I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because I also bought the SinoArt bow for comparison. I think the SinoArt is the better value. First, the finish is better. The SAS bow is pictured above. Casting marks are very visible and the paint is uneven. No effect on function, but next to the SinoArt, this SAS looks crude. Also the SinoArit comes complete with everything you'd need to start for only $10 more. If you're in the market for a starter recurve, you may find the SinoArt the better made bow and the better value package.
I really like this bow, it is easy to assemble and seems very sturdy and has strong straight limbs, string is okay for now. I put a $7 arrow rest on using the threaded hole on riser and a couple of nocks on the bowstring. Shoots very well and seems consistent.
To make quieter I (like others) put some soft Velcro on the ends of the limbs where the string hits, and a couple of rubber whisker dudes on the string. Now it is very quiet when the arrow is released. The bow is light weight and fun to shoot. With some practice and maybe a sight installed I will get better. Not bad at 20 yards, hardly any arrow drop with the cheap aluminum arrows (125gr tips) I bought for first tryout. In fact it hits hard enough to stick the target arrows in a pine tree and bend them from the impact, when I miss the target. Oops, need hay bales!!
I plan to get better light weight arrows and keep shooting as the weather gets better.
Bow Looks Pretty-- I bought the red riser bow and it is very nice looking with the white limbs. Very pretty if that matters to you, I have wrapped my whole bow in camo tape and camo -painted the red riser area for hunting. Now it is quiet and stealthy. Can always put back to stock.
I also plan to put a reel, fishing rest, and a fishing arrow for spring carp shooting, I am sure it will work well, plenty of power with a full 30 inch draw.
Hope this helps, great bow for the money. Jeff D. ---
They say you can buy heavier limbs later, but, for me this is enough, (Have no doubt it could take a deer with the right arrows, inside 30 yds range)
I got the version that has 36 lbs limbs and I feel the draw is more than 36 lbs, maybe closer to 50 lbs. You can also purchase limbs in other weights from amazon as well. Just look for the replacement limbs of the SAS Spirit, they both use the same limbs.
I am 5'2" and this bow, at 66", could be considered too big for me. However, my criteria is that if I can string it, I can shoot it. I can indeed string it with the aid of a bow stringer but this will be the limit on length for me. Fortunately I don't think I will even want another bow. The riser is cast and drilled for common accessories such as sight, stabilizer, arrow rest, etc. I added a stick-on arrow rest and finger savers to the string and so far that's all I need or want. Instinctive shooting has improved greatly since I got this bow. Mine likes 30" feather fletched wooden arrows best so far.
The typical accessory screw holes are there, and the bow with its white limbs and white string looks great. You'll need to grab some arrow rests and install a noch before shooting.
