Bow with String
Set nocking point
The nocking point is a small brass ring, which we attach to the string. This marks the correct position of the arrow on the string and helps to quickly find this optimal point all over again. The arrow is usually docked under the nocking point. The nocking point itself is of course included in this service and does not have to be ordered separately.
We assemble for you all ordered attachments (visor, arrow rest, stabilizer, peep sight, string loop, possibly nocking point) and prepare the assembly so that after receipt of the goods you need only a few handles to make the bow ready for firing.
Completely pre-assembled (this service will be available shortly)
We assemble for you all ordered attachments (visor, arrow rest, stabilizer, peep sight, string loop, possibly nocking point) and attach them to the bow so that you have the bow immediately after receipt of the goods ready to shoot.
120 - 135 cm Height: 58"
135 - 150 cm Height: 62"
150 - 160 cm Height: 64"
161 - 167 cm Height: 66"
168 - 175 cm Height: 68"
From 176 cm Height: 70"
The basic rule is: It is better to choose a slightly longer bow, as this mistake in the shooting technique is more forgiving.
Another possibility is the selection according to the personal draw length.
Simple method: Extend both arms to the side - Divide total span in cm by 2.5 = draw length in cm. If you need the inch value - divide by 2.54 again.
48 - 53 cm: 58"
53 - 58 cm: 62"
58 - 63 cm: 64"
63 - 68 cm: 66"
68 - 73 cm: 68"
Ab 73 cm: 70"
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.
