  • Q:

    I have been shooting a Bear Montana, which I loved, but have decided to upgrade to a higher performance, faster longbow. I have 2 questions:
    1. I am buying a Martin Savanah Longbow. It is 50# @28". I have about a 27" draw. I have been using, on the Montana, Easton Legacy Longbow Aluminum 2018 arrows, uncut, with 125gr. Field Tips and 2-blade Magnus Stingers. They workes great for me until I bought a Fast-Flight string, then they started hitting righr of the target...no problem, cut off about 2 inches to stiffen up the shaft. I'm not sure which string comes with the Savannah, but I've heard that my 27" draw length will be faster than it was with the Montana and FF string. Should I still cut off 2" from the arrow to support the higher performance? I've also been looking at getting. FF string for the Savannah and am thinking if the 2018 aluminum arrows are going to be the right fit, wven with juat my 27" draw.
    Also, when measuring brace height, shound it be from grip or middle of rest?

      A:

      I would say that you will find the same arrows will work provided the bows are the same poundage. IF it was me, I would purchase the bow and see if your existing arrows fly true. Brace Height is measured to the deepest part of the grip.

  • Q:

    I'm trying to decide whether to get this bow or the bear ausable. My draw length is 27 1/2 in. if that makes a difference. Which is a better bow?

      A:

      Both of these bows preform well. I personally like the Savannah due to the grip fits my hand better.

  • Q:

    I am five foot and 8 inches talls. What are the advantages of 58, 62 and 64 length bows?
    Asked on 4/2/2014 by Steve from Tennessee

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      A longer bow generally feels easier to pull with less finger pinch due to the string angle when drawn back. With your height, I would recommend the 58" or 62" bow as you will probably get more performance out of the limbs with your shorter draw length.

  • Q:

    I have a 29" draw length will the savannah stack at all, and I currently shoot a bear montana but im looking for a little bit shorter of a bow, will the upgrade to the savannah give me any performance gains as well.
    thanks

    • A:

      I also draw 29" or a bit more. While the force-draw curve might show a hint of stack with the Savannah, I sure can't tell. I love this bow, find it easy to shoot, and fairly fast with my heavy arrows.

      A:

      With a 29 inch draw lenght the Martin Savannah will show some sign of stack. The Savannah will have more performance with the same poundage as the other bow.

  • Q:

    I have a 32&1/2" draw length. (7ft and around 300lbs). Been back and forth between the Savannah and Ausable. Given my long draw and concerns about heavy stacking- which bow would you recommend? I have not shot either. Currently shoot a Mathews MR8 compound at 80lbs. I like the look of the Savannah better but I am willing to compromise for a bow that will be smoother to shoot given my specs. I really appreciate your thoughts and input. Thanks.

    • A:

      First off, note that your draw length with a longbow is likely to be an inch or two less than your draw with a compound. If possible, you might want to try a Savannah and Ausable--some archery retailers offer this service. From the force-draw curves that have been published, both the Savannah (62") and Ausable (64") will stack at 32.5"--if that is truly your longbow draw, then you might look for a 66" bow? Congratulations on taking up the longbow, and good luck!

      A:

      Wow, that is a long draw length. I love my 55 lb Savannah, and can't see myself using anything else.  I talked to a fellow archer who had a custom made Savannah, and his is 65 lb at 26 inches. They told him to not let anyone shoot it who had a draw over 28 inches or they might break the bow. This tells me that there is an upper limit to the weight and draw length of the bow design. I recommend that you contact Martin and explain you situation. My guess is that for you, they would suggest a 50 lb bow that at your draw length would pull around 65 lbs.  Since you are used to a compound, you don't want to over-bow yourself. The muscle groups used for pulling a traditional bow are different in many respects to those used to pull a compound. It is better to go lighter in pull than to injure yourself as I did. A year off of archery was not pleasant. I gave away my 65lb Savannah and purchased a lighter bow. The difference in arrow velocity was only 5 fps, but the bow was much easier to manage. I hope this helps.

      Truthfully I would go with a 66'' bow or your going to get some stacking.

      A:

      I am not familiar with the Ausable and I am certainly no expert when it comes to longbows. The Savannah is an awesome bow, but I will say that there is significant stacking that starts at about 29" draw length on my 50# Savannah. I don't have a problem with this since my draw length is 30". I would have concerns drawing the same bow to 32 & ½" but if you get the 65# bow, maybe it will not stack until 32 inches. One other thing I must add is that it is a very lightweight bow. For someone of your stature and strength, you may not like such as lightweight bow. It will feel like a feather in your hand.

  • Q:

    In the description, it says this bow comes with an owner's manual and a bow stringer. At the bottom of the description, it says the bow does not include a bow stringer.
    Which is correct?

      A:

      I checked a few of the bows that we have in stock and none of them had a stringer. I double checked Martin's website and they do not say anything about a string being included either.

      Mine did come with a stringer.

      Answered on 1/31/2013 by KY Archer from Kentucky
    • A:

      The writer of the product description confused the words "stringer" and "string." My Savannah longbow came with a bowstring, rest, bow sock, and owner's manual.

      Hi. I just measured my Savannah. It measures three inches from my table top to the string knocks when laying on it's belly on my kitchen table.

  • Q:

    i have a bear archery titan youthbow , i have become fairly good with it and i dont want to loose the skill and wanted a bow that shoots the same and is basically shaped the same as my titan , which would you recommend longbow or recurve
    Asked on 7/6/2012 by newby

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The closest to the Titan youth bow will be a longbow. As long as you practice with the new bow you choose, you will develop the same amount of accuracy and may be more.

  • Q:

    What do you use to measure the brace hieght of a bow? And do you need to tune the nock point and if so please give a general rule as to where to begin on a longbow.
    Asked on 5/2/2012 by stickslinger from Macon Ga

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      For both you will want to use a bow square. They make it much easier to measure the brace height and to set the nock point. The nock point will depend on if you are shooting split finger or three under. I recommend starting at 3/8 above center for split finger and 1/2 above center for 3 under. You can adjust from there to get the bow tuned in.
