JACKALOPE Malachite Hybrid - The modern Longbow
Protectors love nature, so the JACKALOPE Malachite Arches will always be faithful companions on your way through forests and meadows. The wonderful combination of green-black Dymondwood in the handle area and fine layers of light maple and black glass on the limbs, extending over the entire bow, form a perfect unity. Above all, the green-black colouring of the handle, which looks like the mineral malachite to be confused with, provides for the exciting appearance, which clearly differs from traditional bows.
Naturally, it is not only the optics that impress; but also the finesse of the hybrid bow that quickly convinces. No wonder, as this type of bow combines the best of both worlds: At first glance, it looks like a longbow, but at 62" it is a bit too short to be a "real" longbow. However, the missing size catches with the typical feature of a recurve bow, the clearly visible Reflex-Deflex-Form in the limbs, again and thus skillfully addresses the characteristics of a long and a recurve bow together. The result is a compact bow with a soft extension, high arrow speeds and an almost complete reduction of vibrations in the grip. As is usual with a traditional longbow, the string of the hybrid bow does not touch the limbs but only the tips.
New in 2021 - The Moonstone Carbon
The latest edition of the highly popular Moonstone now brings a carbon inlay inside the limb into play. The entire section of the recurves up to the tips is reinforced with a carbon layer. This results in even higher stability and torsional stiffness. Even in full draw, just in the moment before the release of the string, the Moonstone remains stable and rewards the shooter with an even better shooting performance.

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.
