    I was going to put this in the tools section, but I thought here would be just as good.

    what do you guys think of these? they're called "dartminders" - they're pieces of paper that fit over the board and a way to keep track of your shots. I can see the pros and cons, but it'd sure be an easy way to keep track of groupings/games.

    Might be better if it were made out of a stronger material, maybe cork or something like that.

    This is a really great idea! I'm reminded of that section of George Silberzahn's book where one of the old time US champs talked about putting newspaper over the board the see how he grouped his darts. I haven't looked at pricing yet, but the concept works (at least in my head, right now). Good work!

    wouldn't that defeat the purpose? with them being made out of paper, it's easier for storage and writing on.

    Honestly in this generation of computers and technology a camera that you point at the board to keep track of your shots is the way to go. Have a computer program that tracks your shots using the camera.
    Paper is old technology.

    in this generation of technological "enlightenment" how many people actually know how to use this software, and more than that, how many know where to find it?

    Just seems that paper would rip to much to actually keep a good record. Cork can be thin as paper, but not rip as easily., making it easier to keep better records. Just saying.

    It's not even developed yet.....

    But that gives me an idea. Cool

    Interesting, but how would cork retain the shot mark? Wouldn't the spot just heal and disappear after the dart's pulled out?

    Your right, didn't think of that. Maybe cardboard would be better. It would keep the mark, and wouldn't rip, or wrinkle, and is easily stored for future reference.

    The bes thing would be something like cork that can take the dart, and has the ability to heal , under that however a sheet of carbon paper and under that a sheet of regular paper.

    That way all you have to do is replace the paper, and occasionally replace the carbon.

    why would you need carbon paper? The dart would go through all the layers, wouldn't it?

    I think these could be pretty handy. Ive tried the newspaper thing after reading it in Georges book, and Ive tried putting sticky "dots" in the trebles, but this looks a lot simpler, effective, and also easier to save for reference.

    I think Id try out the super slim and slim mate overlays as part of my practice routine between spring and fall darts season.
