BODNIK BOWS Dakota - 68 Inch - 20-55 lbs - Longbow
The archery and longbows have to go hand in hand. Therefore, it was time for BODNIK BOWS to design a new longbow. Smoked oak combined with an overlay of black glass and dark smoked oak makes the riser of the new Dakota very special. To make sure that the Dakota longbow has a lot of energy in the limbs, BODNIK BOWS added a layer of carbon underneath the stunning olive veneer. This allows the Dakota to be drawn softly and comfortably up to 30 inches. 68 inches long, simple and noble design with a lot of energy - this is the longbow Dakota!

Determination of the draw hand
The draw hand is the hand that pulls the string. This means that a right-hand bow is held in the left hand and pulled out with the right hand.
The determination of the personal draw hand has far less to do with whether one is left or right-hand than one might initially assume. Rather, it is a matter of determining the dominant eye. The dominant eye is used for targeting. This automatically results in the draw hand.
The term "dominant eye" refers to the eye the visual information of which superimposes everything. If a shooter would try to aim with the other eye, he would have to pinch the dominant eye.
There are two ways to determine the dominant eye: On the one hand, it is the eye that is generally preferred, for example when looking through the viewfinder of a camera, through the spyhole or similar situations. On the other hand, there is a small exercise with which the dominant eye can be determined beyond doubt:
- The arms are stretched out and with thumb and index fingers of both hands, a triangle is formed.
- The triangle is used to target a small target, such as a power socket or a cabinet knob. This object is focused.
- The hands are now slowly moved towards the face without the target being taken out of focus.
- The triangle of thumb and index fingers will automatically incline to one half of the face and the dominant eye will lie within it.
If eye and hand dominance do not match, the bow should still be selected according to eye dominance. The arms can easily be trained on the new draw hand, the eye cannot.
