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.
At this point, the horned rabbit-buck not only is an American
mythical creature, but rather the characteristic image of a winning streak that has only

How it started
The beginning of Jackalope Archery was bilious green and
strikingly salient. The one piece recurve bow Malachite, which is named after a
gemstone, paved the way for a winning streak that is without equals.
The bow unites quality and performance and can thereby even
compete with high-end bows. On top of that, such quality and performance have never been seen before in this price
range. If nothing else, independent archery blogs and magazines as well as
our comparisons and tests will confirm this.
As a reaction to the throughout positive feedback on the
Malachite recurve bow, many more models followed soon that not only look like
them, but were also given the name of several special gemstones.

Archery has been achieved with a decisive and impressive cooperation. Shared
ambitions and values have united what was supposed to be united. A friendly
cooperation between Jackalope Archery and Bodnik Bows, which today still

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.

With the new Moonstone and Malachite ILF risers of 2019,
Jackalope extends its comprehensive product range by two modern ILF risers with
traditional looks. Innovative dymond wood, which is a very durable compound of
several layers of wood and epoxy, absorbes vibration optimally and therefore
allows for shots without handshock. Furthermore, thanks to the ILF system, you can
pick from any other of your favourite ILF limbs, so in this case you have the
agony of choice.
Simple beauty or fresh green?
You like to keep it simple and want to shine with classical
elegance at the parcours? Then the new Moonstone ILF Take Down is the right
choice for you. Its 50 Shades of Grey make the dymond wood grain shine through
in a fascinating way. Its eponym moonstone helps to get rid of emotional
tensions, relieve yourself from fear and enhances your intuition and determination - it
is the lucky stone of June.
Or maybe a bit more colour? Then get yourself the new Malachite
riser, whose intensive tones of green are a carbon copy of the malachite
gemstone as opposed to the model of last year with two colours. The 2019
malachite ILF riser namely shines in just one intense, fresh green this year.
Due to this exciting look, it distinguishes itself noticably from other
traditional bows and curious looks from fellow archers will certainly be a sure thing.
Limb diversity is the name of the game
The ILF system of the new risers lets you have the agony of
choice when choosing your favourite limbs. Of course, Jackalope also offers
fitting ILF limbs, which are made of black fiberglass as the laminate as well as
a core of high-quality acorn- and makore wood and offer high stability,
exceptional performance and a broad selection from bow lengths and draw weights.
With the Jackalope limbs, you can shoot both models with a draw weight of up to
46 lbs and the new Jackalope Hunter limbs that just consist of acorn and
fiberglass, with a draw weight of even up to 60 lbs. The standardized system,
however, does of course allow for unlimited use of any other ILF limbs of
different manufacturers - as said, you have the agony of choice!
You can get both ILF models for an introductory price of €249.99
instead of €299.98 and separate risers for €199.99.

Review: Jackalope Onyx Hunter Take Down Recurve Hunting Bow
COMPACT AND SPEEDY FOR TOURNAMENTS
The Onyx Hunter from Jackalope Archery is a traditional bow with phenomenal speed forexperienced competition shooters. The 15" riser made of heavy rosewood and teknowood fitsinto your hands amazingly well. Together with the super-fast bamboo-carbon limbs it makesfor a compact 58" bow ranging from 30 to 50lbs.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
