Dart Board + Backing Recomendations?

I am looking for a nice dartboard. I am leaning towards electric that has the built in games since myself and anyone playing are total amateurs.


Also what are people using to back them to protect the surrounding walls? I have searched a few other threads and seen various things. MDF with cork seems to be common. I am looking for something that looks professional with as clean a look as possible.


What do you guys/gals suggest?

I guess it depends what your goals are. I have it adhered directly to drywall. You can’t see holes from more than a foot or so, and even then hard to see.

GranBoard or Darts Connect. GranBoard is a little more expensive, but looks a little nicer I think and is a little higher quality. Both are designed to hook up to wifi and run through an app on phone or tablet and can be chromecasted to a TV. They are both online boards where you can play against other people that have the same board.
