SPIDERBOWS Cloud - 64" - 20-50 lbs - Hybrid bow
In addition to the classic recurve and long bows, hybrid bows also have a long tradition at SPIDERBOWS. In their development, the focus has always been on outstanding performance and pleasant shooting behaviour. An appealing design, paired with the latest throwing arm technology and the finest craftsmanship, characterise SPIDERBOWS Hybrid Bow Cloud.
With a length of 64 inches, the Cloud is a modern, one-piece hybrid bow that manages to find the perfect balance between harmonious shape and optimal performance with its elegant exterior. The handle is made of the latest generation Teknowood. This high-strength, modern composite material, which has become indispensable in archery, brings even more torsional stiffness to the bow and gives it the natural and pleasant feel of wood. The look is determined by the two crescent-shaped elements, which are separated by a central strip of coloured Teknowood. The middle strip is framed by two micarta strips, only 2mm thick, which increase the weight and provide optimal stiffening of the riser. A combination that increases comfort when shooting and guarantees a convincing haptic experience.
Of course, it is not only the look that impresses, but also the finesse of the hybrid bow. No wonder, as this type of bow combines the best of two worlds: At first glance it looks like a longbow, but at 64 inches it is a little too short to be a "real" longbow. However, it makes up for the lack of size with the typical feature of a recurve bow, the clearly visible reflex-deflex shape in the limbs, and thus cleverly combines the characteristics of a longbow and a recurve bow. The result is a compact bow with a smooth draw, high arrow speeds and an almost complete reduction of vibrations in the grip. As is usual with a traditional longbow, the string of the hybrid bow does not touch the limbs, but only the tips.
The sandwich construction of the limbs adjoining the grip area has a core of bamboo wood, on top of which lies high-quality black glass laminate. This construction and SPIDERBOWS' own special limb geometry result in limbs with very good shooting characteristics.
In the carbon versions, SPIDERBOWS supplements the bamboo core with a layer of carbon laminate only 1.2 mm thick. This special limb construction has a lot 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.
