Bundle Bow made with atlatl darts?
Nov 13th, 2010 at 6:10pm
 
I was using my atlatl, and i realized since the darts are so bendable, why not use em to make a bundle bow if need be?
i didnt do it, but based only on the effectivness, would you guys say it would work? im thinking yes, though i dont see why you would ditch atlatl ammo for a bundle bow

im sure it would work since the darts are flexible anyways

but if your in a situation where you have  a few atlatls darts ,it would be easier to make an atlatl than make your darts into a bow..then make arrows for said bow  Grin

It can be done, but I don't think it will work very well.  With  6 foot darts, figure a 2 foot overlap, now you have a ten foot bow.  It will be very awkward to use and probably not have very good cast.  Any more than that and you have to worry about the darts breaking when you draw.  They are flexable but probably not enough to make a bow.  You would probably be better off throwing the dart like a javeline.  Bill

im thinking a bundle bow with scarf join atlatls. just in a pinch for some reason, i think it could be done, maybe ill test it sometime, since my darts are just dowell rods from sears.
