    Nice! Too bad the vid ends a bit early. Will we see some impact footage soon?

    Unfortunately, the Zombie ran faster than 156 fps.

    The shot was only a proof of principle to demonstrate the feasibility of pulling an arrow.

    Your Bad Ass wing nut video was the inspiration for my design.

    Thanks again,

    Note: The spoon was left round and dull.
    The spoon was taped to the dowel to make the total weight.

    Next: Pointed sharpened spoon smoothly integrated to the dowel.
    Tube behind trigger mechanism as arrow holder/guide.


    I am sure that you could do a much better job than I did, and I would like to see what you can make.

    Warmest regards,

    BoyntonStu

    That thing's super-scary and really interesting!
    I'd love to see more of it.
