Dartboard made from a Polymer Material ?
Hello dartsnutz,

I already posted a question in this forum regarding how long a dartboard in general should last.
I just had a little practice and one of me darts slipped from me fingers and went straight into my dartboard surround.
When I started playing darts somewhat 10 years ago I bought that surround along with my very first dartboard.
A lot of boards have come and gone since then, but when I gave my surround a close look just now I saw and realised that the surround still looked relatively new after more than 10 years of use.
Obviously my surround didn't suffer as many hits as my dartboards have (luckily Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. ), but I was wondering if a dartboard could be made from the same material the surround is made of.

Production wise I think it wouldn't be a problem whatsoever.
That polymer material is printable, so to print the segments on it wouldn't be a problem.
I'm guessing a spider could also be moulded into it or something.
The material is pretty durable and I think it also would have some advantages regarding the weight and the generated sound when you're throwing.

Any thoughts on that ?

Very rarely would you hit the surround on the outside though. Pick a spot on the surround and continuously throw darts at it for 10 minutes or so and see how it fares afterwards. I don't think it would work personally.

Interesting idea but then in the past they had plasticine boards which I guess could last forever, you just had to roll them flat again and put the marks back.

Something like what you describe may work but could be a reason why they don't do something like that, may be they want the boards to wear so you buy a new one?

I guess you're right about that Darren

Don't we once have those disposable paper boards before? Something which you can bring anywhere.

Yes probably it's about time people develop alternative materials to create a dartboard. Like super compressed biodegradeable recycled paper and organic products.

We could use Larry (Sabre) just draw a board on his back and let him heal up for a week after use lol!

It's been tried. I guess it didn't work out too well because they weren't around very long

As a business I wouldn't want to make something so good that I'd lose customers. What if a company designed a board that lasted 5 years? They would go out of business quick

Agreed Cy!

Here in California, if they can create dartboards made out of compressed weeds, every player will always be on fire.

Guess it was not that popular then. I would like to hear from someone that has tried one Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
