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

    I assume the outer lengths are 14 inches, and the inner lengths are 10 inches?

    How far does it shoot?

    Up to you, but the backing will probably help a lot more than the bends.

    Also, I recommend wrapping the whole thing in one layer of tape, PVC can shatter under torsion.

    Good idea, i'll cover it in duct tape but I still don't think I am going to do the Sinew-backing even though I know it would help a lot.
