Which bow has the fastest draw speed? I looked at wiki, but it doesn't tell you what the numbers mean. Does it mean arrows per second or time it takes to full draw? Who knows; that's why I like the way the Fallout series did their wiki. It's put together better and it explains itself. It also tells you where items can be found. I wish the elderscrolls wiki did.

The ones in vanilla are indeed based on weight. Longbow and Hunters draw very quickly.
Additionally, the quick shot perk is kinda borked (sorta). It DOES improve shot time though. Either way, it's 30%... so no matter what the bows are still the same speed in relation to each other. Also, PS3 here, so no zephyr just yet. :(
Anyway, the numbers on there are kinda wierd. What it boils down to though, is that it takes about 3 full seconds to nock and draw a daedric bow, and about 1 to nock and draw a BBow. The other bows fall somewhere in the middle.
In addition to draw speed, "range" is also affected by weight. More specifically, the firing arc. Heavier bows have a longer arc, meaning they shoot much further much straighter. They are much easier to fire long distances.
I'm a great shot with a BBow, and I've got a lot of trouble hitting things 75+ meters out. Especially things like skeevers wolves etc. The eagle eye perk helps with this (sorta).
With a daedric I can bullseye a womprat in beggar's canyon. From Hoth. = )

Agreed completely. This one, however, has far too much "established lore" to consider things on a game by game basis. If you're looking for the best helmet, well, what all pages have items?
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Armor http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Clothing http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Quest_Items even has some http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Specialty_Gear likely might http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Generic_Magic_Apparel to see if the generic enchantments are good http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Leveled_Items http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Unique_Items http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Artifacts since for whatever reason they need a separate page for lore-related items. Obviously with the loot system, you need to separate uniques from gear with random enchantments. Unfortunately, Specialty Gear for example, bah, all of them are just pointless. Put all of them on Unique Items instead of keeping the same layout for all Elder Scrolls games regardless of lore-related distinctions. http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Items#Articles_on_Item_Materials you also need to go here, just to see if you can make better http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Enchanting_Effects also here to see if you can enchant better...
and then you need to look up extents for crafting items, levels you can craft them to, and with enough knowledge in the game you may be able to determine whether or not you have indeed found the best helmet, if you can craft better, enchant better, anything.
