The 36 inch dartboard backboard

There is something appealing about quality products as they always seem to add on to you than take away. This is the feeling I get when I look at the 36” dart board backboard. As a wall protector, it has a lot of what an average dart player would be looking for in a wall protector.

For starters, it comes with a plush cushioning that allows for darts to go in without leaving marks. This however, does not mean it has a weak spine and will wear out fast. It has a ¾ inch wooden backing which is what holds the plush cushioning. The wooden backing also works to ease mounting of the backboard. The 3inch screws also assist in easy mounting as well as the fact that the board comes with pre-set spaces for installation. For those who prefer a backboard that stands on its own, this would be your choice.
