To celebrate 50 years of dedication to making darts, we wanted to create something special for our global tribe of players. The Warrior Kapene showcases where Shot has come from and embodies the spirit of where we’re going – a nod to our past and future.

Kapene translates as Captain – a tribal  leader to guide us into the next 50 years. This dart is inspired by our home, and honours the warrior within. We commissioned Tauranga carver Whare Thompson to design a sleeve ‘Ta Moko’ tattoo that wraps around and runs along the length of the barrel and is echoed in the flight.

Forged through fierce competition and battle-hardened technique, honed since 1970, Warrior Kapene steps forward to steer our global tribe into the next 50 years. With a straight shape and centre weight, Kapene boasts a generous shark grip along the barrel. Rear and front scallops give this 90% Tungsten dart set two positive throw areas – for a strong push and a sure reference point.  Armoured in superfine Titanium with a laser-etched Ta Moko (tribal tattoo) sleeve that’s echoed in its flight.

The Kapene is a very agile dart, with grip featuring along the entire barrel, dart players can find positive finger placement at any point. A slight front scallop follows the smooth ring grip nose; then flows on to a telescopic-like wide shark grip. A more extensive scallop features at the rear of the dart. The decorative Cinder Grip has been laser applied and adds a layer of superfine traction which aids a controlled throw.

Warrior - Arm your arm

The Warrior has evolved. 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. Its straight-as-an-arrow barrel gives you extra assurance with a true grip that runs front to middle.

By popular demand, the Warrior 3 has been designed with a sleek, streamlined nose, and is a great dart for most players, particularly if you grip the barrel in the front to middle. Choose the Warrior, and unleash the warrior within this weekend.

Barrel Design:  Streamlined nose area with additional grip factor area in front to mid area.

Design inspiration straight from tattoo artist Ruatoto Henry:
‘When I look at a dart it looks like a Taiaha (traditional maori fighting weapon) and I was thinking how could I really bring this to life with my art?  The barrel represents a kind of puhoro (maori for tattoo) arrow, which was often featured in contemporary tattoo design.  The flight design has a stronger reference to traditional warrior tattoos, which usually featured on the backs of thighs.  Other words of inspiration for me were; dynamic, streamline, fearsome, weapon, power, leadership, spearheads, fighting and death.’

Rua’s response when he saw this artwork featured in the final product was ‘it looks so sick’.
