Upon receiving the 45# Sage I visually inspected it. The limbs were excellent and the riser was ok, with only a couple draw backs – blocky looking and skimpy finish, this however is not a problem for me.
I assembled the bow and checked the brace height which was 7" - perfect, and the pockets were very tight. I then put a straight edge down along the pockets and found them to be spot on straight. I then checked the tiller and it showed -1/16" bottom tiller – excellent. I then grabbed a tiller stick that I had on hand and put it in drawing the bow about 18" and checked limb straightness – perfect, straight as an arrow, no sanding the sides of the limbs to get them straight. The riser is laminated with about 16 laminations – this makes the riser extremely strong – no worries about this riser ever breaking, bending or twisting. This should make it at least as strong as a magnesium riser and much stronger than a single piece of wood.
I knocked the string 1/2" and took a 2413, 2312, 2213 and a carbon 6075 – the carbon having vanes and not feathers. I set up a target and whoa – it shot all of them very well – this tells me that the deflex riser is very forgiving and this bow is going to be a breeze to tune. It has a nice smooth, progressive draw and is very quick with no objectionable noise – a distinct twang to it. Some puff balls in the string and now just a "swoosh". To say the least I was "drop jawed". "What a great shooting bow for only a few bucks" I noticed no fishtail or porpoise to the arrow flight with any of the aforementioned arrows with only a slight kick-out with the vanes. It is a real pleasure to watch an arrow fly off the riser straight and fly straight to the target, without developing any hebie-jebies along the way. I might note here that this 45# bow on my scales shows 45# at 28" and 54# at my 31 inch draw length.
Over the next 24 hours I had to twist the string several occasions to maintain the 7" brace height – after sitting for over 30 hours in a strung condition it has finally stopped stretching and it took 40 turns in the string...
The next day I decided to see what this bow could do – I mounted a front sight and took a mechanical release and used the 2413 with 4" feathers – no rear sight and I didn't bring a range of tip weights. With a 4-5 shots I adjusted the sight to be close to bulls-eye. From 20 yards this bow grouped 12 shots in a 5" circle with 4 shots in a 2.5" bulls-eye. Wow – with some bow tuning, arrow tuning and sight adjustment this thing is going to be a nail driver. As it sits with 5" group it is just about ready for hunting season – by the way, the 5" group is shooter error and not bow error. At full draw holding 54# only gives me a bout 2 seconds to find and get on bull – then I develop what some might consider the "DT's", I am only used to holding about 28# from my compound.
The next day I took the bow apart and took it to my shop and with a drum sander and also hand sanding I took all the hard edges out and smoothed them into gentle curves. With 4-5 coats of clear gloss Lacquer the bow looks like a bow costing much, much more.
I highly recommend this bow for all levels it is a very accurate, forgiving and fast bow. For the advanced/expert, which I consider myself to be – it will definitely put a smile on your face and leave you with the same "drop-jaw" amazement. For the intermediate, this bow will enhance your shooting fun and will definitely assist you in your progression. For the beginner, this bow is so forgiving that you will be shooting above your level, even if you know little about the tuning process and happen to be a little off.
I have owned 50-60 compound bows, 7-8 recurve bows, which are down the road, and this one is a keeper, because it shoots so well and is so fun to shoot. I have never hunted with a recurve because I didn't feel that any were accurate or fast enough – this year the Sage is going hunting.

WARNING. This is just a warning for high draw weight users.

These bows are not designed (in my experience, and the opinion of my bow shop) to be powerful 55lbs and over bows. I've used the Sage for a few years now regularly, and while the light poundage versions are fine, the heavy ones are trouble.

My 60lb has fractured and split 3 limbs now, none from misuse or improper string / tuning, and my riser finally cracked when I pulled back with a new string.

Just a poor quality wood / design. Poor finish and weak fiberglass. These limbs are only held on the riser by a bolt, and with all that weight, they WILL crack at some point from regular use. Since these are not ILF limbs, it will eventually be impossible (and expensive) to find replacement limbs, as it has been for me.

I took it back to the retailer and they STOPPED selling this model (Sage), and are now only selling the lighter (white limbed) models that are 35lbs and under. I send the limbs back on warranty, and they sent me a cheap, scuffed up pair that were nothing like the originals, and seem a lot weaker.

I assume they got wise to the failings of these high poundage models and are now recalling them. You get what you pay for though.

If you want a cheap bow to play with for awhile, go for it, but if you want a serious tool to use and keep for years, I would highly suggest investing in something stronger.

I have not had this problem with other take down bows, so I don't believe it's a design flaw universally.

    Comments about Samick Sage 62" Takedown Recurve Bow:

    After a break of 25 years, it was time to get back into archery, along with my 5 1/2 year old son.
    The Samick Sage is an excellent bow, for the price.
    The bottom limb bolt was a little stiff to instal, and the finish one one limb is a little rough.
    This is not really a complaint.
    I think I got a lot more than I paid for with this bow.
    Worth every penny, easy to handle, fun to shoot, and can be accessorized if required.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Fast delivery.
    Shipping cost was less than expected.

        Received my 50# sage yesterday, set up was a piece of cake and the bow is a dream to use, I bought some high plains Hunter arrows with my Bow and the sage sends them down range at some impressive speed! All in all, this Bow coupled with some good arrows is an absolute beast, I can't wait to go hunting with the sage.

            So far I've only shot about 100 arrows on this bow, but every time the arrow has gone perfectly straight and with incredible power. The draw weight is a little heavier than i'm used to, but that with straighten itself out as I continue to shoot the bow.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I was amazed with the service I received from 3rivers, I placed my order, which consisted of a shooting glove, wrist cover, the Samick Sage recurve, silencers, and arrows on Tuesday and received everything in one box that Friday, with standard shipping! Now this might not always be the case, but I was extremely impressed. On top of this, customer service was great in helping me choose the correct spine and grain weight for my arrows, and any other miscellaneous questions I had. Overall, Great Service!

              i bought the 50 lb version to hunt with, target practice and knock a few stumps here and there. this bow is perfect for all of the above. i added the fast flight string as well as the bear hair rest and the string silencers. with all the add ons this bow is amazingly quiet and shoots smoothly. the fit and finish is what you would expect from a much more expensive bow. i have been using this bow for about 6 months now and my compound no longer sees the light of day. hunting season is here and after a few hunts i couldnt be happier with it. for the money there is no better bow for beginner or advanced shooters.

I have been archery hunting with compounds for 27 years. This bow feels awesome in hand, I don't believe you could do any better at this price!

                      This is my first true recurve. I have been using a PSE recurve for bowfishing the past few years and i would occasionally target shoot with it.i loved the feeling of shooting fingers and no sights so i pulled the trigger on the sage! This thing is night and day compared to the pse kingfisher. Its light, draws smooth, minimal stacking at my 29in draw, and its very accurate. do yourself a favor and upgrade to the flemish fast flight string and get the bear hair rest and plate. I added string leeches and this bow is dead quiet. ive been shooting it every day for about 3 wks now and its holding up great. Finish was not the best but i didnt expect much for a $ bow. I got the 50# limbs and also ordered a half dozen High Planes Hunter Carbon arrows from 3rivers as well. After a nock set these arrows flew true in the 400 Spine. No need for tuning i highly recommend those as well. im done with compound this is my new hunting bow!
