Hey all you histroy buffs...
I have a 1970 ish Darton Fury. I was with Dad when he bought it best we can pin it down to is 1970- 72. Dartons web sight has the 1969 catalog has a fury in it but not the same one. it then jumps to 1974 and no fury listed, there was a fury sl.. but stilll no not my bow. its listed again in 75 but we know for a fact, he already had his, (now mine). and its still not right. here is a picture..

AMO is 60" we are looking for any info you all have ...want to find another one ..as of yet no luck.. so come on guys dust off them ole books , let me know what info you have on this bow ....string length, Brace height, anything.. far as we know we have the only one..lol so post up, talk to me.. See The ole man wants to finger walk again and just enjoy the mystic flight of the arrow.
we have been on e-bay. missed out on a few realy nice sticks others well they just want too much..and never have seen another Fury.. If you find one in photo bucket by liv2hunt_or, Thats Mine!!

Yeah string is still too long, brace is at 9 3/8" giving up some power stroke, string hits me higher on my forearm than I remember, still showing over a 1/2 inch of string grove at the limb tips. Shoots good, but think she can do better, used to shoot without any thing on the string and she was quiet, right now, a bit twangy without the wiskers/ spiders on the string. Looking thru the old Darton catalogs the closest bow we can find is a 1975 Fury, same AMO length, ie: 60" with a brace of 8 1/4 to 9 1/4", so currently an 1/8" over that. How much longer should string be to drop the brace about an inch?

that 75 fury shows it needs a 57" string so 1/2 longer then we have now

any one know why they ( darton ) have the string lengths blacked out in the catalog and new one's wrote next to it.. I have to asume its because the 4" shorter then AMO is wrong... any other input... fealing ignored here :confused:

I would go with 3" under and twist from there to get the bh where ya want it...

Thats the plan as it is i went 3 1 /2 and its just too Short at 56.5.. so was thinking 57 1/4 twist that to fit.... I took just about all the twist out i can as it is.. Just need some string and a Jig...lol BH is now 9 5/16 still 1/16 over what i am to assume is top end of BH .. 75 fury is 8 1/4 - 9 1/4..ugggg New string again...

uuuhh, that would be too SHORT, longer string = lower brace. Just sayin, Son. :)
Oh nice go back and CHANGE your post, you kids.....

If it were 4" under that would be 56" sorry Dad

looks like the 3" under They added to old catalogs is closer

Up date, Bought a string for a 62" bow and twisted the thing to get brace height down to 8 1/18 still twisting and shooting... since we twisted it, every few shots that settles and needs a re twist
All I want this 58" string for was to set the BH @ the sweet spot.. once thats done I will Order that length...:cool: Should be around 57"
more twisting and now @ 8 1/2 seams to like it there
