#1. Yes it was. But it's a pity Lars doesn't want to show us how he does it.
It must be a secret. :|

It seems that Andersen is considered the best archer in the world but doesn't achieve unanimity as an historian :

#2 according to his own comments on the YT video, he "shows" it at 0:43 but it doesn't really show imo. He seems a bit evasive with his answers, not sure whether he is being so on purpose or just is being awkward or something. But i personally can't really get a good grasp on it, something is lacking for me to understand it. I totally understand that it might be possible, but then there has to be something with the arrow that makes it "lean" towards the side you aim. As in example if you have feathers that are angled like the aileron on an airplane, like you do with paper planes as well.

#5 Doesn't seem to have been much practical use for it as you can see how much power the arrow lost in the process. It can barely penetrate a piece of foam. I was thinking more of back in the day when bows were actually used in war and not to show off neat tricks.

#5 but he does. one usually places the arrow in the middle, 90 degrees with the bow/string. he places it at an angle and offset from the center point. this causes the arrow to fly at an angle also. after a while the feathers will start to correct the path and normal flight resumes. i'll give it a try with my bow next time i go shooting :)

#11 yea, but its bad angles, it lasts for 3 seconds, and doesn't say anything about the arrow itself, so its not a good explanation. Its just a short pic of him angling the arrow in a weird way, and a picture with an arrow towards the feathers, but no comment if they are modified. It just doesnt come off clearly
