Well, since bowfishing out of a kayak was tough with a bow, I came up with this rig. It was a slingshot handle with reel attached to the bottom and one single band from mcmaster with 45lbs of pull from mcmaster carr. I know flats are better and faster but I needed durability, no tangles and to push the heavy arrow. I have since modified with aluminum rest as well as a better reel mount and a large knot to pinch on to pull back instead of the loop. It has plenty of power and is a straight shooter and can stay attached like that in the kayak rod hold until ready. Plan on making a quick attach float for the big ones. Might try and undercast reel or a retirever rig next.

With this you can just use a strong headlamp to bowfish with since the light doesnt relect back in your face. Eventually I will make a one piece mold and try to mold one or two. VERY simple design. Will post up better and closer pics of the new and better design..

What do ya think?

Looks solid and functional! Very nice. A video would help show how you use it since its hard to get that from one picture. Or maybe if you posted more pictures of it being pulled, etc...

Very nice!
18 years ago I saw a similar design in a bowfishing magazine used by people in the oceans somewhere.
I always wondered how well it worked. More pictures please.
