    Mongol laminated bow One of The Mongols’main weapons was the bow. Their technical innovation was the stiff syah and the string channel, giving extra speed to the arrow. Materials: wood, fibre glass, horn, epoxy, genuine leather, bandage thread. specification Length strung 56 1/3" String length 53 1/2 (5)" Draw weight (lbs) up to 60 lbs Draw length up to 32" Bracing height 7" Bow length 52 1/3" Average weight 600 g description Composite bows are different from the Western European simple bows (so called longbows) in a way that in all cases several pieces of horn and wood were stuck together in layers, with bone stiffening. The form and structure of these were extremely diverse, but it is typical of all of them that in un-drawn condition they become bent strongly backwards, and this negative bending also remains in drawn condition in a length of 1-2 hand span at both ends of the bow. Turkish-Tartar composite bows, which represent the best of reflex bows, ensured a relatively high initial speed. During the reign of Genghis Khan (1206-27) the Mongolian empire extended from Western China to Asia Minor and Eastern Europe. After his death the empire was torn into pieces, when his four sons shared it. The Mongolian mounted army was characterised by loyalty, discipline, severity and quickness, and a form of warfare which Western people (German, Polish, Hungarian) faced helplessly. The Mongols, with wide ranging reconnaissance, prepared battles, and during the battle directed their tactical manoeuvres with signal flags. One of the Mongols' main arms was the bow, their technical innovation was the steep horn and the string stool, which gave better dynamics to the arrow.
