you can heat PVC right on your stove, make sure to keep rotating or moving PVC so heat isn't concentrated on one area. PVC is also great for blowguns and crossbows.

You heat the PVC until it is flexible enough to bend be careful NOT to burn the PVC

wow, i love it. simple. how did you bend the PVC? (sorry, newbie speaking)

Go to you tube and search up backyard bowyer
He has lots of good videos on how to make PVC bows and what not

what is the draw weight?

Right now it's about 20lb
But when I tighten up the strings ,it's about 30lbs

That looks great! Would love to see how it was made.

Thanks
I'll try to make an actual instructable on it today
