OK OK OK OK . This is my review of the SAS Pioneer Long Bow 45 LBS. First, I went to Cabela and shot a 45 LB Frontier long bow and a 55 lb Bear Montana. (two ends of the cost spectrum for production bows) So those are my only long bows as a benchmark to judge the 45 lb SAS pioneer I bought on line at amazon.com.
While shooting the two at Cabalas (bear and fronteersman), I noticed the bear was more of a long bow traditional shape with a narrower but thicker riser, (and it had more hand shock compared to the frontier albeit 45 vs 55 pound bear). I shoot a 50LB Bear recurve and found the 55 LB Montana easier to draw. The frontier was wider and thinner like as if it was a recurve bow that had only a slight decurve-recurve. The Pioneer I bought was almost a replica of the Frontier as far as limb thickness and shape. It is less wide and slightly thicker than the recurve limbs of my grizzly. But imagine a bear grizzle w/o the recurve and more taper in width to the end. That is the frontier and the SAS Pioneer, a slightly de-flex/reflex bow.
Having shot the pioneer and frontiersman both in 45#, 6 is one half a dozen it the other. Get which is the best deal.
So if you want a traditional / historical correct longbow, pass this by. It doesn’t have the “D” shaped limbs.
However if you want a good shooting “Longbow” this is it, so is the frontier. I have been shooting a 50 LB bear Grizzly for 35 years and a 35 lb samick sage for a couple years.(back surgery). This 45 # pioneer shoots consistent and good. 10 to 22 yards trajectory like a line drive (450 grain total weight arrows w/feathers). Small twang but I haven’t added any silencers 7.5 inch brace height.
Only downside is the PLEATHER wrap of the grip. I removed it. It was slack and I did much better w/o it on the grip. The bow slid around it when I released. It was not glued to the riser as the bow rotated counterclockwise when I shot. Sent my arrows to the left. (Right hand shooter).
The nocks are well made, smooth, and require no sanding like reviews of the OMP Ozark hunter comment on that bows reviews. BOTTOM LINE: THIS BOW SHOOTS WONDERFULLY. If you want a traditional D shaped long bow. This ain’t it. If you want a good shooting longbow for a good price this is it. I think the Cabela’s frontier is equivalent having shot both in 45 #. Get the best price.
Now I have had my Bear grizzly recurve for 35 years (50#). I got it at a yard sale for $20 in 1983. (best bow in the free world). So I really wanted a Bear product. But when I shot the frontiersman and the Montana. I was more accurate with the frontiersman. The bear Montana is more of a traditional longbow riser shape. But it is 2x the price. Will the SAS last me 35 years like my Bear Grizzly? I’m 53, it doesn’t have to.
