About What You'd Expect for the Price Review by Rab

I'm a beginning archer so I can't comment on the technical aspects of the bow. I will say that I am disappointed in the fit and finish. While the metal limb pockets are nice (and an advantage over other manufacturer's options in this class), the aesthetics could be better. The first bow I purchased had a scratch/crack at the top of the riser. Lancaster gracefully replaced it. The second bow I was sent is dirty with black/grey smudges across the riser. Easily fixed with some mild soap, right? Nope. The dirt smudges are underneath the clear coat finish. It came from the factory like that. My wife's SF Flame, by contrast, which I bought on clearance for half the price of the Polaris, is picture perfect. Too bad they don't have one of those in my size/handing.

Wonderful Review by Adam

For years, I've been shooting an old Bear Titan that, some way or another, found its way from a Boy Scout camp to my home. I didn't shoot very often (maybe every couple months), until this summer, when I swore to become a better archer and subsequently decided that I needed a better bow. It was definitely a welcome change to be shooting the Samick Polaris.
The bow is very aesthetically pleasing, with varying strips of brown and beige wood, and one that's deep red. At first I thought that white limbs would look as good as black ones, but they've grown on me, and I think they kind of "pop" and give the bow a little more of a lively look.
Even though the Polaris I bought has a 40# draw, it seems easier to hold and control than my old 30# Bear (although that may just be that honeymoon feeling). I find I'm able to shoot fairly consistent groups with the Polaris, but at this stage I'm still only shooting from about 20 or so yards out. Stringing the bow is a breeze, with or without a stringer. I've tried both, and though I prefer the traditional method, it's probably a better idea to use a stringer.
Disassembling and reassembling the bow is a relatively quick and easy process, but when I want to get those bolts down nice and tight, I either wear gloves or use a towel to keep from hurting my fingers.
The bow is noticeably louder than my Bear, which I understand to be a fairly common complaint (the Bear Titan is more of a longbow than a recurve). If you intend to hunt, it may be a good idea to invest in a string silencer. Additionally, you may want a hair rest for the arrow shelf to reduce noise made when nocking and drawing (I bought one, although that was mainly for aesthetic purposes).

Overall, it's a great bow, and although my experience is limited, I think that anyone looking for a beginner/intermediate-level bow would be satisfied with the Samick Polaris.
Additionally, I would like to applaud Lancaster Archery for sending the correct-handedness bow! Before coming here, I ordered a left-handed bow from Amazon, but when I opened the box, a right-hander was staring me in the face. Apparently the shop selling it thought that the hand holding the bow determines its handedness. So, I'm thankful that LAS knows their stuff, because I am now very happy with my left-handed Polaris.

Love it! Review by Caroline

I just got this bow a few days ago, and while I'm a tad over-bowed for now at 35#, it feels absolutely perfect, and I know it'll get easier once I build up the muscles to handle it. This is great for anyone just starting out!

Its a budget bow but shoots very well. Quiet and smooth. I set mine up at 28# with CX Predator 11 arrows and very pleased with the setup.

This is my first bow and I really like it, I shoot it maybe 3 times a week and its held up fine so far, the only reason I dinged the value is because you can get this same bow with a stringer other places. I have the #35 model and Im 6ft and my draw is 31" and I have no problems at all, its fun to shoot and I think its a great first bow.

This is my first bow, but I've shot quite a few. I got it for christmas and it is great! I'm about 5'10 and have a 27" draw length and it's perfect! It's really quality, and it was easy to string. It also breaks in really fast.

My first recurve bow Review by Hans Paal

It's been years since I have shot a bow, but my 8 year old daughter showed interest in getting into archery and my wife used to shoot in her youth so we decided as a family to get into the hobby. Being that we all needed to get some equipment we had a tight budget. I was not sure what these lower cost bows would be like and was hoping not to be disappointed.

Well I am certainly not disappointed. I am actually very surprised at the build quality for such an affordable bow. I have only shot a couple of times but am very happy with it. It is easy to take down and reassemble. Once I have used this bow for a few months I will update this review but so far this has been a great purchase.

My wife purchase done of the Cartel Triples and the nice thing is that it also uses the Polaris limbs which makes for some nice interchangeability in the future.

Lancaster Archery was also very helpful with my order and I was amazed at how quickly our order came.

Excellent Bow for Beginner, Intermediate Review by Allison Wunderland
Quality
Price
Value

Traditional recurve bows seem to be getting shorter, designed for ease of clearing obstacles while hunting in the woods or tree stand. But a longer bow for the target lanes is smoother, more forgiving. And so the Polaris at 66" is a great choice. Draw weight is not listed here, but it's available from 13# to 40#. Metal limb pockets, Samick is an industry leader in offering quality, no shortcuts, traditional bows, and the Polaris is part of that product line.

A very nice traditional bow for entry or intermediate skill levels, at a very nice price!

I was nervous when I ordered this bow, afraid that it wouldn't be the right one for me. My coach loved it!

I did as well. I've been using it for a week but I've already seen improvement.

I got this bow because my old one isn't what it used to be, and I'm thinking of competing but need a better bow to practice and compete with. When I got this bow, it was very easy to take apart and re-assemble and I have improved greatly without any help from a coach. Nobody has taught me how to use a bow but learning basics online and practicing I have improved greatly! I definitely recommend this bow to the appropriate age group, regardless of experience.

Great Bow! Review by Alexander Mustain

My archery coach suggested this bow for my first recurve bow. I had shot both compound and recurve, and like recurve better but when I decided I wanted to start competing, this is the bow he had me get.

It is easy to take apart and re-assemble, and I have improved greatly since I got it. I have only had it about 3 months, but can see a difference in the way I shoot it compared to the others I had used. I get to use it for my first competition soon, and am looking forward to seeing how I do.
