The bow was glued together with smooth-on epoxy, with the stress areas being wrapped in 50lb nylon monofilament. These wrappings were then covered in satin ribbon for the ?snakey? look. Several coats of clear auto lacquer were used to bond these ribbons to the bow.
I have to confess to cribbing the aesthetic from Spitfire Horsebows in Canada.
I?m not sure how far it will shoot as I?ve only used it indoors at 18m so far. I made it a light draw weight on purpose to learn the ring. Having said that, as it?s short with low limb mass it does seem quite fast for its size, though I doubt it?ll be setting too many distance records.
Hi, another fine bow. I don't think poundage was that critical for horseback hunting or warfare Indians were feet away from the buffaloes they killed and most hunting on foot is done at close range and the hun relied on speed of horse and to attack at close range didn't need great poundage just good cast.
