    Hello, was curious if anyone out there knew a good webpage / guide to creating my own soft tip dart board, i have the programming knowledge to write the code for the games, and to display them on a screen. I just need the dart board pieces individually and a good 'impact solution' to register dart hits. If you have any ideas please let me know. thx a bunch

    Your best bet might just be to buy a cheap arachnid wall board. Take the impact mat and face off and rig it up to your own system.

    I know there are quite a few cheap boards of other brands that actually use the steel tip board dimensions, so you could make a soft-tip board with steel-tip dimensions using your own software and display. These would be the really low end ones that you would find in the Wal-Marts and Targets of the world. The Arachnid ones range from $70 - $250. I had one of the cheap ones before I bought a used one from a bar and had good luck with the guts of the board.

    I wish I would have thought of that when I was in college. It would have made a really neat class project.

    Ya, thanks. I might have to give that a try, buying one of the more obsolete arachnid boards and gutting it, I just want to make sure it has the same deminsions as the bar's boards for guaranteed precision practicing Very Happy.
