If the original Bear quality is in this bow, as prices go an MSRP of $799 is a very good price for a bow of this quality. This bow riser is made of "Dymond Wood" and vacuum impregnated with resins. Being Dymond Wood alone before the resin makes for one tough riser. My 1969 Bear takedown is "Future Wood." which is a plastic and resin impregnated Maple. Additionally, those big butt limbs and the Bear limb clamp locks are still the best design, even today.

As for fit and shootability; hard to beat. In my opinion, the Bear "pistol grip" is the best grip design ever made.

As said; if the original Bear quality is in this bow, you will love the bow and with care it will still be shooting years from now.

I build and shoot my own... and even I don't think they're overpriced or ugly!

Though, I'm not a fan of the Montanna. But for $330, who could really complain?
I once wanted that bow. The dealer advised me that the bow was made for Bear by Ragim, hence, the low price. Never heard that anywhere else before, but I ended up not liking it for other reasons. The price was what attracted me to it in the first place, I guess.

I hadn't had anything against it until my friend Art brought his up. A reflex deflex glass bow that didn't shoot any differently than my selfbows. I was a bit put off by that.

But that's from a builder's perspective. I still give lots of kudos to their recurves:)
