Description

DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Nightfall - ILF - 58-62" - 24-62 lbs - Recurve Bow

A traditional recurve bow with ILF system! - This is the DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Nightfall. The 17 inch riser is a unique combination of the ultramodern material Dymondwood and an extraordinary color scheme. Dymondwood is an innovative material, made of several layers of wood, which are connected with epoxy resin to a highly stable material. In addition, the different layers of wood make it possible to create a completely new color scheme for the riser and to create an absolutely unique blue and black look. From a technical point of view, however, this material also offers several advantages: It absorbs vibrations and allows for faster, more consistent shots.

ILF - Maximum flexibility!

While traditional wooden risers usually only have the option of using special screw-in limbs, the Nightfall riser is equipped with an ILF limb system. ILF stands for "International Limb Fitting" system, which is a standardized mount where the limbs are not screwed to the riser but simply plugged in. This system allows full flexibility when it comes to the choice of limbs and is not limited to one brand.

Determination of the draw hand

The draw hand is the hand that draws 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.
