This meant to be a toy, it does not exhibit any real properties of a true bow.

This isn't technically a bow... A bow's power comes from the wood, not the string.

If this was a bow the power would come from the wood, not the rubber bands you're using as string. Try it with string instead and bending the skewer. If the skewer is straight grained enough it should bend nicely and be a lot more powerful too.
