    It was just a quick idea , and i want to make to see how it works, but most importing reason to make it was the design witch came in to my mind, it looks good in a wall :D , but because of the heavy arms and the force of spring the string breaks 5 time until now
    And the drawing length its 4O-44 cm

    Love this. I could easily be adapted for rubber power if adequate springs cannot be found. No doubt a similar device could also be made from high quality birch plywood.

    I'm going to have to reevaluate my next project.

    I've seen some small diameter cable at Home Depot that would make a good string for that.

    Yes, I was just thinking that heavy tubing could be used instead of the springs. Very,very interesting indeed!!

    Nice, if I ever designed anything that looked that good I'd copyright it and at least try mass producing. But maybe that's just me...
    I'd try clothesline as a string. It's basically steel rope coated with plastic like stuff, so it should be hard to break

    line breaking

    another idea for your draw string might be fishing line I have seen some of that line go 500lbs + for like deep sea fishing etc....
    It looks like an awesome bow anyways :D great idea

    Well, to shooting with this bow its a little bit strange, because the two arm are independent moving from each other, not always bending symmetrically, also the springs have a specific sound when are released, actually i don't have a decent arrow to shoot , my shame :D
