Southwest Archery Spyder Takedown Recurve Bow Product Review

The Spyder comes in at a similar price point as the Sage for higher draw models, with the lower draw models being slightly more expensive. Some users mention that they consider the Spyder to be an improved upon version of the Sage, and it’s easy to see why.

Similar in design, the Spyder appears to have a better-developed riser than the Sage, and the overall weight is reduced. Draw weights are available between #20 and #60, and limbs can be upgraded.

I would say, however, that the downsides noticed are a lack of bowstringing tool as standard, and that you will require a tool to disassemble and reassemble the bow.

With that being said, the Spyder is still a great bow for beginners looking for a slight upgrade on typical low-quality beginner bows.
