board that's at least 8 months old  Sad

8 months would indeed be quite long though, not sure how often they sell a G3. But anyway, let us know what the outcome is once you know more Wink

Only received the board today, so have to give Dartscorner time to contact One80.


Can't see them wanting to pay for return of the board as I live in Australia so not cheap to send back. the defective board
