Shot! Bandit Plus outside plastic ring
Hey guys, i saw the youtube vid of this board, and i saw it in a dartshop in amsterdam, but ive been wondering about the plastic ring on the edge of the board. I am a beginning darter, so sometimes my darts land on the outside of the board while practicing doubles. Would it be bad for the plastoc band (falling apart) or mabey for you dartpoints. And last but not least would it look ugly?

Greets,

Joene

They are called dartboard surround and it is recommended that you use one it as it protects your wall from accidental hits, and also the dart points from breakage. Most of us here use these surrounds. It's a practical worthy investment.

Welcome to Dartsnutz by the way and feel free to ask more questions.

I had seen the Puma video where the Bandit has the black plastic wrap. I thought it looked right smart. So when I got my DMI Bandit home and pulled it out of the box I was kind of disappointed with the silver steel band instead. I have thought about painting it black. It shows because I am using a plywood backboard and the dart board is mounted in top of that. I have the backboard painted with red white and blue circles. (see my avatar) It looks kind of neat but I might replace it with a standard surround being that its width of 4' is a bit overkill. My average grouping is slightly better than that.

I wouldn't worry about tearing up the plastic ring. Puma seems to know what they are doing.

I have noticed when shooting at Winmau boards at local brew pubs, they are a lot quieter than my Bandit. I thought maybe the ambient noise was masking the sound or that the pub boards were just more broken in. I think the sisal in the Bandit boards is just really tightly packed. It makes a really loud thwock sound when hit by darts. I hot glued foam rubber squares to the back of my board. This makes it more stable on the mount and less likely to rotate accidentally when pulling darts. I also glued foam rubber to the back of the backboard. But even with all that cushioning, Jeni can still clearly hear the darts land from upstairs.
