I put light blue spacers between the 2 orange pieces on both sides, it makes it stronger.

i would say that the extra orange attatches to the end of the grey connecter giving it something to connect to the band with.

Great job! This is the first thing I've ever built and it came out great. P.S. This can also be used to shoot pencils and such.

thats pretty sweet, man, I made one myself but flipped the top yellow piece around to hold different "arrows." It actually fires quite well mind the sparatic way some of the "arrows" fly

author

Namlem (author)2008-01-20

This is sweet. It took like 5 minutes to make and it's really powerful! It takes a few seconds to load but that's a reasonable trade off.

author
maxmaz2 (author)2008-01-08

author
GreekGuy (author)2007-12-01

author
ojochris (author)2007-10-13

ThaJuzz (author)2007-09-12

You know, u can make the arrows better, with a small orange connector at the en and a red connector in front, it looks like a real arrow then! :) I made it too, and its a wonderfull bow :) good job!

author
fuzz775 (author)2007-08-24

i liked this it was so cool and it is pretty powerful but its inaccurate. i trid to upgrade to become a crossbow like mrbob1000 suggested but i couldnt so i made it accurate instead. i am going to post an instructable with some good arrows and the upgrade. look for it!!

looks powerful, did you get the idea from mine?

author
mrbob1000 (author)2007-08-17

this looks great and it looks like it could easily morph into a crossbow with only a handle and a few more knex
