polyester rope as bow sring? Answered
i will soon post an instructable on how to make a reverse compound crossbow. but i've been stuck into something which is quite basic,
the string that needs to be used,
the crossbow will have a draw weight of about 150-175lbs.
i have came across a rope which has a diameter of 4mm, and claims to withstand a tension of 1500N(150KG)
I just want to know if it would be ok to use the rope,
i know that it is very important to use a string specially made for bows and crossbows but we all like it dangerous(especially if you're broke)
thanks in advance
