    Flyerminer, i just made a Bow and arrow that's like 1 1/2 feet long.

    check out humpty95's bow it's around 2' and shoots 75'

    I have now posted my new knex bow.look for it!

    I might make instructions for my knex bow that shoots fairly well, but that depends on the rubber band. mine uses less pieces i think and isn't really complicated at all.

    but your design looks cool and it seems that it shoots pretty decent.
    nice job.

    why does everyone makes it so uncomfortably big and way to advanced try something more simple
