Another sweet mama!

I have one circa similar era Getagrip, albeit the PRO SFB one. Should be around 79 to 82 or so.
I don't think there is anything 'natural' about throwing darts. A person does not naturally stand sideways, with weight more on one leg, lean forward and swing to launch a projectile repeatedly, day in, day out as part of daily routine. One does not even throw a rock or ball that way.    ~ With darts, everything has to be learnt, and refined.  Wink

What is NATURAL? https://www.dartsnutz.net/forum/showthre...?tid=22147

A beginner - always experimenting and trying to learn! So I can fool around with loads of set-ups and techniques! Lol! Big Grin

Is it date stamped on the back?

There doesn't seem to be a date per se. A manufacturer's code perhaps? This is the only thing I see on the back: 60290904

I'm going by approximately which period I bought the board.

Hey, this is the one in the B4DC review. I remember boards we bought in the 90s still had that stapled ring in the bull. So frustrating to hit that as we so often did. Tossed more than one in the bin after that ring would split at the fused/welded joint.

Yeah that's the same one Smile

Feels heavier than modern boards too.
