Any other good brands? Kinda leaning toward non wood riser just for durability and longevity. Any other good brands besides samick? Just trying to search for options.

If i was you I would get a mid 70's bear grizzly at 50-55lbs. you can get one for around $150 honestly you cant go wrong with old bear bows. if you spend a little more I would get a 1964 bear kodiak its just an incredible bow.

I shoot my dad's longbow that was built in '79.  It is wood and glass.  A quality made bow will last a long time.

My bro in law had a Bear Grizzly,55lbs I believe. Great shooting bow. He now has a custom made longbow that some guy on the upper pen in Michigan made him. 50lbs. It is sooooooooo light. It feels like nothing and shoots great. I wanna say he paid $700 for it.

For a hunting bow don't buy an aluminum riser, they are just plain miserable in the cold.  I know little about compound other than they are easy to hold on full draw.  I hunted with a bow in the 1950's, 60's and 70's pre compound era for both big game, small game(even pheasant) and belonged to a archery hunting club.  I started with a ParX 50# bow, aluminum grip and magnesium limbs, it was the coldest bow to hunt with, I tried wrapping the handle with sheep skin, you name it the cold just seemed to seep into my hand no matter what I did, hated that bow in the winter and bought a Bear Grizzly 55#, best thing I ever did as far as archery hunting.

I did end up with a compound in the early 1980's a fellow traded one in on a rifle at my shop, I believe it was a 60# Martin, so easy to hold on a full draw and accuracy was unreal, I could keep arrows in a paper plate to 70 yards, as good as shotgun slug of the day.  I only kept it for a short time as I could no longer archery hunt for deer.

I did see one of the early Kodiak Magnums with the metal strip in them delaminate in a fellows hand at one of our club practice sessions, it took a lot of stitches to put his hand back together.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Take a look at this bow.
 http://www.greatreearchery.com/viewproduct.asp?menu_id=2&category_id=1&itemtype_id=4&item_id=30&pgsize=&t=
I have around 20 recurve and longbows and this one is my go to bow. Its the fastest hardest hitting of what I have. It cost around $250. It's a one piece which to me means its lighter in the hand and sexier to look at then a take down. Its about twice the price as the Samic Sage and will kick the Sage to the curb.The Sage is a cheap bow and shoots good for what you get but is probably my least favorite to shoot. I have a couple older Bear Kodiaks that I really like also.
I'm not sure.
