Target Darts.

Dart Protection,,,floor treatments,,,,,
I would like to setup a steel tip dartboard in my dinning room,,,I have wood laminate floors,,,that I want to keep nice,,,,and a German Shepard that rules the roost,,,,,,

Anyone ever build a raised oche (like the pros use,,2 feet wide,, 7'9 1/4" long) for home use??,,,just asking,,not that I want to go that route,,,,,

I have been keeping an eye on craigslist,,for anything the right size/color option,,,,Rug/mat/carpet

I know all the dart company's sale rubber dart mats with distance labeled ,,do they slide on wood,,? Are they thick enough to prevent a heavy dart point from sticking in my floor ??

Keep on aRockin',,,,,,,

I like those Rebel, good idea. You could also try using the rubber play mats, can get them at some toy or flooring/ home stores. They fit together like a puzzle.

As Requested cell phone pic,,,,The plan is move the big blue painting to above the dogs kennel,,,and replace the ceiling fan with track lighting,,,,put a oversize carpeted backboard on the wall (to catch stay darts) with a shelf or spot to hang a video monitor for web based games,,,,,

I use those gym mats at home as you can roll them up when not in use so that it would not trip guests, etc.. Their like the yoga mat material but broader.

Nice puppy by the way. Seems very comfortable at the corner.

carpet tile held together w/ tac tiles (one sided tape ) for a no glue install
silicone turns a normal rug into a non slip rug
board is soft tip see thread in soft tip section.

Then buy those laser oche, put some bar lights with neon lights around, install nice speakers, and invite us to join you there!!!

I hope your GS doesn't get mad at visitors!

Another vote for carpet or some (folding) wooden board.

We experimented with a rubber mat as offered by some of the big dart companies, and it had such a disgusting smell - you just don't want that at home. We even put it in the garden (direct sunlight), but even after weeks it was unusable.

a good german shepard would catch the darts before they hit the floor and spit them up to the treble 20 , i reckon you need a new dog
