This is is without a doubt the strangest bow ever built. It is a Pearson Advantage built sometime in the early to mid 80s. I think it is something that came with Noah on the arc. At rest it has a brace height of about 4" but as you draw, the grip moves forward as the string is drawn backward. (In the pic the grip is unlatched and moved forward.) The resistance on the grip is designed to match the pull on the string, applying equal force to both hands while drawing. For some reason there is a funny hooked bracket that attaches to the grip and hooks over a post on another bracket behind the string. It is a PIG to draw and it is as heavy as the Titanic. A friend called me and asked me if I would build a string for his hunting bow and this is what he dropped off. The owner is around 70 years old and is the most phenomenal archer you could ever imagine. This old boy can just plain shoot!!!! and he does it all with equipment you or I wouldn't take on a bet.
