Default bow shopping

I shot several bows this weekend and I need some help. I loved the way the Bear Grizzly felt and drawed until the shot, then it sounded like a guitar string and wanted to jump out of my hand. Is that normal for that bow? I also shot a Martin 200, I didn't like the feel of the handle but it shot really smooth. I shot the Martin Rebel and really liked it but I'm thinking at 52", it might be a little short. Is there any more bows in this $300 range that might be worth looking at? Nobody around here carries any traditional stuff that I know of. I also don't know of any traditional shoots in the Dayton area, thanks.

You could probably find a very good used bow for that cost. Check out the classifieds on tradgang and the leatherwall.

The Checkmates sure look nice but I have not seen one anywhere to try but it seems everybody likes them. I might just have to order one or buy something on the classifieds. It sucks that the only places with traditional bows around here are Bass Pro and Gander and they both have the same limited models to try. They did have the Montana long bow and it didn't seem to bad.
