(The prod is glassfibre too by the way!) <br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/bild0115.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Both are very functional and pretty accurate.<br><br>Sorry for bad pic-quality, I used my webcam to take the Pictures as it didnt work with my camera. Hope you like it! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>//Alfred aka Failure

    Actually it is pretty much at its maximum, maybe I can stretch it a few cm more. When you have a longer prod every invidual section of the stick can bend more. If I stretch it back much more I here that cracking sound no archer want to hear...

    I made bolts like the metal one you have. I made the, with the steel rod inserted into a dowel and duct tape fletch ing and I shoot them with my cobra pistol crossbow and they can go through 3/4 inch plywood.
