Enjoying a game of darts with a group of mates sparks engaging conversation and solidifies friendships. It can be a rewarding experience, and might encourage a person to buy a dart board for their own home. There’s nothing worse than spending time and money on purchasing sports equipment, just to find out that it’s not sufficient quality or that it simply is not the right gear for you. When looking for a dart board or darts, it’s important to choose the right kind of equipment and equally important to purchase from a business you can trust that has a proven track record.
All Dart Boards are Not Created Equal
There are plenty of cheaper dart boards available on the market made from compressed fibre or cardboard that will not be durable, and in the long run are costlier because they must be replaced more often. When buying dart boards in Australia, make sure you are purchasing a higher quality board to ensure a longer life for your equipment.
Higher end boards are made from sisal fibres glued to a backing with web shaped dividing wires called a ‘spider’. You want a board with thin wires. The thinner the better. Thin wires create a lesser chance of the dart bouncing out because you are less likely to hit the wire. This type of board made from sisal is called a bristle board, and is far superior to cheaper ones available. When a dart sticks in this type of board, it removes easily, and the hole it creates closes behind the dart, causing less damage in the long run, which gives your dart board a longer life.
Finding the Right Set of Darts in Australia Can Improve Your Game
There are a variety of issues to look at when choosing a set of darts. First would be the weight, which ranges from 12 to 50 grams. The lighter the dart, the harder you need to throw it, so the speed with which you throw it is going to make a difference.
You should also consider the type of material the dart is made from. While there are many types of darts, the main two are made from brass and tungsten. Tungsten is a far superior choice because it’s denser and harder, allowing the barrel of the dart to be thinner which allows for tighter groupings. Darts made from other materials can wear out quicker due to hitting other darts or bouncing out and hitting the ground.
Next, you’ll want to choose a flight. The size style and texture of your flight will definitely impact your game. It comes down to simple aerodynamics. Larger flights are slower and cause more drag, but are less susceptible to differences in angle. Smaller, sleeker flights are faster, but are sensitive to the angle at which you throw.
