Because I've never liked the original for a few reasons.

A glittering, flashing longbow, containing every hue of the rainbow, appears in your hands. A Prismatic Bow functions as a longbow with an enhancement bonus equal to one fourth your caster level, rounded down. In addition, once per round you can choose to imbue an arrow shot from it with prismatic light. In addition to its normal effect, upon hitting a target, the target is treated as if it was hit by the spell Prismatic Spray (including blindness for 2d4 rounds if the target has 8 HD or fewer). Saves and spell resistance apply to this effect as normal for prismatic spray, save that it's treated as an 8th level spell.

You are automatically considered proficient with a prismatic bow.

No one else can use your prismatic bow; should you drop the bow or let go of it, it vanishes as if the spell had ended. If you cast this spell a second time while a previous version is still in effect, the first prismatic bows duration ends.
