CFSB-1 survival bow.

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

CFSB-1 survival bow.

Post by armydawg11b » Mon Feb 18, 2013 8:16 pm

Everyone go check out the CFSB-1 (collapsible folding survival bow) not only is it super accurate, but it folds to fit in your pack. here is the video.

That is really cool! I was just discussing with a friend of mine that the need for a quality take-down bow is huge.

Saw Dave shooting one on his channel a little while back. Might get one to put mess around with and another to add to the pack if I end up liking it.

this looks like a pretty good deal for around $200 (S&H not included) you can have what looks like a decent kit

Bow $130
6 Arrows $ 30
Glove $ 10
Guard $ 10
Silencers $ 4
extra string $ 10

Total(less S&H) $194

if you input "PATHFINDER" in the coupon area you get a free bow string

Like I said looks like a good deal BUT until someone actually gets it for a ZS review we'll wait an see....

Hm. If he put a bit more time into his shot, and took some time to tune the bow and reshoot that video we could hopefully get a better idea of how accurate it is. Dave Canterberry makes a better showing with it.

I like the idea... but you can't fold down arrows or a quiver so the utility of this would be limited for me.

I have a takedown recurve bow that cost me less. It's not quite as compact, but since you can't make arrows and quiver more compact... see where I'm going with this?

And making your own arrows is a bitch.

If I had to ever make my own arrows in a pinch, I might as well just make a bow with some branches and 550 because I probably won't be hitting shit at past about 20-30 feet.

Their take down arrows seem pretty compact. And even if the entire system isn't compact, some parts are. It's easier to store a few larger items and a smaller one then all larger items. But the bow and some take down arrows don't seem like they will be taking up too much space.

Anyway I just ordered one. 60lb bow. 6 arrows. String silencers. Spare string. With shipping it came to around $174. It's out of stock with a 2-4 week wait but when it arrives I'll be sure to start a topic on it.

Seems like a great idea. Are there another company making one or just this so far?

Actually, I want to say some company did. Composite two-part shaft, went, in this order:
Nock-fletched end of shaft-male insert, female insert-shaft-female insert for head.
Not sure how durable they were or who made them, but I remember seeing them.

In the video Dave posted on his youtube channel, I believe he's using the take down arrows he sells on his website.

Got mine in and took this picture for a friend on Facebook so figured I'd share it.

Having not done archery in years, I am pretty happy with it. I'll do a full write up on it in week or two, including zombie targets.

They've been around much longer than that, I've seen and handled 50-150 year old examples in Manchester Museum's archery collection, and many different arrows are made in multiple parts that fit together. Take down arrows have existed in that form for thousands of years. Often when shaft material is poor, the shaft is replaceable and the head and a footing reusable.

How's it shoot? How sturdy does the construction feel? What's the Handshock like? Any Buzz or extra noise? I look forward to your write up.

I'll be sure to address those things. As I haven't done something like this on a bow before anything else you'd like me to address?

My friend is supposed to be bringing his Specter survival bow so I'll be able to mention some things about how it compares to that hopefully next weekend, so long as no more school work and holidays crop up.

For the price these look pretty good. I'd invest if I could get one in the UK at a reasonable price. Look forward to a good review of one.
