Bear Montana vs Slick Stick

Postby morgancountry » Thu Mar 14, 2019 1:17 pm

I started with a PSE Nighthawk back in December. It’s a great bow and it was great to get my feet wet with and start my addiction. I now want to get a good one piece longbow. I’m between a Bear Montana and a Bodnick Slick Stick. Just curious if anyone has experience with either. They have a Montana at Bass pro I’m going to try to get in my hand and shoot to help with my decision. Thanks for any input you all might have.

I haven't shot either one but I really like the looks of the slick stick. It looks to have a little more forward riser design. I seem to shoot the forward riser deign better than the more traditional riser like the bear. I am sure that is just a personal preference by me. Either would be a fine choice.

I haven't shot either one but remember when you shoot one of the shelf in the store, it may not be at the best brace height for the least amount of hand shock.

Not tried either of those. If they have a Martin Savanna, try that one too.
