What goes behind a dart board?
The dart board backboard Plan on having a backstop behind your dartboard. This could be cork, soft wood planks, or covered cardboard. You want something that the dart will stick into but won’t show a hole when you pull it out. I used a large piece of heavy cardboard that I covered in dark grey felt.
Why won’t my darts stick in the board?
The Dart. If darts bouncing out only happens on rare occasions, sharpening your darts with a sharpening stone may help. If your problem is the dart going into the board then falling out, the dart may be too light. A lighter dart does not penetrate the board as deep as a heavier one and will fall out more often.
How long will a dartboard last?
Certainly about 4–5 years. In case you take it seriously and play 45–60 minutes every day, a board will typically last for about 2 years. My board was almost perfect after a year. After 18 months, there is some minor wear which can cause darts to drop out sometime but it’s still very rare this happens.
