I was looking for a design for a knex bow.(for a play at school)lol I made a rubber band bow, but I want to try to make a real string bow for school and battle bow for home. Any ideas?

A rubberband bow is more powerful than a rope bow. I have a rope bow myself. The range is GREAT. It is able to shoot right trough a block of wood.

the most hard thing is getting a arrow to slide smoothly over a long area. Like on yours, is has a connector in it, and it will toatally mess it up somtimes. i suggest you look at this this

Lolz my idea worked to perfection(almost) although it doesn't fire knex its still cool. I made it by heavily fortifying my crossbows front bow.

i would probably use alot of grey rods connected by orange connectors all next to each other(with a handle and hand guard) not sure about what to use for arrows though
