The new Unicorn Eclipse HD2 dartboard is to be used for the first time in competition at the Betway World Cup of Darts, following the unveiling of the revolutionary new product.

The Eclipse HD2 board will feature ground-breaking technology, setting a new standard for dartboards in both look, performance and quality.

Using the finest "Grade A" sisal, the dartboard also features the new Spider2 Radial Wires and Super Thin Bullseye which provide for a seamless playing surface, improved playing areas around the bullseye and the most visually-stunning dartboard ever.

In addition, a new-look invisible number ring also features Injection Moulded High Definition Replaceable Numbers.

The Unicorn Eclipse HD2 dartboard will be used for the first time at the Betway World Cup of Darts from June 2-5, live on Sky Sports, following the new five-year contract agreed recently between Unicorn Darts and the PDC to continue as the official dartboard suppliers.

"We are very excited about our new Eclipse HD board," said Unicorn Darts Managing Director Edward Lowy. "Over the long history of Unicorn and the PDC, we have introduced various iterations of the Eclipse board.

"Each one has been an improvement on its predecessor, and we're convinced that the HD2 will help take the game to the next level.

"It's all about focus and allowing the players to just to focus on what they are so good at doing, which is scoring.

"We've made a dartboard with some key new features; there are no radial intrusions around the edge, a new bullseye with thinner metal - we are freeing up quite a significant bit of the bullseye.

"We're now using an invisible number ring and clear, rotatable numbers - even in different colours if customers want them!

"We have the greatest respect for the players. This is a professional sport and aspiring people look at what's happening on the PDC circuit and want to have a crack at that, and it's only right that the manufacturers, designers and technicians step up to the mark."

"We're very much looking forward to seeing it being used for the first time.
