DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Ablaze - 62 Inch - 30-50 lbs - Hybrid Bow

Ablaze - The word for something that is on fire or glowing is more than appropriate when looking at the DRAKE ARCHERY Ablaze! This powerful bow is not really on fire, but its orange-red colouring with black accents makes it look as if it is glowing. The particularly eye-catching limbs, which have a bamboo core and are covered with clear glass, make the colour and grain of the wood stand out and give the whole bow something unusual and almost spectacular.

Of course, it is not only the very interesting colouring that is convincing about the Ablaze, but also the mix of materials and the shape. The grip area, for example, is made of Dymondwood, an innovative, highly stable material made of several layers of wood and epoxy resin, which absorbs vibrations and allows for faster, smoother shooting over the rounded shelf. As modern as this material is, it does not deny its basis and leaves the naturalness of the wood clearly visible.

In addition to its fascinating appearance, the DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Ablaze also impresses with the finesse of its bow class. No wonder, as a hybrid bow it combines the best of two worlds: At first glance it looks like a longbow, but at 62 inches it is clearly too short to be a "real" longbow. However, it makes up for the lack of size with the typical characteristic of a recurve bow, the clearly visible reflex-deflex shape in the limbs, and thus cleverly combines the characteristics of a longbow with those of a recurve bow. The result is a compact bow with a smooth draw, high arrow speeds and an almost complete reduction of vibrations in the grip. As is usual with a traditional longbow, the string of the hybrid bow does not touch the limbs, but only the tips.

The result is a compact bow with a particularly soft draw, very good throwing performance, optimal arrow speeds and an almost complete reduction of vibrations in the grip.

Right or left-hand?


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.
