I am looking at getting my first longbow and have spotted a couple of longbows in stock that are immediately available. One of them is a three-laminate bow (bamboo, padauk, ipe) and the other is a four-laminate bow (bamboo, padauk, ipe, ipe). For an extra ?50, would the extra laminate be worth it to a complete starter in the longbow world? Both bows are the same weight (48lbs at 28?). Comparatively, what benefit in general (value for money notwithstanding) do multiple laminates have on a bow? My dad?s is five laminates, but I have no idea how that compares to other bows.
