Reflex longbow

Reflex longbow

A reflex bow is a bow that has curved or curled arms that turn away from the archer throughout their length. When unstrung, the entire length of the bow curves forward from the belly (away from the archer), resembling a "C"; this differentiates a reflex bow from a recurve bow in which only the outer parts of the limbs turn away from the archer. The curves put the materials of the bow under greater stress, allowing a fairly short bow to have a high draw weight and a long draw length. The materials and workmanship must be of high quality. Highly-reflexed bows are more difficult to string and may reverse themselves suddenly; they have seldom been used for hunting or for war. #bow #broń #distance #drewniane #drewniany #drewno #dystansowa #długi #long #medieval #metal #metalowe #metalowy #miotająca #ranged #refleksyjny #shape #weapon #wood #wooden #łuk #średniowiecze #średniowieczna #średniowieczny
