I was actually drawing the contradiction between the longbow being renowned for heavy arrows but built with the narrow stiff outer limbs more characteristic of the high efficiency bows of today. Similarly the turkish horn bow with it's exaggerated (although optimized for mass) recurves is renowned for having cast presumably extremely light arrows for thier draw as far as 900 yards if I have not misremembered.
