Unicorn 2017 World Champion Player dartboard surround review


Here is a quick review of the new Unicorn WC Player surrounds.  When I seen these at the Unicorn launch event I thought they were a really nice stylish surround and a great item for fans of the players.

There is only the 2 players (as its World Champion themed) at present which is Gary Anderson and the version I have here the Raymond Van Barneveld one.

They are made from a heavy duty injection moulded plastic and have a very nice quality photo print of the players with their signature in a nice gold lettering on the bottom and the Unicorn logo also in gold at the top, to the right is the players image and on the left is a kind of polka dot pattern which gradually fades towards the Unicorn logo.

They are nice and thick and have a nice dense squidgy feel when pressed.

My biggest reservation as you would expect is the price, they are certainly not cheap at £74.99 and although surrounds have often been quite expensive I think the average price now is around £25 which is better than it used to be so these are certainly a considered purchased and I can only assume the manufacturing of the surround with the image is partly to blame for the cost.

It would be nice to see some in other player versions and even nicer if the price could be made cheaper Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

In the short video above I did throw some darts into it and you can see the holes on the left hand side in the pic below but it is such a nice surround that it was not easy to see it pierced lol!

So I think you can gather that I think its a very good surround but cost is the big factor and I think that is likely to put some off but I am sure die hard fans will still buy them and love them Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Nice one, Darren. +1. A wee bit pricey though.

Quite like the look of those black numbers actually. I've ordered some more white and green, but still waiting for them to arrive. May order some of those black too actually.

Hope they bring an Ambassador "Old Stoneface" surround out...  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I think it's a bit off putting, with Barney giving you that glare Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. And the price is ridiculous. A definite no for me. But thanks for the review.

Yeah the product itself is awesome but understandably everyone has the same reaction to the price.

Pretty much the same opinion as everyone else - looks like a real quality item and they have done a good job with the image and lettering, but way way way out of my price range for a surround!
