outstanding bow Review by dsm

I bought this as a "keep in the truck" and general learning tool. The wood is beautiful, the finish very good, the limbs are straight and responsive. I bought it with 45lb limbs, added 35lb for target shooting.

A very good bow for a great price.

Great buy great bow Review by mc grinch

Bought a couple of these for me and the boy (45lb and 35lb). Great fun blasting arrows with them and learning to shoot.. Using them for target at a local club here but we have quickly gained enough confidence to move to hunting. I think I am ready to step it up a little and buy a 50/55lb limb. I am pushing a 31 inch draw and shoot this bow with ease. Great bow for tall Gumby like people. LOL

Good bow at any price Review by Bob
Quality

I bought a Journey as back-up TD bow for my Brackenbury TD to accompany me on an Elk hunt this September. In addition, I own a Blacktail, a Martin Howett Hunter, and a Wing Swift Wing - all one piece bows. All my bows shoot well, and I have no complaints about any of them. The Journey shoots just as well as the rest of them. And, the price!

The finish is fine, the limbs are fine, the string is okay. My only complaint is that LAS lists this bow as a "beginner" bow. I don't think this is true. The Samick Journey is as good as any bow at any price for any use that a stronger draw weight bow would normally be used.

Now, I can buy different limb weights for different purposes with the money I've save. Have a good day. ... Bob

The Journey is my first bow. I got 45 pound draw limbs mainly for target shooting. However, if I decide to hunt it is legal, minimum in Ohio is 40. I have not had any problems whatsoever. The bow is light, accurate and powerful. I don't have any desire to buy a higher end bow; the Journey fits the bill for everything I want out of archery. I am extremely pleased.

First bow, seems really good. Review by Dean ([email protected])
Quality
Price

Bought the 60 POUND LIMBS with this bow, extremely impressed. For the price, this bow is exactly what I wanted and way more.
When I saw the HAND TIGHTENED BOLTS I was happy because I didn't need a tool and as a beginner I enjoyed that it was as easy as possible to install, I was a bit worried they wouldn't get tight enough, but soon found out tightness wasn't at all a problem.
STRINGING THE BOW at 60 pounds should probably be done with a bow stringer to avoid limb twist, but I did it by hand on the grass and it seemed pretty easy to keep the bow bending straight and not all over the place risking limb twist. The string that came with it is a little noisy, so I'd recommend getting some silencers or perhaps a quieter string if hunting is your game.
SHOOTING THE BOW I was impressed, as with any 60lb bow, the power is exciting and has got me looking forward to what can be done shooting with this bow in the future as my skill improves.
As for the SERVICE from the team at Lancaster archery, I could not be more impressed. I have bought a reasonable amount of products online but I am yet to experience such a good quality of service from any online goods provider.
ALL IN ALL, if your new to archery, as I am, from one rookie to another, I honestly couldn't be happier with this bow, you won't be disappointed. If your an existing archer, looking for a cheap fun bow. This is probably the way to go, I think Lancaster archery offer another bow similar in price which is 66" and looks to have a non-wooden riser. But personally I like the timber so I went for this one and I'm not looking back. Although I'm not going to write this review and pretend that 60 pounds isn't overkill, unless your hunting with the thing. I'm considering purchasing some more limbs at a lower poundage, maybe 35-40, just so I can improve my archery skills without as much effort.
Sorry for the LONG REVIEW but I wanted to put some time into it, just to share how happy I am with the bow, and help other buyers decide whether it is for them or not! Thanks again to the team at Lancaster archery for providing a great bow, at a great price, with some of the best customer service available! THANKS

The Journey is a Good Bow Review by randeezy
Quality
Price
Value

This bow is pretty much the same as the Sage; the riser is practically the same, but the limbs are overall 2" longer. I prefer the Journey over the Sage though because of the longer length. This difference might be negligible for some, but it's nice to me.

The shelf is a bit rough in terms of finish/cosmetics, but other than that, the bow is well made. I've tried other more expensive bows, but if you don't mind how the Journey looks, then it's better bang for your buck.

I chose the Journey over the Sage as I have a 30" draw
The bow looks, feels and shoots great
If you are looking for a bow to grow with you, this is a great buy as multiple limbs
are available

Great Value Review by Bryce

I bought this as my first foray into archery. Essentially a slightly longer version of the Samick Sage, the Journey is great value, and negates the risk of having wasted too much money if it turns out that you're not gonna get into archery after all.

It shoots well, and copes with 30 inch draw length. I love that I don't have to screw around with tools to put it together. I've had no problems at all.

I purchased this bow as my first bow. I can't say enough about how great it has been! It shoots very smoothly, VERY accurately, and I can't see spending more money on another bow that couldn't possibly shoot any better!!

Wicked but weird Review by Bjorn Kjell
Price
Value
Quality

It's a great shooting bow. My previous recurve had limb twist, despite using high end stringers. This one has much better quality limbs, and LESS limb twist. There was still a bit at the top limb but it's minimal... But it shoots very straight and has good balance, when I draw it I feel like I can keep my forehand open without it slipping up or down. GREAT grip by the way, and VERY lightweight.
Does the job. 40# is plenty for me, my last was 55# of shoulder tearing mayhem. Efficiency over aggression I suppose!
Best out there.

Great Bow Review by Mike

Was looking at the Sage and wanted something a little longer and found it with the Journey. I have been using it daily for the last few months with zero issues. I was sceptical about the hand tightened takedown bolts but have had no creep on them at all. Every part of this bow is solid. light and surprisingly durable. I would definitely recomend this to anyone who like me wanted a good solid bow but still has to keep it within budget.

Wow Review by Nik

This is my second bow. Haven't had a chance to shoot any "high end" bows, but wow is it nice!
The finish is very clean. A few rough spots not nothing terrible if you really look for them. I'll probably put a few more layers of varnish on it to make it really shine.
Shoots great. Easy no tool assembly.
For the price, I couldn't find anything better...

Fit and Finish was very good, especially for the price. A few small rough spots on the riser but you buy this bow for function, not looks. The bow functions perfectly, and doesn't stack at my 29" draw length. I wouldn't hestitate purchasing this bow.

Lancaster shipped quickly and I got it before Christmas. Bow came packaged well and looked great. The arrow rest did have some ruff wood but overall the bow looks and functions perfectly. Bow comes with a string and assembles very easily with no problems. I would deffinately recommend to someone interested in archery.

I got this bow on preorder, and it shipped very quickly once it was delivered to Lancaster from the vendor. It shoots very good, and it came with everything you'd expect. Packaging was great!

I originally was looking at the Samick Sage, but I'm very tall so I have a longer draw length. The Journey is perfect for my longer draw. It performs exactly as I expected it to!
