DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Green Goblin - 60" - 30-50 lbs - Take Down Recurve bow
Poisonous green and perhaps a little cheeky like a green goblin! - That's how the DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Green Goblin recurve bow comes across. Its two-tone exterior in poisonous green and classic black is only interrupted by a narrow strip of bamboo that not only runs through the centrepiece but also visually forms the core of the limbs. The centrepiece itself is made of innovative Dymondwood - a highly stable material consisting of several layers of wood and epoxy resin. It absorbs vibrations and allows for faster, smoother shooting over the rounded shelf.
The 60 inch long bow is completed by the dark screw limbs. Made of black DRAKE Power Glass laminate with a core of high-quality bamboo wood and strong, dark-coloured layers of maple wood in the area of the limbs, the DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Green Goblin limbs offer everything you would expect from high-quality limbs: good stability, excellent performance and, of course, tips that are also suitable for Fast Flight strings.
Included in the delivery are two string dampers, which are simply woven into the bowstring and help to dampen the string vibrations after the shot and thus also reduce string noise. All in all, the result is a durable little hobgoblin - sorry! - Bow that feels good when shooting both indoors and outdoors.

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.
