Just received this today, took it out and tried it. First, I have a Samick Sage (who doesn??t?) and love it! This bow shoots as well and equal to my Sage. One is not better than the other in shooting. However, this bow is lighter and a bit less bulky. Also one gripe I had w the Sage, is that the handle for my hand that holds the riser was always a bit too big for me. However, the Spyder fits perfect like a glove. For this reason alone, I wanted to try the Spyder as I have smaller hands. If I??m buying driving gloves I usually would wear a medium or a large. XL gloves never work for me. Sometimes Large can be too big. As for the bow being lighter and more handy I really like that. I??m a 5??9?? 195 lbs body builder, so not like the Sage was heavy to me, it is just the Spyder feels like a feather in comparison. As for finish, I think the Spyder is a bit more pretty, edges more rounded and refined. One quality issue, the limbs do not fit in the riser w the same super tight tolerances as the Sage. They are a tad loose n sloppy, but they do definitely tighten down once the screws are tightened. I just wonder if slightly looser tolerances over time will matter? Maybe not, as the bow shoots great. My only knock against the Spyder and it is a HUGE negative, it is made in the PRC!!! Maybe why the limb sloppiness? I had thought it would be built in South Korea or maybe the USA? But I am not sure a lot of archers and bow hunters are going to like the ??made in China?? stamp? Maybe won??t bother some. But, all in all great bow. Request to SAS, please move production from China! I would have paid $25-60 more just to avoid it being a PRC product. To be honest, if I would have known it was PRC made in advance of puchase, I probably would have passed on buying it. But now that I have, I do love it more than my Sage! So……your call. I do rate this bow a 5 despite it being made where it is.

Bought this bow on May 15th, 2018 and the bottom limb delaminated and broke on July 4th, 2018. Fortunately I was wearing polarized safety glasses or it would have put the arrow nock into my eye. (I shoot a 3 under fixed crawl). Sad thing, this was an incredibly accurate shooting bow. Always used a stringer to string and release.

Customer Questions & Answers


What bow is right for me?
Answer: It depends on what you are using it for. 45# blades are good for deer and bears. It’s a good middle weight in my opinion. Your handedness too can affect how comfortable a bow is. I’m ambidextrous. I generally write right handed, but shoot Bow and Gun left. You have to decide what’s comfortable for you.

I am adult male roughly 140-150 lbs and I am about 5’7″ in height. My upper body strenghth is ok. What limb size do you recommend?
Answer:

Your height and weight have nothing to do with your ability to draw a bow. If you are new to archery, choose the 20-25lb limbs and call it a day. There is nothing wrong with a light bow at all; they are fun, the arrows are fairly inexpensive, they’re won’t go through your back yard fence when you miss your target, and ??

My husband is about 6ft2. I measured for his draw length and it’s 31.2. What would be the appropriate weight to get him?
Answer: I have a 32″ draw. Get the xl limbs. The weight you see advertised is at 28″ add 2.5# per extra inch of draw. So for him to shoot 30# you’d want 20# limbs.

What draw weight would be recommended for a 7yo girl?
Answer: I’ve got an 8 y.o. and while she can handle a 20lb, she’s not excellent or steady with it, so I’ve stuck with a 15lb bear archery “flash” youth bow for her. My SW Archery Spyder is a fine bow at 45lb, but binds up a little if you’ve got a long draw. I would say this bow is a little long at 62″ for a 7yo also. Hope this helps.

what is the draw length?
Answer: Hello Clint, the draw weight of the Spyder is measured at 28″. However you can pull the bow as far as you need for your draw length, if you pull more than 28″ it will add about 2.5 pounds per inch over. It will also decrease about 1.5 pounds per inch if your draw length is less than 28″.
