EK ARCHERY Kirupira - 15-20 lbs - Compound Bow
The EK ARCHERY Kirupira is a compact compound bow for children and young people between the ages of 10 and 14. Its high-quality plastic construction is very stable and not only gives the bow its robust and professional appearance, but also makes it ideal for beginners in the world of archery.
Due to the special construction with cables and cams (pulleys), the principle and function of the compound bow is similar to that of the pulley. This means that considerably less force is required from the archer to pull the actual draw weight of 15-20 lbs (adjustable). The cables and cams also allow the bow to be adjusted in draw weight (15 or 20 lbs) and draw length (22 or 24 inches).
Included in this comprehensive set is already an mounted quiver for 4 arrows, 2 fibreglass arrows with 26 inch length as well as a pin sight, an arrow rest, an arm guard and a finger tab.
Only available as a right-handed model.

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.
