SPIDERBOWS Blizzard Classic - 62-68 inch - 20-50 lbs - Take Down Recurve Bow
A modern bow with elegant shapes that is SPIDERBOWS Blizzard Classic! A three-piece recurve bow that manages to find the perfect balance between filigree shape and optimal weight.
The riser is made from natural woods in the tradition of classical bow making. The dark, elegant wood of the smoked oak dominates the look and forms the two outer layers of the riser. The warm, light Amazoqueholz separates them and is itself bordered by two only 2mm thick Micarta strips. The micarta not only complements the exterior, but also increases the weight and provides optimal stiffening of the riser. A combination that increases comfort when shooting and guarantees a convincing tactile experience.
The sandwich construction of the limbs has a core made of bamboo wood, on top of which lies high-quality, black glass laminate. This construction and the special, SPIDERBOWS own limb geometry finally provide limbs with very good shooting characteristics.
In the carbon versions, SPIDERBOWS adds an embedded layer of carbon laminate to the limbs. This special limb construction has a number of advantages: In addition to maximum torsional stiffness, it guarantees extremely forgiving shooting behaviour and very high speeds.

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.
