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 nondescript junk store right here in Portland..50..about 56″ for 50.00.. Almost purchased myself but simply have no need for another bow. ) Jim
A Ben is had by me Pearson Colt 62″ – 50@28. Not used to me shot it once or twice. It’s a various handle setup then just about any bow We have.
Pete, My memory fails me personally on this an individual’s title..maybe GAMESTER? Red glass in the straight straight straight back..no tip overlays..no string but directly without the blemishes.All it takes is really a bit 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
In addition have Ben Pearson “Colt 62″ 56 & 28” however it is fat for me personally to shoot now. 10-12 years back it absolutely was a various tale. We dropped 9 and today I’m able to shoot like I accustomed 10-12 years back.
I have got several, the best is really a LH Equalizer 48″AMO (about 42″ strung) 50 @ 28″. We have a signature TD that is 2pc do not take care of the grip/shelf upon it. I really do like shooting the majority of the Pearsons.
Simply arrived in from shooting my Ben Pearson Mustang and saw this thread. I purchased it brand new in 1963. The serial is 16-633 it is a 1963 model so I assume. Its 64″ and it is 46 @ 28. It is pulled by me 29. It really is a great shooting bow and sets them where you are searching.
The 1963 Mustang had red cup, Sailor, and had catalog quantity 975 about it.
return back and purchase it u can offer it during the event that is next get to maby buy fuel these are generally great bows I love them well
First for the Gamester was 1970, and it was a 56″ bow year. In 1973 it decided to go to a bow that is 54. It had been detailed to own Ebony Pearsonite Glass, but I do not have the 71 or 72 information, so that it might have had glass that is red among those years.
Well, I took place and visited the fellow that is old gets the junk store this AM..I HATE IT WHEN our MEMORY DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY. )
The bow is Ben Pearson ‘GAMESTER’..and beneath that 7388
Ebony cup straight straight back & face.Maple lams.
3 piece bubinga riser with maple accents between.
Suggestion overlays are bubinga..
marked BW-8501 56″ X50@28″. I do believe it and it is dead-nuts straight..Jim that it is from about 1970 or thereabouts.. Took several bowstrings along and braced
Just washed up a Ben Pearson Rouge, fresh camo task, and a unique Bear seven arrow quiver. Retro arrows on top of that. 45@28
George..You are proper concerning the black colored fiberglas that are pearsonite. ) Anyhow..I paid 35.00 because of it therefore are in possession of another bow that might help an archer that is new started.. Shucks an other can scarcely give a 35.00 recurve in fine condition. )
Only have to produce a sequence because of it and wax it and redo the arrow plate-shelf a tad.Jim

George. Looked over my bow once more it offers 16-633 and 45X – 28″ regarding the relative part for the riser as well as on the stomach it’s Ben Pearson Mustang utilizing the logo design and 716-64″. Brown cup in the relative straight back and white in the stomach.
We have a 62″ 50 Colt, and merely got two weeks ago, a Hunter, 58″ and 55. Additionally, i acquired my grandson a Bronco, 48″ and 24. This indicates like We shoot these much better than other people I have.
Oh, We have a 60″ 40 Pony also. I do not shoot this often; in reality it’s loaned away right now.
I’d a 45er and extremely liked it. Want i possibly could stumble upon a 50. $50.00? I would purchase it.
Well..for those of you that don’t read well. I DID SO choose the Pearson that is old 1970 ‘Gamester’ for $35.00.
Appears just like a few of the bows i purchased brand new when you look at the belated 60’s for twice that plus shipping.Reminds me personally of this Brownng www.datingmentor.org/pl/meetmindful-recenzja anbd Bear faster bows f that age.
