I shoot, and have made some pvc bows recently.

They are done in the style of mongolian horse bows. Awesome for target shooting in the back yard.

It has been a very long time. But....3D.

Have not touched it since the last time I cleaned it.

I  have a setup for my Wrist Rocket for arrows. Shot many squirrels with it. It's a ton of fun

How does it compare power wise? Same, even, better?

John

Power wise, it's not the same at all. My setup is 40 years old. My slingshot has very stiff bands, making it very difficult to pinch the arrow and attain a full draw. Just guessing here, but the arrow flight is at 100 fps or less. No comparison to a bow. Flat out, my Hoyt setup, with an overdraw and carbon arrows, is about 310 fps

Wrist rockets can still put food on a plate.

3D club shoot is on Sunday and she wont shut up about it! Hahaha.

Any other arrow flingers out there? It's a great game.

You’re the best! That’s beyond neat. So nice of you! Y’all have fun tomorrow! [Image: QrbZLXw.gif]

From what I have seen, it works really well!

Just got back, she had a great time, the bow wasn't too much for her, actually she was getting a little disgruntled because her arrows went penetrating the practice target, it's only 15 pouns so it'll do for awhile. On the 3d course though she got some good shots in, killed a Turkey with a shot right in the head and her best was a near perfect shot on a deer.

Its good fun, anyone that has considered doing 3d archery I recommend it, will def be going back next fortnight.

They are bloody awesome PickeSnout do you roughly know the poundage of them? The guy we shot with today was shooting a wooden one like that Mongolian Hoese Bow right? I couldn't believe how light it was.

My compound prob weighs obout 4kgs with all the gadgets, I love speed and accuracy.
