Avalanche Bow

Introduction: Avalanche Bow

About: I fricken love knex sooooo much.

This looks like a basic, simple bow, but it actually works really well. You can easily customize the arrows and put wings (fletchings) on them. I made this at like 4 in the morning because i was really bored. I just wanna see if it's good enough that people want it. So, to prove so, leave a comment or rate. Thanks :)

    btw, they are called fletchings, not wings... sorry, i just tend to get.... picky.. about archery. hence the name arrowshot. anyways this doesn't look half bad... if i can find my knex, i might be able to make a full sized bow out of this... with your permission of course

    how about a longbow, i haven't seen one, im working on a full scale 2 metre one rite now, too weak because cannot support rubberbands, but its coming alive!!! IT works with fletiching, and you better wear a wrist guard cause it will hurt when it snaps
