This is the best longbow for the money , and also the best selling longbow by Martin Archery. This product will cost you more than $500 , but the price is not what makes it standout. The features & manufacturer’s reputation are the driving force that makes it the product to beat.
Why is it the best? : Unlike other longbows , the Martin Archery Savannah comes with “No Hand Shock” which eliminates the vibration (“Shock”) that occurs after shooting.

2. BEAR ARCHERY MONTANA REVIEW- THE SECOND BEST :
Second on the list is Bear Archery Montana , one of the oldest and most popular Longbows on the market. Launched in the 1990’s , Bear Montana was designed by Grant Neil Byce II , a long time bowyer at Bear Archery. Its reflexed design , tapered limb lamination, leather grip, and slim tips makes it one of the best longbow on the market.
Why is it second on the list ? : We found out that the draw weight is a little difficult to pull , which is unlike other longbows , especially the Martin Archery Savanna with one of the easiest pull.
Benefits of this Longbow :
Future Wood :
Bear Archery introduced Future Wood in the 1970’s due to request from customers wanting natural hardwood.
Futurewood is made of a pressurized vacuum which fills all the natural pores in the wood, increasing its weight and greatly strengthening it. This makes it very difficult for the longbow to crack or break.
Easy To Use :
This longbow is built for both Experts & Beginners and can be used with both Right and Left hands.
Very Comfortable :
If you care a lot about comfortabiity , the the Bear Montana is a perfect match. Its Maple wood and fiberglass helps protect the limbs , ensuring a more firm grip and comfortability.
