Anyone here fancy shooting, searching with or gathering the 60’s Ben Pearson recurve bows? We saw one out of about perfect condition throughout the week-end at a little junk that is nondescript right right here in Portland..50..about 56″ for 50.00.. nearly got it myself but just have no need for another bow. ) Jim
We have a Ben Pearson Colt 62″ – 50@28. Not used to me shot it a times that are few. This has a various handle setup then virtually any bow We have actually.
Pete, My memory fails me personally with this an individual’s title..maybe GAMESTER? Red glass in the straight straight straight back..no tip overlays..no string but directly without the blemishes.All it requires is just a bit of cleaning-wax and a string that is new.
It had been shorter..56-58″ I think..Not a Colt or some of the 70’s Pearson rcurve names We readily recognized.Jim
We additionally have Ben Pearson “Colt 62″ 56 & 28” however it is fat for me personally to shoot now. 10-12 years back it absolutely was a story that is different. We dropped 9 and today I’m able to shoot like We familiar with 10-12 years back.
I have got a couple of, the best is really a LH Equalizer 48″AMO (about 42 strung that is” 50 @ 28″. We have a signature 2pc TD, never take care of the grip/shelf onto it. I actually do like shooting the majority of the Pearsons.
Simply arrived in from shooting my Ben Pearson Mustang and saw this thread. I got myself it brand new in 1963. The serial is 16-633 so I assume it’s a 1963 model. It really is 64″ and it is 46 @ 28. It is pulled by me 29. It’s a shooting that is great and places them where you are searching.
The 1963 Mustang had glass that is red Sailor, along with catalog quantity 975 about it.
return back and purchase it u can offer it during the next occasion u get to maby pay money for fuel they’ve been great bows I prefer them well
First 12 months when it comes to Gamester had been 1970, plus it had been a 56″ bow. In 1973 it went along to a 54″ bow. It had been detailed to own Ebony Pearsonite Glass, but I do not have the 71 or 72 information, so that it might have had glass that is red one particular years.
Well, I took place and visited the fellow that is old gets the junk shop this AM..I HATE IT WHEN our MEMORY DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY. )
The bow is Ben Pearson ‘GAMESTER’..and beneath that 7388
Ebony cup right right back & face.Maple lams.
3 piece bubinga riser with maple accents between.
Suggestion overlays are bubinga..
marked BW-8501 56″ X50@28″. I believe it is from about 1970 or thereabouts.. Took several bowstrings along and braced it and it’s also dead-nuts straight..Jim
Just washed up a Ben Pearson Rouge, fresh camo task, and a brand new Bear seven arrow quiver. Retro arrows on top of that. 45@28
George..You are proper in regards to the black colored Pearsonite fiberglas. ) Anyhow..I paid 35.00 for this therefore are in possession of another bow that can help an archer that is new started.. Shucks an other can barely spread a 35.00 recurve in fine condition. )
Only have to make a sequence because of it and wax it and redo the arrow plate-shelf a tad.Jim

We have a 62″ 50 Colt, and simply got a month or more ago, a Hunter, 58″ and 55. Additionally, i acquired my grandson a Bronco, 48″ and 24. It appears like We shoot these a lot better than other people I possess.
Oh, i’ve a 60″ 40 Pony too. I do not shoot this very often; in reality it’s loaned out right now.
I experienced a 45er and really liked it. Want i really could stumble upon a 50. $50.00? I would purchase it.
Well..for those of you that don’t read well. I DID SO purchase the Pearson that is old 1970 ‘Gamester’ for $35.00.
Appears just like a number of the bows i got myself brand brand new within the belated 60’s for twice that plus shipping.Reminds me personally associated with the Brownng anbd Bear reduced bows f that period.
