Samick Bows
« on: March 24, 2004, 11:40:00 PM »
I own and shoot 3 of these bows, The Hawkeye, Deerslayer and the Spirit II. I bought the hawkeye on a whim and it is a real shooter. I was so impressed that I bought a Deerslayer and it was a shooter. What really impressed me most was the cost. These replicas are a very good copy of some of our most famous designs. They will not replace a fine custom bow, but for the person who would like to give the old way a go, with out the big expense, they are fine. Most people can't believe the cost of these bows. I have decided to carry the line. Again there is nothing better than a fine custom bow, sometimes the cost can keep a person from owning one up front.  Having a great bow to start with is also important. Samick is one of these.

The warranty policy is 100% first year and a degrading liability of no less than than 50% replacement cost for life of bow. with sales receipt. Fair enought I think. Thank's for asking.

I am interested in buying my first traditional bow. I am interested in a takedown. I like the looks of the Spirit II, it is a takedown right (guessing by how the limbs attach)?
Which do you think would a better choice for a first recurve, the PSE Kudu or Samick Spirit II?
I currently shoot a 70lb compound with 65% letoff everyday after school for at least an hour. Would a 55lb bow be ok?
Thanks

The spirit II is no less the bow than the Kudo- I like the Deerslayer for the money a great bow. I offer popular pricing on the Samick line and can get a bow to you in a couple of weeks or less. The deer slayer is a very fast bow with the looks and feel of a much more expensive bow. Please be carefull ordering which ever bow you decide on-- A guy shooting a 70# compound bow can have problems with a 55# traditional bow. I like 45/50# bows - they are esay to shoot and will take anything you want to take. I also would like to say that the Spirit is a nice bow with good looks and the price to go with it. I hope I have helped. Scott

Thank you for all of the information  :) . I will not be buying a bow for a couple of months ($). I went to your sight, I agree that you do offer great prices. Once I get money I will probly buy from you.

Would GoldTip Hunter 5575 be a good arrow choice?

What point weight would be good?

Thanks

I am more into wood- but the gold tip 55/75 would be alright if you get a 55/60 bow. If you don't pull over 28/29" with recurve you will be in 35/55# range-- Traditional bows need some arrow bend to shoot good. If you go with higher spine - you will need extra weight added to carbon. Let me know.

If I went with the 5575's, 50lb bow, 28.5" draw, what weight would be needed to get the correct spine?

If the bow is a 55# - I would say you would need 125-150gr tip maybe more. It will have to be trial and error. In my way of thinking a 55# bow will be on the line for spine with the gold tip. You would certainly have a fast bow. I have shot gold tips and they are as good as any, better than a lot.

I agree that the Samick bows are very good shooters,  I bought a 55#Samick Hawkeye and was very impressed. It was just a bit heavy for me so i bought a 50# Hawkeye because i liked them so much.  The 55 is brand new in the box for sale or trade now.  hisguzzi@yahoo.com  I am keeping the 50#.  Great bows as far as far as i am concerned and much better than some of my higher priced models.

The Verna on your site looks like the AIM Viper, is it the same bow? I am impressed with the reports I've seen.
Thanks,
Gene

Just picked up a 45# hawkeye for my older son and a new 40# redstag for my younger son. Adding a Big Jim strap on quiver to each. If they shoot half as good as they lQQk they gonna be two happy boys.

Another good Samick is the Samick Lightning, which was my starter bow! Don't regret that for a sec!  :)
