JACKALOPE by BODNIK BOWS Smoked Amber - Elegance Redefined!

The Smoked Amber does not carry its name without reason, because smoked oak and Mycarta were used for the handle. Both materials were kept in noble, dark tones - the smoked oak in black-brown, the Mycarta in grey - separated by 2 fine contrasting stripes. The limb is made of bamboo wood and alternatively elegant black finish or beautifully grained olive wood finish. Everything together has been perfectly combined to create an exquisite bow. Its eponym, amber, is one of the oldest jewellery and healing stones in the world. It is an energetic protective stone that boosts confidence and vitality. Its warm fire leads back to your own centre and supports you in energy-sapping situations. The perfect namesake for a perfect traditional bow.

Of course, the convincing characteristics are in no way inferior to the fine appearance. The materials used and the high-quality workmanship result, in a compact bow that trumps with very good draw performance, optimum arrow speeds and an almost complete reduction of vibrations in the grip. Despite a bow length of only 60", it can still be pulled softly and comfortably even with pull-out lengths of over 30".

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.
