JACKALOPE Amber - Power and Dynamics in One Bow.
Do you love modern bows in traditional design? Then the JACKALOPE Amber is exactly what you are looking for! A one-piece recurve bow whose limbs in noble black perfectly complement the grip in warm brown and earth tones. Each bow is unique and underlines the personal individuality of each shooter.
The handle of the JACKALOPE Amber One Piece Recurve bow, for example, is made of naturally grown Amazoque wood, dark American black walnut and ultra-modern Mycarta, giving it its distinctive characteristics. The African Amazoque, with its distinct and very decorative grain, gives the handle a natural, warm appearance. In contrast, the dark wood of the American black walnut and the highly stable Mycarta, bring stability as an intermediate layer, minimises hand shocks and forms the decorative strip together with bamboo and maple wood. The limbs are made of spiderwood and black glass, whose silky matt colour is a perfect addition to the handle. All this together makes the JACKALOPE One Piece recurve bows fast, forgiving and very quiet.
Its eponym, the amber, is one of the oldest gemstones and healing stones in the world. It is an energetic protective stone that strengthens confidence and vitality. Its warm fire leads back to your own centre and supports you in energy-sapping situations. The perfect namesake for a perfect traditional bow.
SPEED - Carbon for even more speed
Of course, its traditional look is simple and beautiful at the same time, but the Amber by JACKALOPE Archery convinces above all with one thing: its speed. The Amber by JACKALOPE Archery has already been optimized for higher speeds on the drawing board thanks to its special bow geometry. The main focus in the design of this bow was therefore on its increased performance and optimal speed. These requirements are maximized by the optionally available speed versions. An additional layer of carbon improves the already good-natured characteristics of the bow. It makes the bow more forgiving and provides a narrower and more accurate hit pattern when shooting. But how does it do that? Quite simple: By the carbon inlay, the limbs are not only lighter and more distortion-resistant but also approx. 10fps faster.

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.
