Samick Sage Takedown Recurve, Recommend?

Post by Posted Boy Gallego on Wed Jan 22, 2014 12:58 am

Ok, I am crossing over to the Traditional side. Tight budget, beginner hoping to learn instinctive. Travel in NYC trains/buses so need a takedown to be convenient. Just wanted to check with my traditional hunting brothers before I pull the trigger.

I need to recheck what my draw length is, but lets just say it was 30". Does that mean I can't get a 28" bow or does that mean if I pull back to 30" I get more poundage is all? Total Newb I Know!

Standard draw wt measurement is at 28 inches. When you get into custom bows, you can get a specific weight at your exact draw length.

You are correct 45 @ 28 will be closer to 48ish @ 30. Whatever draw weight you can COMFORTABLY hold for 2-3 seconds at ROCK SOLID FULL DRAW, is what you should use.

When you measure your draw length, check it 3 times, and mark it each time. I'm really simplifying this, but put your thumb knuckle right behind the cartilage of the bottom of the earlobe.

Don't go over 40 pounds, if that's legal to hunt with. Learning proper form is EVERYTHING. I can't stress enough how critical setting up the bow & arrows exactly to you, in the beginning is.

Just fyi bare shaft tuning is completely unnecessary, unless you just want to do it. I say that because we don't hunt with bare shafts, we hunt with finished arrows. To each his own.

You will gets lots of different advice, find what works best for you. Just trying to be helpful. All the best my friend- Dave

Thanks for the info Dave. Going to go to my local pro shop. I got measured a while back but completely forgot it.

Nice thing about this bow is I can buy 35 pounds now and upgrade the limbs cheaply later and still probably be under $200!

I'm not Diesel like you or go to the gym, but I always had good shoulder strength in baseball. I guess I just need to try out a few recurve bows at different pounds and see what I'm capable of. Wouldn't hurt to start at 35 and learn. My wifey loves hunger games so I bet she would want to shoot as well lol.

I got the Samick Sage Takedown. Shot it for the first time today. Wow, what a feeling. What a difference. What a revolution lol. I love instinctive shooting!!!

Started at 20 yards, hit paper but all over the place also. Sneaked my way into the 10 yard rental area and worked on form. At least, what I've been reading and seeing about form. Wish there was in instinctive school here in new york. can't make a big trip out of state to Rick's place.

I ended up getting 40 lbs. I know I know, maybe too much for some to think of starting but I pull it back no issue at all. No shaking or getting tired. Easy pull for me. I got good shoulder strength. Spent years developing the "little" muscles in the shoulders for pitching.

Loving it! Can't wait to go back but its an annoying 1 hour, 2 bus ride.

Good deal man! If 40 feels good to you, then that's great! Strength is relative.

See if there's anything useful for you, in my vid.



If instinctive is what you want to learn, this DVD will help you.

Thanks Dave, Saw it. Btw what arrows are those? I liek the fact that so much of the top is bright flourescent rather than just the arrow. My shop set me up with Easton 2018 Camo Hunters.

Great to see someone getting started and getting good help. Dave is the real deal:) I shot a compound instinctive this season and got frostnip damage on my finger tips. I will shoot release compound in the cold and hopefully trad on the warmer days. anyone have solutions for shotting instinctive in single digits and sub zero weather I am all ears. Happy shooting!
