We gave the new Target Vision 360 Lighting System a test drive in our coaching room recently. The light ring comes with all the bits you need (you need your own board and fixing kit in place) to assemble it and get it running immediately.
The instructions are easy to follow and should take you around 10-15 minutes to set it up. Please do check out our video below for more info on this: Target Vision 360
Once you have done your dartboard DIY you are ready to fire up the light ring. My first impression was "WOW". The lighting was perfect, no shadows and visually stunning.
One player has asked if I thought that the ring would put players off. I actually found the opposite (as did the player that asked the question who came in the next day and had a look). He described the effect you get as looking like one of those cones that dog owners put around their dogs to stop them biting other dogs. It is a good description.
You do get a tunnel effect which I found actually helped in focusing in on the board and the ring was forgotten instantly. You really would have to be way off the board to hit it! My other thoughts from a player improvement angle was emphasising what a crucial part the eyes play in playing better darts. I would argue that with the clarity offered by the Vision 360 unit, this will help you in focusing in on your target (excuse the pun). So if you are looking for an edge to improve, if lighting is an issue where you play then this is a must and anyone out there with a darting man cave then you do need one of these to finish the look.
They are priced just above 100 pound, yes it is a lot of money but well worth it in my opinion.
So Much for the Darts Performance Centre Review.
As Target tells us 125 separate LED lights are included in the steel frame which is shaped to only light the dartboard without casting any light on the player. The included low-voltage cable is re-enforced and will not be damaged by direct dart hits. You can use all competition dart boards with the light and it will be locked at the wall with by a titan dartboard locking bracket with adjustable feet. The feet are adjustable from the front. You can easily turn your board by removing the feet from the wall.
