    I used to be a PSE shooter than tried the Darton line. My first one (which I still have) is the 70# Maverick Recurve Express. Really love this bow and can't see me ever getting rid of it. My wife shoots a Maverick XT and she too really loves her bow. 2 days ago, I bought a new Pro3000. I've only been able to shoot maybe a dozen arrows out of it so far but am already really liking it.

    is it safe to say that there are alot of shooters out there that are missing out on a great bow. I love my darton avalanche, for the little money i spent to buy it, i couldn't go wrong. Very overlooked bow right now.

    mine is a 2005 model with the latest of the hd green camo. looks fricking awesome. my boss has the magnum extreme with the older brownish camo, he saw mine and said it looked awesome!

    WooHoo!! 2nd Tempest 4th Darton on the wall right now!

    Been shooting Dartons since 2000.

    Just bought my 2nd 06 Tempest from Stenger Archery. This one is camo and will be my #1 hunting bow. I am very excited to get it and begin to outfit it for hunting.

    I love my competition Tempest a bunch. Beautiful, fast, quiet. Made me a better shooter overnight.

    So I'll sell one of my 2 Cyclones, I think the newer one, a Cyclone LD.

    My older Cyclone RC is pretty ratty looking. It was a bright finish competition bow and now has a hand painted flat finish. But it still shoots very well and will be my back up hunting bow.

    My Dartons are all solid shooters, quiet enough that people on the shooting line comment on the quiet and the speed together. . My Dartons are also very reliable and stable requiring little maintenance to keep their accuracy. I use good quality strings but not the expensive "Winners Choice" class stuff. Even so I only need to mess with synch and timing every couple of years, and never a limb problem.

    I wish I had a dealer in Chicagoland but honestly, I buy used and keep bows a long time, so I guess I wouldn't be much of a customer.

    Started out with the viper, the when the maverick was introduced in 96 i snatched one up. I am now currently shooting a 2002 model Maverick and love it. I have owned the Rebel, Rampage, Titan XT, Magnum 33, and the Maverick. It says alot about a company when your flagship bow is the same for 10 years. Best grip on the market, plenty fast, tuning marks still on the money, still shooting same factory strings and cables since i bought the 02. Set at 68lbs, 30" draw w/dloop, xx78 2213 super slams, with muzzy 4 blade 90gr broadhead through the chrono at 309 fps. I have fondled many bows the last few years but she always keeps me coming back for more. Todays new bows are just to short for my likeing and not nearly as forgiving as the 37 1/4 ata as my sweet ugly, outdated, past her prime,old and decreped bow. But to me she is a beauty.

    how come, they are close to the same speed as all the "fast" bows. Well accually they hit the advertised IBO not like some others with out having to be "super tuned"

    that's the only one negative i can say about the new line. I like what mathews did with the lighter weight drenalin. i think when they get over 4lbs. that's too heavy. Nontheless they shot awesome, much credit to darton. I wish they would get recognozed more.

    i had both 07pro3000and 08pro3000 07 was 60-70, 08 50-60, the 08 shot much better i dont know y, and the 08 was a little lighter for some reason. Darton bows have treated me well in the past shot some real smoker bucks i decided to try something new this year. Thanks Darton Bows for many years of fun and sucess.

    I've been shooting Darton since 1990, ooops 18 years..!! And I have no intention in buying/shooting another brand.

    I've heard of other "big brands" having alot of trouble with limbs and other stuff but I've never experienced any of that with a Darton bow!

    Right now I have a PRO3000 and that one is going to be around for a long time!

    I to thought the magnum was hard to shoot and hold steady. I bought the avalanche instead. It was easier to pull and hold steady, just a touch slower but more forgiving.

    Great grip and cam system, no vibe and stealth quiet.
    For $300 new i couldn't go wrong!
