    As you guys can see from the picture my slingbow use a rail to guide the arrow powered by the rubber band in tension..<br>the part where the band catches the arrow is just tape wrapped to reduce friction. the arrows flies straight sometimes and sometimes randomly..ive though of adding a whisker biscuit but the part where the trigger holds the arrow don't catch on the standard bolt diameter, therefore I have to tape the ends to make it thicker..<br>.this is why a whisker busicuit wouldn't work well as it would catch on the duct tape..any tips to stabilize the arrow for flight and hits target everytime..current accuracy is 10 inch circle at 4meters lol<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=7&u=18259016" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i80.servimg.com/u/f80/18/25/90/16/pictur16.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=8&u=18259016" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i80.servimg.com/u/f80/18/25/90/16/pictur17.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=9&u=18259016" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i80.servimg.com/u/f80/18/25/90/16/pictur18.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=12&u=18259016" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i80.servimg.com/u/f80/18/25/90/16/pictur21.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=13&u=18259016" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i80.servimg.com/u/f80/18/25/90/16/pictur22.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Two things to me that stand out. First, not too likely but possible, is the groove to guid the arrow looks a bit too narrow, on the regular midevil croosbows I'v made only the top half of the arrow is visible when it's in the groove. Second, something to hold the arrow from the top, possibly a strip of sheet metal mounted under the scope bent to resemble a finger coming out from under the scope touching/holding the top of the arrow. The reason for that is, that when the trigger is pulled there are small vibrations that cannot be seen, those vibrations cause the arrow to stray from the groove (angain not visible) before energy from the band is fully transfered into it sending the arrow in a weird direction. Good luck bro.

    The carbon fibre wrap looks great! I have been working on a bow and have just stained it. I didn't think of wrapping it with vinyl!
