SHOT YOUNG GUNS

True to our love of the game, we invest in the next generation through our ‘Young Guns’ sponsorship programme. This means future stars worldwide get the support they need, and can develop their game with the latest and greatest darts.

These bright young things – under the official youth age of 18 – are the future of our game. So Shot and our Senior Ambassadors are stoked to work with and mentor them on their path to greatness.

Our Young Guns have already included players from USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Hong Kong, and we look forward to helping even more set their sights on success.

One of them is Dawson Murschell – Canadian Young Gun and #1 ranked 2013 North American Youth player. “Being selected as a Puma Darts Young Gun has been a very prestigious achievement in my career. To be selected as one of the top Canadian young darters to represent Puma Darts is an honour. Being a Puma Darts Young Gun requires dedication, time, respect and practice – something all dart players everywhere should strive for.”

Spaces in our Young Guns programme are limited, and reviewed yearly to give promising players the opportunity, and respect players with commitments outside of darts.

NEW SHOT RANGE OVERVIEW

Make way for the new generation.
Extend your arm. Express your personality.

These good looking, high-performance new generation darts are the result of more than 45 years’ experience, and more than a million barrels. They’ve been tested where it counts, by players, refined, then tested again.

Made using our latest precision milling technology, this range is made in close collaboration with local artists and designers, and takes its attitude from New Zealand’s proud Pacific origins and ta moko tribal tattoos.

Not simply a piece of equipment – each dart is a seamless extension of the player. Worn for protection, identity and pure confidence. To fit your grip, and your personality.

Let’s play.

A little about the darts: Warrior – Arm your arm

Capturing the indigenous spirit of Pacific Warriors, the Warrior features tattoo design work from renowned New Zealand artist Ruatoto Henry. The flowing tattoo design includes the New Zealand fern, for abundance and good health (and great playing). With its bone white shaft and cinder grip™ (superfine grip technology) on the points and barrel, the Warrior represents a taiaha – a Maori spear used for close combat. The Warrior is a great dart for most players, especially if you like to grip the barrel in the middle to tail end. Choose the Warrior, and unleash the warrior within this weekend.
