In a workshop where legends are forged, nestled in the land beneath a long white cloud, our boffins, tinkerers and dartisans are hard at work dreaming up the world’s most ingenious darts. To inspire each player to write their own glorious saga, and unleash the mythical warrior, strategist or trailblazer within.
We’ve been obsessed with making exceptional darts loved by players since 1970. It’s all we do. And today every barrel is still 100% designed, prototyped and made right here in the Shot Darts factory in Katikati, New Zealand. We invite players of all levels to ‘So let go, leave the world behind and come find your tribe, with Shot’.
