I have a beautiful Ben Pearson Recurve 58" 45#@28" It has some minor blemishes in the finish but shoots great no twists or cracks. The pictures don't do it justice. I did put a ding in the back of the riser when I took it bowfishing and nocked my arrow backwards one time. This is a great starter bow and I started shooting it well enough that I decided to buy an Ancient Spirits recurve. $125 TYD... I would really like to see this bow go to a young archer so if you know somebody who needs one to get started...let me know and we'll work something out.
