If you have access to such inexpensive prods please share your sources.  
Be aware that an 80# prod may have to be significantly underdrawn to be 
legal.  Likewise there may be problems with making a legal bow from a 
50# prod.

I would also be careful of of cheap fiberglass rod.  Make sure it is a 
good quality linear pultruded rod.  We have had problems with cheap 
quality fiberglass many times in the past.

Also with all of the issues that there have bene recently with padding 
please make sure you use a good wuality padding.  I recommend a 4# 
density crosslinked PE foam.

If you are making it all yourself and have all the tools, even at the 
prices you list below using a siloflex APD each bolt is going to cost 
you$1.50 or more each.
