Practice Board with smaller beds?
We're all different - play and practice the game in different ways.  So I'll say tuned for a progress report with that trainer.  Fair enough @americanhelper?

cheers

I wonder if they would just add to the frustration factor.
If you know what I'm doing, don't tell me ..... I find bliss in my confusion.

I can't imagine smaller sections than what I'm trying to hit anyway. it's already frustrating most all the time. It goes without saying you practice what you'll be using in competition.

If playing with ProDarter is good for training why do I still play so poor?!

Do any of you know if these are still available?

'Champions Choice' was a common name for them.

Winmau make one with half size trebles and doubles ..... and as in my opinion they are the best boards anyway  you can’t go wrong!!!
Hope it helps

Thanks Papa W. How'd you get to be a pili nut? I've actually invested in a few pili farmers in the Philippines!

I happen to believe the old adage "Aim small, miss small" so will be seeking out a winmau practice board.
Hope you find one  and best of luck with your pili but investment!!.... just had my reputation bumped up over the years to reach this level!!!..... love the forum on it most days!!!

Thanks for all the replies and valued opinions. As I'm just getting back to the game I'm sure there are many advances in the realm of practice. I may just get creative with those little sticky dots for target practice. Until I get my stroke dialed in and decide if I'm going to keep checking 26gram Hammerheads I won't be buying a Champions Choice. Thanks again, all worthy comments.

The different nuts are dependent on your post count - I can't remember when they change but there's some others as well chestnut and brazil nut are two of them.

I had more luck with the Viper Aim 360 which has normal size beds but a small white diamond in the center of each bed.  This gives you something small to focus on. My game has improved a lot since I got mine.

Wow I never knew such a board existed! Quick question: Can you maintain your improved game on a regular board without the white bits? I found that I could up my average with the trainer board, but that deminished quickly after returning to a regular board. Reason being that the dots or smaller targets have disappeared, making it harder to stay focused on a small section

Yeah, my game has gotten better. When I play on a regular board, I look for a small mark or flaw in the bed to aim at.
