Playing terribly on soft tip board
Hi Was at a Friends for new year and we were playing soft tip darts. Normally I play ‘normal’ darts. He beat me on almost every game and we were only playing single out! Darts were just going all over the place. What on Earth happened? Has anyone else had this kind of thing? It just feels like a different game- lighter darts, millions of bounce outs etc etc. Have got to say I only like playing on decent boards and (this is not an excuse) this was a cheap board. Hmmm. Happy new year everyone!!

Hey Ed.

It could be not being use to the light darts or the board itself. What type of board was it you were playing with? And what darts were they? House darts?

Ooph. Well I wouldn't say that board is cheap but...I've faced worst boards before.

I guess the weight difference is key. Also bear in mind the oche distance is slightly longer for soft tip compared to steel as well.

Ed being in Europe the distance would be the same as steel.
Asia/North America it's at 8 foot.

I’m not sure. The cold can’t help with darts surely; and dry skin ant be good either. Sometimes I can play brilliantly other times.... it just doesn’t happen
