Anyone here fancy shooting, searching with or gathering the 60’s Ben Pearson recurve bows? We saw one out of about perfect condition throughout the week-end at a tiny junk that is nondescript right right here in Portland..50..about 56″ for 50.00.. nearly got it myself but simply do not require another bow. ) Jim
A Ben is had by me Pearson Colt 62″ – 50@28. A new come personallyr to me shot it once or twice. It offers a various handle setup then just about any bow We have actually.
Pete, My memory fails me personally on this a person’s title..maybe GAMESTER? Red glass regarding the straight straight back..no tip overlays..no string but directly without having any blemishes.All it requires is a little of cleaning-wax and a brand new sequence.
It absolutely was shorter..56-58″ I think..Not a Colt or some of the 70’s Pearson rcurve names We readily recognized.Jim
We additionally have Ben Pearson “Colt 62″ 56 & 28” however it is fat for me to shoot now. 10-12 years back it absolutely was a story that is different. We dropped 9 now I’m able to shoot like We accustomed 10-12 years back.
I have got a couple of, the best is a LH Equalizer 48″AMO (about 42 strung that is” 50 @ 28″. We have a signature TD that is 2pc do not take care of the grip/shelf upon it. I actually do like shooting the majority of the Pearsons.
Simply arrived in from shooting my Ben Pearson Mustang and saw this thread. It was bought by me new in 1963. The serial is 16-633 so i suppose it really is a 1963 model. It really is 64″ and it is 46 @ 28. We pull it 29. It’s a great shooting bow and places them where you are searching.
The 1963 Mustang had red cup, Sailor, together with catalog quantity 975 onto it.

First for the Gamester was 1970, and it was a 56″ bow year. In 1973 it went along to a 54″ bow. It absolutely was detailed to own Ebony Pearsonite Glass, but I do not have the 71 or 72 information, therefore it might have had red cup in among those years.
