Hi,
Just want to share what I'm working on with you:

I have been working in a project like the Columbian PVC bows.
That is a low price bow so anyone can learn to shot a bow.


I made a couple of prototypes that are working amazingly considering the cost of materials and the simplicity of making.
Took two of them to a class of my friend Diego (compound archer) so they can try my bows.
They like the so much that I give one to Carlucho (the one on the wheel chair).
These simple bows shot .600 carbon arrows at 125 fps. with good accuracy.
I have to find how to make good arrow as the bow cost as much as one arrow.


Thanks
Martin

Thanks, just want to share it.
PVC bow are pretty easy to make but good PVC bows are more difficult.
I tried two time to make a centershot PVC bow but it collapses both times.
My plan is to design a standard design so I can make many similar bows in order to create a class for competition.
Another option is to offer the bow to new archers as part of their instruction.
Thanks
Martin
