    Finished Crossbow

    Post by SlingerDave on Tue Feb 21, 2017 7:17 am

    So I know it seemed like I had disappeared sometime ago, nevertheless, the three of us (No i don't have multi-personality disorder... this is just a group project. Very Happy ) have finally finished our crossbow. It pulls 155# with an 11" powerstroke, and the bolts are fletched with deer rawhide. Thank you everyone for the advice that we needed, especially geezer for letting us visit and learn all about crossbows. We'll be making a video pretty soon, and we'll all get to see how it shoots. Thanks again for all the help!!!

    Rawhide fletching! That's brilliant. Tough as, well, rawhide, and flexible. Wow.
