DS-3800

A Muscle Bow with Manners! The DS-3800 is the best choice for the majority of serious Bowhunters and/or 3D Shooters; a no compromise bow with speed to burn. The speed this bow is capable of makes judging distance a less critical part of the equation. Some shooters have found that when they switch to the DS3800 they can drop down in bow weight and still shoot the same arrows faster and flatter. Because of Darton’s continued efforts to improve, one of the main features that set the DS-3800 apart from the rest of the crowd is its shoot-ability. With its smooth draw cycle, forgiving valley, and dampened shooting characteristics, Darton has truly created “A Muscle Bow with Manners!”

DS-3900

Smooth, Quiet & Just Plain Fast! The DS-3900 is a modified version of the Darton Flagship DS-3800, but uniquely different in many ways. Using the DS-3800 riser equipped with modified EET Laminated Quad Limbs to power the latest design DualSync Cams raises both the maximum speed and efficiency of the DS-3900. Take notice of the comfortable, well-balanced feel in the hand that is missing from most low brace height bows. The DS-3900 features an aggressive draw cycle with the lower brace height, a true Muscle Bow. Competitive sports speak of players that have “It”, that unrivaled trait that brings out the best performance to win. Once you shoot the DS-3900, you will say this bow has “It”. If you have a short draw length and feel you’ve had to settle for something less than top performance you need to try this bow.

DS-4800

Over-the-Top Shootability! The DS-4800 is a long 37 5/8” axle-to-axle bow with a 7 3/8” brace height and draw lengths available up to 31 1/2”. Finger shooters will find the reduced string angle a plus. The reduced power stroke, resulting from the higher brace height, makes this bow an excellent choice when competing in tournaments where you’re shooting a lot of arrows. The DS-4800 features a removable arrow shelf for the spot shooter with a preference. If you want less shooter fatigue from a bow, but still want over-the-top forgiveness, shootability, and performance, the DS-4800 should be your choice. With its redesigned riser and limb pockets for a more controlled shot, things just keep getting better. Available with 65% or 80% draw length modules.

DS-4800 3D The Best of All Worlds!

Taking the successful DS-4800 design and refocusing on performance, the limbs length are shorter, resulting in a lower brace height and an increased power stroke at all draw lengths. This has produced more stored energy and better performance while retaining most of the shooting attributes of the DS-4800. These changes have also made this bow better suited for the shorter draw archer that wants to shoot a DS-4800. The bow will live up to all of your expectations.

VEGAS

The Ultimate in a Spot Bow! The New Vegas features a redesigned riser and a new limb pocket design for better control of limb alignment and a more controlled shot. The Vegas has a 38 ½” axle-to-axle dimension and an 8” brace height, with draw lengths available up to 32”. The reduced power stroke, resulting from the higher brace height, makes this bow an excellent choice when competing in tournaments where shooter fatigue can become an issue. With its 8” brace height and stellar level of performance, arrow time on the string is reduced to a minimum. If you want to shoot your very best, and shooter fatigue, over-the-top forgiveness and over-all shoot-ability are a priority, than the Vegas should be your choice. You will not find any bow easier to hold on the spot. Available with 65% or 80% draw length modules.

VEGAS 3D

Straight Shot to the Podium! The Vegas 3D could be considered a compromise bow when compared to the Vegas. However, when compared to most any other bow it is a hand’s down winner. The Vegas limb length has been shortened, resulting in a lower brace height and an increase in its power stroke at all draw lengths, while retaining the desired balance of the Vegas. This has produced more stored energy and better performance while retaining most of the shooting attributes of the Vegas. These changes have also made this bow better suited for the shorter draw archer that wants to shoot a Vegas with a little more speed. Available with 65% or 80% draw length modules.

EXECUTIVE The Ideal 3D Bow!

The Executive, a Shoot Through version of the successful DS-3800, tweaked for the tournament shooter. Its redesigned riser and new limb pocket design are the results of our continued efforts to improve an already great bow. With its 7” brace height, we have reduced the fatigue factor that can become an issue at any shoot, while retaining most of the performance and all of the favorable attributes of the 3800. With the balanced design only found with a Darton Shoot Through, we have produced the ideal 3D bow.

