KAISER Portchester - 68 inch - 25-60 lbs - Longbow
This 68 inch reflex limb longbow is named after the medieval Portchester Castle in England. The bow is made from laminated exotic woods, with the riser featuring three complimentary tones in Amazaque and Bubinga woods. These woods are known for their durability and attractive grain and give the riser its appealing and distinctive look. Lighter grain dividing wood laminations show the colours at their best. The balanced bow design offers exceptional shot stability, and 68 inch length provides a smooth draw, a forgiving shot and excellent overall performance. Clear backed limbs allow for the distinctive Zebrano wood grain of the limbs to show through for a quality, natural wood look, but with the benefits of fibreglass performance. The Portchester can be used with the best modern string materials due to reinforced limb tips.

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.
