JACKALOPE Malachite - Become one with nature
The JACKALOPE Malachite bows will always be reliable archer's friend on your way through forests and meadows. The wonderful combination of green-black Dymondwood in the handle area with fine layers of light maple and black glass on the limbs all over the bow. The green-black colour of the handle looking very much like malachite makes the bow look so exciting and different from traditional bows.
Of course, it's not just the look that impresses: the slim, fast-flight tips and the slim, very elegant limbs ensure high speeds and more precise hits. The innovative Dymondwood - a highly stable compound of several layers of wood and epoxy resin - which is processed in the grip area, absorbs vibrations and allows for faster, smoother shooting. The grip is optimised to eliminate hand shock as far as possible without compromising the great shooting characteristics. With its 60 inches, the Malachite is a successful one-piece recurve bow that lets you merge with nature when shooting outdoors.
New in 2021 - The Malachite Carbon
The latest edition of the highly popular Malachite now brings a carbon inlay inside the limb into play. The section of the recurves up to the tips is reinforced with a carbon layer. This results in even higher stability and torsional stiffness. Even in full draw, just in the moment before the release of the string, the Malachite remains stable and rewards the shooter with an even better shooting performance.

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.
