    I PUT ANOTHER FLETCHING ON THE ARROWS BECAUSE WHEN THE PLASTIC WEARS IN THE BARREL IT STARTS TO LOOSE POWER AND SLIDES WHEN U HOLD THE PIPE AT AN ANGLE ( THATS VERY BAD IF UR SHOOTING OFF A DOCK )

    I DID SOME LAST MINUTE CHANGES TO THE MOUNTING STUFF TO KEEP IT SMOOTH TO THE TOUGH WHEN THE HOSE CLAMPS TIGHTEN ON THE BARREL

    ALSO I PUT A GRIP FOR YOUR HAND TO HOLD ON TO SO YOUR HAND DONT SLIP WHEN STALKING MR. SUCKER :wink:

    OVER ALL I DONT THINK IT LOOKS TOO BAD

    LAST BUT NOT LEAST ( VERY IMPORTANT ).... THE BRAIDED LINE IS VERY HARD ON THE LIPS THEN THREADING THE AROW THROUGH THE MUZZLE AND OUT OF THE BREECH.... I MADE A SMALL SLOT AND MADE IT VERY SMOOTH SO NO BURS MAKE U LOOSE UR CATCH :crazy:

    DONT SEPERATE THE TOO FLETCHINGS WITH TAPE.... IM SHOOTING MILK JUGS AND THEY BEND AND WEAR IN THE BARRELL TO MUCH..... JUST PUT BOTH OF THEM AT THE HEAD....AND IF I GET A SHOT AT A 15 LBER I WANT THE BARDS TO BE IN AS FAR AS POSSIBLE
    ............................................................................................................................
    WHEN TYING THE LINE TO THE ARROW MAKE A SERGIONS LOOP AND THEN THREAD IT AROUND THE SHAFT.
    ............................................................................................................................

    I THINK THAT THOSE ARROWS WILL TAKE SOME SERIOUS POUNDAGE CAUSE I MADE THEM AS TOUGH AS NAILS...... (A THAKNKYOU):roll_eyes:

    AND I HOPE THE BARDS WILL HOLD UP TOO



    THE BIGGEST CARP SO FAR THAT IVE SEEN HERE AT LHC IS ABOUT 2 1/2 FEET LONG AND SWALLOWED A HOLE MAMBUGER BUN.... THERE ARE ONES LIKE THIS BUT A BIT SMALLER AT THE LAUNCH RAMPS...

    ANY SUGGESTIONS OR QUESTIONS???????

    how does the line from the reel hold up what kind and what test are you using ? and did you take a blowgun and modify it to fish

    keep us informed. sounds pretty cool. when i was 16 i made an arrow with swivvels and line and had a reel clamped to my bow. there was large fish in a small spillway. i had the rig working well. but the ranger informed me not to do it lol. so i never got to give it the real try. they were bass.

    keep the pics coming. sure intresting.
