DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Zorse - 54 inch - 20-45 lbs - Hybrid Bow
In the animal world, a Zorse is a cross between a horse and a zebra, a hybrid. The DRAKE ARCHERY ELITE Zorse feels obliged to this and also comes along as a "hybrid", because as a hybrid bow it is also the best of two worlds: At first glance it looks like a longbow, but at 54 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, slender 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 colour yellow, which dominates the bow, is usually associated with brightness and joy. The Zorse feels obliged to this and conveys pure joy and a certain lightness to the archer as soon as he takes it in his hand. Yellow also stands for a sharp mind and high intellect - a colour choice that is more than appropriate for archery. In contrast to red, which has a physically stimulating effect, yellow inspires the spirit.
The grip section, which at first glance appears very slim, is nevertheless "different" the first time you take it in your hand. Its ergonomic shape with a relatively flat palm rest is dimensioned in such a way that it fits perfectly in the hand and gives the archer good control over the bow.
The Dymondwood used is an innovative material, made of several layers of wood bonded with epoxy resin to form a highly stable material. The different layers of wood allow a completely new colour design than known from wood and provide an absolutely unique look in yellow and brown tones. But this material also offers some technical advantages: It is light, absorbs vibrations and allows for faster, more even shooting.

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.
