Hey guys, I'm wanting to know what the difference is in power and speed between a 50# bear grizzly recurve and a 50# bear Montana longbow (NOT reflex/reflex). Thanks in advance!
Thanks for the input longrifle! about ho w much faster would the recurve be? would it be visually noticeable? I don't know why, but speed is a big deal for my bow-egoEven though the Montana is slightly reflexed as a rule the recurve will be a bit faster. It's been my experience that longbows are smoother and easier to shoot.
I just ordered a 14 strand. Would that be pretty close in performance to a 12 strand?Depending on the string you are currently using? Like a factory string?
Going to a 12 strand d97 you will gain that if not a tad more.
Factory strings are over built and usually junk. Just my findings on stock production bows.
Yes, very close difference between 12 strands, and 14 strands...Coodster is probably spot-on with his 10-15 f.p.s. estimate...My question is, why a Bear Montana, vs. some of the other options out there for close to the same money??....Some really nice flatbows/hybrids available for reasonable cost....Take care.......JimI just ordered a 14 strand.
