    I’m looking at getting a new lower end Bow. And I’m thinking a Bear Sonoma or a Samick Sage.

    My Budget is about $200 +/-.

    Any opinions on the Bows listed or suggestions Would Be helpful and much appreciated.

    I just received a U finish longbow from 3 Rivers. $146. The only thing that needs finishing is cutting the arrow shelf, install tips for fast flight, staining the walnut handle and sealer. This is a Belcher product and I was amazed at the quality for the price. Every bit the equal of a Bear Montana at about 1/3 the price.

    Don’t know about the Sonoma, but if its a Bear product it should be just fine. I have a Sage which was $139 and seems to perform as well as my $500 bows. I understand that there were some quality control issues with the Samick line in the past, but I think those problems were resolved.

      I’m still seeing broken risers on some sage bows, seen one on a sonoma as well. So I’m looking for recommendations in my price range, not looking for a longbow.
