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.

Review: Jackalope Onyx Hunter Take Down Jagdrecurve

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.


NEU: Zircon ILF Wurfarme - Jetzt mit Carbon und Foam

Wie Überzeugendes noch besser werden kann, zeigt JACKALOPE Archery gleich mit drei neuentwickelten ILF Wurfarmen, die es in sich haben.

JACKALOPE Bamboo limbs

Kann man ein hochwertiges Produkt immer noch ein Stück besser machen? JACKALOPE ARCHERY kann! Konsequente Weiterentwicklung und der stetige Wissenstransfer aus dem Bau der Competition Wurfarme von Bloodstone und Onyx münden nun in einer neuen Serie von Wurfarmen für den JACKALOPE Zircon sowie die anderen ILF Griffstücke aus dem Hause JACKALOPE und weiterer Hersteller.

Das "ILF" im Namen der Wurfarme steht schließlich für das International Limb Fitting System - kurz: ILF-System -, welches sie als Steckwurfarme kennzeichnet und universell macht. Denn beim ILF-System werden die Wurfarme nicht am Mittelstück angeschraubt, sondern nur in die entsprechenden Halterungen gesteckt. Die Aufnahmen sind dabei genormt und gewährleisten, dass die Wurfarme mit allen ILF Mittelstücken verwendet werden können.

ILF Wurfarm Zircon BAMBOO

JACKALOPE Zircon Foam limbs

Traditionell und ILF? Bei Jackalope Archery schließen sich diese zwei Punkte sicher nicht gegenseitig aus. Die meisten ihrer Mittelstücke werden auch in einer ILF-Variante angeboten. Gab es bislang nur passende Wurfarme in schwarz oder mattschwarz, kommen nun die neuen Wurfarme mit Bambus-Finish. Die Bamboo Wurfarme bieten dir die bewährte Qualität der bekannten Zircon Wurfarme. Sie sind die perfekten Wurfarme für Bogensporteinsteiger. Das hochwertige Bambus sorgt für gute Stabilität und hervorragende Wurfleistung.

Durch das gelungene Holzfinish passen sie optisch nun aber noch viel besser zu den traditionellen Holzgriffstücken mit ILF-Wurfarmaufnahme von JACKALOPE Archery. Und auch in Kombination mit dem sportlichen Zircon-Mittelstück machen die Wurfarme eine gute Kombination, die mit dem Kontrast von Sportbogen und traditionellem Bogenschießen spielt und mit Konventionen bricht. 

JACKALOPE Zircon Carbon Foam limbs

ILF Wurfarm Zircon FOAM

Du willst deinen ILF Bogen auf das nächste Level bringen? Mit den neuen Foam Wurfarmen gelingt Jackalope Archery genau das. Leichte Materialien und eine hohe Expertise im Wurfarmbau flossen in die Entwicklung eines Wurfarms, der bei gleicher Geschwindigkeit eine verbesserte Auszugskurve aufweist.

Das "Geheimnis" ist der Schaumstoffkern, der für einen weicheren Auszug und eine deutlich bessere Verwindungssteifigkeit sorgt. Damit punkten die neuen Foam Wurfarme in der Kategorie Komfort enorm.

ILF Wurfarm Zircon CARBON FOAM

Erfolg erfordert Präzision und Hingabe. Die Carbon/Foam Wurfarme bieten alles, was des ambitionierten Schützen Herz begehrt: Leichte Foam-Wurfarme werden mit Sichtcarbon zu einem verwindungssteifen und schnellen Wurfarm kombiniert.

Dank dieser Werkstoffverbindung bekommst du einen leichten Wurfarm, der deinen Bogen noch stabiler und beständiger im Schußverhalten macht. Damit gewinnst du mehr Genauigkeit, die dich beim Training und im Wettkampf das entscheidende Stückchen nach vorn bringt.
