I haven’t owned many dartboards, but I have played on lots. Out of all the boards in all the pubs, nothing compares to the Winmau Blade 5 Bristle Dartboard. Winmau has pushed the boundaries of technology to provide a set of features you can not find on any other dartboard.
Even compared to the Blade 4, the wires are thinner, the beds are bigger, and the colors are brighter. The Blade 5 offers a solid firm construction that even comes in a dual-core model for added durability. Winmau also has patented a three-wheel lock mounting system to make setup a breeze on any surface.

“The Blade 5 is my favorite dartboard. Winmau sets the bar for what a dartboard should be. It has a solid construction, a beautiful finish, easy setup, and at a price point that can not be beaten.”
Let’s take a look at some of the key features of this BDO endorsed board
- Completely staple free

- Beautiful and vibrantly contrasting scorings sectors
- Wire angle reduced to 60 degrees
- The tensile strength of the wire has increased by 20%
- 14% reduction in web surface area for higher scoring.
