JACKALOPE - Obsidian - 54" - 20-45 lbs - Horse Bow - Model 2021
A classic timeless design, combined with the highest quality materials, give the JACKALOPE Obsidian horse bow its elegant appearance and convincing performance. With this special bow, you hold a true piece of jewellery in your hand.
The JACKALOPE Obsidian is a modern horse bow that reinterprets tradition. For example, its handle and the ends of the limbs are made of Dymondwood, an innovative material in which several layers of wood have been processed into a highly stable compound, which is what makes the unique black-grey look possible in the first place. The handle is very slim and suitable for both right-handed and left-handed shooters. However, the limbs are perhaps the most striking feature of the whole bow, because their shape is much stronger and more massive than other horse or recurve bows and yet they look very filigree and elegant. They give the bow something very special. The limbs themselves are made of Dymondwood and black glass.
As innovative as the bows are, so extraordinary is the name! Obsidian is a gemstone with very special and important characteristics for shooters. Thus this elegant, black stone made of lava glass not only protects against negative energies but also helps to realize one's own goals. It promotes perception and strengthens inner peace and patience. A thoroughly successful choice of name for all these flawless JACKALOPE bows.
Horse bows - agile and fast
The horse bow was originally developed in Asia. The best-known peoples are the Huns and Mongols, who have used this archetype of bow manufactured over centuries. The horse bows were, as the name suggests, designed and perfected for shooting from horses. When riding, the space on the horse is limited and the mounted warrior had to remain agile in order to survive or to hunt successfully. In contrast to the typical Western European bows, such as the English longbow, horse bows do not consist of a single piece but are usually composed of several parts. Thus wood was used, which was glued and reinforced with horn, strings and bones to build a strongly reflex bow, which is short enough to shoot from the horse and which could guarantee long pull-outs and fast arrow speeds.
This almost perfect bow spread worldwide in the course of history and other peoples also developed their horse bows, which did not differ significantly in their basic function, but each represented its own variants. In Europe, it is above all the Magyars (Hungarians) who enjoy an excellent reputation as riders, archers and bowmakers and who shaped the horse bow and the shooting of horses.
