JACKALOPE Flint - 60"-64" - Recurve bow - 20-45 lbs
The JACKALOPE Flint riser is perhaps the most natural looking Teknowood riser you have ever seen. The innovative Teknowood - a highly stable combination of several layers of wood and epoxy resin - gives the grip its characteristic look with clearly visible layers and stripes. The colouring in Warm Brown, Shiny Silver or Deep Black gives it the look of a classic banded flint. Each bow is unique and underlines the personal individuality of each shooter.
The Flint Stone is not only one of the most important healing stones, no, it was already used in the Stone Age for the production of tools and weapons, in the Middle Ages it was used to produce a spark for flintlock rifles. This also led to the colloquial name "flint stone". This "fire" rests in the stone and is said to strengthen self-confidence and give new élan. It grounds its wearer and creates an atmosphere of peace and serenity. This makes the Flint a more than fitting name for this riser.
Of course, it is not only the look that is impressive: the Teknowood used absorbs vibrations reliably and allows faster, more even shooting. In combination with the matching JACKALOPE JLS throwing arms in elegant matt black or natural bamboo look, a fascinating, high-performance recurve bow is created that will always be a faithful companion for every shooter.
With the Jackalope Limb System, JLS for short, Jackalope Archery has developed the promising system for take-down bows. All limbs in our JLS series can be combined with the JLS-compatible grips from Jackalope. The draw weight changes only slightly. Of course, the typical Jackalope Archery 30-year guarantee remains valid - no matter which combination is used.
SPEED - Carbon for even more speed
In the speed versions the JACKALOPE Flint is even faster! An additional layer of carbon further improves the already good-natured characteristics of the bow. It makes the bow more forgiving and ensures a tighter and more accurate hit when shooting. But how does it achieve this? Very simple: The carbon inlay not only makes the limbs lighter and more torsionally stiff, but also makes them about 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.
