Looks groovy.

Damnit, do want, but how much will it be? If they make it affordable it could be a genuine revolution.

Any of you guys see this yet? How do you think this will stack up against boards like the Gran Boards? It looks like they have put a lot of thought into it and combined all our favorite features from the other boards. I can't wait to see how much these will sell for...

There's pretty much zero technical information about it at the minute.

The main question I have is can I connect it to a TV? I have one mounted above my board and currently stream to it from my tablet via Chromecast.

If this doesn't support either casting or have an HDMI output then that's a deal breaker for me.


I'm curious as to what's going on with this. They've said it will be available in November but all that's been seen of it is a couple of pictures. No technical specs, no videos or even pictures of people using it.

I guess they want it out in time for Christmas but I suspect it may well be delayed.

Is this the 'polymer' board that Target's MD patented???

I’ll be honest at £150 I can’t see it taking off in the UK....it’s just too expensive....£99 they may have a chance but it’s not gonna happen.....I like the look and idea behind it but it’s gonna be priceySmile

I think for the UK market its not really the price that is the main hurdle its the fact its soft tip and steel tip is so ingrained here.

The machine looks like it could be very good though so in the wider market it has to compete with the likes of Dartslive, Gran Board etc so as they are already well established it could be a struggle but I think Target have got the marketing clout to pull it off.

I mused during the Target launch this year their apparent commitment to enter the the online market.  Softtip electronic boards are the easiest way to achieve that goal.  Arguably the only way, outside of pricey and bulky setups like the Scolia system for steel tip.

Agree with Darren this product might find hard sledding in traditional steel tip markets like the UK - and small town Nova Scotia for that matter Wink.  But the numbers involved in the global softtip market might be too attractive for these established dart companies to ignore.

Might have to start hoarding steel tip equipment for the coming apocalypse.  Oh wait, think I've already started  Big Grin

Integrated monitor and cam... Amd its Target, so i guess it will be 180 £ minimum.

Its a bit pitty that they use those big 5 holes doubles and trebles... That was a chance to create something different. But i think they are after the asian and us market where those are popular.

Was going to mention the American style softttip board versus European.  Would've loved to see the latter style.  But as you say, the global softtip market is dominated by the American style board.  Heard it referenced as 'standard' on a recent softtip thread, which pretty well tells it all...

I would expect a price of around £200. Maybe they will come up with a cheaper version a few years later, if it is a succes. Like thy did with their lightning system. First the expensive Vision 360 and than the cheaper Corona.

And in the end the 5 hole boards are the standard and a change would make it unattractive for the big markets in Asia and the USA.

Personally I'd want to play on the board that is considered the standard. So if that's the 5 hole then so be it.
