    Nice bow, it looks powerful, im just worried about the PVC tension, i dont want it to shatter or snap if i make it. What did you use for the trigger?

    In my experience PVC pipe doesn't shatter even when bent to extreme amounts, It just kinks and doesn't work as a bow anymore. I have a 3/4 in PVC crossbow that shoots at 190-250 fps, 400+ shots on it, and no problems with the PVC pipe so far.

    How big is it

    This is my second crossbow design and i was gone make another/beater one but then my parents desided to move and now i can't make any thing any more...

    What kind of range does this have? Id worry about the pvc breaking upon bolt release

    how much tension you think you get with the pvc? Never thought it could be used for tension.
