Got my Black Friday bargain board up. Datadart Elite II.

Two quick early impressions:

1. I forgot how handy the Rota-Lock system on Winmau boards is, I have not missed having to fiddle with wedges to get the board even.

2. This board seems extremely stiff. It almost feels like throwing at an old Log End board, lol. I am hoping that means it will wear better than the super soft Winmau Blade boards.

Looks great and it has a black number ring so far less distracting

Bargain indeed, they remind me of the Loxley Steve Hine darts.
Ordered a set of 22g Shot Tribal Weapon Savage from Premier Darts and they sent me a free Michael Smith Tactical case with them too. Chuffed at that Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

At least my new board showed up, but I'm not entirely sure if I'm satisfied with the quality
It's still wrapped in plastic, but you spot holes in the sisal sisal at  the D3, 17, Double 20 and maybe more.
Is this norma for an Samurai Infinity?

My one has the same holes and look to be in the same places. May be something to do with a guide for placing the wires? The imagination wanders.

Thanks. I've unpacked it and mounted it and decided to not worry about this.
Seems to be quieter and a good chunk softer than my G3+.
Center of the bull still is ~1mm out of regulation, but I should finally get bull to oche tape since I doubt the floor is level anyways. Probably should put plywood behind it anyways because its horrible to drill straight in these walls.
Put the G3+ back up and will use it for the last few days of the year.
