    this is my medieval cross bow that was an actual crossbow (that worked) that i made how they probably would have been made back then... (maybe accept for the drilled holes :D ) no screws or metal!!
    and for my first crossbow prod (the bow bit) i couldn't believe that it was functional!!!
    Until.....
    It started to stay in the "bowed" form. and i decided i wanted to try and bend it backwards while it was unstrung.... Snap!!!

    Yep, which was dumb!

    But never fear!! theraband gold is here!!!! :D

    Nice! Love to see creative solutions. So, how does it shoot with the TBG?

    Thanks guys!
    Hm, BV, I'm um, not such the video maker.. :D

    Withak:
    Yeah, it shoots alright with tbg... But not as effective or satisfying as with the original yew prod (bow bit :D)
    Is definitely not as authentic! But still fun!!!
