After reading the rave reviews on this longbow, I decided to purchase the Montana. Finding one in a 55# was a little difficult because everyone seemed to be sold out of this poundage. Because I needed to pick one up before a hunting trip and still have time to dial in the tuning before the trip, I was forced to buy one at Bass pro and NOT the best place to buy anything that has anything to do with traditional bows. I purchased the bow and went thru the tuning process, which was quite easy. But when I removed the ugly (in my opinion) black leather grip to install a "sure grip" (from 3Rivers) I realized that there were gaps in the laminate on the grip portion of the bow. the stock grip hid this defect. It seems quality control was out to lunch that day. The bow was nice to shoot, and did tune well out of the box, but I expect a little more quality when purchasing a bow, ecspecialy from a company like Bear. They did offer to replace the bow, but there would have been a 3-4 week wait, so I returned it to bass pro.(who knows nothing about traditional bows by the way) Stick to the best when buying a bow.........3Rivers and trust me, they have the best customer service in traditional bows and equip that you will find, Hands down. PS... I'm saving up for a tomahawk longbow....

    Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

    I bought my Montana in 1998. I shot SCA tourneys in California with it. Now I hunt with it in Wisconsin. Same great bow. Smooth, no stacking very little hand shock. I have never even considered another bow.

    Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

    Excellent craftsmanship, quiet and accurate are the best words to describe the Montana bow. I ended up removing the leather grip and replacing the rest. I'm going to pass a tip along. If you are starting out and plan buying/shooting high poundage bow, buy a lower poundage bow and you will better gain and improve technique. I shoot a 75lb. compound. I shoot a 55lb. recurve. And now I shoot a 45lb. Montana. Easier to shoot, less fatigue, and now my accuracy has improved tenfold. You can never go wrong with a Bear!!

    Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

    I bought this bow on a whim at --- for $ in the clearance aisle. I soon learned #55 was a little to much bow for me. I traded it for a #50 model, and wow!Very smooth and quiet, and once I got in the rhythym of things, I was stacking arrows on top of one another.The worm really turned for me, and I convinced myself I needed a custom. I sold the Montana to fund the custom, and have to admit, I may have made a mistake. The custom D/R Hybrid I got was faster, but I shot the Montana much better. What good is speed if you cant hit the mark, right?Im experimenting with recurves right now, but another Montana may be in my future.

            Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

            I ordered a 40# Montana after a lot of research. So far I am very happy with it. My only concern is that the brace height was nearly 9" at first. It is now 8 5/8" after several hundred shots, leaving it strung overnight a couple of times and untwisting the string some. I'm not sure if there is normal variance in the bow and/or string. I am planning to try another string to see if I can get it in the recommended 7.5-8.5 range. I have a 29.5 draw and have not noticed stacking- but I have limited experience with other bows. It has been very fun getting back into archery after a long (50 year) layoff.

              A beauty from Bear Archery. Classic clean lines, a real pleasure to shoot with no hand shock. Reasonably priced for a quality entry level longbow.

              Superb service from Three Rivers, kept me informed of the process right up to delivery.

              Comments about Bear 64" Montana Longbow:

              This is my second Bear bow. Compared to my Super Kodiak this one is much more difficult to draw and feels a lot heavier than 50# (both my bows are listed at 50# so there is a good comparison). Overall I do love this bow, the bow itself is well made and attractive and is definitely more powerful than the Kodiak. The draw is smooth, but the Super Kodiak recurve is noticeably smoother. All that said, I can shoot this bow better than the Super Kodiak, and it points more naturally with the straighter grip than the contoured grip of the Super Kodiak.

              My "CON" listed as poor construction is not meant for the bow, its for the cheap grip wrap and thin shelf and strike plate material that Bear used on the bow, the material is a double stick backed leather-ish wrap. I have already pulled both off and (unfortunately) right now I am shooting without a grip wrap but did cut and install a bear hair shelf and a better strike plate on the bow (both spares I had for the Super Kodiak). I would far prefer the grip that is on the Tomahawk series that is stitched on the front and not just a tape wrap.

              Overall I give the bow 5 stars, the leather grip wrap 2. I went with 4 stars only because of the grip material and construction.
