    Question Older Compound Bow.. Need to Identify

    This Bow was part of a package deal included with a Bear Whitetail Hunter, Carrying Case, 6 Easton 2018 Gametaker Arrows, 2 Quivers.. both bows are older bows but for this recurve shooter, they will be a great transitional, inexpensive crossover.
    It has been suggested it was a Martin but Martin Tech stated NO, not ours.. Thought it might be a Darton, Bear, Jennings, or Golden Eagle from pics on Archery History.. A Darton Dealer does not believe it is that brand..
    So I am turning to the many bow hunters of long experience to help me identify the brand of bow.. so that I can find tuning and adjustment specs for this bow..
    Ata 49"
    Limb 19"
    Riser is black with a silver speckles
    presently set @ 30" draw and 52# draw wt.

    Hey man!
    From the pics of the limbs and cams it really looks like a Golden Eagle.....I owned 3 of those bows back in the day.....I may be wrong but it looks like thats what it is.

    I say Jennings. From the picture I'd say I have one --cept I think someone jiggered the riser with paint.
    Don't re call the silver fleck. Not sure though.I'm 70 and shoot this bow right now with a set of Don Kudelaks cams. Mine came from about 75 to 80 era.Great bows , I have mine done over with BCY string and cables . Made my own stuff.

    Looks to me like a Pearson, early '80s. Similar to this one:

    AS ALL can see this is the same problem techs & I are having.. Bear thinks it is a Bear/Jennings also.. it came with a Bear marked quiver on it.. does anyone have the specs for the Golden Eagle?.. Riser is as I have rec'd it.. the silver flecking is not that evident to most persons ..
    the cam looks like a 1st gen Martin Z-cam .. this is what has made ID difficult... since the labels are missing without logos on limbs.. cam has 3 adjustment holes with a +/- marking on it..
    It is in great condition overall... Appreciate all the info I can get...
