What dartboard should I get next?
Greetings all,

I've had my blade 4 since March which really isn't a long time at all.

The sisal is holding up quite well, a small chunk out of one section fell out the other day though, its probably only a few mm so its nothing to worry about. There's a few straggly strands poking through in other places but no huge bulging or anything major to worry about. What annoys me though is I get a lot of bounce outs, particularly around the bull. The bull ring had craters out of it, and bits of the metal have splintered, spreading out into the actual bull which even though it's only tiny it means even if I get it inside the wire it'll bounce out. I don't use particularly sharp points, for the majority of the time I use storm points.

I'm still going to keep using it for a while at least because it still does the job.

But I'm lining up my next purchase. I'm not put off blade 4s for life, in fact I reckon I probably just got a duff one or ive been unlucky, as they get consistently great reviews. The major selling point is I can pick one up in argos for a shade over 20 quid.

I don't know however what to buy next. I've been considering a Gladiator2 which are a good price I guess but 6 quid shipping from DC is annoying as the blade4 I can collect for nothing.

What do you think? Ideally I didn't want to spend over 30 pound but I could up it for the right board lol.

Just seen the Dual Core one is under 30 quid in argos I reckon I'll pick one of those up. Bargain!

I think i'll change from my Blade 4 to the Dual Core too. Especially as i am moving the board out to the garage and it'll be on a brick wall. The Rota-Lock system should be just what i need.

I've just got it, first one the 25 section was all bumpy so I went and swapped it. Looks great and the rota lock should be just what I need too, the little metal things were all bent on my last board so it wasn't perfectly flat, I had to wedge it.

Not anymore! Woohoo

To be fair I was in the car park outside of the shop when I posted, and the other argos is about a 5 minute drive from there. Great board, don't regret it for a second
