Testing the longbow simulator

Tod uses a ‘longbow simulator’ and shoots it against Joe Gibbs with his 160lbs longbow.  How do they compare? Are they interchangeable or is it a complete cheat?  What do these arrows look like in slow motion, how fast do they go and how much energy and momentum do they have?  How powerful are they at 10m, how powerful are they at 60m?  These questions are answered.
