Tips to Consider Before You Buy a Dartboard
You may assume that buying a dartboard is a simple process; however, with the options available, you’ll soon find yourself scratching your head about the ideal selection. Whether you’re using the dartboard as a hobby or you want to pursue it professionally, you’ll have to bear these factors in mind.
- Selecting the material is a critical factor as it determines how long the board will last. It must be durable, so you need to identify if the board is quick-healing. Bristle boards are the most common type as it contains sisal, which is a fibre from the agave plant. Over time, the holes that your darts leave in the board closes resulting in a longer-lasting board.
- The size of the board matters and affects your experience with the game. It’s advisable to acquire a board with a diameter of 47.08-centimetres, and when you hang the board, the bullseye must be exactly 1.73-metres from the ground with the throw line at 2.37-metres from the board.
- Consider a dartboard with a removable number ring. The board last a long time and prevent uneven wear. When you remove the number ring, you can rotate the board and change the positioning of the numbers, which takes a few seconds.
Interesting Facts Regarding a Dartboard
The game of darts dates to over 700 years. These are a few facts that you probably never knew about this simple game.
- While there are several versions of the origins of darts, one takes us back to 14th century England where soldiers played darts to keep busy at night. Instead of darts, they threw arrowheads into the bottom of an empty wine barrel. After they exhausted the wine barrels, they used the cross-sections of trees, and its cracks determined the points system.
