Was shooting with a friend this morning and he use one of his selbow longbow laminated maple and white ash. we shoot for an hour and sudendly the big crash happen. The bow broke where the laminating was .He use Gorilla glue . Can it be this glue doesnt like cold wheather was 18 Ferenheit. Any idea what went wrong. This is his first laminated bow he make he produce many longbow one piece before and no major problem.
Thank you for your input.

from when i have seen gorilla glue used, not for bows or something like that, when it dries it has little air bubbles in it. if he used gorilla glue for the whole lamination and it had bubbles in it, it could have just busted because it wasnt a solid lamination. this is just my input and i dont know what other think but thats my thoughts. and possibly, depending on how old the bow is, the glue could have gotten brittle and broke. hope this helps you but if im wrong someone will correct me.
