I will give you all the information you need to know below:


What It Feels Like To Shoot With The Samick Sage:

Pure awesomeness!

Wooden recurve bows are often underestimated. But the Samick Sage will make everyone smile who has the chance to shoot with it.
You will quickly realize that you have a super accurate bow in your hands.
Arrow after arrow will find its target.

Check out the reviews and the Q&A here.


The Outstanding Bow Quality

The riser of this bow is made of Hard Maple and Olive Dymondwood.
The combination of these wood types gives the riser both a great look and highest durability.
You can use it for many years.
It also feels great. Very smooth but durable.

The limbs are made of Maple, too. Additionally, they are enforced with black fiberglass.
Fiberglass is often used for bows because it is very strong even when it is only very thin.

The high durability of the riser and limbs make the Samick Sage perfect for beginners who don’t want to buy a new bow quickly.
You can keep shooting it as long as you like the bow.

The included B50 bow string is also very good.
Treat it with bow string wax regularly and you won’t need a new one too early.


Advantages Of A Takedown Bow

Getting a takedown bow has big advantages.
When you remove the limbs from the bow you can store or transport it much easier.
Many bow cases are specially designed for takedown bows and your bow will fit in one of those cases perfectly.

Another advantage is, that you can change the draw weight easily.
All you have to do is get some stronger limbs and replace them with the old limbs.

You don’t even need a tool to take off the limbs.
It can be done easily by hand.

Read the included instructions to make sure you get it right.

The Samick Sage Is Ready To Upgrade

The Samick Sage Recurve Bow has already bushings in place.
With those, you can upgrade your bow easily.
Do you want a real bow sight, a stabilizer or maybe a bow quiver?

No problem. Get and install them quickly to bring your bow to the next level.

Of course, you can also tune your bow even further.
Maybe you find that your bow is too loud.
In that case, you can equip it with some bow string silencers.

You also might want to get a real arrow rest for your bow.
While I personally like shooting from an arrow shelf, others might don’t like it that much.
Arrow rests are cheap, fortunately.
I will review a few arrow rests soon and link to them here.
Stay tuned for that.


My Experience With The Samick Sage

Even though I have been shooting for way over 10 years, I still love shooting a Samick Sage when I am not shooting my longbow.
It has a great smooth draw, release and is very accurate.
The riser fits great into the hand and the hand shock is also only minimal.

It is just a great recurve bow.

I love its look and the feeling when I shoot with it!

Watch the video below to see how to assemble the bow correctly:

I highly recommend using a bow stringer like it is used in the video.
It is the safest way to string a bow.


Summary And Rating: The Samick Sage Is Great!

Moritz ImageThe Samick Sage Takedown Recurve Bow is a fantastic bow for beginners or advanced archers.
There is a reason why it is so popular amongst beginners.

It is very much affordable but off highest quality.
I doubt that you can find a recurve bow with similar efficiency and accuracy for that price.

Whether it is for you or for a friend – maybe a Christmas gift – this bow will not disappoint.

UPDATE, June 2017:

The Samick Sage is still one of the best bows of its class.
There is, however, a bow that many call the Samick Sage 2.0.
The Spyder Takedown Bow is the improved version of the Samick Sage and I recommend everyone to check it out here.
