You've seen Cornhole once on a video or Youtube, or maybe you played it in the neighbors garden. And now you also want a set yourself. But what should you choose? There are now quite a few providers and everything is quite similar. However, that is not always the case! We try to help you with a few useful tips.

Wicked Wood Cornhole Set
(ACL Rec - Recreational set)

Tip1: Take a good look at the thickness of the board and the frame

First of all, it is important to take a good look at the thickness of the board. Boards are already being offered that are only a few millimeters thick. The thinner the board, the more the pockets will go and the board will bounce. Ideally, you want a top layer that is as thick as possible. Of course it is true: the thicker, the more expensive. Our tip: Always go for a board that is at least 10mm thick, we strongly advise against less.

With Wicked Wood the thicknesses are as follows:

- Recreational boards: 10mm
- Competition boards: 15mm
- Professional boards: 18mm

ACL Pro Set

Tip 2: Always check whether you have the correct dimensions
The official dimensions of the ACL, the largest organization in the sport, can be easily found here. Boards need approximately a size of 120cm x 60cm for the competition version. 90x60cm boards are also offered, also by Wicked Wood, these are especially easier to carry but do not meet the competition conditions.

If you want to play real competitions, always go for the 120x60cm version. But also check whether the back of the board, when it is unfolded, is at the correct height.

Tip 3: Investigate whether the right material is being used
The best material for Cornhole boards is birch wood. And preferably Baltic birch wood. This ensures the most stable boards. Professional Cornhole sets are therefore always made of this type of wood.
So don't go for a set made of aluminum or plastic. But also check whether a cheaper type of wood has been used. This will ensure that the set plays less well and will last less long.

Tip 4: Consider which set suits you

At Wicked Wood we offer three different standards:

ACL Rec - Recreational sets, for the recreational player
ACL Comp - Competition sets for players who really want to play according to all official standards
ACL Pro - Professional sets, just as you know them from TV. Here all the professionals play

The difference lies in the thickness of the wood, the finish of the wood and the varnish. Below is a list of the differences:
ACL Rec - 10mm thick, straight finished corners, 2 coats of varnish
ACL Comp - 15mm thick, rounded corners, 3 coats of varnish
ACL Pro - 18mm thick, rounded corners, 8 layers of varnish



So think carefully about what you want as a player and which set fits best.

    Hi Cornholefreunde

    Ich heisse Claus Schmieder und spiele aktiv beim TopCorn Rust Cornhole. Da war ich auch schon öfters ganz oben auf dem Treppchen mit unserem Team bei deutschen Meisterschaften.
    Da ich jetzt aber nicht mehr dem DeCoV Vorstand angehöre und sich die Cornholegemeinde etwas spaltet, suche ich nach guten 1,20er Turnierbretter mit Folie.
    Da hätte ich gerne zwei Bretter mit einem Druck nach Vorbild einer regionalen Brauerei ( www.hieronymus.beer )
    Hintergrund in einer Bretteroptik, mittig groß das Brauereilogo bunt dazu auch ein Schriftzug.
    Können ihr mir da mal ein Angebot machen?
    Ich will diese Brauerei dann als Sponsor gewinnen für anstehende Turniere in Rust und als Werbebretter für unsere Vereins- und Jedermannsturniere.
    Gruß Claus
