Step 6: Arrow Rest
I had a lot of fun making this bow as this is first. Thanks to pucksurfer as he gave me the idea to make a step by step and share with everyone this wonderful bow. I will have more on shooting it later as this one is a little different than my other one. Also after you have made the bow leave it overnight strung. This will give it it's natural bow and make it easier to string. After that one night of leaving it strung do not leave it that way. Thanks for reading and have a blessed day and good luck!
Step 7: After 2 Weeks!
light, and easy to carry only about 5 lb.
Quiet, this is a crazy quiet bow, I don't know if it's the pvc that dampens the sound or what but it is really quiet.
Accurate, out to about 50 yds. Past that you can still hit but get arrow drift.
Unstringable, (if that's a word??) but can be unstrung to save power!
Heavy draw (could go either way depends on the archer)
Cheap to make only $12
Can shoot 180 fps with 500 grain arrows.
Weather proof because of the plastic pvc.
BIG, really tall... That's all i got to say about that.
Draw weight could be too heavy
On small game over penertration almost always happens... Even with rubber blunts.
Not a toy
Makes for storing it a hassle because like I said it's to big
All in all I can't be more than happy with this bow. To be made out of pvc it is a really powerful weapon. I have killed 5 rabbits over the course of the two weeks (farmer request) and I used the rubber blunts and g5 sgh. The g5 penetrated all the way through 3 rabbits. Then I tried the rubber blunts and they too penetrated all the way through. I was shooting from a distance of about 15 feet for all of them and penetration through the animal happened with all broadhead,amy suggestions?? I hunt for food and the farmer allows me to keep the rabbits... For all u hunter haters lol, but anyways a really powerful weapon and pretty accurate. I would definitely love to try this on larger game but that isn't till next time. Please ask any questions, I will be happy to answer them, and don't mind my grammar. And as always stay safe and be rigorous!!!
