Dartboard Buying Guide

Not all dartboards are created equally.  In 1992 Puma Darts developed the original Bandit board and the Bandit plus board in 2009.

Top things to look for when buying a dartboard.

Bristle
Bristle dartboards are made up of compressed sisal fibres. The main advantage of this type of construction is when you remove a dart from the board the hole will close behind it.

dartboard sisalSisal
The finest sisal is used, grown in Kenya to high specifications and is from the Agave plant.
It is conditioned to ensure the highest level of clarity in colour for high visability and purity for the highest strength. A Shot! or Puma Darts Bandit board typically has 3.7million fibres compressed into each board that is 74000 metres if all stretched into one line.

dartboard densityDensity level and depth
Optimal density for deeper penetration, less bounce outs & higher scoring potential.
Featuring over 60% bristle ensuring a deep & durable playing surface with superior healing.

sanded sisalSurface
The Bandit range of dartboards are sanded in multiple directions.
Giving a finer playing surface providing a vibrant surface that allows the bristle to heal effectively for longevity.

dartboard inksInks
Food grade eco inks penetrate deep into the bristle (unlike a standard dartboard)
retaining high visibility, low glare, colour strength & are environmentally friendly. 

micro dartboard wiringWire
Unique razor bladed wire construction 50% thinner than a standard dartboard has high visability & low glare.
Blades deflect darts into scoring areas, less bounce outs for high scoring potential.

bladed bulls eye on a dartboardBladed Bulls
Bandit dartboards feature both a razor bladed micro inner & an outer bullseye to eliminate bounce outs
while providing a greater player surface & a higher scoring potential.

composite dartboard edgeComposite Edging
A  unique composite edging made from recycled plastics allows for ease of number ring rotation
& gives modern look compared to a standard dartboard.

dartboard hanging bracketHanging
Our specially designed wall bracket which is included with all Bandit range dartboards
allows for ease of assembly & rotation without removing the dartboard.

Rotating Dartboard
A dartboard that is regularly used should be rotated at least fortnightly. Unclip the number ring and rotate the board to the next segment ie by moving the '20'  i.e., '20' would become '12', then clip the number ring back on the board.
