To celebrate 50 years of dedication to making darts, Shot wanted to create something special for their 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.
