Bath Tub: Europeans long now looses with its central Asian counterpart, for comparisons see the video of Mughal composite bow which penetrated double plate armour, while longbow only 1 plat armour
Vccine: Much further and faster than any european opponent*? What time period is he talking about specifically? As far as I know, english warbows had a maximum draw weight potential of over 180 pounds. I doubt these bows had the same.
Takingout thetrash: longbow suck, as does the long sword, as does European knights
Asians are smart and they revolutionize warfare
KravaLLT: Powerful JRE
John Adams: these bows were up to 160lb draw weight, try lifting 160lb with ur right hand :P
Vidar Burström: wut m8?
james taylor: i want one
Vovk3: I hate to be that one pickle, but the narrator of the original video is a douche. Never before seen in Europe? Get real.
Pedro Ferreira: What a beauty!
JerryJr65: I can't answer your specific question about longbows, but one curiosity is that while the yew bow is universally associated with the English, at least during the Hundred Year's War period when longbow archery was at its peak, the yew staves were being imported from the Mediterranean region. Of the archery woods naturally available in England & Wales, elm seems to have been the most popular, but it is pretty funny stuff imagining the staves of the iconic English longbow coming in from Italy! :P
Dakotah Jennings: Wow I wish I had one of those bows....
Shinzhon: damn I was so surprised when he turned the entire bow on itself xD these guys are seriously epic
Gerardo Tasistro: Quick video showing how a composite bow is made.
FuzeDestroy: Lol me and my friends would just go out and rip bendy wood and we would tie a shoe string. It worked enough to have fun with it. And this was when i was like 9 years of age.
Youssef Cherqaoui: معهم معهم :))

Shunuu Baatar: THIS MODERN MONGOLIAN BOWS DESIGNED FOR ARCHEREY CONTESTS AND ARE MADE FROM MOUNTAIN GOAT HORN SO IT NARROW AND LONG. THE BOWS WHICH MADE FROM OX HORN WERE SHORTER AND FAR MORE POWERFUL. THAT WAS REAL WAR BOW.
TheJimmyoneleg: "Compound bow?" A compound has cables and cams and was invented in the middle of last century. I think you mean 'composite' meaning made of more than one material.
