A VERY Strong K'nex bow an Arrow

This is my first k'nex weapon after a passage down the ipod stand road. This bow uses 19 pieces excluding ammo. This bow can penetrate cardboard! (just penetrate, not go through). The prototype was made from my friend cj81499's knex. He has one too.

Step 1: Parts list.

These are all the parts you will need to gather. They are all in basic form except for the orange ones.

Step 2: The pulley and support system.

This is the wheel and support system step. The wheels or pulleys are the heart of the bow. The support helps it not bend and break.

do the ammo has to be orange
no the orange rods are the EXACTE same as the grey ones, just a different colour
well 20 mins. later i built it and it works amazing and it is the best bow and arrow i've ever built and i also made some mods that made it excelent
i think it looks cool but can it hold ammo by its self
Sorry, 2*

Pure power just doesn't cut it anymore. The fact that it's only 22 parts doesn't help either.
NYPA (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
does the fact that it goes 80 feet help?
DJ Radio NYPA5 years ago
nope.
NYPA (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
then what does count?
DJ Radio NYPA5 years ago
well, something new gets it bonus points.
NYPA (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago

DJ Radio NYPA5 years ago
nope.
NYPA (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
ok. does this get any points?

I actually quite like this! 5* for the fact that there are few bows on this site!

If you attach a yellow semi circle connector to the end of the "arrows" right in the center of the connector, the arrows will spin and be stable in flight, increasing accuracy. This will shave off a little range, though.

you push the rod in from the tip of it. then it will catch it.
