Somehow I disagree with using elastic for the bow string. You see, the energy is stored in the bow and not in the string. The string, in my humble opinion should be made of some unstretchable material, so that all the energy storing and releasing is done by the PVC part of the bow. I see that the string is stretched to its maximum. So at this position we really cannot use the elastic properties of the string. So I don't really see the point in using elastic for the string.
