    • A:

      Very much so yes, it depends on the design, whether you recurve it, pipe type, pvc diameter/length, you can also make a fiberglass rod core to increase the power of the bow with some designs, one of his highest draw weight pvc bows is an 80 pound at 28 inch draw longbow made from one sch 40 1-1/4 inch diameter pvc pipe

    • A:

      Yes. It depends on the thickness of the pipe, limb length, draw length, etc., but several of the bows Nick makes shoot in excess of 40 lbs. I made a simple one (so-called "bushcraft" bow) using two orange fiberglass rods you get at a big box store for driveway markers as reinforcing inside a 4' piece of 1/2" gray electrical conduit that pulls 42 lb at 28". Nick is a PVC wizard and an artist in his designs, and it is really cool to make one of his recurve bows out of a piece of 1" schedule 40 white pipe. Some of his PVC-only bows are supposed to go 50+ lbs.
