Bear's Montana was introduced in the late 90's, but despite its more recent introduction compared to other longstanding Bear bows, it gained popularity swiftly.
The bow's design is simple but functional. Made with Gray Hardrock Maple FutureWood with clear White Maple. Although it is not the fastest bow, the compact riser section allows for proportionately long limbs and a smooth, even draw up to 29"+.
If you're seeking a good quality U.S.A. made longbow to get started with, the Montana is worthy of consideration.
