DRAKE Black Raven 2.0 - 56-60 in. - 30-60 lbs - Recurve bow
The new Black Raven 2.0 is a consistent further development of the popular Black Raven! Most striking is certainly the new design of the riser, with its rounder, more modern shapes and extravagant throwing arm holders. These make the limbs look as if they are only held by the limbs screw and otherwise float in the riser. Otherwise it remains true to itself and continues to appear in complete black.
A further innovation is that the DRAKE Black Raven 2.0 can now be chosen even more individually. The DRAKE Black Raven 2.0 is now available as a three-part recurve bow with a length of 56, 58 or 60 inches. In combination with the throwing arms made of strong bamboo wood and black fibre glass, which can be selected in possible draw weights between 30 and 60 lbs (in 5 lbs steps), every shooter will find the bow that suits him or her best.
And of course the Black Raven 2.0 does not do without a visor, stabilizer and button bush.

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.
