"My darts feel comfortable in my hand, grip is minimal allowing darts to fall out of the hand. My darts are set up so when they hit the board on a downward angle hitting a 60 the other two darts can hit and follow in for hopefully another 180. Puma Darts make the best dartboard on the market today (The Bandit)"... Clinton Bridge
"Being a Puma Darts sponsored player, wearing the logo on my dart shirt and receiving the recognition from other darters always makes you feel more confident and this shows on the board" .... Clinton Bridge
