Brian, I know Ted real well, worked a lot of hunting shows with him and for him, he also invited me up to the Darton plant for a tour and let me assembly a crossbow on the line a few years back... In fact I was just talking with him on FB yesterday.. Great guy and has been with Darton for years....Mike, i bought direct from Dartons website. Emailed back and forth with Ted, real nice , helpful guy
I would have bought from Wyvern , but he hasn't sold Darton in a few years.
This is my first Darton crossbow, i have owned a couple Darton Verts: avalanche, and maverick good bows....
My first Darton vertical bow was a SL50.....
