Thanks.....but I don't think I'm interested in a recurve.

There's probably one out there somewhere, but I've never had my hands on a "cheap" longbow that I thought was a good one. 'Course I've shot lots of very expensive longbows that, for my use, weren't worth $50 to me either.

If you are going to spend $300 on a Montanna, you could put a little bit with it and get a nice (new) bow.

GMMAT - if you can find a pre-ACS Adcock , buy it. Best longbow by far IMO. Boss longbows look good - they're on EBAY from time to time. Rampart makes a nice R/D longbow, so does Horne. Shrew is suppose to be nice, never shot one though.

I'll look tonight and post a list of what bows I see that might tickle your fancy. A Bear I would not go with because I like 3 piece hybrids

I didn't think my Bear was a "bad" shooter, but when I started shooting Cari-Bow Featherhorns, I thought they shot better...

I sent my Montana and my Pearson "Ol' Ben" to Camp Cuervo in Iraq in January...

Just my opinion Raz--obviously some folks like them, because they have been on the market for quite a while. I just absolutely hated the grip, and one guy I shot with in AL (new to the sport) got a huge blister on his hand from his--and that rotten 2x4 grip. That was some time ago, and I haven't even handled one since then.

Thanks.....but I don't think I'm interested in a recurve.
Again, just my opinion, but if that's the case you probably won't care for a 3-piece hybrid. I've shot several, and my first custom bow was one, and now I just don't care for them. Reason being is, to me at least, most of them feel and even look so much like a recurve I really don't see the point--why not just shoot a recurve? I'm not a purist by any means, that's just the way I see it. I shoot a hybrid, but not radical. It still looks and feels and shoots like a longbow, just better.

One thing we'll never run out of in this sport is opinions! lol
