Is there a definitive 'Best Weapon' for each weapon type in Skyrim?

Inspired by this answer on the "Is there a definitive 'Best Weapon' for each weapon type in Skyrim?" question:

Are there any unique bows whose enchantments make them a better choice than a custom enchanted bow?

    Isn't this question explicitly part of that question? Wouldn't any answers here also belong there? Wouldn't this do better merged with that, as a single weapon guide? I think the answer to all these is yes, but I'm not certain. – disinter Mar 4 '12 at 7:27
  • @disinter I believe I'm asking a different and more specific question (only unique bows' enchantments, specifically). Notice that no answer in that question talked about bows. If you checked out the answer I linked to, it suggested a 'better' question - and my question here is inspired by that. Also, this is not a call for a discussion unlike that question, as mentioned there by Bora. – galacticninja Mar 4 '12 at 7:47

    My answer to that question doesn't mention bows because there aren't any with unique properties that bear mentioning. Just as there are no maces. Aside from some unique considerations regarding weight in the crafting of a custom bow, nothing you'll find in that answer is invalid. – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 4 '12 at 8:14

    @LessPop_MoreFizz I see. I'm not saying your answer there is invalid, though. I thought the people who answered that question just forgot about the bows. =) – galacticninja Mar 4 '12 at 8:35

    @galacticninja I'm one of the close votes. There is nothing about this question that will provide any new or interesting information that is not already found in the other question. It is a duplicate. It's a good duplicate (in the sense that it's the sort we want around for it's google value, and it shouldn't be deleted), but it should still be closed in my opinion. – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 5 '12 at 22:02

Not really, especially if you intend to use the Smithing>Enchanting>Smithing exploit to make an incredible weapon, but the Nightingale Bow does come relatively close. If you're lacking in enchanting or smithing skill, this is a valid option to replace leveling these skills just for that reason.
