What are the other lines on a darts oche for?

Oches often have three or four different lines to throw from. What are they all used for?

Good question!

In general people play from 7ft 9 1/4in line which is regulation in both the BDO and PDC.

The other lines are really just used as a variation in different locations/leagues or just to mix it up.

The 8ft line is often used when playing on a soft tip board as used frequently in North America and Asia.
