OK, that is beyond awesome. I have wanted to learn to use the bow, now I really want to know how to use the "proper" way. The question that I have is this how the Mongols shot? It is likely and I think it may explain the ridiculous draw weight, if you aren't pulling back all the way the draw weight wouldn't as much of an issue would it?

That is awesome! Thanks for posting.

(But I must ask, is the narrator a robot? His voice and delivery sounded very robotic to me.)

Great video but what the heck is up with that narration? Computer generated? Were there no live people available?

Um...

How much is that guy's assistant getting paid? He's throwing up targets while standing in front of an archer who's firing as fast as he can, and they're both in an enclosed space.

I guess it's not as big a deal with a non-compound bow, but I've seen arrows ricochet, and yeesh.

I'm going to assume the narrator's a robot because everyone else is too scared.

(or... because there's an English divide?)

I agree, the narrator was extremely strange and annoying.

But the archer guy was pretty cool.

Good lord that computer generated narrator's voice was awful.

But the stunts were amazing. The last one - running backwards, firing three arrows in 1.1 seconds, and hitting three thrown targets? Incredible.

The woman is that video is amazingly fast - but still it looks like she shoots at best at half the speed of this Lars guy.

From the sound of it, it sounds like a machine translation of what the story would have been in Danish. Not only are there tonal and pronunciation issues, but there are also grammar structure issues that make it clear that this is derived from a language that has different syntax and use from English.

That was something more amazing than I thought possible! WOW! The 11 arrows up before the first one hit the ground? WHOA. Also, spin shot to get the apple? Totally badass.

Not bothered by narration because all I could hear was myself going "HOLY S*$%#!!!"
