Introduction: Night-Hawk Scout Bow V3-4

About: I play guitar in two bands and enjoy writing music. I build Knex bows/guns but because of my lack of a digital camera i cant post any of them =/

This is a prototype bow im working on. Its a scout bow so its ment to be small but powerful and trust me this thing packs a punch.
Can fire my arrows 200+ft and that's with old sucky elastic bands.

Its also using a new suspension system in the limbs ( you wont be able to see it form the pics) that allows for huge torque to be put on the bow.

    Could you actually post a how-to guide for making this? you mentioned a new suspension system in the limbs but we cannot see it to properly and correctly replicate any of these designs. Instructions on how to do so would be amazing!

    It would be greatly appreciated if someone uploaded a thoroughly detailed instructable

    PLEASE POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i know you took it apart but just show me like 6 pictures

    Im pretty sure any knex weapon cant shoot over 200ft and still be very accurate.

    You obviously have not seen many knex weapons have you?

    No,i have seen this bow being fired myself its range is incredible and so is the accuracy.

    I broke it up a while ago =/ Ive stopped making knex stuff now.

    In what game? and im sure i never said is wasn't a compound bow.

    Looks really cool!  Better than most of the bow that were recently posted.

    Thanks.

    Oh by the way Radio dj this guys seen my HPR-1 fireing powerful wasen`t it went through 2 cans, Punctured a tin can, and whent straight through 1 can and landed 8 meaters away.

    Don't care.  Any old slingshot can do it.  Silentassassin made a video showing my OSSR shooting through 2 sides of a cardboard box from 20 feet.

    Burned. Check out the side arms thread, he's calling us noobs XD

    Yep , not going to be working on the larger model for a while tho since im taking a break to concentrate on my new band.
