Why Do Arrows Bend? Watch and Learn!

The popular television show “Mythbusters” has covered it, and people who see slow-motion archery videos wonder about it. Do arrows really bend in mid-air, and if so, why?

An arrow bends during its flight toward the target – according to World Archery, it’s not as straight as it looks in real time. Top archer Lexi Keller explains why “archer’s paradox” occurs, and its effect on the arrow, and on how archers shoot. Video produced in partnership with World Archery.

Horseback Archery Ain’t No Joke!
