    Nice bow, it looks powerful, im just worried about the PVC tension, i dont want it to shatter or snap if i make it. What did you use for the trigger?

    In my experience PVC pipe doesn't shatter even when bent to extreme amounts, It just kinks and doesn't work as a bow anymore. I have a 3/4 in PVC crossbow that shoots at 190-250 fps, 400+ shots on it, and no problems with the PVC pipe so far.

    how much tension you think you get with the pvc? Never thought it could be used for tension.
