A bent dart point can be hugely annoying, but the good news is it does not mean your beloved darts are unable to be used again. Much like flights and shafts, steel tip points are an interchangeable part of a dart and can be replaced.
Our design and production teams recently undertook the mission of re-designing the Bandit, adding new features in where needed, resulting in the new generation Bandit Boards.
The main question we asked ourselves was, how do you improve on a well-loved product with a legacy and provenance like The Bandit? There was no debate among the group that there were integral product features that wouldn't be altered or changed.

And no one wants to get caught out not knowing their black hat from their white horse. So we’ve cobbled together a selection of the most common, obscure and just plain weird darts terminology to add to your vocabulary (and possibly help you out at pub quiz).
