How to set up a takedown recurve bow

The takedown recurve bow is one of the most popular choices for recreational archers and traditional bowhunters. In this video, Lancaster Archery Supply TechXPert P.J. Reilly walks through the steps to set up the Samick Sage recurve bow.

Reilly demonstrates how to attach the limbs to the bow and how to put the string on the bow using a bow stringer. He also discusses how to measure the bow’s brace height – the distance between the string and the throat of the grip – and how to twist or untwist the string to adjust the brace height to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Lastly, Reilly shows how to find the correct nocking point on the bowstring and how to attach nok sets to frame that nocking point.
