Dual Caged Riser
Elite was the first company to introduce the Riser Cage - pushing the boundaries of what is possible. A cage integrated into the riser promotes stability and balance by reinforcing the areas of the riser that tend to bend or are subjected to extra stress. The larger cross-section of the cage in the important transition areas not only stiffens the riser as a whole, but also helps to prevent vibrations during firing.
Cam bearing made of stainless steel
The ELITE Basin is equipped with stainless steel cam bearings. Stainless steel is rust and corrosion resistant and, with proper care, will provide worry-free use and a smooth shooting experience for years to come.
Aluminium Cams, Mods & Limb Pockets
The cams, mods and limb pockets of the ELITE Basin are made entirely of aluminium. Nowhere on the Basin has plastic been used - this is one of the reasons why ELITE offers superior quality and shootability in every bow at every price point.
The Basin features an adjustable module that easily adjusts to a draw length of 16 to 30 inches, allowing the growing archer to grow along with 1/2-inch increments. ELITE's integrated limb stoppers provide a solid backboard that other bows simply can't match.
You are purchasing an article that we do not have in stock ourselves but order from the wholesaler for you. It usually arrives in 5-7 workdays at our premises and will then be sent to you immediately. This is why the website will state a delivery time of max. 8-9 workdays.
Our shop system, however, cannot keep up with the large stock of the wholesalers and suppliers. Even the wholesaler might not have every variation in stock at all times. Because of that, we might have to order the article directly from the manufacturer (Asia, America). In such cases, the delivery might take up to 12 weeks. In special cases, the article is made specifically for you and can take even longer to be delivered.
You will receive an information with a more precise time of delivery immediately after your order. If possible, we will also offer you some alternatives. Thank you very much for your understanding.
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.
