MANDARIN DUCK Grey Goose - 60" - 30-60 lbs - Recurve bow
The Grey Goose recurve bow, whose name was inspired by the noble plumage of the grey goose, comes in elegant silver-grey. Designed as a classic recurve bow with a 15-inch riser and black limbs, it offers everything you would expect from a traditional bow: A handy bow length of 60 inches, a wide range of draw weights and proven as well as innovative materials.
The riser is made of Teknowood - a highly stable compound of several layers of wood and epoxy resin - which absorbs vibrations and allows for faster, smoother shooting. The limbs, on the other hand, consist of a core of maple wood and high-quality black fibreglass laminates.

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.
