A contribution of the Mongols to ancient archery was the “string bridge”. This is much like a guitar bridge located at the corner of the syhas. It holds the string in place when at rest and allows the tips of the bow to bend forward beyond the line defined by the string. This gives an extra “snap” to the arrow and a slightly different feel to the bow. Measuring 57 inches tall both unstrung and strung with a 55 inch string. Weighs 1 lb. 11 oz. They do not start to stack until 32 inches. Archers over 6 feet tall prefer this bow's feel over the Magyar Sport.
