Dart Board : What is it?
Dart boards typically measure between 15 to 18 inches in diameter and are divided into small sections. Traditional boards are made of cork or soft wood treated to easily catch the pointed steel darts. Nowadays, the more advanced dart boards are electronic.
Kinds of Dart Boards include the following:
Bristle dart boards
Bristle dart boards are made of cork-like material, usually African sisal fibers. They feature movable number rings and dividing wires, and are used with steel tip darts. These types of boards can be mounted on a wall or displayed on a cabinet door.
Electronic dart boards
Electronic dartboards feature automatic scoring, sound effects, and options that allow multiple players. Some models are even designed to accept voice commands. The board surfaces are made of plastic to prevent scratches. Most models can only be used with soft tip darts, which are safer for children. The more advanced models allow the use of both steel tip and soft tip darts. Some electronic dartboards feature Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems that allow players to compete with the board. They are ideal for beginners and professionals, and for practicing dart throwing skills.
Durability: Bristle dart boards are generally more durable than their electronic counterparts. Choose those with ‘self-healing’ abilities and staple-free surfaces that eliminate bounce-outs.
Age group: Electronic dart boards that use soft tip darts may be safer for players under 12 years old.
