Modern and Traditional - The JACKALOPE Tourmaline Longbow

Do you love modern bows with a traditional design and want more colour for the handle? Then perhaps the JACKALOPE Tourmaline is exactly what you are looking for! A longbow which in its form and the most important characteristics are in no way inferior to the classic longbows, but in its design brings modern design to the oldest of all types of bows. The grip area, for example, is made of naturally grown Amazaque wood and ultra-modern Teknowood, giving it its unmistakable character. The African Amazaque, with its clearly pronounced and very decorative grain, gives the handle a natural, warm optics. In contrast, 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. The limbs are strongly reflex-deflex shaped to optimize the performance and make the bow more forgiving and consist of bamboo and clear glass, whose light wood tones represent a beautiful complement to the handle. The finest European handcrafted materials work together to ensure optimum speeds, very good throwing performance and a buttery-soft pull-out. Important notice: The JACKALOPE longbows are IFAA compliant and therefore suitable for competitions!

Inimitably colourful like his name sponsor! The Tourmaline's handle combines a coordinated play of colours of warm brown and earth tones with accents of silver grey and emerald green. Each bow is unique and underlines the personal individuality of each shooter. The eponym Tourmaline stands for smoothing the way to your goal, it not only has an uplifting and invigorating effect but also has a positive effect on the spiritual level.

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.
