Well the PVC was 5 feet . i was reading that a 5 foot would give a 25 pound pull. but your right we still need to test it to be safe and yes i did get the arrows at big 5 but for $2 cant go wrong

Yeah thats what I thought on my arrows til they started falling apart on me, I'm sure they'll last you a good while as long as you take care of them and replace the nocks when needed. Have you made any arrows yet or started looking for kits/materials?

You can expect to spend 1-2 hours per arrow making sure they are balanced, glueing, wrapping, covering, etc. You could try melting a type of handle on that pvc bow by melting the area your hand would go and giving a small indent where an arrow could rest. THis makes me wanna try a pvc bow even if I have my fibreglass one now Very Happy

Im going to bring it I still need to finish it. I was thinking of just makeing a foam handle because the bow is off a bit. Once i craft a legendary bow then ill melt the handle on and make it look awsomeness
