    First topic message reminder :

    Which is better for a beginner with a limited access to tools? And how would one go about bolting the prod to the stock?

    ya i pretty much have the same question. right now im working on a roller nut crossbow w/ a 150lb. fiberglass prod(i know its not a period prod. gonna cover it w/ leather). the crossbow was a fleamarket pickup that looks like a homemade project that already was set up with irons. my prod fits but is loose and wobbles. so i might bind it . i was told by fellow sca members to use " handy hundred" string to bind it since it doesnt stretch but cant find the stuff anywhere. so whats a good cheap easy to find at my local hardware store string to bind with?

    Walmart has nice, heavy hemp cord in the craft section. A big ball is cheap too.
