For a very long time I’ve wanted to learn archery, and so my sweetie did a swap with a friend for a very nice Ben Pearson bow. It was a HUNTER 7090, w/a 40# draw! Not something for a woman, with weak upper body strength, and arthritic fingers to start with! But I could draw it back some, and could shoot arrows relatively accurately. But not really fun and as a result it has sat in the closet for several years.
Decided to get another, less heavy bow and began researching. And what did I find out but that this wonderful bow is a LEFT HANDED BOW!
Anyway, have a vintage Ben Pearson bow on my watch list with Ebay, but have purchased a fireflight takedown bow; 62″ and 20lbs. Really light weight, but the nice thing about a take down is I can change the arms as I get stronger.
Kind of see this as learning to shoot with a .22 rather than jumping right into a .357 magnum kind of thing.
