FALCON II (Asymmetric laminated Hun recurve bow) from Kassai - Sólyom II
The efforts to break my record of 1998 polished this recurve bow to perfection. The long practice and great shooting speed (1,5 seconds per shot) raised the idea of developing a feather-light bow with long draw. The model born this way made the step over to new dimensions possible in sport: firing nine aimed shots on 90m within 16 seconds. The recurve bow can take a truly extraordinary strain but only by professional use. It needs attention by drawing; the arms of the recurve bow must be loaded even. As owing to its asymmetry the lower arm is shorter, only by bending it, the recurve bow may break during drawing. It is sensitive to overbending, max 33". Thanks to its lightness, exactness and swiftness it represents the high of horse archery at present. As its lower arm is slower, it allows great mobility by shots forward and backward on the horseback, but still keeps its comfortable draw.
This recurve bow has established the absolute rule of asymmetric Hun-type bows in the leading sport.
