    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.

    I made something similar but much simpeler, this one just uses too much parts, it looks very cool tho

    Really, Jörg made one even more powerful? Thought i nearly knew all of his vids. Did he made a Video about it? How can i make it simpler?

    Thx

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

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

    Actually, I think you gave me an idea... What if we all tries to come up with a design to be wristmounted, small and accurate like this one? Ideas are already taking shape in my mind... :)

    i would go for a smaller and modified "james bond" one fed from the front with pulleys to increase draw length. would still be powerful enough to penetrate both sides of a coke can with the right bolts.


    ...if i only had the time to build everything i want ...

    Lots of metal in that one, I think I'd use more PVC and leather anywhere possible.
    But is it possible to scale a slingshot down to that level, of course. Just a matter of time and materials.

    Jorg's trojan applicator could be mounted similar to that.

    I'm friends with this guy on FB, this is one his more "rational" builds. Usually, he does coil guns and lasers
