Dartboards - you can't play darts without one, Dartboards have evolved over the history of the game from lumps of wood to the Bristle Dartboard that is used to-day.
The "Clock" I.e. The face of the dartboard has two centre bull rings (single and double) an elusive treble ring, and an outer double ring. The thickness of the dartboard varies but it is important since it provides a cushioning effect for the dart. A dart landing in a thin board produces a loud unpleasant 'clonk', a good board sounds a comfortable 'thud'.
The Bristle Dartboard which is made from sisal, the fibre used for making ropes, carpets etc.
Deadeye has the biggest range of dartboards ranging in price and quality. We do not sell paper boards.
Our Dartboards are used by all professional dart players in competition as well as for home use. If treated properly the dartboard used at home should last for many years. When we say the dartboard needs to be treated properly we mean that the numbers on the dartboard need to be rotated. This allows the face of the dartboard to be used in a consistent manner.
Brands that we sell include our very own Deadeye Marksman, Winmau, Nodor, Target, Shot. We keep a large supply of each dartboard in stock and can ship to anywhere in Australia.
The dartboard should be 1.73 metres or 173 centimetres from the centre of the dartboard (the centre of the bull) to the ground. This is the regulation height mandated by dart associations globally.
What is the correct distance from the ground to the throwing line?
Setup the dartboard throwing distance to measure 2.37 metres or 237 centimetres from the wall to the front of the Oche (or throwing line).
After your dartboard has completely been set up, it is a good idea to measure the distance from the centre of the bull to the Oche throwing line to make 100% sure all measurements are correct. If this distance shows to be 2.93 metres or 293 centimetres then you know your dartboard was set up correctly.
What are dartboards made of?
All competition and professional dartboards are made from sisal fibres usually sourced from Africa. Dartboards can also be made from paper, cork.
