The best of both worlds! - The JACKALOPE Obsidian Hybrid Bow.
A classic timeless design, combined with the highest quality materials. This is what gives the JACKALOPE Obsidian Hybrid Bow its elegance and convincing performance. The appealing handle is made of black-grey Teknowood, which is a highly stable combination of several layers of wood that gives the bow its unique look. The limbs are made of Bamboo, specially selected for bow making, which is covered with black glass. Manufactured in finest European handicraft from high-quality and innovative materials, you hold a true piece of jewellery in your hand!
So innovative the bows, so extraordinary the name! The Obsidian is a gemstone with very special and for shooters not unimportant characteristics. So this elegant, black stone made of lava glass not only protects against negative energies but also helps to realize your own goals. It promotes perception and strengthens inner peace and patience. A thoroughly successful choice of name for these flawless JACKALOPE bows.
Of course, it is not only the appearance and the name that captivate but also the finesse of this type of bow - the hybrid bow - quickly convince! No wonder, since it combines the best of both worlds: At first glance, it appears to be a traditional longbow, where, for example, the string only touches the tips but not the limbs, but at 64" it is a bit too short to be a "real" longbow. However, the missing size catches with the typical feature of a recurve bow, the clearly visible Reflex-Deflex-Form in the limbs, again and thus skillfully addresses the characteristics of a long and a recurve bow together. The result is a compact bow with a soft extension, high arrow speeds and an almost complete reduction of vibrations in the grip.
SPEED - Carbon for even more speed
In the speed versions, the JACKALOPE obsidian is now even faster! An additional layer of carbon improves the already good-natured characteristics of the bow. It makes the bow more forgiving and provides a narrower more accurate hit pattern when shooting. But how does it achieve this? Quite simple: By the carbon inlay, the limbs are not only lighter and more distorsion-resistant but also 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.
