    Nice bow. I have been thinking of getting a recurve for a long time.

    Go for it man!

    This thing is awesome. I love learning new things, especially when it involves shooting any kind of projectile. Coming from a background of shooting nothing but compound bow this is a new world for me. It's an awesome feeling knowing that you can hit what you're aiming at without sights. I love it!

    I'll take some better pic's later on and post them up when I do. After all the 500 has a date set with the camera so its not like I wont have the camera out already.

    The one piece I have no clue what it is, found it at a local sporting goods store for $50. Couldnt see any cracks or anything in the limbs and thought why not. The grip is a little thick imo, I dont enjoy shooting it all that much. The takedown model I got off ebay for $140 shipped, its a 40# Samick Sage and I absolutely love this thing. How much do I love this bow, I shoot at least a dozen arrows almost every day. Ive stood out in the rain, snow and just when the wind is tearing through the my coat. I got this one on the date in the picture(wrong year 2013). I started at 10yds because honestly I had no clue what I was doing and at 20 yards I lost more arrows than I got into the target. Im still learning to shoot this, but Im now back at 20 yards and slowly getting my groups tighter. The only thing about the Sage i wish Id done diffrent is of gone with 50# limbs but 3rivers have them available and fairly cheap.

    edit: Forgot to mention I like the recurves enough Im questioning why I even bought a compound.

    Very nice. Not sure on the $50 bow. So many manufacturers made similar looking bows it's hard to differentiate without some other clues, though the limb tips look a lot like an old Pearson I have.

    If you really want to know there are probably some collectors over at TradGang with bigger knowledge base than I that could probably help id it for you.

    Over the years I've shot a wide range of bows. Some very expensive customs and some mass produced cheapies and the conclusion I've come to is that nothing else matters except finding a bow you love to shoot.

    The 50 dollar bow looks an awful lot like a Martin X200 by Howatt, these bows originally sold for a little over 200 bucks in the mid 90's. They came in two poundages #50 and #60. It's the spitting image of the one I have...

    I got a 40 year old mint conditioned Ben Pearson 45# recurve I'm hunting with on opening day this weekend. I need to finish the bamboo-backed Osage bow I've been dragging my butt on. I'm shooting for 70# on that one.

    I'd love to see some pics!!

    I'm still having some issues with my shoulder and have not been able to practice as much as I would like. It's getting better though so maybe in the late season. I'll be starting off with the xbow this year.
