Note: Depending on where you live or purchase this board, it will either be called the Puma Beefeater or the DMI Championship. Other than the name, both boards are identical and are manufactured by the same people in the same way.
This board is brought to you by the same people that make the Puma/DMI Bandit Dartboard. The obvious difference between the two is that the wires on the Bandit board are very then and embedded into the board without the use of staples. This board has nice "diamond shaped" wires that are connected to the board with staples.
Recommendation: This is a very solid and well made dartboard. It is perfect for throwers that want a good board but do not want to pay a premium price for one.
My Testing Results: I evaulated this board over three weeks. Listed below are the number of darts thrown, the number of bounce outs (and how many were bullseyes), and the percentage of darts thrown that did not bounce out. My definition of a bounce out is a dart that bounces off the board. Now, having said that, this is what a bounce out is not:
The board will be rotated prior to being used on any given night. I rotate the board so that the 14 becomes the 20. Below are the most current results. This is the first board that I've reviewed with the results based on darts thrown as opposed to just the period of time it was used. I feel it will give a much more accurate picture.
|Month||Darts Thrown||Bounce Outs||Percentage|
|December||8992||30 (9 were bulls)||99.7%|
|January||12,686||78 (24 were bulls)||99.4%|
|February||11,276||42 (18 were bulls)||99.6%|
