Puma Bandit
Well I have finally got around to putting my Bandit on the wall, initially it is not as brightly coloured as my G2 but the wires are thin although white and the segments are solidly coloured without any mismatching.
I will give a review over the next few month's when I have given it a good bashing in!

Its quite hard but seems like a very nice quality board, the spider is much better than the one on the Bulls Adv 2 I had.

That's odd because mine is sounding quite soft and the darts go in almost up to the barrel with 26 mm points. a lovely "thud" it is too.

do you throw hard and what weight as its strange, as you had issues with the B4DC with darts falling out and to me that is very soft?

I really do not throw hard at all, this Bandit is holding my darts far better than the B4 DC did. I would like a bigger T20 though Ha Ha.
Its seems really good on first impressions but a bit dull without the light on though.

I imagine it will last very well, the Bulls adv2 I had lasted ages but was rock hard the first couple of months.

My G2 is wicked but could not leave the Bandit in the box any longer especially since I bought the bargain set with the Eclipse board from Argos on Saturday.
Got to say though the Eclipse HD looks poor compared to Puma and the G2 but it's far cheaper.

G2 was great too but it does seem to be that there is some worrying trend where some people seem to get slightly duff boards, I find that strange, its not unique to just one brand though, I often hear some people say such and such a board is great and lasted well and another person says the opposite :dodgy:

You're not wrong, I gave the B4DC to my niece and she throws 28 gram darts and she loves it but then she got it as a free replacement for her battered original blade.

Nice looking board. I have the DMI version with a red bull. I think I prefer your green bull. I've had my Bandit for several years and it's still going strong and looking good so I hope yours performs as well as mine has. Good news is I only paid about 50 bucks for mine.
Darts is like sex. When it's good, it's great. When it's bad, it's still pretty good.

I paid £52 for mine!

Bought used ,,,,,

aYep,,, Same here ,,, Mine has a Red/Black bull,,,,,,,,,

The sisal on this board is very dense,,,to the point that my not so well thrown soft tips sometimes bounce out,,My light steel darts (15-21) just do stick in,,,the Target Titanium conversion points seem to do well,,,,All in all a very quiet board ,,,,

the Bad ,,, the wavy long segment wires,,,and the very loose bull ring,,,,,,

Keep on aRockin',,,,,,

My one is very soft to the point that my darts go in almost up to the barrel. Putting the G2 back up and sticking it back in the box and the G2 is going back up.
