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.

Love my new darts, the grip is just what I need. I'm getting used to the heavier weight but feel they are going straighter
I have bought these Warrior Kapene in both 22g and 23g versions. Absolutely love them! I was worried the grip level may not be strong enough for my needs. But as soon as I started throwing with them, I knew they were the dart for me. The grip is great. It has plenty there to ensure they do not slip through my fingers, yet it is not too over bearing. The balance of the darts are perfect in my opinion too. And they look great. I know that doesn't make them fly any better, but hey, it's always nice to have friends and other players comment on how good they look. I am also a big fan of the Tao Black Carbon shafts, though I do change them to the shorter length shafts. All up, I can't fault them and would highly recommend these darts to anyone considering trying them. You won't be disappointed.
