Riser | JACKALOPE - Obsidian - ILF - Model 2022 - 17-21 inch
The riser of the JACKALOPE Obsidian range is a sophisticated combination of naturally grown Amazaque wood and ultra-modern Teknowood. The African Amazaque, with its distinct and very decorative grain, gives the riser a natural, warm appearance. In contrast, the innovative Teknowood, in which several layers of wood are combined with epoxy resin to form a highly stable material. The different wood layers allow a completely new colour design of the handle and provide an absolutely unique look in noble grey tones.
ILF - Full flexibility with unimagined precision!
JACKALOPE has paid special attention to the Obsidian riser for the limb mountings. While traditional wooden riser usually only have the option of using special screw-in limbs, things are different here: the Obsidian riser is equipped with the ILF plug-in system. ILF stands for the "International Limb Fitting" system, which is a standardised fitting system where the limbs are not screwed to the riser, but simply plugged in. From model year 2021, the Obsidian riser has a unique mounting block! Made of full metal (aluminium), it is not only extremely stable and precise, but also enables a precise and stable ILF mount on a wooden riser, which is in no way inferior to that on a metal riser.
The tiller is easy to adjust via the tiller screw, which, unlike other ILF mounts, is fitted with an additional ring that fixes the throwing arm so that it has no play when adjusting in an untensioned state. Once the position of the optimum tillers has been found, this setting is fixed with the help of the hexagon socket screw in the tillerscrew. The lateral adjustment of the limbs is now also much more precise and secure, as the lateral grub screws are no longer installed in the wood of the riser, but in the receiver. This means that overtightened screws in the wood or risers that have cracked at this point are a thing of the past.
If you are looking for an ILF mount that offers the stability of a metal riser, then the ILF Top mount from JACKALOPE is certainly the ideal solution!

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.
