DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Dark Phoenix - 60" - 30-50 lbs - Take Down Recurve bow
Dark Phoenix - A legendary name for a powerful bow! DRAKE ARCHERY chose the name for this bow carefully. It was not born from the ashes, but its colouring in deep black and orange-red is reminiscent of the dawn at sunrise, the time when the Phoenix rises.
Of course, it is not only the unusual and very interesting colouring that is convincing about the Dark Phoenix. The riser, 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 foundation and leaves the natural grain of the wood clearly visible.
Completing the riser are the DRAKE Traditional Performance limbs, made from maple and dark Dymondwood and named for a reason. Made of plain black DRAKE Power Glass over a core of high-quality maple wood and dark Dymondwood in the area of the limb mountings, the DRAKE Traditional Performance limbs - almost unique in this price segment - have Fast-Flight tips that, in combination with a matching Fast-Flight string, get the maximum performance out of every bow.
The result is a compact bow with a particularly smooth draw, very good throwing performance, optimal arrow speeds and an almost complete reduction of vibrations in the grip.

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.
