Soft tip darts

This is a Mid-level Dartboard that is a steal at this price for an electronic dartboard cabinet set.

This is in comparison to steel-tipped darts that put a hole every time you throw stray darts that do not follow the parabolic travel curve that you destined for it to travel and lands outside the target area.

Soft tip darts are also a safer option if you’re playing in an area where it is busy and people pass by all too often.

Target area and bounce-outs

Electronic dartboards are known for their bounce-outs. Bounce out is a failure of the target area to hold the dart when it hits the surface of the darts. It can be pretty frustrating for a lot of players as electronic dartboard starts to bounce off darts, you need to collect darts again from the floor and get ready for the next round. In the case of many players, it can become even more of a hassle.

 

Plastic and soft-tipped darts are known for bounce-outs against steel tip darts that usually do not have bounce-outs.

Luckily, Arachnid 1.0 electronic dartboard cabinet solves these issues to a big extent. Not only does its target area feature a sturdy and durable nylon surface, but it also has micro-thin segment dividers that reduce bounce-out rate. No more frustrating times collecting darts from the floor!
