[SPECIAL] Black Raven - 58" - 25-60 lbs - Take Down Recurve Bow
The Black Raven is a little specialty! As three-part recurve bow it comes with a length of 58" and is still quite classic. Its handle and the colour in complete black and is rather unusual. The Black Raven recurve bow also refutes the myth that metal handle is heavy at the same time, because 675g for a metal handle and 1000g for the whole bow is more than good and anything but heavy.
And as the small handle of the Black Raven, it has visor, stabilizer and button socket, like a larger handle. With possible draw weights between 25 and 60 lbs (in 5 lbs steps) and limbs made of strong maple wood and black fibreglass, the bow is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced players.
Only available as the right-hand model.

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.
