That is an interesting concept.

For some reason, and I'm sure there is beyond my capabilities, I could not get the media insert option to work on this youtube but the link works.

Interesting concept. I wonder what the poundage is.

Wow. No offense to the originator, but I can't wait until a "big name" company rips off this idea. ( :doh2: LOL!)

Obviously, the short power stroke is in relation to the cocking mechanism. But, it needs to be reworked, if not re-engineered, to gain a longer power stroke. I've found best performance/flight out of bolts that are at least 20" in length. (16" is entirely too short!) Ditch the hardwood for some lighter composite. Shave some weight and bulk off of the thing, in general. Yeah... Then we would be in business. I think even I'd be interested in buying. :yes:

Very interesting idea and principle.... but the hunting regs in Arkansas require no less than 125lbs of draw weight this bow doesn't give specifics of the draw weight. The crossbow companies in America make some very nice products. I have a Horton Stag recurve crossbow that I got when I was 17,(I'm 29 now) I've had to replace the caps on the end of the limbs and the string itself, but that's it other than the bolts. It's 150lbs of draw weight, and it will still fling a bolt straight through a piece of 1/2' plywood at 30 yds.... and I mean ALL THE WAY THROUGH.....(found that out while using a foam block target with a piece of 1/2" plywood behind it as a back stop.)
