ABOUT US

Darts are in our DNA. We've been obsessing about darts since the 1970s, when John McCormick created Puma Darts and started a revolution, making the game of darts more accurate, accessible and fun.

We've been pushing the boundaries of both tradition and innovation ever since – from creating the world's first bladed dart board to our latest Shot dart ranges that look, feel and perform like nothing else out there.

We design our dart ranges for optimum aerodynamics and tight grouping. Prototyped and tested by uncompromising dart players, precision-machined, milled and plated with state of the art machinery at our factory. Meticulously crafted to last and built to win, each dart set runs the gauntlet to bear the Shot Darts name
