Target Pro Tour - anybody try one?
Have you played this board?  How does it rate against the Blade 4?  Opinions sought.  Thanks

Very good board - not as good as the Blade 4 but not far off in my opinion - miles better than the Eclipse Pro though

Just getting into the game, the Eclipse Pro is what I got as I found a price too good to pass up.  Now looking for my next board, and we are a little limited here in the US as the Gladiator and Bulls Adv are very hard to find.

We can get the Blade 4 and B4DC.  SupaMatch and SupaWire, Eclipse HD, Bandit and Bandit Plus aswell as Target Pro Tour .  I'm also cheap, so I'm looking for another deal too good to pass up.

Right now, I can get a:
Target Pro Tour for $54
Shot Bandit for $46
Blade 4 for $56

If $60 is ok... I would go Blade 4... no question.

The Pro Tour is a decent board, every one I have seen has at least one flaw in it, but nothing that will affect it's use... usually the paint is jacked a bit, but for $6 more I would definitely go B$ over the Pro Tour.

I have no experience with the DMI board... I wonder who makes it?

I have the Alien Competition Bristle Board...I've had it for just over a year and play frequently on it. I really like the board...my only complaint is the double bull ring isn't flush with board and I've noticed a few more bounce outs than normal.

The Alien looks just like the DMI.  Are they the same??

Yes DMI and Alien same board made by Puma/Shot. The pro tour board I got was junk so I sent it back, I wouldn't say they all are though. Can't go wrong with the blade4

Blade 4 / SupaMatch2 is a popular choice, that's for sure.

I wonder if one of these boards is going to last longer than the others?

Bad experience with the Target?  Thanks for letting me know.

I've personally got 2 Blade 4 boards.  One is about 2 years old and has tons of life still left in it... the other is about a year old and still looks new.

BUT... I don't play cricket at all... so I don't beat the tar out of the bullseye.

I think the pro tour board I got was old. It was real dry, had some big dents in it and as Jugger said the paint was kind of jacked up. It seemed like it could be a decent board if it wasn't so dry and crumbly. I will stick to Winmau boards but the Puma boards are very nice too
