Double Top Darts.

Blade 4 or B4 DC??
here in the US, we can generally get the Blade 4 for about $65.  The Dual core runs $10 to $13 more.
With this pricing in mind, would you pay an extra $13 for the dual core version??  Opinions sought.  Thanks

here in the UK Amazon sell the Blade 4 for less than £20 with free postage at the moment but the B4DC is thought to be better, I prefer the Blade 4 of the 2 as I find the dual core soft. Shame you cannot get the Gladiator 2 boards though.

Amazon. B4DC on sale for $73 with free shipping compared to $59.99 for the B4.

So an extra $13. If the board last a year, which it should with proper rotation, that's about 3½ cents extra per day Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I just ordered a B4DC from A-Z and forked over the extra cash just because they sponsor the forum. They have free shipping too.
I have a B4 board and it held up pretty good for 2 years but wanted something a little different this time.
Good luck with your purchase

BUT ....... if I only use the board 108 days out of the year, the cost is OVER 12 cents per day used!  That's a lot of money.

BUT, if only used 108 days a year, perhaps I'll get 2 YEARS out of it and my math would be all faaaked up.

Cy - are you suggesting that it's probably worth a little extra?

I've only played on a B4DC. Never had one in my home. But... from what I've read here and other places, the roto lock makes setting up super easy. Probably worth the extra money right there. And since you should be rotating every few days I'd say go for it Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. Splurgeeeeee

Just found a DC for the price of a regular!  And since the Bulls and Gladiator CANNOT be found in the US, I think I'll get it!!

I would go for the B4DC, had both, rotated them equally frequent, the B4DC seemed to get roughened up a tad slower . Can't go wrong with either really, both superb boards.
