Southwest Takedown Recurve Bow Product Review

Many archers claim that the Spyder is an improved version of the Samick Sage, and I am inclined to agree. Heavily inspired by the Sage, Southwest Archery has boosted the quality of the riser and made other subtle improvements too.

The grip profile is slightly different in comparison to the Sage’s, with many user’s conveying their pleasure at how comfortable it remained after long periods of use. Nearly all draw weights come with the appropriate stringer tool, with limbs available in weights from #20 – #60 providing all the necessary stopping power.

Inset bushings are pre-installed into the riser should you want to use accessories with this model. It is worth noting that, as a downside for survival applications, the Spyder is easy to assemble but requires a hex key for the bolts.

While I would typically champion survival bows not necessitating extra tools, as they are easily lost, the Spyder is so good that I would rather have additional hex keys in my kit list.