“The Perfectly Balanced Shooter System” Darton introduces the first truly balanced Shooting System. Never before has there been a bow with all these symmetrical and synchronized attributes. With the bowstring in the center of a completely symmetrical system, with dual cable rods, the cable tension is equal on both sides of the cam, totally eliminating cam lean. With the riser being symmetrical and not subject to creating its own twisting forces it can direct all the force directly behind the shot and in line with the center of the arrow producing unparalleled forgiveness. The advantages of the DualSync Cam System are very evident with the Vegas and Executive series of bows. If you want to fine-tune the way your bow feels when entering the valley, adjust the perimeter draw stop against the let-out cable to get the feel you are looking for. With this synchronized cam system these bows will always have straight nock travel with less sensitivity to tuning and grip pressures than any other cam system available today.

DS-700

Compact Performance! If you want a short, fast, quiet bow to use in your blind or treestand the DS-700 is your bow. Powered by a new version of the DualSync cam system with an adjustable module system that allows adjustments from 27” – 30” of draw length in 1/2” increments. An adjustable draw stop on the perimeter of the cam stops against the limb allowing you to fine tune your draw length and let-off. The DS-700 cam also features a cam stabilization system that eliminates cam lean. When you pick up a DS-700, you will notice right away it shares many of the features and attributes of other Darton DualSync bows: fast, quiet and smooth draw cycle, you will know you are shooting a winner. The 30” axle to axle will make this your “go to” bow when hunting and space are mentioned in the same sentence. You will find very few bows with the pricing, performance and features offered by the DS-700.

DS-700SD Short and Sweet!

The DS-700SD has all the features and advantages of the DS-700 with its own cam designed for the shooter with a shorter draw. With an adjustable draw length of 24 – 28”, in ½” increments, this bow will fit the shorter draw archer and provide features and performance not found with any other bow in this price range.

EXCITER

When performance is a must! Uniquely designed for young adults and lady archers who are tired of shooting kids bows. With its slim line grip and a modest weight of only 3.4 pounds it makes for a very controllable bow. The Exciter is for archers with a short draw length that want performance with a bow that has a peak weight in the 35-50 pound range. It’s powered by Darton’s Patented DualSync Cam System for unbelievable speed and shootability at draw lengths of 22” to 27.5”. The Exciter fills that gap where Draw Length, Weight or Speed have been an issue. For the archer with a short draw length that has had a hard time getting performance, the Exciter fills that void! Pound for pound, this bow shoots as well as any Pro Series bow. Available in draw weights 35-50 pounds.

RECRUIT

Recruiting new Archers! The Recruit is the bow for the young archer that isn’t quite ready to move up to an Exciter, but still wants a serious full feature bow. The Recruit features a short axle-to-axle measurement of 28 1/2”, a draw length range of 21 ½ – 27”, and a forgiving 6 ¾” brace height. Add to this adjustable draw weight of 25-35 pounds and can see how it’s ready for that serious young archer. Powered by the patented DualSync Cam System mounted on ball bearings, the Recruit promises to have a smooth, efficient draw cycle. Darton has added their low mount Bowstring Suppression System that virtually eliminates any string noise or vibration from an already smooth shooting bow. With a light weight of 3.1 lbs., the Recruit is perfect for anyone that wants a small, lightweight bow. This bow will make you rethink what you can expect from a small package. The level of adjustability and performance has to be experienced to believe. Darton believes this is the right bow to “Recruit New Archers”.

AQUAFORCE A real scale buster!

Finally, a bow designed for bow fishing! Not just something painted blue with a line and arrow attached to it. This is a real scale buster! The first time you draw back the Aquaforce, you’ll notice this isn’t your average compound bow. This bow reaches its peak weight (adjustable 40# - 55#) early without strain and then lets down to a comfortable weight (20# - 27#) so you can complete the draw cycle (23”- 29-½”) with minimum effort. The string can be comfortably released anytime during the draw cycle with deadly results. This enables you to enjoy hours of shooting with plenty of penetrating power, just what you want when bow fishing. With molded cams, self lubricating bearing and stainless steel axles there isn’t much you can do to this bow while fishing that can cause a bow problem. The only time you would want to adjust the draw length is if you were going to use an arrow shorter than 30”. You would then adjust its draw stop so you can’t overdraw the arrow. The Aquaforce has all the standard mounting holes so all bow fishing accessories easily bolt on.
