Laminated Bow
Common Construction: Strips of different types of wood glued together

The term laminated bow refers to a bow's construction rather than its shape. Laminated bows are made of several strips of different types of wood glued together. Each wood is specifically chosen to provide additional tension or compression, which allows the bow to store more energy than a similarly sized self bow. As a result, laminated bows are typically smaller and better suited for use on horseback. However, they are less durable and deteriorate quickly in high humidity or when exposed to water.
