      Wanting to get a 40# bow for the kids.Checked out the used bows on ebay and it seems that the used bows are getting expensive.I bought a ben Pearson 50# gamester that was in beautiful shape 4 years ago for $58.00.Now the cracked, twisted junk is selling for more.I started them on a Bear golden bear 30#. Now their shooting my Pearson cougar and gamester 50# bows but its a little to much.I want something they can work up to the 50#’s.Just wanting some input on the sage before I commit to buy.

      After reading many comments throughout this site and another when my brother-in-law was ready to buy his first Trad bow I recommended the Samick . His is 50# and really is a fine shooter. Smooth, fast , easy to tune and get quiet. I want one too.

      All I can say is please buy American made products.

      Samick is a world renowned maker of bows and limbs making some of the very best ILF limbs in the world. It is a Korean manufacturer that has been making bows and components for a long time. In fact many US bow companies have had certain bows in their lineups made by Samick and sold under their US name. The Sage design has been sold under the Hoyt and PSE names and there may be others. I have a Hoyt Huntmaster that is the same bow as a Samick Sage and it is 21 years old and it is sill one of my keepers. I was unaware when I bought it that it was a foreign made bow but I doubt that knowledge would have kept me from buying it as it was affordable. As far as I’m concerned it is a good purchase regardless of where it was made. Like it or not, we are inundated with goods and products that were not made here. It’s the world we live in now. That computer you used to make your post, yep it has foreign parts in it too.

      I bought one for my neph. We went to a dealer in Canon City, Co. Neph. wanted a 55# after shooting my bows. The one in stock was a left hand bow. They had a right hand in 45#, but the Neph. is a big kid. I asked the dealer to switch out the limbs to the right hand riser, no problem he said. After shooting the reconfigured bow by both of us, I bought it for him. Same price, great service,even used the same string. The bow is smooth, and extra limbs are easy to get. 3 rivers has them for around $80.00 i believe. One riser + many choices in poundage, = a great bow for kids, and adults.

      By the way,,,Thanks Bob.

      I have had a Sage for years and love it. I have the 45# limbs along with the 35# limbs and just ordered the 40# to hunt with. You can’t go wrong with the Sage.

      My wife and I both have Samick Sage’s. Between us we have 2 risers and 4 sets of limbs ranging from 30-60#. They’re a decent bow and I reckon perfect for your application of introducing your kids to a full size bow and allowing growth in draw weights at a minimal cost.

      My one big tip would be to buy a decent string when you get it as the one it comes with it is very ordinary.
