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.

    I purchased this bow to shoot in my back yard. I read the reviews of others who had purchased it. I was pretty confident I would be getting a very good bow worth more than what I was paying for it. I was not dissappointed.

        Comments about Samick Sage 62" Takedown Recurve Bow:

        I picked this bow up for my 12 year old daughter as part of her Christmas. I started her out with a PSE silver snake and she really fell in love with archery. When she opened the Sammick Sage she was really excited and as we put it together, I was really impressed with this bow.

        The grip positions the hand comfortably and the 25# limbs with a fast flight string were a perfect fit for my daughter. She has enjoyed shooting it immensely and her accuracy has improved greatly. She's excited to try some small game hunting next fall.

        I highly recommend this bow for a first bow or for the budget conscience.

          Comments about Samick Sage 62" Takedown Recurve Bow:

          It is very easy to change limbs and it gives you the opportunity to have two bows in one for a little over two hundred dollars by ordering another set of limbs in a different pull. I bought mine in 45lb and I hurt my shoulder and I did not want to stop shooting for a while so I ordered limbs in 30lb and I can shoot pain free till my shoulder heals all the way and I can go back to the 45lb.

            It looks and feels durable going to use for target and hunting. If a bear happens to cross my path I know with this bow he is coming home with me. The service at 3 river archery has been top notch well pleased so far with product,bow service, customer service and shipping. Samick Sage take down 62" 45# is going with me in case of a bug out for sure.

              Comments about Samick Sage 62" Takedown Recurve Bow:

              Have been shooting my 60lb Samick Sage for a couple of years now. Have taken deer, hogs, and elk with it. It is more than just a beginner level bow. It is my best shooting bow out of a dozen more expensive recurves. You can spend more money for a pretty finish or a fancy name, but it won't shoot better than the Sage. The ease of changing limbs makes it very versatile. I have been shooting a bow for over 40 years and this is the best value in a recurve bow that I have ever seen. This one is quiet, hard hitting, accurate, and won't hurt your wallet.

                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.
