Which actually brings up the nasty problem of Bow type being more correlated to ST Requirement than Dmg.

You can't have a ST17 Yew warbow, before the bow is too awkward to handle for a medium sized characters. Since bow mass and material corresponds to the ability of the material to hold an amount of force one can mend the excess damage of Thr+3 to Thr+2 and just redistribute the bow strength.

up to...
Yew Bow ST11, 2lbs
Yew Warbow ST13, 3lbs
Laminate Warbow ST14, 4lbs
Composite Bow ST15, 4lbs
Composite Warbow ST17, 6lbs
