    Ben Pearson Recurve?

    Ok so I'm getting my buddies recurve. It's fiberglass green with only Ben Person and a 306 on it. It breaks away into two pieces with a leather grip. What kind is this bow and how good is it? Please help y'all. Thanks.

    Its probably a pretty good bow. Pearson made quality products. I saw a similar one for sale on the internet recently for $125. That one was 45# I think. Pretty sure this was a standard hunting model - should be pretty reliable. I've got an old one piece Pearson wood recurve and it still shoots great. Good luck with it.

    Are the limbs considered "non-working recurve" limbs?

  13. #13
    No they work...and they work good. You have to consider, in that bows day we shot heavy cedar arrows but not all of them weighed exactly the same like todays carbon wonders. The lesser hook on the limbs meant better cast with the arrows of the day. Nice bow and for sure a nice one to start instinctive shooting.

    It will be fine to take hunting. Just do a once over for cracks and limb warping. POst this in the traditional forum here, they will be able to help you a lot more.

    Awesome. No cracks or nothing. It was well taken care of.
    Well how do I transfer this over to the traditional thread?

    Also I'm a 32 inch draw so how would I figure the poundage at my pull?

    You will need a scale. You may want to head to your local shop.

    Ok thanks.

    Actually I was looking at the bow and I even have the picture posted above. The one limb says 40-28. Does this mean 40lbs at 28 inches. If that is the case I pull at 32 inches so what would be the poundage at my pull?

    I think I figured it. If it is 40 lbs at 28 inches then I would be around 48 lbs at 32 inches if the 2 lbs per inch is correct for this bow.

    So I might be open to selling this bow. What would y'all think I should price it at?
