DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Night Fury - 60 inch - 20-50 lbs - Hybrid bow
The DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Night Fury is a successful combination of different, harmonising materials. Dymondwood in the risers, black fibreglass laminate in the limbs and bamboo strips that "frame" the risers and run through the entire bow result in a compact, slender and pleasantly light bow.
The Dymondwood used is an innovative material consisting of several layers of wood bonded with epoxy resin to form a highly stable material. The processing of different layers of wood enables a colour design that creates an absolutely unique look in black and grey. The colouring makes the bow look mysterious and mystical, as if it has just escaped the depths of the night but also feels most at home there. Perhaps this is why DRAKE Archery chose the name "Night Fury", as this name translates as wildness and temperament. Two characteristics that are well known in archery. Apart from its stunning appearance, the material Dymondwood naturally also offers a number of technical advantages that make it so interesting for bow making: it is light, absorbs vibrations and allows for faster, more consistent shooting.
The grip area, which looks very slim at first glance, is actually "different" the first time you take it in your hand, because its ergonomic shape with a relatively flat palm rest is dimensioned to fit perfectly in your hand. This gives the bow a pleasant lightness and the shooter good control over it.

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.
