If you think glass does all the work build a bow with Aboo cores. Build another with Yew edge grain cores everything the same except the cores and see witch one performs better.

So clear glass and 2 veneers and 2 cores is =4+2 glass=6
A unglued stack is not stiff until it is glued.
laminated beams for homes are better.
So 1 more lam is not going to hurt anything.

I know red elm cores are faster than walnut and maple cores.

Red elm edge grain is very good core. I have a big slab of it myself. I dont know that it would too much faster than maple. Walnut maybe. The yew is pretty stiff.

I run 4-5 cores on all longbows.  I say this because the veneers are part of the core.  The core is everything between the glass.  2 veneers, 2 tapered lams and sometimes an additional parallel.

I’m sure your plans you refer too mean 5 cores, including any veneers.  Surely you wouldn’t have 2 veneers and 5 additional core lams :dunno:

BTW I have noticed no difference between a bow with few thicker lams and a bow with more thinner ones.  All else being equal.   Nowadays I use more thinner ones as I feel it is more durable.
