If you’re looking for a recurve bow that keeps things simple but can hold its own with high-end models, we may have the solution for you. The Courage SAS Takedown is a wooden beauty built for novices or archers ready to take the next steps.

This is another 60-inch bow, but powerful considering the draw weight starts at 35 and runs to 55 pounds. While it will definitely take out a block target in the backyard, it’s more than capable of dropping larger game in the field as well.

Do you like instinctive shooting?

Southland Archery Supply produced a powerful bow with the Courage, and most archers felt it’s comfortable to shoot with little vibration. If you want a sight or any other type of bolt-on accessory, you’re out of luck with this one unless you’re willing to modify it. While you can still pop the limbs off, you’ll need to aim the old fashioned way as there are no extras to speak of.

While not drilled, the riser looks good and is made from three layers of wood with Makor, Chugla, and Bintangor which are hard woods. As for those limbs, they are Maple and Makore with fiberglass facing. They are sturdy, but not reinforced for Fast Flight strings.

If you want those, you’ll need to pick up a newer set of Spirit limbs which look the same, but range from 35 to 60 pounds. Switching limbs is easy, but you'll need to use a tool. Due to the way the limbs fit onto the riser, using limbs from another brand is highly unlikely.

While there’s a lot to like about this bow, it does have a few minor drawbacks although none are deal breakers by any means. It doesn’t come with anything in the box aside from a hex wrench, instruction manual, felt rug rest, and a bow string of unknown origins.

It has a stellar 3-year warranty and is available in right or left-handed variants.
