We will show you how to build an extremely simple and durable fiberglass bow that can be scaled to any strength. Although it definitely isnt for target shooting it is well worth the $5. Warning this is dangerous and should not be used for any illicit activity. We claim no responsibility for injury or damage caused by this.

Step 1: Assemble and Prepare Your Materials

For this instructable you will need:
-Several fiberglass reflector poles(people put them at the edge of their lawns)
-400 lb test twine (army navy stores have it)
-hot glue gun
-and arrows, or 1/4" wooden dowels to make arrows from

First you have to remove the reflectors from the fiber glass rods, if they are those red plastic ones simply smash them on the ground. remove any plastic remnants till you have only the bare rod left.
why is this under nerf? this isn't a nerf thing
if i didn't have a twine what string can i use
you could use an old fishing rod for the fiberglass
not really a fishing rod is tappered and hollow the can't be either<br />
What diameter rods did you use? Also, are these hollow rods or solid?
were do u buy the poles
wat exactly is the fibre glasss pole u used?
its from a fiberglass reflector pole <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.fiberglassinnovations.com/">look here</a> look in the pic, its the one with the red reflector on it. Srry i cant describe it better<br/>
This would make a nice weekend project for Scouts. I would recommend you use some of your nylon string to create a grip at the center of the bow. Just use a series of half-hitches until the grip is wide enough and then secure the loose end with your hot glue. You can also use a bit of duct tape on your quarter-inch dowel to make the fletching - the feathers - for the arrows. Squeeze three pieces of the duct tape equidistance around the end so it contacts the dowel and the sticky side of each piece of the tape and then trim the tape to the right shape.
thats a great idea. thanks
Neat! Awesome job, and I will be careful. ;-)
