- Oct 28, 2012The Samick Polaris 66 is a great bow, similar to my new Samick Sage, I think the major visible difference is the color/finish of the risers.I've been shooting my new bow at indoor and outdoor practices for the last few weeks, with a set of new arrows made by the local shop, and my scores have already been improving. I had been using a 'loaner' PSE Qptima, which was a very good bow, and using some of our Barony's loaner arrows which made finding a set aim point a challenge. The Optima was great to use, but then the opportunity to use it stopped, and I had a chance to get my LH Samick Sage, and I can't see using another bow. Samick also made the bows used by the Korean National Archery Team at the Olympics this Summer.- Iurii

Subject: [SCA-Archery] Sammy The Wonder Bow
Some months back, I asked for recommendations for a low poundage CA bow, and
someone, I forget who, suggested a Samick 66 Takedown. I ordered one and it
arrived, but I was unable to attend an event until this weekend. It *far*
exceeded any expectations I had. It shot so smoothly I don't even need my
arm guard, so I took it off (I was doing target shooting, not CA). The low
draw weight put no strain whatsoever on my bad shoulder, although by late
afternoon, my left shoulder was just beginning to feel a bit sore. This is
hands down the *BEST* bow I've ever owned!
My longbow, Pegasus, was good, but the string slapped my lower forearm and
wrist so badly, I needed a heavy leather arm guard lined with closed cell
foam to use it.
My crossbow, Trusty, is good, but it has a hair trigger; if you breathe on
this thing, it fires. I lost many arrows, almost shot someone, and broke the
same finger twice with it. It won me two archery tournaments, but....
This Samick 66 Takedown is PERFECT!!!! I've named *her* (my other bows
were/are 'male') Sammy The Wonder Bow.
To the Good Gentle who recommended this bow, you have my undying gratitude;
this is the best bow I've ever owned, or even used.
