Professional dart boards are made of bristle, a fiber derived from plants. The modern boards have very thin metal wires, inlaid into the sisal, to border the sections. Especially Unicorn, Bulls, Shot! And Winmau use this technique, which minimizes the risk of bounce-outs. Recreative children’s boards are usually made of paper or wood, or from metal (magnetic). The top brands, for example Bulls, also deliver a professional device to hang your dart board on the wall.
A darts consists of three parts. The Barrel (and tip), the shaft and the flight.
The barrel is made of tungsten, a metal with a high density. Therefore it is possible to design darts that are very slim and also darts with various shapes. Barrels for recreational darts are composed of brass, a cheaper alloy. Brass is less dense than tungsten and thus a dart with similar weight will be thicker.
The balance of a dart is very important, as well as the grip on the barrel. Every darts player has his own preferences concerning weight, shape and grip. Darts Warehouse provides its customers with a wide variety of Darts, covering many possible variations in weight, shape, grip and balance.
The shaft is the connection between the barrel and the flight. The shaft is also very important in balancing the dart. Length of the shaft and the material of which it is derived are very important the balance. Therefore, Darts Warehouse has an assortment of numerous shafts with every possible size and numerous materials.

Thicker flights usually last longer without breaking, but they are more expensive and lead to a higher risk of a collision with an incoming second or third dart. For flights also goes that every player has his own preferences and only by trying different shapes and materials one can be sure which flight is perfect.
