An exciting beginner! - The compound bow CORE Zeal.
CORE´s new compound bow Zeal has set out to be the perfect starter bow. It goes without saying that every shooter has to decide for himself which bow is perfect for him, but at first glance, Zeal has succeeded in this noble ambition. With a length of 38.75" (approx. 98cm) - measured from axis to axis - and a relatively large stand height of 7.75", the bow can be easily pulled out and forgives one or two (beginner) mistakes in the shooting process. Thanks to the relatively large distance between the cams, the angle formed at the extended string is large enough to shoot the bow with release as well as safely with bare fingers.
With a weight of only 1700g and a let-off of 70%, e.g. the reduction of the draw weight to be held at the point of the maximum draw, the Zeal makes it easy for every beginner to hold the extended bow and concentrate on the target.
Even with the adjustment options, the bow makes it easy for the shooter. The draw weight can be set between 30 and 45 lbs and the draw length between 23 and 30" without a bow press. The draw weight simply has to be adjusted using the limbs screws, which can be unscrewed counter-clockwise by up to 7 revolutions.
Equipped with all mounting options for accessories and including D-Loop and Peep Sight, the bow is ideally equipped to allow entry into the world of compound bows.
Only available as right-hand model.

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.

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.
