That was my only issue with the Unicorn. The glue. Got all over everything. Points, fingertips, barrels.

But as a simple rule, you should be rotating any board quite often. A couple times per week minimum. That is, if you want a board to last.

Just bite the bullet and buy a new one when you need it, nothing spoils my enjoyment more than looking at a board I'm not happy with ( apart from throwing like muppet ).
Plenty of reviews and opinions on boards on the Forum,
Did I mention I have a new Gladiator 2 and its great LOL

The G2 is for winners. Although the G3 SHOULD be out soon.....

I prefer a firmer board personally, I get fewer bounce outs with the G2 maybe because my darts land flat, love the sharp colours without any marbling in the segments and it has an awesome spider. For the price it is excellent value.
The B4DC is much softer, the Blade 4 is also an excellent board as are the Nodor and Target Pro Tour but for me it's a no brainer.
Still waiting for the G3 release though

Im still waiting on the G3 aswell. Love the G2 and got a B4DC at the minute... Hoping my next board will be a G3, if not it'll definitely be another G2

Have you got a new Gladiator 2?  Blimey you kept that quiet lol.  How's it holding up? My board has still got loads of life left in it but I'm thinking of getting a new one - love brand new boards straight out of the box lol.


As to the question, I'm sure someone posted the link on here somewhere but there's a shop in Ireland that has already made a page up for an Eclipse 2 (can't remember if it was the Pro or HD version though). That page mentioned coming in April.

Slightly off topic, but one thing that annoys me is that almost all dartboards are made with a design that has a top and bottom, say the Blade 4, it has Winmau at the top Blade Four at the bottom and the BDO logos at the side. Fine for TV where it's used once but for home/club use why not have it say Winmau Blade Four at 12, 6, 3 and 9 o'clock so when you give it a quarter turn it's always the right way up. I know Harrows sort of do this on one of their boards. The only thing I can think is that they know a lot of people will just put the thing up the right way then never turn it because it looks wrong so buy a fresh board before they need to.

I never think about the logos lol - if they bother you though then try painting them all out with black paint

Maybe Dartsnutz stickers.

i was a massive fan of the blade 4 DC until i got the G2. its a stunning board and i definitely get way less bounce outs than i got from the DC. i have the Rotafix bracket too which is superb. it allows for easy rotation and cuts out almost all of the vibration.

Does the g2 have a clean face ie lots of veins showing? This is one of the reasons why I like the look of the dual core !!
