How Much Do Different Types of Dartboards Cost?
Dartboards come in lots of different styles. If you do a quick search for the term ‘dartboard’, you’ll come across steel-tip dartboards, soft-tip dartboards, electric dartboards, child-friendly dartboards, and more.
Let’s take a look at these types of dartboards in more detail and find out how much each of them costs.
A traditional dartboard is made from sisal fiber. They’re designed to be used with steel-tip darts. These boards typically cost between $30.00 and $120.00.
The price of these boards varies, depending on the brand name and the quality of the sisal fibers used.
A good quality board can usually be picked up for between $60.00 and $80.00. Unicorn and Winmau steel-tip dartboards fall into this price range and you won’t hear any complaints from us about them.
We’ve reviewed both a budget-friendly and a higher-end traditional dartboard. See what we made of them below.

The Viper League Pro Regulation Dartboard comes with lots of extras, including a hanging bracket, scoreboard, measuring tape, and a set of darts. When we reviewed this board, it cost just over $32.00, and we think it’s a great deal.
Other benefits of this board include being able to easily rotate it and the bullseye being staple-free.

The darts included with this set aren’t the best quality, so we recommend buying some additional ones. We like how easy it is to rotate the dartboard and that the bullseye is staple-free. The cabinet is also pleasant to look at and has folding doors so all your kit can be neatly put away.
