Our Story

Founder Puma Darts

Shot Darts has been a permanent fixture on the world darts stage for almost 50 years. Our story begins in 1970 in Katikati, New Zealand, with the establishment of Puma Dart Products.

Running almost as soon as we could walk, we started designing products with a distinct difference, like The Bandit, the world’s first bladed bristle dart board.

In 2009, Puma Darts saw an opportunity to maximise its impact on the world stage with a high-quality, precision dart brand that would resonate with a global audience, and the Shot Darts brand was born.

We’ve set about making the game of darts more accessible, more fun and more accurate for everyone from absolute newcomers to weekend warriors to seasoned pros. Our support of the game doesn’t stop with our products. As well as sponsoring some of the best pro-players around like US Champion Chris White, our commitment to growing the game is reflected in our Young Guns program – which you’ve supported through your purchase.
