I haven't been on here much, so maybe this has already been discussed.
Few of you have been fortunate to take delivery of a Martin Jaguar recurve with little to no incidence. I was not so fortunate.
I have a long list of issues with my Jaguar; however, my main concern is with the integrity of the limbs. I have heard, read, and witnessed close to a dozen limb failures; all of which have resulted with injuries. I'm sure there are many more occurrences that I am not aware of. Also, I am willing to accept limb failure to a certain degree, it comes with the territory; but, I am horrified with the thought of my wife or daughter possibly losing an eye as a result of limb failure from cheap, poor quality, sub-standard limbs. Now for the good news.
Pete Ward and several others have recently reviewed an intermediate/entry level recurve made by Samick called the Sage. I've had the opportunity to shoot this bow with impressive results and the Sage can be had for even less dollars than the Jaguar. Well, I'm not going to spend more money on another inexpensive recurve (guest bow); but I did come across a set of Sage limbs and I'm happy to report that they are a good fit on the Jaguar riser. My Jaguar, with Sage limbs, shoots fast and smooth. Now, with newly found assurance, I am enjoying the Jaguar and feel confident my family can too without concern.
