Yes, the bow and arrow is illegal to turn your opponent regardless of the angle you try to turn at from the spine.  Once you step across the body with the ankle it is illegal by application.

If you have your opponent turned and on his back, you may reach back for the ankle and hold it.

Sorry, but I don't have my rule book with me to point to the rule and picture.

Correction...

After discussing this with others, even after you have turned your opponent this would be illegal if you reached back for the ankle and bowed it.

This is something some of us used to allow but will no longer allow by application.
