JACKALOPE Archery

Jackalope Archery

Jackalope - So far, most of us have most likely only associated this name with the mythical creature from the USA, which appeared in the shape of a rabbit-buck with conspicuous antlers.

But in 2016 there was an event that made many archers on this planet remember the name Jackalope for a very long time and anchor it in their passion for archery.

Jackalope Limb System - Welcome to the future

With the Jackalope Limb System, or JLS for short, Jackalope introduces a promising system for take-down bows to the market.

Jackalope Archery is ending the year with a bang: The introduction of the Jackalope Limb System, or JLS, which stands for a new standardized take down system. All JLS risers can be combined with the JLS limbs. Future models will also be compatible.

There are currently four recurve limbs to choose from: a high-performance bamboo core, either laminated with black or clear glass, and with an optional carbon inlay for the JLS Speedvariant. All archer-facing parts of the JLS limbs are covered with the Jackalope BLACK POWER glass, which is also used in our tournament bows from the Bloodstone and Onyx series. The draw weight starts at a beginner-friendly 20lbs. The JLS limbs are currently offered with 24 different risers: With the Flint and Crystal series, Jackalope lets you choose between three stunningly beautiful natural tones or five distinctly attractive and contrasting colors. The risers are available in three different lengths (17"|19"|21"). his means that you can choose from three different bow lengths: 60"|62"|64". Of course, JACKALOPE did not forget about left-handed archers either. The 96 possible combinations are not all, however, as hybrid limbs are already being developed. In addition, more limb lengths, new riser shapes and colors, different woods and much more is on the way... In short: Jackalope Archery has great plans for the 2020s!

We recommend the Jackalope Archery whisper string for all JLS bows. With this string your bow will embody the essence of Jackalope in its entirety: Excellent shot performance and incredible smoothness throughout the shot process.

And of course, all JLS components come with a 30-year warranty, just like you have come to expect from Jackalope Archery.

JACKALOPE Onyx - breathtakingly beautiful precision

With the Onyx, the Jackalope series now has a new, extraordinary member: A distinct competition bow with interesting contrasts and impressive characteristics. When developing the Onyx, optimal performance in competitions was the name of the game.

JACKALOPE Onyx Longbow
JACKALOPE Onyx Hybrid Bow

Its inimitable precision, shock-absorption and exceptional arrow speed is achieved by the combination of natural woods and high-tech materials like bamboo, palisander, carbon and teknowood, which also is very rich of contrasts optically.

The riser is made of naturally-grown hard palisander and shock-absorbing teknowood, which are then bordered by high-quality bamboo that goes all the way up to the tips. Furthermore, unilateral carbon and powerglass laminate allow for maximum performance and highest arrow speeds of up to 230fps. It goes without saying that the Onyx is suited for fast-flight strings. Visually, the black and white teknowood details (based on the wide range of colours of the chalcedon, a conspecies of the onyx) lend the bow a fresh appearance, while the decorative palisander grain remains its natural look.

The eponymous protection- and powerstone onyx is said to help build up emotional and physical strength. The onyx protects you from negativity and fear according to an ancient Japanese wise saying: "Fear does only go as deep as our spirit allows".

Since antiquity, the onyx is said to strengthen the intuition as well as the senses and who does not want one´s demeanor to be more focussed and confident in tournaments or on the parcours? Conventions assure that whoever believed in one´s onyx, achieved everything one wanted to achieve. There could not possibly be a better eponym for this breathtaking bow.

Whether you opt for an IFAA competition-compliant, 68" long- or 64" hybrid bow or maybe rather for the 62" one piece recurve bow between 30 and 50 lbs - the Onyx is convincing in every version. On top of that, it is also available as a 15-23" riser and thereby you can combine it with your favourite ILF limbs. Of course you also have access to the 30 years warranty for Jackalope products after registering your Onyx.

NEW: Zircon ILF Limbs – Now with carbon and Foam

JACKALOPE Archery shows how already impressive products can become evenbetter with three newly developed ILF limbs that really pack a punch.

JACKALOPE Bamboo limbs

Can you make a high-quality product even better? JACKALOPE ARCHERY certainly can! Consistent further development and the transfer of knowledge from the Bloodstone and Onyx bows now result in a new series of limbs for the JACKALOPE Zircon as well as the other ILFgrips from JACKALOPE as well as other manufacturers.

The "ILF" in the name of the limbs is short for International Limb Fitting System, which characterizes them as plug-in limbs and makes them universal. With the ILF system, the limbsare not screwed onto the riser, but are simply inserted into the mounts, which are standardizedand ensure that the limbs can be used with all ILF risers.


ILF Limb Zircon BAMBOO

JACKALOPE Zircon Foam limbs

Traditional and ILF? At JACKALOPE Archery, you can have both in one bow as most of the risers are also offered as an ILF model. While there were previously only matching limbs in black or matte black, now we also have limbs with a bamboo finish. These Bamboo limbs offer you the high quality of the well-known Zircon limbs. They are the perfect limbs for archery beginners. The high-quality bamboo provides good stability and excellent shot performance at the same time.

Due to the attractive wood finish, they now match the traditional wooden grips with ILF limb mounts from JACKALOPE Archery even more. Also, when combined with the sporty Zircon riser, the limbs make for a neat contrast of modern sports bows and traditional archery.


JACKALOPE Zircon Carbon Foam limbs

ILF Limb Zircon FOAM

You want to take your ILF bow to the next level? Have a look at our new Foam limbs. Lightweight materials and a high level of expertise in limb construction went into the development of a limb that has an improved draw curve while maintaining the same speed.

The "secret" is the foam core, which makes for a smoother draw and significantly higher stiffness. As a result, the new Foam limbs perform incredibly well when it comes to comfort.

ILF Limb Zircon CARBON FOAM

Success requires precision and dedication. The Carbon/Foam limbs offer everything an ambitious shooter's heart could want: Lightweight Foam limbs are combined with carbon to create a stiff and fast limb.

Thanks to the combination of these materials, you get a lightweight limb, which makes your bow even more stable and consistent when shooting, also increasing the accuracy. This will give you a decisive edge in training and competitions.
