    Default Bang for the buck

    The Saber is an underrated bow. I have sold many of them ranging from teenagers to 60 year old men and every customer has been happy with their choice. The Saber does have the composite riser but I have yet to see an issue with it, I have read about the riser cracking but have never seen it with my own eyes. They tune up easy and carry decent speed,for the money that is a good bow for hunting and some 3D.

    Welcome back to archery. well, to determine if it was a good buy or not, how much did you invest in it? the '11 models have improved strings and newer limbs, but performance wise they should be identical. I held every bow dicks sporting goods had on its shelf, inclucing a couple other martins , three or so bears, and a parker or two and i would have picked it over any of them. i thought it balanced steadiest, the grip felt good for me, and it was easily the lightest. Obviously the riser is not gonna make the people's most beautiful in the world list, but hey its a bow and they have the same cams supplied on bows which have approx double the msrp.

    The Saber is an outstanding bow! Even though it's not a speed demon, it's VERY forgiving and accurate. I'm sure you'll love it!

    Default Proud of my Saber

    I'm a recent return to archery myself. I bought a Saber about 2 months ago off ebay. I really enjoy shooting the bow and the more I look at prices for compounds the more I realize what a great deal it was.

    Default 2011 Sabre

    davidh - Welcome back! I received a 2011 Sabre this last August as a gift. Absolutely LOVE it. I spend a lot of time in the tree tops hunting and the rest of the time stalking. Nice and small, lightweight, easy pull from any position (sitting or standing) and deadly accurate. Bang for the buck it can't be beat. Has many of the components that other bows have for half the price.

    There is no difference between a Saber and Saber Mag. It's purely in the limb logo. Just like the Cougar was always the top bow in the Gold Series. This year it got moved to the Pro Series. Simply marketing. Just like they used to have the Bengal. Now it's the Bengal Pro. There's nothin Pro about it. It's just a name change.
