The full draw is just like 60-70 cm and the draw weight is almost nothing. But it works! I fired a carbon-fiber a few meters up in the air. Second pic is the bow in non-drawn out condition. The third pic shows it drawn out, but the string broke and thats why its not angled. Its a fun little toy and I will have lots of fun with the finished product <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    I forward the prophecy that you and Onnod are going to be refined (destruction) engineers. The sole hope of the rest of us is that you won't make a joint venture.

    Good job! A long way to go for sure until you will get serious performance, but if it works - great!

    tokSick: Cool, but I think the inaccuracy is because of the arrows.<br><br>Ryan: <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">

    Sure, no accuracy... but that boy seems to have fun <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">. If you look for power and accuracy you will have to improve your prototype. Nice work so far.
