I've found that, while it's tough on the hair, adding more tension to the bow can reduce the tendency to bounce. I have a very extreme bounce on the E string because, along with my tremors, there's almost no bow weight on the string. I always know when I don't have enough tension on the bow because it literally skips during the entire bow stroke - chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp... As you grow into the bow you can reduce the tension to get a more lively response.
From what I just experienced with my home trial, I wouldn't give up on those other bows.
Maybe consider giving a bow that you thought was too bouncy or 'beyond your capabilities' when you tried it at that shop - more of a chance for a while at home.
Give yourself a few days or a week trial, if you can - you might really surprise yourself!
