Introduction: PVC Bow

This is a horse bow i made using a 4' length of 3/4 inch schedule 40 PVC. I bended the PVC by heating it over a stove. I strung it with 1/8" nylon cord. The fletching on the arrow is made with duct tape. Currently, it can shoot an arrow about 50 yards.

you could improve your longbow by shaping it like this one

This is better then your PVC longbow

I know, the pvc longbow was just my excess pvc from making this bow.

Can You use 1 and 1/4 inch pvc?

I don't think that would work too well, but I've never tried it so maybe.

have you trained moka to retrieve the arrows?

Nice build! What diameter of pipe is that?

Thanks. You might want to add that to the Ible.
