    As I was making a slingshot crossbow for my dad the other day I thought about to re-design it with rollers, by making a attachment slot for the flatbands in the stock, going around two rollers in the front and then back again. This way, the attachment point will be 10-15 cm behind the trigger, making prestretching un-avoidable. <br><br>What do you guys think? Should I try this new design or go for a simpler, long crossbow without rollers or prestretch?<br><br>Thanks<br><br>//AB

    i'm with lars, you can learn by trying, but i would do the rolles with the bands attached halfway, like with the pully bullpup

    Joerg mentioned to me that rollers used with bands makes the ammo travel inconsistently

    Yes, with rollers you have 2 variables more that may change from shot to shot. 1) the differential friction of the rollers and 2) the differential friction of the bands over the rollers, that makes unfolding of the bands less synchronized.
