Bend Test Part 3: Extended draw-stressing a PVC recurve bow



all right there's the rig that I use to keep the bow stressed it's 23 inches long the brace light was seven inches 271 quarters inches so we're going to see exactly what will happen after i'll check after a few hours and maybe i'll check tomorrow as well here it is just leaving itself up fairly nice i'm a little worried so I'm keeping it as far away from where people are walking as I can see in a bit

  1. LOL, September of last year 😛

    Hey, if people still watch it, cool 🙂 It's short, and the series shows what happens if you leave a bow overstressed. Kinda cool – you notice on the tillering tree I built, if you leave a bow pulled, the weight drops noticeably! I wonder how long it would take to develop a set like this, and how much is elastic…

  2. Definitely, this bow could still shoot – in fact, this was abused quite a lot! I turned it into the "Pocket Rocket" bow, then broke it in a bend test 🙂

  3. nice one timbo i reckon it will be ok, pipes made to eat that kind of stress up, might lose a bit of its original shape but should still be shoot able 😉 Tom.
