The WIN.MAX Electronic Dart Board Overview

WIN.MAX Electronic Dart Board
WIN.MAX Electronic Dart Board

WIN.MAX is a brand created by Welon back in 2008, providing a range of sporting and leisure products, and has since established itself as a quality provider of darts equipment.

The WIN.MAX electronic dart board is an economic solution for professional dart players who want to practice, and for those who are looking for a safer solution to steel tip darts.

It’s considered an upper mid-range electronic board. The Cricket Pro 500 by Arachnid is considered on top while the Viper Showdown is a budget product.

Pricing

This board lies in the midst of the spectrum. For the purposes of a leisure-darter (which is a word I just came up with), this dartboard will give everything you need for an excellent darting experience for a reasonable price.

The WIN.MAX Electronic Dart Board Features

I’ve assessed the basic features of this board, and here’s what I found.

Safety

This goes for all electronic dart boards really. They are safer for both your walls, and the people in your house. The soft-tip darts are so much less threatening than the sharp steel-tip ones.

Smooth Transitioning

If you’re switching from a bristle dart board to an electronic one, the WIN.MAX will give you a carbon-copy experience.

Durability

Both the board and the darts are durable. Many cheaper electronic dart boards will fall short after a few months of use. The darts won’t stick to the board, and the board may not allocate your darts correctly. This will never happen with the WIN.MAX.

Accessories

The WN.MAX comes with accessories that help you maintain your darting experience, but most importantly, you don’t need to buy any extra addons to start playing right away! Unlike other boards that require you to buy other things separately.

WIN.MAX Electronic Dart Board Features

This board has various attractive features that make it stand out amongst its competitors. These features include the following.

1.    Top Quality Barrels

The barrels are precisely made using CNC manufacturing, which offers great precision in executing the perfect design.

The design includes knurls and deep cuts all the way through which ensure a comfortable and long-lasting firm grip.

2.    Aluminum Shafts

The darts also feature precision cut aluminum shafts which provide maximum grip for the flights.

3.    Rubber O-rings

The package comes with 20 O-rings to ensure a firm tightening between the threads and the body of the shaft.

This prevents vibrations in the body of the dart and provides a smooth, straight flight.

4.    Polypropylene Flights

The flight design is the single most important factor for the aerodynamics of the dart. Polypropylene is the commodity plastic with the least density in the market, so your darts can easily fly for larger distances.

5.    Ultra-Thin Spider

Nothing is more annoying than when your dart hits the spider and falls miserably to the ground. This is why WIN.MAX’s engineer designed a super-thin spider to avoid such a mishap.

6.    Bright LCD Display

The LCD screen at the bottom of the board lets you keep playing without having to stop and calculate everyone’s scores after each round. Navigating the menu is user-friendly.

7.    Wide Catch Ring

The board’s catch ring is wide enough to ensure protection for your wall from wrong throws.

8.    Voice Announcer

If you’re practicing or having a friendly competition with your buddies; then the built-in voice announcer will be a fun addition to your darting sessions.

9.    Large Number of Players

You can play with up to 4 individuals in single-player games, or up to 8 individuals in multiplayer games.

You also have the option to play against the computer with 5 different difficulty levels.

What Comes With the Package?

The package offers a number of accessories so you won’t have to make any extra purchases to start using and maintaining it.

  1. 12 soft tip darts
  2. 40 extra tips
  3. 20 O-rings
  4. AC adapter
  5. Mounting hardware
  6. Game manual
  7. 12 extra flights
  8. Flight protector
  9. Dart multi-use tool
