As a direct followup to the Sage takedown recurve bow, the new Sage Elite carries over standard model's essential performance while bringing a new touch of refinement to the design features.
At its core, the Sage Elite sports a sturdy composite riser to give it some stabilizing mass like the standard Sage. Where it differs is in the details. Gone are the large thumb-bolts and metal limb retention pockets, infamous for gouging the limbs while the bow was disassembled. In their places are flush keyed bolts and a more sophisticated bolt & pin limb socket design. This not only makes the sides of the limbs flush with the riser, but also avoids the complication of a misaligned or damaged limb retention cup. It continues to support the options for a stabilizer or fishing reel, sight bracket or bow quiver, and elevated or traditional shelf rest.
