Southwest Archery Spyder Takedown Recurve Bow Product Review

Southwest Archery released the Spyder as a direct competitor to the Samick Sage, which is generally considered one of the best beginner bows on the market, and it delivers.

Many user’s regard the Spyder as an improvement on an already fantastic model. More than just a little bit inspired by the Samick Sage, Southwest Archery’s Spyder boasts improved riser quality with limbs available in draw weights from #20 – #60.

When purchasing, you will want to ensure that you choose a draw weight option that comes with an included bowstringing tool, to make your life easier when assembling. It should be noted, however, that while some bows can be assembled by hand, you will require a hex key to screw the limbs onto the Spyder.

Inset bushings are pre-installed on the Spyder, allowing for additional accessories to be attached.

All things considered, the Spyder is a great takedown style recurve bow for beginners, with a quality riser that will see you through multiple limb upgrades.
