I am an above average player, and have owned several boards in my life. Heals quickly, and the staple-free bullseye really DOES minimize bounce-outs.

Included darts are perfect for those starting out, or as extras for guests when you dont want to ruin your good set. I might suggest purchasing a set or two of aluminum shafts though.

Make sure that you have adequate anchorage, this board is HEAVY. If you are mounting it in-house.. say... in a basement, you will likely be facing drywall, and you MUST mount it on a stud. Out in my garage, the walls are plywood, and I was able to mount directly in a spot with no stud using the included bracket and screws.

Will update if my opinion changes.

This board is a very good bargain for the money. It suits my recreational needs well. I will try to address some of the questions/issues others have raised. Self healing: much better than my old cheaper board but yes after hundreds of hits some holes are showing. Wire/spider: It is round and normal size. I have way fewer bounce out than with my old board and am fine with how it works. If you need to have next to none, pay twice as much and get the triangle wire board. Can't read the numbers: all the higher end boards are like this and you learn them very fast. Being able to spin the board is great and well worth the lack of clarity. Hanging instructions: There are none but a quick internet search gave them to me, no big deal. Cheap darts: REALLY? The board costs $22 and it is good quality. They throw in two sets and what do you expect. Acceptable recreational darts start at $15 and competitive darts start at $50. These darts are fine for when people who don't know what they are doing want to throw. They protect my good darts. Bottom line: this is a very good deal for under $25. If you want a good home board this is it. If you are in highly competitive leagues and want more, pay the $50 and don't whine about this board.

Good quality board, comes with a set of six darts, has withstood several days of heavy playing well. Occasional bounce-outs, but only when the darts hit the wire dividers just right. Would recommend that new players, like myself, hang the board on a piece of Homasote board, to catch the darts when you miss.

Very satisfied with this dartboard. Very professional.

It seals up when the darts are pulled out and it's a pleasure

to play on. It's exactly what was advertized.

I have mine setup in my garage and we play almost every night. I thought bounce outs were normal but after having so many happen I really needed a change. What's even worse is this board seems to have more bounce outs on the bullseye than anything else. Not to mention after the steel tip dart bounces out it continues on it's warpath of destruction to take a dent out on my concrete floor. My darts have become dull and after purchasing new dart of better quality these bounce-outs are not exactly what you're looking for on $30+ set of darts.

A friend had purchased the Winmau Blade 4 after getting into the dart throwing game and that board is a dream. It cost a little bit more but it is by far worth the money. I have just purchased a Blade 4 to replace the shot king.

Again, this isn't a bad board but you'll get 8-10 bounce outs in a 30 minute throwing session which is basically unacceptable. Especially after buying lighter darts "which I like" they tend to not stay in very well and just fall out sometimes.

Playing on my friends Winmau 4 you're lucky to get one bounce out in a hour of play.

Treat yourself and treat your floors, Buy the Winmau Blade 4, do not settle for the shot king if you are trying to be serious.

This was somewhat difficult to hang up. I made the mistake of letting my roommate hang it up and now there is a big hole in the wall. I'm sure normal people aren't that stupid. Other than that, this dart board has survived several months of fierce dart competition. Great product for the price.

Maybe my dart board is deffective, but it absolutely does not heal any holes at all and after playing for about 30 mins the thing is covered in holes.

Even provides 2 free sets of darts, but don't expect much out of those darts as the break pretty easily.

Bought this set for the holidays. Installation was relatively easy, but required a bit of adjusting to make sure that the board isn't shaking on the wall. Played a couple of times to get a feel. As others stated bounce-offs happen more often than some other boards, but it did not bother us. However, the bounced off darts broke apart the the 3rd time we played. The plastic fly-tips were breaking off the metal tips, making the darts useless. Now we need to replace the darts. What a disappointment.

If anyone can recommend better and more durable darts, I would greatly appreciate that.

The dartboard was very easy to setup and I started testing it out right afterwards. The only problem with this board is that healing is super slow and leaves marks all the time. The darts that come with this thing are useless and you have to purchase your own to get any good use out of them. If they included better darts and healing then this board would have gotten the full stars.
