I used to work in a Diecasting factory years ago...We cast the risers' to
Bear, Hoyt, Ben Pearson and PSE from Magnesium alloys... The Number
that you have could be date related "if" it is on the riser of the bow...or it
could be just a simple die code and therefore insignificant...I suppose that
could also be so on the limbs...Pretty much gotta see it to help ya...Wish I
could do more.....................

Bowfisher 51. Do you know if you made a handle for the Ben Pearson Flame hunter/ It was the one with brown flocking on it. Groves had a bow with the same handle, but had black flocking. Since both companies had the same handle I assume a third party made the handle. W#hat was the name of your company?

Sorry Kelly, couldn't get into my personal messages for some reason............
Tennessee Diecasting Div. of Hayes Albion Corp. The plant has been closed
about 5 years now....They did some finishing there at the plant but, I think
most of Ben Pearson stuff went directly to the assembly facility in Arkansas..
I ordered & received a Pearson Ambusher 60-70# directly from that plant..I
can't recall what city...This was early 80's....

Th is a pre 1980s bear compound.........I would say around 77-79........Bears fiberglass compounds came in vogue around the early 80s.........I would check g for cracks and any delaminations in the limbs.........in good shape though.........I would hang it just like you have it and keep it away from sun, heat etc.........what is it worth? What someone will give you.........there is no value in old bows unless you find the right person...........Art(toxo)

Thanks a lot, i have went over this bow with a fined tooth comb. Couldnt find anything wrong with it. I bought it 3 years ago for $15 off of a friend. I have shot the bow many times and she shoots like a dream. I was thinking of turing it into a bowfishing rig, what do you think? Muz.

The 77 & 78 Bear catalogs do not list it, I dont have a 79 but I doubt it has it either, Id say about 83.
