This bow can be made in under 10 minutes for under $10 but can lead to hours of fun.  David Hughes taught me this so all credit goes to him. 



Step 1: Materials

4-5 ft. 1/2 in. pvc
100 lb. parachute cord
1/2 in. pipe insulation
Two 1/2 in. pvc end caps
duct tape

<p>If you would like to increase the draw strength without increasing pipe diamater than you might substitute Schedule 80 pipe(it's stronger too)</p>
<p>cool</p>
<p>No one can brake pvc bow of perfect draw length 1_1&divide;4 inch schedule 40 pvc pipe of 56 inch can be turned into 80 pound bow what I use. 1.5 inch pvc can make even more what I have 1 but I cant draw it fully. Also u can give a awesome look like wooden finish etc. But one has to make it properly look for backyard bower on youtube. Its a new idea and we shall appreciate it. Because many great ideas were lost because of our ignorance and inappreciation.</p>
<p>you should heat it before bending so it wont break</p>
Don't pull back too hard! That bow looks like it would shatter under that kind of strain. It'll fly apart right where you're holding it.
