The Mongols used a variety of archery tools including the Mongolian short bow. The name Mongolian comes from the root words “han” (meaning bow) and “ol” (meaning loop). Thus, the bow was designed to loop around a neck horizontally instead of vertically like most other bows. The Mongolian is one of the oldest types of archery bows still in use today.
The Mongolian Short Bow (also called the Mongolian recurve) is a common type of recurving composite bow whose major difference from other bows is its length. In fact, the length of a Mongolia bow is much longer than most other bows. This made it ideal for long shots. The Mongolian also features a large drop of the string at the cuffs, compared to other recurving types that feature a shorter drop. This gives the Mongolia an extremely snappy release.
Unlike many other bows, the Mongolian retains its weight even on a full-pull. This characteristic allows it to be used in both military and civilian use. While in combat, the Mongols would shoot a series of shots while holding the bow with an archer’s fingers, the same technique can be used in a more relaxed stance or when pulling back the bow slowly. The bowman could then release the bow quickly, allowing the shooter to have maximum accuracy.
Today, most modern bows are made from either carbon or fiberglass. Carbon fiber material is light and inexpensive, but has less vibration and greater stability than fiberglass. Because the Mongolia is primarily used as a hunting bow, it is mostly made from carbon and is lighter and stronger. However, this does not undermine its ability to be used for military use due to its excellent balance and accuracy.
Like other good bows of this type, the mongolia’s arbor is designed to allow the “quick draw” mechanism to operate smoothly. Unlike other recurving bows, this one features a free standing arbor that allows for a quick release of the string after each draw. This feature is important as it allows the user to shoot without worrying about excess vibration caused by the draw string.
While there are many different models of the Mongolia bow, the most famous and widely sold is the models that feature a short bow’s arbor and a fully functional cross bow. These two features work together to allow users to increase their shooting range and accuracy. Most models of the bow feature a maximum draw distance of around 47 inches, which means that they are very accurate when shooting prey that is far away. Some models, however, have been known to feature a much longer maximum draw distance of around 62 inches. The cross bow, meanwhile, can be adjusted between three different heights. This height allows for an increased level of shooting accuracy and effectiveness.
Other models of this type of bow feature an enlarged cross bow and include a handguard and a more robust butt-stock. Some models also feature a handguard mounted on the inside of the bow’s arbor. There are also some Mongolia bows that do not feature a butt stock. These bows, called flatbow, have been popular among those who prefer cross bows due to their increased accuracy and ease of storage and use.
In terms of quality, all Mongolian bows are made from high quality carbon fiber. However, some manufacturers specialize in producing bows with a more advanced and rugged metal cross-barrel that are capable of handling tougher and denser cross bows. In addition, manufacturers of these kinds of bows may feature a hand-polishing procedure to increase the life span of the archery equipment. While the jury is still out on which type of bow is best for archery, the experts have spoken and they agree: the Mongolia bow!
