Description: this is actually a slight relex/deflex design bow but i love it anyway. i took a leep of faith and ordered it from hunters friend. the bow it self is great but the service from HF was poor. but ill talk about that later in a post. anyhow there is no noticeable stacking at all with this bow. it is very for giving and literally no hand shock that i can notice. It is a very good looking bow however i think it could do without that bear medallion mounted into the wood. it kind of reminds me of my first BB gun. remember the red ryder with the medallion mounted in the stock. still this is a fantastic bow. it had really forced me to start relearning the importance of proper archery form. SO far the pics are from HF put i will post some of mine when i get some good pictures of it. I added some cat whiskers.

Got it from HF with 8 Easton Axis Traditional arrows (these are the ST type) with 125gr field points. These arrrows were cut to my draw length and tuned to the measured draw weight of the bow. It also came with a shooting glove, arm guard and quiver. Also string silencers.

ProsVery light, super quiet, no stacking, no hand shock.
Consthat damn medallion, cheap leather for hand grip.

Congratulations on the Montana! I've been looking at that bow for a long time. I hope you post your findings if you do some bare shaft testing. I'm curious with how the bow will do in some fine tuning.
