I was just upgrading my Soulknife to a Soulbow and ran into a query here I thought I'd run past the experts. From the Mind Arrow desciption -

The bolt is identical in all ways (except visually) to an arrow shot from a composite longbow. For instance, a Medium soulbow materializes an arrow that speeds toward the specified target, and if it hits, deals 1d8 points of damage (crit x3) plus extra damage equal to the soulbow's Wisdom modifier.

So here's what I was wondering, did they mean identical to a Composite Longbow for just the range, crit, etc., or did the mean the very crux of the Composite bow, that is, add strength mod? The wisdom bonus is clearly specified as extra damage, so we know it didn't "replace" the Str mod of the Composite. They didn't specify a max Str mod, which may mean it meant the standard +0 Composite, but I just would like to be sure.
