Very good shooter, accurate, slight noise; some quality issues; may be better for a taller archer. Review by Aimless

This is my second bow, bought as a step up from a Sage. I have been shooting for 2.5 years; 27.5" draw, I am 5'7" tall. The 40 lb bow feels a little heavier than my Sage at the same weight (possibly because brace height is an inch higher), but the draw is smoother. Significantly easier to shoot accurately than the Sage, but because of the apparent weight difference I get tired faster. Fits my hand well, though grip is on the low side of my preferred medium. Very little hand shock, less noisy than the very noisy Sage, but still needed beaver paw silencers, and even then has a brief "thumm" on release. Took a few weeks of shooting to settle in (me and the bow) but after that no problem with accuracy (better off the shelf than the Sage with a rest), using wood arrows spined for 40 lbs, 125 grain field tips, cut to 30", or aluminum Easton 1916's at 28.5" with 75 grain points. Noticably more consistent groups than with the Sage. So far, so good.

This bow was hard to vertical tune---every string nock height I tried shot unfletched arrows nock high. Even so, fletched arrows shoot very well, so I must be close. I will try to re-tune after a few more outings.

I find the riser wood combo and overall lines of the bow very nice. Riser finish is very good. A slight cosmetic minus is that clear glass backing somehow makes the figured wood veneeer of the limbs look a bit fake, but this is not a minor drawback.

Minuses: 1. The first riser I got arrived badly and obviously split at a glue line, and the laminations were assymetric. Although Lancaster replaced it right away, this should never have left the warehouse, nor the factory. 2. The limbs seat very, very slightly askew because the limb sockets for the pin and the bolt hole are not quite in line. The assembled strung bow has no perceptible twist, though; but this skew could be part of the reason this bow is not quieter. 3. This bow is very hard to string because of the amount of recurve and the bow length and my shortish arms-- the stringer flexes the limbs too far away from my hand. I pulled a shoulder muscle stringing it. I need to use a stringer that goes over both limb tips, rather than the kind with a friction hold for the upper limb (which I think are safer). 4. The string that came with the bow is fine, but needlessly heavy. 5. Accurate shooter, but does not seem especially zippier than my Sage. 5. At this price, the bow should come with some documentation or written warrantee.

Overall: Smooth, shoots well, nice lines, nice riser wood. Good overall feel. Construction quality should be better at this price, and I had hoped for a quieter bow. This 62" bow would probably be better suited to someone taller with a longer draw--might be faster, easier to string. Although this bow is very good overall, and I am sure I will enjoy shooting it, if it was stolen I would try something else as a replacement.

Good looking top to bottom, shoots fast and hits hard Review by Hawkdaddy40

Just received my 55# devastator and tried it raw at just 10 yards to check the increase in weight from 45# DH. Smooth and easy to hold at draw. Time will tell about longer term quality. Looks and feels very nice out of the box.
Accuracy with bear hair and plastic vanes might need a whisker type rest. Converting from compound. DH is 70's issue at listed 47# but feels a tad lighter.
Got a fair deal at $350 delivered with 2 strings.
Very happy!

Nice bow to shoot but poor quality Review by Fieldarcher

This is a very nice bow to shoot with; accurate and smooth draw. However the quality in the material is poor to say the least. I noticed cracks developing in the limb tips after a few weeks of use. Lancaster archery sent me new limbs (once again: thank you for good service) and now these have developed exactly the same cracks. Perhaps it´s a flaw in the design of the bow. I have the 50# Devestator.
