Pearson made some very fine bows, now considered vintage but still
very serviceable and if it looks good and has no limb twist when strung
I'd go for it.
The only complaint I have on old Pearsons was their choice of glass color...
I have a very nice one with a Zebrawood riser that looks allot like the Bear
Super Kodiacs but the back side glass is a funky off green color and the belly
glass is a dull milk chocolate brown...great shooting bow just not very pretty
I bought a Ben Pearson Cougar in 1965 and still have it. It is excellent condition and I plan to give it to my #1 grandson as soon as he is old enough to shoot it and appreciate it. It is an outstanding bow @ 50 Lbs., 28 inch draw.
