The SAS Courage 60″ Takedown Recurve Bow – Overview
I have to say that this takedown recurve bow is a great bow for beginners and advanced archers.
It is very robust and sturdy. The fiberglass face of the limbs gives the bow some extra protection.
The bow is very forgiving for beginner mistakes which makes it easier to handle and will bring a lot of joy and satisfaction to the archer.
As it is a takedown bow, it is very easy to transport. Assembling the bow is very easy, too. Even if you have never handled a takedown bow before, you will have no problem to assemble this bow.
The bow is 60″ (about 150 cm) long, which is a good length for beginners and advanced archers.
Not too long, not too short.

What You Get For That Price
Please mind that you get what you see on the picture. There are no arrows or any other equipment included.
I recommend adding an arrow rest and a bow stringer to your order, as this will make your life much easier and the bow stringer will protect your bow from damage.
This bow is extremely light (around 3 pounds), so it will not exhaust the archer too quickly and provides an overall delightful experience.
What Is A Takedown Bow?
I love takedown bows because it is so easy to change their draw weight.
The limbs (or arms) of the bow can be taken off and be replaced with stronger or weaker limbs.
So if you have a child who wants to start shooting, but your bow is too strong for it, you can just get a set of new limbs.
That way you will save some serious money because you don’t need to buy a whole new bow every time you need a different draw weight.
The other thing is, that you can transport a takedown bow much easier.
Want to travel and take your bow with you?
No problem with a takedown bow. Just disassemble it and put it in a bow case or sack.
You will need the allen wrench that comes with the bow for that.
If you’d prefer a takedown bow for which you don’t need a wrench, take a look at the Samick Sage Bow.
More Facts About The SAS Courage 60″ Takedown Bow
The bow is rather quiet, which is important for bow hunters, but it is not the quietest one you can buy. To decrease the noise, you can buy some string silencers, but those are only needed if you really go hunting.
If you decide to go hunting please make sure you only hunt small game with a bow below 40 lb draw weight.
The riser has a very nice shape which fits into your hand perfectly. The shape and the light weight make sure that your hand won’t hurt or cramp when you are shooting for a longer time.
Additional Equipment You Should Consider Getting

As I stated above, I think that the SAS Courage 60″ Takedown Bow is perfect for beginners and hunters on a small budget.

Please make sure, that the draw weight suits you, though.
To make sure what draw weight you should get, check out my draw weight guide here.
You can use it for both hunting and target archery. Just remember to maybe get an arrow rest, a bow stringer and arrows of course.
Any type of arrow is fine, just make sure it is long enough for the draw length of 28″.
I would recommend an arrow length of 30″.
