Crazy bow. Built just for fun. Made almost impossible to shoot.
The sight window is a standard
right hand design but the grip is upside down. One limb and cable is white, the other is black. One limb has an eccentric wheel the other has a cam.

Rare prototype cam in string design
This bow was made using a

Cam is built in to bowstring. Makes
an interesting design but not one that
works. The cam hits the limb when shot.
This bow also features a cable guard with
a roller and slide.
