    it is the bow but if you add lots of yellow connectors to the bow arms it wont break

    I added yellow connectors on the bow arm to make it More powerful

    a compound bow is a bow that uses wheels and pulleys to get more power:effort ratio, this means it can be easier to pull but you get more power than an equivalent normal bow

    A compound bow is something you should look up on wikipedia.

    a piece in it broke and cut my hand so I give it a 0.5


    when i built it it kept on breaking so i fixed it up with some orange connectors

    Amazing build! I want to thank you for the inspiration this project gave me to build my own knex bow. I changed a few things on my version to add weight and make it stronger. 5*

    cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!im sooo makin 1 of these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     if you used a rubber band its not a compound bow its technically a slingshot

    I made this and it was not very good. the bow was all was breaking
