Description
Perfection down to the last detail - The Obsidian Take Down Bow from JACKALOPE

The JACKALOPE Obsidian Take Down is handmade in the finest European craftsmanship from high-quality and innovative materials. The handle, for example, is made of two completely different types of wood, giving it its unmistakable character. The front part, facing away from the shooter, is made of black-grey Teknowood, an ultra-modern material made of several layers of wood. In contrast, the rear part facing the shooter is made of beautiful, sturdy Amazoque, a tropical wood that is particularly appealing for its warm colours. The limbs are made of Spiderwood, specially selected for bow making, which is covered with black glass. All this together makes the JACKALOPE Take Down bows fast, forgiving and very quiet.

Another detail, perhaps not so obvious in its perfection, are the hand-cut transitions from the handle to the limbs. The handle merges seamlessly into the limbs and makes forget that this is a three-piece bow. Elegant design can also be seen in inconspicuous details.

As innovative as the bows are, so extraordinary is the name! The Obsidian is a gemstone with very special and not unimportant characteristics for shooters. Thus this elegant, black stone made of lava glass not only protects against negative energies but also helps to realize one's own goals. It promotes perception and strengthens inner peace and patience. A quite
successful choice of name for the flawless JACKALOPE Obsidian bows.

SPEED - Carbon for even more speed

In the speed versions the JACKALOPE obsidian is now even faster! An additional layer of carbon improves the already good-natured characteristics of the bow. It makes the bow more forgiving and provides a narrower and more accurate hit pattern when shooting. But how does it achieve this? Quite simple: Due to the carbon inlay, the limbs are not only lighter and more distorsion-resistant, but also about 10fps faster.

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.
