just what I was thinking given they will now have the larger PDC style doubles n trebles (I don't remember BDO participants in the Grand Slam suddenly bumping their averages though, but I digress)

Great looking board - never had a Dual Core but as someone who likes the Winmau boards I can see the Blade 4 Dual Core price dropping (hoping) - either that or a normal Blade board.

Blade 5 normal board review next?

Geert de Vos indeed had a great avg. 115.48 at the Grand Slam.  

On a whole however will the averages go up with the new Blade 5 is the question? Smile

Great review and certainly looks like an improvement on the B4DC which is still a relly great board. I will definitely have to get one of these...maybe from the man in the red suit lol

If I wouldn't already have a Blade 4 as replacement for my current Blade 4 this would be now on top of my christmas list.

LOL it was quick as it only came yesterday morning but I know the Nutz want the info as quick as poss Smile

Cheers! Would be even nice if the legs were not there like on the HD2 Smile

Thanks! How much are they there?

(11-04-2016, 12:22 AM)barcrusher Wrote: Great thorough review Darren. Very nice looking board. It does seem quite hard as mentioned hence probable why the heavier darts take a bit of pulling out. One thing I was wondering has the officialdom in darts have a specification for the size or surface are of the doubles and triples area as you mentioned they were a few millimeters in area bigger than the previous version. Cheers

Thanks mate! Smile I don't know if they have a regulation for the area, I know its meant to be 10mm from apex to apex.

Cheers Joeri! Yeah I think the test will be which wears best. Smile

(11-04-2016, 12:48 AM)Buckshot Wrote: Thanks, for the very fast review. Did you get the board before the official release?

The colours are very bright and perfectly in the segments. The bull is really a bit off (I was surprised you first recognized it when you were measuring it Big Grin). Maybe a new design for the number ring would have made the board perfect. Digital numbers would made it look a lot more stylish.

Now that Winmau has changed the wire, I can got back to Winmau. I switch to One80 because the big wire of the Blade4 was causing too much bounce outs.

Thanks! I got it yesterday morning, it came just before I was leaving the house so if it did not come then it would likely have been took back to the depot and I would have probably not got it until Saturday. Its difficult for me to see things like the Bulls centrality as my astigmatism is quite bad. The new wire should be a lot better though Smile

Thanks Darren I got put on the list and will own one early next year

Just watched the review and forgot to give you a super duper +1

Cheers Tom! did you like my 3 in the D20? Smile

A quality looking board and the new spider looks a big improvement.

Thanks mate! Spider is a lot nicer Smile

Nice review Darren, and a nice board to get for my birthday Smile to replace my old Longfield 3rd Generation, which still looks quite good but the spider is slowly coming out of the board now.

Thanks mate, its a good enough reason to buy a new one for sure Smile

So far I've only seen pre-order prices here of $110 CAD or ~£66, it's the same price I paid for my B4DC 6 weeks ago.
