SPIDERBOWS Sparrow - 60 inch - 20-50 lbs - Take Down Recurve Bow
With the Sparrow SPIDERBOWS has a true all-rounder in its programme! With a 60 inch bow length and draw weights from 20 to 50 lbs, it is suitable for various areas of use: Its short bow length combined with a low draw weight is ideal for children and young people who want to start with archery. The medium draw weights are also ideal for archers with a short draw. The high draw weights finally make the Sparrow a short but convincing hunting recurve. It benefits from its ingenious limb mount, which fixes the limbs at a special angle that allows draws of up to 30 inches despite the short length of the bow.
But also optically the Sparrow is more than successful. The 15 inch riser is made of the latest generation of Teknowood. This high-strength, modern composite material, which has become indispensable in archery, brings even more torsional stiffness to the bow and gives the riser the natural and pleasant feel of wood. The grip area is filigree and thus optimally suited for small hands.
The sandwich construction of the limbs consists of a bamboo core with high-quality fibreglass on top. This construction and the special SPIDERBOWS limb geometry result in limbs with very good shooting characteristics and high torsional stiffness. In the carbon versions, an additional layer of carbon is embedded, which makes the limbs even more torsionally stiff and faster.

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.
