Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

Neptune 15 offers yet another permutation, whether it delivers any better performance one can only speculate.

That missing trigger piece finally showed up, in fact the seller sent all the trigger components again, but they took some time to arrive and I had nearly given up on it. Will put it together in the New Year as for now I have lost interest in it.

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

Just revisiting the "Krysis" (mid-life?) bow pages and it looks like only two have been sold!
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/32-KRYSI....c100276.m3476
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Archery-...53.m1438.l2649

Could be the name is "Kresis" as it is spelled that way on the second page.

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

This looks like the same gadget for a lot less. However the bow riser is alloy, not carbon fiber. The riser is the vertical part that you hold onto.

Yet another version called the "Cupid" and less expensive again at 454 bucks.

The terminology is shown here (for a plain vanilla compound bow).

Finally found a video for the "Krysis".

If you are a beer can or a watermelon, be afraid, very afraid (watch the latter part of the video)! Here it is called a compound catapult. I predict the price will tumble if they want to sell many of these "bows", which are not really a bow, except for the overall shape.

What a monumental ripoff, for that price you could get a year old high end compound.

Yes, it is a con job of smoke and mirrors if you think that you are buying a compound bow. This gadget should be a half or less of the price because it is a slingshot and should be priced accordingly. The six band loops at each end are going to wear out, note that the energy storage can be varied by detaching some of them from the swinging bar that they loop over.

Rubber under stress is prone to ozone cracking, note the white appearance on the rubber which shows the tight bending stresses on the engaged loops, and that is without any draw on the bowstring! In storage it would be desirable to disengage all the rubber loops or expect a decrease in their service life.
