Since 1950, Darton has earned a reputation for performance that has become legendary. Our philosophy is based on a core desire to design and build the ultimate hunting bow. Many companies claim to have it, but we believe that perfection cannot exist in an imperfect world. For Darton, perfection is the pursuit of excellence; the drive that fuels technological advancement. This drive for excellence can become more than an obsession. For us, it has become our reason for existence.

CPS-G2™ CAM SYSTEM Quieter, smoother and faster than any other Cam System available, Darton’s patented, new CPS-G2™ Cam System is the first of it’s kind; a true, 2-1/2 Cam System that combines the speed and performance of dual-cam bows with the simplicity, accuracy and shootability of Darton’s CPS™ Hybrid Cam technology. This new level of performance couples the upper and lower cams together, thereby acting as “slaves” to each other. This eliminates the timing, let-off and synchronization challenges associated with dual-cam bows of the past. No matter how hard you pull against the draw stops or how far you are from optimum tune, the nock travel and stored energy are smooth, predictable and totally consistent. All G2 Cams include Darton’s patented Tuning Mark System™ which makes setup a snap. A bow press is not needed to change draw lengths. Each cam uses interchangeable modules enabling a total of 5 inches of draw length change in 1/2 inch increments. Once the draw length is changed there is no need to re-tune the bow. Finally, man has bridged the technology barriers, going beyond dual-cam performance and into the world of the NEW Hybrid Cam

Performance is in the Details Darton AXIS™ risers are CNC-machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, resulting in the lightest and strongest risers available today. Darton’s EFLEX™ Pre-Loaded Energy Limbs work in concert with CPS-G2™ Cam Systems, resulting in more durability and energy delivery. Darton’s MACH- I™ Laminated Performance Limbs work in concert with CPS-G2™ Cam Systems, resulting in a more durable and even higher energy delivery system.

Darton’s LimbLok™ Limb Bolt Locking System allows the limb bolts to be easily adjusted and securely locked in place. Darton’s VibraGrip™ Custom Molded Grips reduce unwanted hand shock while providing a comfortable, slip-free feel. Realtree Hardwoods Green HD® camo gives hunters a versatile camo, suitable for use in most bowhunting environments.

The first time you shoot a new Darton Pro Series™ bow it will leave you completely blown away. That’s because you will have just experienced the next generation of Darton’s Hybrid Cam technology; the new CPS-G2™ Cam System. Darton’s CPS-G2™ Cams take bow performance way beyond that of both single-cam and 1-1/2 cam systems, truly combining dual-cam performance with the accuracy and ultra-smooth shootability Darton CPS bows are famous for. Whether you’re a serious big-game hunter or a top level competitor, the new Pro Series brings you state-of-the-art CPS-G2™ cam technology that will change the way you think about bow performance forever. The specs speak for themselves.

The Pro 3000 became known as one of the best performing bows available in 2008. As a result of it’s outstanding performance and acquired reputation, it has remained unchanged in the Pro Series. In 2008, the AS300™ became one of the most soughtafter hunting bows on the market, and for good reason. Built around Darton’s innovative CPS-G2™ Cam technology the AS300 was top-shelf fast and deadly accurate right out of the box, forging the beginning of a new class of performance hunting bows. In 2009, Darton followed up on the AS300’s success by upgrading it to Pro Series and renaming it the Pro1000, making it one of the best performance values in it’s class.
