I rotate to the board when the 20 starts to look a bit rough. A good tip I'm sure I saw on here before was to take a black marker pen to all the outer names and designs so it doesn't catch you eye so much when turned.

Sisal, a natural fiber. Needs time to heal. So I believe in over rotating. If I have a long 2 or 3 hour session I will rotate my board right after I'm done. If I'm playing a lot I'll rotate about 3 times per week. This gives my 20 segment time to heal itself. Imo if you batter the 20 segment to the point where it looks beat, it won't ever recover as well as it should.

I used the over rotating method on my last board (B4) and it lasted about 2 years! And I played a LOT!

I tend to rotate mine once per week which would represent around 3 hours of play on my house board. 1 segment to the right so it gets even wear all round

About 2/3 times a week, depending on the amount of play.

I think I'll go rotate right now.  It's been a couple of weeks.

I practice 4-5 days a week (~ 1hr) and try to rotate once a week but if I was throwing everyday or primarily shooting 20s for -01 I might do it twice a week.

Not sure how others rotate but if I threw -01 most of the time I'd move one segment at a time. However I tend to practice mainly using the cricket #'s plus a couple others so I like to go two segments over....so make the 14 your new 20 or the 13 your new 20 depending on which way you decide to rotate. That way it moves the main targets out of the loop quicker. 

I realize that moving by 2 isn't great long term so I just move one extra whenever I land back on the 12 or 20 segment with the top logo. So this means day 1 the logo is above 20. So it's 20 to 13 to 2 to 7 to 14 to 20 - push to 18. Then 18 to 10 to 3 to 8 to 12 - push to 20. I'm really not that anal about it but it's not hard to remember the move one extra when you hit 12 or 20 again. Hopefully this make sense and it's not my coder brain over thinking it.
