At home in nature! - The JACKALOPE Obsidian Hunter - Recurve hunting bow

If nature is your second home and the archery parcours is one of your favourite areas to be at, you will have a lot of joy with the recurve hunting bows of the JACKALOPE Hunter series, which are the perfect companions for adventures in the forest as well as on heathers. At a length of 58 inches, the bows are compact and powerful enough to roam around the forest quickly.

The JACKALOPE Obsidian Take Down is made with the finest European craftsmanship from high-quality and innovative materials. The 15 inch long riser for example consists of two completely different types of wood, which lends it its unique character. The part of the bow that is facing away from the archer in the front consists of black-grey teknowood, which is a highly-modern material that consists of multiple layers of wood. The part of the riser that is facing towards the archer is made of beautiful, durable amazaque wood, giving it a fantastic contrast. Amazaque is a tropical wood that is particularly nice-looking because of its warm colours. The limbs are made of spiderwood, which was selected for bow making, and covered with black glass. All of that makes the JACKALOPE Take Down bows quick, forgiving and reduces the hand shock when shooting.

Another, maybe not all that obvious detail due to the bow´s overall perfection, are the hand-ground transitions of the riser to the limbs. The riser flows completely seamlessly into the limbs and makes you forget that this is a bow consisting of three pieces. This goes to show that classy design also shows itself in not so obvious details.

As innovative the bows are, as unique the name is! The obsidian is a gem stone with very special properties that are pretty important for archers. This black stone not only protects you from negative energy but also helps you accomplish your personal goals. It enhances the perception as well as the ease of mind and patience. Certainly a good choice of name for the flawless JACKALOPE Obsidian bows.

SPEED - Carbon for even more speed

In the speed version, the JACKALOPE Obsidian now is even faster! An additional layer of carbon improves the already good-natured characteristics of the bow. It also makes it more forgiving and provides tighter and more accurate groupings when shooting. But how does the bow achieve this? Quite simple: Due to the carbon inlay, the limbs are not only lighter and more distortion-resistant but also about 10fps faster.

Right or left-hand?


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.
