Synco’s newest Championship carrom board is the Platinum Natural, a beautifully finished board with a 3″ x 2″ natural finish frame and 20mm Baltic Birch playing surface. Synco has been the leader in international championships equipment for years and their newest board is being used in ICF, AICF, and EEC championships. It should get 4-5 rebounds and has the very smooth, silky, Synco feel. Comes with Synco Platinum coins. Striker and stand not included. 46 lbs.
I found one of these boards in my “seconds” stack where I put boards that have some kind of cosmetic defect that I don’t want to sell as “first quality”. These defects do not affect the smoothness of the playing surface or the play of the game. This board is slightly high in the middle of the board, not visible to the naked eye, but evident when using a straight edge. “Domes” of up to 1.5mm are considered normal but when the gap below the straight edge exceeds 2mm, I set it aside as a second. This board has a 2.5mm dome and is typical of some Indian made boards due to a lack of technology to ensure flatness. The effect of such as dome will cause coins and striker to drift slightly away from the center as they come to rest. Good players will notice this and compensate when aiming. Price has been reduced $100.
