Riser | ANTUR Artus Opal
Many myths entwine themselves around the stone to which the riser Artus Opal owes its name. Opal means precious stone, which is why many tried their luck in search of it.
The powerful grip, which is made of a robust ebony replica and brown actionwood with a bulbous pattern, ensures optimum firing stability. The fitting groove in the riser guarantees on the one hand the perfect alignment of the limb and on the other hand the longevity of the whole bow. Thanks to the 3-point fixation it is absolutely twist-proof. Due to the most precise manufacturing technology, the Artus risers and Artus limb fit together perfectly and can be combined with each other as desired.
Available as right- or left-hand model.
Material: Ebony Replica, Actionwood

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.
