SPIDERBOWS Raven - 62"-68" - 20-50lbs - Take Down Recurve bow
With the new Raven bow series, SPIDERBOWS presents an elegant take-down recurve bow based on the geometry of the top line Condor.
The riser is made of Teknowood, a modern material that has become indispensable in archery. The uniform and high-strength composite material brings many advantages to bow making and combines them with the natural, pleasant feel of wood.
The individual colour design is one of the advantages of the innovative Teknowood, which would not be possible with classic wood. Teknowood allows for an almost infinite number of possibilities. The colouring of the Raven was specially developed by SPIDERBOWS. This makes the Raven absolutely unique in the world of archery. The result is an elegant play of colours consisting of dominant, noble black with discreet decorative stripes in orange, green, blue or red, which give the bow a timeless yet modern and unusual appearance.
Provided with a pleasant, ergonomic grip, it nestles perfectly in the hand and gives a great feeling when shooting.
The limbs are made of bamboo wood at the core and are covered with special, high-strength glass that shines in satin black. This special glass is characterised by high torsional stiffness and makes the Raven not only fast, but also forgiving and outstandingly accurate.

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.
