Watch An Archer Fire Arrows That Change Direction In Mid-Air

Archers of myth and legend were able to do some incredible tricks with their arrows, such as splitting another arrow in half or shooting an arrow so it changes direction in mid-air, tricks that few real life archers are able to replicate.

But Lars Andersen has some mythical-level archery skills, and he's trying to get the bards to write tales about him by proving he has mastered the art of the turning arrows.

In this incredible video Lars Andersen demonstrates how arrow direction can be manipulated to pull off archery feats that seem impossible but Lars finds to be "quite easy", claiming "all experienced archers should easily be able to learn this". Looks crazy difficult to me!

After lots of YouTube research, it is a combination of notch placement on the sinew and angle of the bow. Heavy tips improve the action. Firing over a wall and making the arrow drop quickly is similar to throwing a to fade route in football.
