I don't have the bow collection that many of you have.  I have two longbows and five recurves.  One bow I didn't have, but have been wanting to try, is a hybrid or reflex/deflex longbow.
A while back, I was browsing the Lancaster Archery site, and came across the Oak Ridge Ash hybrid longbow for $129.99.  It appeared to be the same bow as the Galaxy Black Ridge hybrid longbow that sells for $189.99, and has gotten good reviews.  Seemed like too good a deal to pass up, so I ordered one.
It finally came yesterday.  It looks pretty darn nice, for the price.  If there is any difference between it and the Galaxy, it is probably the finish.  This bow is nicely sanded and stained, but there is very little, if any, finish on it.  Something that is probably easily remedied.  I'm probably just going to put a couple coats of wax on it.
I've only shot a few arrows, but pretty impressed with it's accuracy.  There doesn't seem to be a lot of stacking.  Seems fast enough.
It comes in 25 to 55 pounds.  Maybe a little light for some of you guys, but anyone interested in trying a hybrid longbow without investing a lot of money, this one's worth a look.
