JACKALOPE Tourmaline - Power and Dynamics in One Bow
Do you love modern bows with a traditional design and want more colour for the handle? Then the JACKALOPE Tourmaline is exactly what you are looking for! A one-piece recurve bow whose limbs in light bamboo, the handle in warm brown and earth tones that reach into silver-grey and emerald-green perfectly complement. Each bow is unique and underlines the personal individuality of each shooter.
The handle of the JACKALOPE Tourmaline is made of naturally grown Amazaque wood and ultra-modern Teknowood, giving it its unmistakable character. The African Amazaque, with its distinct and very decorative grain, gives the handle a natural, warm appearance. In contrast to this is the innovative Teknowood, in which several layers of wood are combined with epoxy resin to form a highly stable material, which minimises hand shocks and promises high stability.
With the 2021 model year, the grip area has been revised and now offers even more comfort. The area of the handball is slightly higher and the handle as a whole is slightly less contoured and thus lies much better in the hand. The shelf has also been redesigned and is now much more rounded and slopes more towards the front. This means that it offers the arrow less contact surface and yet optimal guidance when firing.
The limbs, on the other hand, are made of bamboo and clear glass, whose light wood tones represent a beautiful complement to the handle. All this together makes the JACKALOPE recurve bow fast, forgiving and very quiet.
SPEED - Carbon for even more speed
In the speed versions, the JACKALOPE Tourmaline 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 distortion-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.
