    Why does that video use Xtra-normal voice over ....it simply reeks of a badly made video with the person using Xtra normal as the source for the voice over ... rather cheap way of video creation imo

    Another movie about archery.

    War Of The Arrows (2012)
    It's on Netflix also.

    Trailer
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDyIjb272kU


    There's a scene where the main character uses a half-length arrow. Because of half-weight x same force propelling it forward x less air resistance = higher velocity, which translates into greater impact. It passes by quickly but it's interesting how the main character shoots a half-length arrow. It's in the scene when the Mongols are chasing after him, near end of the movie.

    Not just archery but many skills have been forgotten over time, like near handwriting and being able to have fun without computer game...

    I'd like to see him go head to head with Bob Munden.

    * I meant Byron whats-his-name. Although Bob can shoot bows pretty well too.

Watching that prompted me to read on the Physics of Archery, as I found it quite interesting regarding the speed he shot arrows, that there was even time for oscillation and for it to not go off target. Excellent technique, great video, thanks for posting Ought Six.

    It is important that the time it takes for the arrow to oscillate through one full cycle is approximately the time it takes for the arrow to exit the bow. If the oscillation time is too slow the back of the arrow may "slap" the bow shaft when it flies past, causing it to deflect off course and veer too far to the right. If the oscillation time is too fast, the arrow flight path may not straighten out sufficiently and it will veer to the left of the target.http://www.real-world-physics-proble...f-archery.html
    Here's another video on topic, one of my favorite clips on Archery.
