Frequently Asked Questions
1. I have just started playing Darts, which weigth should I use to begin?
A rookie darter should start with a slightly heavy dart (24 grams or more). A light dart will drift more when the player who throws it is less skilful. Technique is also very important. A darts player should finish the swing of his arm while throwing. This will prevent arm injuries. For suggestions on how to throw it is useful to watch professional players at work, on TV or ou YouTube for example.
2. What is the dart board made of?
The board mainly consists of sisal, a natural fiber harvested in Africa or Brazil. A common misunderstanding is that a board consists of hair of horses. This is however an urban legend. Another misconception is that the board can be cleaned using water. Don’t do this! Water makes the fibers expand drastically.
3. What is the dart board’s lifetime?
Of course this depends on the type of board, how much you use it and the circumstances it endures (temperature, humidity and light). It is important to turn your board once in a while, to prevent a weary board. Of course you should rearrange the ring with the numbers so that the 20 remains on top. A dartboard is considered weary when all around the board you see unevennesses, holes and bumps. Sometimes triple or double areas get so bad that darts fall out. Also, the wires might break or bend.
4. Heigth of the board and throwing distance?
In the standard game of darts, the board is hung so that the bulls eyes is 5ft 8in (1.73m) from the floor. The Oche is the line that a throwing player must stand behind, this generally 7ft 9in (2.37m) from the face of the board.
