JACKALOPE Zircon - Explorer - 60-64 inch - 22-60 lbs - ILF - Take Down Recurve Bow
The Zircon EXPLORER riser is the next level riser from Jackalope Archery. The slightly shorter and lighter riser, when combined with the C20 or C55 ILF limbs, makes a great hunting recurve with a perfect balance of shooting comfort and excellent throwing performance best suited for the course.
Made from a CNC-machined aluminium-magnesium alloy, the 19 inch riser features much softer, more curved lines than the other Zircon models. The design of the riser is deliberately kept slim to enable an optimal, i.e. neutral weight distribution and to achieve an ideal balance at the pivot point with a perfect pressure point when shooting. The slim shape is also the result of a well-balanced geometry that allows fast shots and is absolutely forgiving. By the way, the slim grip made of Dymondwood also fits perfectly in smaller hands. Finally, the material of the riser guarantees high torsional stiffness and does not allow any vibrations or hand shock.
Equipped with sockets for stabilisers, button, arrow rest and sight, the Zircon Explorer riser is already technically well equipped, but also has a removable aluminium shelf, fixable tillerscrews and lateral adjustability of the limb mountings.

ILF-System - Innovative and flexible
The limbs themselves are attached to the riser using the International Limb Fitting System (ILF). They are simply inserted into the worm arm holders on the riser and not screwed. This innovative, standardised system allows the use of limb fittings from different manufacturers and does not tie the shooter to one manufacturer or the manufacturer of the riser. This means that the limbs can be easily and quickly fitted or exchanged for other draw weights or models.

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.
