    a compound bow is a bow that uses wheels and pulleys to get more power:effort ratio, this means it can be easier to pull but you get more power than an equivalent normal bow

    when i built it it kept on breaking so i fixed it up with some orange connectors

    Amazing build! I want to thank you for the inspiration this project gave me to build my own knex bow. I changed a few things on my version to add weight and make it stronger. 5*
