Winmau Blade 5 dartboard review
I've had my Blade 5 for over a month and I do love it!
The post I'm replying to is a year old, but my experience is soft tips on a bristle board works ok, but I always have more darts on the floor; I think they just don't stick after any slight deflection from another dart. I much prefer to use a light set of conversion points.

I agree. I like that fact my Blade 5 Dual Core is a little softer so my Soft Tip Darts (Daytona Fire JP02's) with L-style Carbon HardLip Conversion Points have no problems penetrating.

Nice looking darts!  In the review thread of various points, the original poster complained that the L-Style tips wore out and darkened his board, similar to a pencil lead.  Have you noticed any issue?

Thanks. The L-style HardLip Carbon Conversion points do wear out quicker that most but maintains the weight and balance of the overall Dart set better that most other conversion points IMHO. I haven't noticed any issues with darkening or changing my Sisal Dart Board color, nor have I had more than a normal amount of bounce outs with them.
