What customers say about "Key Specs"
Winmau Blade 4 Bristle Dartboard
  • The spider is thinner and more secured to the board than all the rest.
  • No staples really makes a difference! Can't tell you how many darts bounce out when aiming for bullseye when it is held down with staples.
  • The steel wiring has held up great to plenty of strikes. Only small nicks on the surface but no movement whatsoever.
  • Love the bright and clear markings and the white wire really stands out and looks sharp.
  • The metal spider is especially thin on this board, which reduces a lot of bounce outs. Definitely nice to have.
Winmau Blade 5 Dual Core Bristle Dartboard
  • The color is rich nd bright everything is symmetrical and even, well crafted board couldn't be happier I'd say definitely top of the Line.
  • Aside from the quality being the best on the market, the best thing about this was how thorough the instructions were for placing it properly.
  • After a couple months of heavy use and proper rotation, this board has held up tremendously.
  • It falls apart like all the rest. You can buy 4 dartboards, each one of which will last exactly as long as this one, for the price you pay for ONE of these.
  • Very disappointed in this product. Center bull green and red deteriorated with wires exposed and no darts sticking at all.

What customers say about "Features"
Winmau Blade 4 Bristle Dartboard
  • The colors are bright, vibrant, and tough. The dual core sisal from Kenya catches and holds the darts noticeabley better than the rest.
  • It heals itself without leaving visible holes that disappear after a few minutes. the sisal doesn't pull out when your dart is extracted.
  • Bounce outs are virtually eliminated, it can be leveled and locked into place with no wiggle or wobble utilizing the Rota Lock system on the back.
  • Their boards are beautifully crafted, clean, and durable.
  • The main advantage of this type of construction is, when you remove a dart from the board, the hole will close behind it.
Winmau Blade 5 Dual Core Bristle Dartboard
  • The Rota Lock Advantage is great as with all the improvements over last years model.
  • Very nice dart board, perfect for competition and the spider wire are way better than blade 4, hope the sisal fiber won't worn up right away.
  • Spider wires are excellent, not as raised as my other board. Less bounce outs in the bullseye.
  • Leveling system is excellent. The board stays solid and firm on the wall.
  • I like Winmau boards, but this dual core board allows too many bounce-outs.
