Mightymast Leisure Plain Dartboard Mat

Mightymast Leisure Plain Dartboard Mat

First Impressions

If you are at home playing darts in your garage or games room you might just like to practice casually. You will probably mark a line or stand at a certain distance based on your ability, but standing at the correct distance is the only way you are going to get consistency, both with your practice and when translating this to competition or the pub dartboard environment.

The humble darts mat may seem like a basic accessory to a good darts board, but it is often forgotten. You could still measure out the correct distance for your ability, but the darts mat can be moved and rolled up and away when it isn’t needed, giving you the perfect distance when you decide to practice.

Here we have the MightyMast Rubber Darts Mat. This is a high quality darts mat, and the humble rubber mat is very durable, as you probably already know from rubber door mats. The classic black and white colour does not distract the player when they are throwing, and only the basic information that is necessary is included on the mat.

My Experience

We have 4 different distances measured out, and these are 7ft 6in, 7ft 9 ¼ in, 8ft and 8ft 6 in. You typically stand with your foot sideways to the line, but as long as you are behind the line you are okay, and the flexibility of the mat means that it can be stored so easily away when not in use. I must say, this mat may roll up easily, but it is a heavy old lump, and we often just roll ours up and leave it up against the skirting board!

The mat can be used indoors and also outdoors, and it would survive living outside in the elements. We keep ours indoors most of the time, and when it does go outside it will never stay out all night if we know it is going to rain. When you see the cost you will understand why, and this is not a brand we are familiar with, so I wouldn’t say you are paying a premium for the brand, either!

This particular mat is made from tough and durable nitrile rubber, which is 14mm thick. This is thick enough to give you that quality feel, but it still rolls up easily. The textured surface is non-slip, which suggests it is intended for outdoor use to some extent. The mat can be cleaned easily, but you probably won’t find the need to clean it too often, but a hosepipe does the trick, coupled with hanging it to drip dry for a short while.

The mat weighs over 6 kilograms, and this became apparent as soon as it was delivered to our door. The one advantage of this is that the mat is not going to blow away in windy conditions! Some of the lines are showing slight wear, and this is to be expected, but we know it will last for many years before we will not be able to see the white markings any more.

Price and Availability

The price was a bit of a shock to us when we bought the mat, especially considering other brands were charging around the £25 to £30 mark for their versions. The MightyMast Rubber Darts Mat is priced at £59.99, but this is a purchase you are only likely to make once. I cannot defend the pricing, but we have seen cheaper mats in local pubs and clubs that are a little easier to trip over than this one due to their light weight, and at least we know this one is not going to split or crack any time soon.

Final Thoughts

You are likely to opt for a cheaper brand that the MightyMast model, but to be honest you do get what you pay for. If you have a setup in the garage then it could be worth investing in this mat, as you can run your car across it without a problem, but we don’t rest the wheels on the mat for any period of time. At 3 metres in length this darts mat is going to take up plenty of room, and not all games rooms are going to be able to accommodate it. If this is the case then you are probably not standing far enough away from your darts board, having a negative impact on your game when you go to the pub!
