So in my new/not so new venture into darting I have been playing some online games with a friend using Skype as our platform. We have played about 4-5 sessions of 501 just playing as many legs as schedules permit. It is a little klunky at times but we are refining it as we go. I have to explain a little more in that we are playing a mixed type of game in that I am using soft tip and he is steel. We discussed before hand that there is a difference in board and segment sizes but agreed that since the soft tip boards produced more bounce outs due to thicker spiders and having holes that the tips have to mesh with that it would be pretty much a wash and a fairly level playing field. It was and is my intention to move to the steel tips as time and money permits. In my Quest for a Sisal/brisel board I ran across a dartsnut review on the new boards I believe it was the Winmau blade 5 where he actually took measurements of the doubles and triple segments and what a surprise I knew the plastic tips were bigger but didn't realize almost 2x oops there goes the level playing field. Sorry pardner not taking back my two game lead you're just going to have to live with it until I can go steel. I'm probably going to hold onto my arse after the lickings I will be getting when I change. Now to my question. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Winmau B5 or the Unicorn equivalent one being used/sanctioned by the WDO and the other by the PDC. What do you guys/gals think? Is there another board I should be considering?
