Default ?? Compound bow

I have a 94 model Pearson Spoiler that is just taking up space in my shop. I bought it new in 94'.

I would like to get rid of it. I realize it has no real monetary value but it was and still is a great shooter. I was @ 93 lbs of pull and just over 300fps back in the day. Now I would just like it to be gone. It has a Kwikee quiver, Keller pendulum sight, Zebra string, 65% let off..... When I bought it, it was the cats azz.


What would you do with it.

I'd keep it. It's not worth selling for the $75-$100 it may bring. Definitely an icon and should be hung somewhere in a man cave.

Default You could make a native in Africa happy

Just donate it-----

My son has a $900 Mathews bow that's a couple of years old, however it doesn't have the value that it did even last year.

I was at the Dixie Deer Classic back in the early 90's and picked up a bow, it was a JLJ Mountaineer or something like that. The booth guy said "bet you can't pull that and break it over" I said lets try..... It was 112 lbs The pulling it was not to big of a deal, when I let it off it nearly broke my shoulder I never let on to the booth guy though that my shoulder hurt, I'm sure he heard it pop.


Pulling a big poundage bow is as much about technique, as it is about strength........
FTR I'm 5'7" and 175 lbs. At the time I was shooting this high poundage bow, I was a red iron worker and bustin' rods on the wknds.......


Back then I was spring steel .....Now I'm a jelly donut....LOL
