JACKALOPE Moonstick Carbon - 50" - 20-50 lbs - One piece recurve bow
JACKALOPE ARCHERY has "shrunk" the Moonstone. By popular demand, the Moonstick has been developed as an incredibly short and yet incredibly comfortable bow, which convinces with excellent casting performance. The Moonstone inspires with an efficient shooting behaviour and a soft draw. Despite its very compact size of just 50 inches, it can be easily extended to 30 inches as smooth as butter and remains soft even at full draw without forming a noticeable wall. With its high arrow speeds, the Moonstick is beyond reproach.
Much like its big brother, dark shades of grey to deep black dominate the design and create a fascinating, timeless design. The colour scheme of the Moonstick is also based on black moonstones, a very rare variation of the usually light-coloured moonstones. The namesake is said to help relieve emotional tension, free from anxiety and promote intuition and determination.
The dark colouring underlines the charming look of grained wood. The bow is rounded off by a high-performance glass laminate, which gives the bow an almost smoky finish and further emphasises the grain of the limbs.
Of course, it is not only the look that impresses: the new member of the Jackalope Archery family convinces with a grip made of Dymondwood. This innovative material - a highly stable combination of several layers of wood and epoxy resin - absorbs vibrations almost completely and allows for faster, smoother shooting.
Of course, the carbon reinforced limbs with a core made of high-quality maple and a high-performance glass laminate also play a not insignificant role in this. The carbon is used here in the area of the recurves right up to the tips and results in even greater stability and torsional rigidity. Even at full extension, just before the string is released, the Moonstick remains stable and rewards the shooter with 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.
