i stay with simpler constructions. it's just for the look but doesn't bring better performance the more complex it is. also more parts that can break.

I´d say anyone can make one like that, simpler and more powerful. Sure it looks awesome, but it looks much more complex than it is.

Nice but not satisfying, the real thing is a compound, isnt it?

The little thing from popsci is not a compound-bow.
