For a very long time, traditional dartboards were the way to go, and purists do still prefer them, but soft tip dart boards are very prominent in globally.

While different people prefer different styles, there are some differences that may make an electronic dartboard the best for you.

  • Most electronic boards will keep score for you.
  • Bounce-outs still count!

Now let’s see its bad side. The product doesn’t come with good darts so you will have to buy them yourself. The volume of the board is a bit loud even on low. The heckler option has to be turned off every time you turn the board on or you switch the game. Every time in cricket mode you hit a wrong number it says the number followed by a miss this can be irritating.
