this is were it all began folks. I finally finished it.

Its not to my usual standard as it was the first custom I attempted back in January and I did not have the skills then as I do now. I kinda like how it is...

This will eventually end up as a slingbow as soon as I find a cheap Whisker Biscuit

It is no slouch in the power stakes either, I have just treated it to a better pouch and paracord brace though as it still had the originals on.

I just wish I had an arrow rest. Those thera blue tubes will send a 495 grain arrow with some poke

I have a spare Whisker Biscuit its a full circle type, you insert the arrow from the back, its yours if it is any good to you. I am based about 16 miles n/e of Gainsborough or I can pop it in the post.

That is a very well done mod! It certainly improves the appearance, and I'll bet it is more functional as well.

Cheers ...... Charles

My car is SORN as insurance is too high and its only about 7mpg at the minute but if you would be so kind as to post it, in return I will post you a catty in way of a thank you (a nice simple natural)?

Many thanks to N.Bird

Just need to re-make a new pouch to take nocks and this will be an arrow flinging monster.

Test shots are very promising. It has approx 55# draw weight.
