A very humble beginning in 1950, in a simpler time, Darton Archery started making leather archery accessories. Darton expanded its growth through its early years making traditional recurve bows. With the introduction of the compound bow, Darton Archery and Rex Darlington became one of the few companies to produce the new bow; a bow with wheels on each end which would become the blueprint for the modern compound bow used today.
Fast forward to today, Darton has become the world's leader in archery technology and innovation, and manufacturer of compound bows. Darton is still a humble family-owned company with one motivation: pushing the limits of its engineering to produce the best performing archery equipment. Darton continually improves its line of bows, holding onto its proven design basics while applying new innovations to an outstanding lineup of compound bows and crossbows for target and 3D competition, and for our primary obsession, hunting! Our bows are designed for men, women, and the youth market.
