    Post by Daniel Levesque on Fri Apr 21, 2017 12:58 pm

    Hello everyone,

    I want to start a new crossbow projetc. In fact, I will build 2 crossbows simultaneously (one in the german style with an ebony tiller and hickroy bow and a cavalry crossbow with a mahogany tiller and hickory prod).

    Both will have a brace height of 3 inches and a power stroke of 5 inches for a total draw length of 8 inches... sounds about right ?

    I tought the prod should be between 26 to 30 inches (so let's say 28 inches knock to knock)... what do you guys think ?


    BTW : the prod will be 2 inches in the center tapered to 1 inch tat the knocks and maybe 3/4 inch wide at the center to about 1/2 inch at the knocks.

      Current date/time is Fri Aug 18, 2017 10:24 am
