In this article, I am going to take a look at the Spyder Takedown Recurve Bow.
Is it really the Samick Sage 2.0 as many like to say? The Samick Sage is a fantastic recurve bow and one of the most bought takedown bows out there.
Can this be topped? Can a perfect bow be even more perfect?
Read everything you need to know below and choose for yourself:
We always say that the first love is the one you will never forget.
The same is true for your first bow.
My Samick Sage was a true friend and I loved shooting with it.
However, when I was about to get a new Samick Sage I came across another bow.
It was called the “Spyder Takedown Bow“. The description claimed that it was the improved version of the Samick Sage.
This intrigued me and I started doing some research.
What I found made me fall in love with it immediately. I didn’t wait long to get my very own Spyder Takedown Bow.
Before you run off to get this bow for yourself, take a look at what I found out about it:
Name: Spyder Takedown Recurve Bow
Bow Type: Recurve Bow
Draw Weight: 20 – 55 LBS
Draw Length: If your draw length is over 29″, please choose XL-limbs
Bow Length: 62″ or 64″
Available For: Right Hand or Left Hand
Set Includes: Spyder Takedown Recurve Bow, Stringer Tool
Where To Buy: Amazon.com
You know the hard facts now, but let’s talk about what that really means and, most importantly, feels!
First of all, the draw and release of the bow are really smooth. I had great fun shooting with it.
It looks amazing while still having the traditional touch that everybody, who is a traditional archer, will love.
There’s nothing more important than a good grip!
Thanks to several layers of wood, the riser is beautifully colored and fits smoothly in the archer’s hand. Especially the layer of redwood makes it stand out.
It features an arrow shelf, to which you can attach the included arrow rest. That is optional, of course, depending on what feels best to you.
There is a large variety of limbs you can choose from.
That is one of the huge advantages of a takedown bow! With a quality riser, you don’t need to buy a new bow whenever it gets too weak for you. Just get a new set of stronger limbs and you are ready to go!
If you are a beginner, or the bow is for a young archer, you can get some weaker limbs, for example, 20 LBS. If you are a more experienced archer you can get limbs with a draw weight of up to 55 LBS.
That is a lot for a recurve bow. Remember that, unlike with compound bows, there is no let-off here, so you have to pull the whole weight until you let the arrow fly!
The limbs have reinforced tips and can withstand a lot of tension. That is especially important when using a high draw weight, which results in a high arrow speed.
Please don’t forget to get XL limbs if your draw length is over 29″.
The Spyder Takedown Bow is the improved and advanced Samick Sage Takedown Bow.
It does all that the Samick Sage can but brings it to a higher level.
One of the biggest issues of the Samick Sage are the rough edges. Additionally, the grip doesn’t feel comfortable to many archers.
The Spyder was developed with these things in mind and those edges have been rounded and the grip feels great!
The riser simply looks and feels amazing!
For this price, the Spyder Takedown Bow is a fantastic offer.
You will experience very little hand shock.
Your accuracy will be great and if you ever want to increase the draw weight, just change the limbs.
Transportation is also super easy.
Every takedown bow can be disassembled quickly.
I am sure that you are already beginning to understand why I am such a big fan of the Spyder Takedown Bow!
The stinger tool is a string you can use to safely string your bow. If you don’t have a stinger tool and don’t have much experience with a bow, you could break it quickly when trying to string it. The limbs of a recurve bow are rather fragile. So make sure to always use a stringer until you have learned how to safely string a bow without it.
To be honest, I still string my bows with a stinger tool. It is fast and safe!
It is really the Samick Sage 2.0. It has everything the Sage has but with a few improvements.
While the Samick Sage still had some hard edges at the riser and limb pockets, they have been rounded now.
That makes it sleeker, lighter, and way more comfortable to handle.
The whole look and feel is more streamlined thanks to those changes.
The Pros and Cons speak for themselves. I honestly can’t find a reason why you shouldn’t get this fantastic recurve bow.
There are many bows out there, but I always think that simple and more traditional bows outshine all the modern bows.
With the Spyder Takedown Bow at my side, I can enter any archery range proudly.
I surely don’t have to hide or be ashamed of my bow.
It is super accurate and a lot of fun to shoot with.
By the way, if you are a complete beginner and need additional equipment, like a bow case, an arm guard, or some arrows, you could also get the Spyder “Ready To Shoot” complete set instead.
It is the same bow, just with some additional essentials.
Now, that we have taken a real close look at the Spyder Takedown Recurve Bow, I want to know YOUR opinion.
Do you agree with me, that it is the Samick Sage 2.0?
Do you own it or have tried it already?
