Thinner wiring system for higher scoring potential
The bristles are tightly packed and heal incredibly well.
The wiring design minimizes bounce-outs
The lifespan of this model is further extended by the steel reinforcement of the bullseye ring using carbon diffusion technology.
The optimization of razor wire angle (through reduction of the blades by 30 degrees) will allow the increase of dart deflection in the scoring bed.

It reduces bounce-outs and has an improved dart deflection with a 30-degree reduction in a razor wire angle.
Winmau dart boards are famous for being long lasting so you should have no worries about having to replace this board anytime soon.
Both the wiring and the bullseye of this dartboard are sharp for superior prevention of bounce outs.
Featuring an even thinner metal wire (0.35" wide around the doubles. 0.24" wide around the triples) in the shape of a prism angled at 60 degrees, bounce-outs are almost non-existent.
For one thing, the spiders, or section dividers are positioned at a 30 degree angle to help darts glide into the dartboard instead of falling out.
