Question: Should I get my own board to practice?
Hello, so I'm wondering if its worth getting my own dart board to be able to practice at home. So far I've only been able to play darts (on a Dartslive machine) at my local pool hall and it gets crowded easy. Since I started with soft tip I was thinking of getting one of those but the only ones I've found around here are 180ish (I'm in Canada) the one I'm looking at right now is the electronic darts live home board.

Well if I were you I would definitely get my own version for home if you can afford it.

cheaper option would be to get a bristle board meant of steel tip, but can you can be used with soft tips, you can even get them in soft tip dimension. this would also be quieter for home use

Tho I'm wondering if it'll be better to invest in a steel tip board...

i use soft tips on my blade 4 bristle board all the time as yet i can't get a decent soft tip board in the UK ,but i really want a dartslive 100s . it'll totally depend on the cost when it comes available here

Yea that's the one I'm looking at right now, it's regularly 200 dollars here, but the guy who's disturbing darts live stuff is willing to give a 10% discount.
My place is never quiet lol, I guess my question now would be since I want to get into steel tip as well (abit later tho) but I'm pretty comfortable with the soft tip right, would it be better to just to get the Dartslive 100s or something I can throw steel tips at?

having never used a soft tip board ever i can't say , but a great thing about a normal board is you are forced to do the counting yourself ,which really helps with your game with planning out shots etc. as you say you have a lot of people round yours a lot .... how well will the home version of dartslive cope with heavy usage ? how much do replacement segments cost to replace ? if turned regularly a bristle board will last a long time

Oohhh that's a good point, never thought about the usage. But what do you mean turned?

a bristle board has a screw in the middle of the back of the board which slots into the mounting bracket , with most steel tip players playing 01 games the T20 gets most of the abuse , when this starts to wear simple turn the board round so another segment is at to top, the number ring can be turned to the correct position too, i say in 01 games to T20 but its the same with playing cricket the 20,19,18,...etc get more abuse than others so its good practice to turn it every few weeks, only thing is the bull is always gonna be the bull so if you spend alot of time just throwing at the bull it will wear out faster than more traditional games.

Ahhh ok, makes sense, that dynasty board looks really nice too. What would I need to mount it on a wall tho?

it should come with fixings , most are a screw in the back and a plate that you screw to wall/door that has a slot the screw slides onto

you can also buy the fancy ones https://www.dartscorner.co.uk/Dartboards...index.html

Most of those confused me, but I should be good just getting the board itself right?
(Hang a dart board on the door doesn't really seem like a good idea to me... Imagine some one opening it on the other side while a darts in mid flight...)

depends who it is lol


heres what a standard on looks like

2 longer screws hold plate to wall. short fat screw goes in rear of board, the 3 saddle shaped things are spaced round the back of board with the 3 little pins fixing them on to keep it level (i leave these off and use beer mats of wedges of cardboard) its far easier then i make it sound lol
