Default Pearson Spoiler Quarf or something

I have assembled a quarf or warf or something. With the suggestions/idea’s from thisbucksforyou (thanks). I started on attempting to build the bow.
The compound bow is a pearson spoiler 80’s model of some kind, 89lb pull which is why the guy gave me the bow because he can’t pull it any more. The price was right(free) and I used to shoot one also and new I would like the feel of the handle and such.
The riser is deflexed a bit, 16” between the bolts, and 22” or just under from end to end. The limbs pockets are 1 7/8” wide and about 3 ¾” long. I think the pockets are 15 degrees or a little less.

Since I was looking for a 45-48lb bow and the riser was a bit long and I have a 28” draw. It was decided that Quinn limbs maybe the best bet and probably fit better in the pockets.
The guess was that the Quinn’s would lose about 8lbs from the marked weight, so I order 55lb 60” limbs. Once the limbs were mine, I had to rasp maybe 3/16” off the end so the limb bolt holes would match up and removed the limb pin. I pulled the rocker off the compound limbs and cut the studs off smooth. I used double sided tape to attach the rockers to the limbs (temporary).
I added a small shim of leather under the end of limb so the bolt would not bind as it was snugged down on the limb. Limb fit is nice and looks good from the side.

Got more pics but I don't know how to resize them small enough right now

The bow pulls 51-52@28” so it did not lose nearly as much as was expected,
The bow is shorter than I thought it would be. It measures 61” if measured from the nock grove along the belly around the curve to the other nock. It is 58” strung tip to tip. In the pic it is strung with a 8 ¼” brace, I have since lowered it to 7 ¾”, limbs look at little better there, Not sure what the brace height should be?
Shoots very well, defiantly the quietest ff-strung recurve I have shot, Arrow are quick appear to be a bit faster as a 55lb bow with the same 550gr arrow. Groups are constant I guess due the bow weight, it is a bit heavier than my wooden risered bows.
I guess I now have an idea about what “dead in the hand” means, bow feels solid on the draw compared to the wooden riser. Draw very smoothly till the 28” mark is reached.
I think I am going to like it if I can keep my son from shooting and declaring it “His”.
We kinda already arguing over who get to go hunting with it first next year.

As cheap as you can pick the spoilers up, Id say just make him one of his own.

That Bow looks great, and Im glad it worked out for you-Mike.

I guess we need to add one more to the list of risers that "cant" be converted.

Nice work, makes a better looking recurve that as a compound and probably is about as fast as the old round wheel compounds. Those old Pearsons pop up on ebay pretty often and go cheap, like TB4U said, another to add to the short list of warfables...warf

Mike, your right, remember when we could buy used Carbon Plus limbs for a hundred bucks on ebay? Those days are long gone for sure. To many warf's out there and enlightened archers searching for the good stuff .Guess we ruined the market...warf

Dont loose faith. The real good deals are just fewr and farther between. My last was a JOAD case that contained a Hoyt GM, GM 23 pound short carbons, some mint condition bear fascores and a dozen uncut fletched 1813's. Lets just say it cost me more to fill up the truck then what i paid the guy for that little treasure chest.

Besides, the brighter side to all this is no one wants those slow old heavy OLY risers anymore and you can pick them up for a pretty good price.

Thanks for commenting it was actually easy, but you just had to know what your trying to do. Thanks to warf threads on this site I thought I knew what I was after.

The more I shoot it the more I like it, Then when I go back and shoot one of my wooden riser recurves, the more I feel the differences.

I shot it thru my chrony which I use for reloading but will probably reasonbly close.
51@28 10gr per pound 170-172 fps
9gr per pound 183-185 fps

With my son shooting it
45@26 10gr per pound 163-165 fps

The best thing is that with a centerrest flipper, it will bareshaft to 30yds and hit the mark.. Took about 15 min to get the arrow to do that. Accurate, quick, quiet.. I think I need to work on my shooting, I got a bow that will outshoot me.

rtpcat, when you removed the pins from the limbs did you drill the pockets of the riser to accept the pins and reinstalled them in them in the riser pockets?

I have seen some Pearson Spoilers around in pawnshops and thought they might be warfable. I was thinking of trying this if I could get a bow cheap enough. Also if I wanted at 64" bow at 45-50 at 31" do you think the 64" 45#limbs would get me there? Thanks.

Ronin, you could do it that way....

I have never done this before this one.

I took the rockers off the compound limbs and put them on the recuve limbs. You could drill the limbs to accept the rockers or glue them. I thought glueing was the easist because you can lay the rocker in the limb pocket and screw the limb down on top of it watching your alingment instead of measuring and drilling the limb.

The limbs lost less than 5lbs than what was marked at 28" and I draw 28".
I think the 45lb limbs would be right, not sure about how long it will be but I do think you would need longer than 60" limbs. My limbs are building wieght faster per inch at 28 and 29 than they were 26-28" so to go to 31 on these limbs would make me wonder how it would feel. I bolted mine down all the way to add preload on the limbs because my son has a 26" draw. I can set it about 3 turns loser with shims and it only loses 1 lb at 28" but it will draw smoother to the 29" mark.
Maybe somebody else can help with the expected limb length.

After looking closer at the riser, the angle on the Spoiler looks to be close to the angle of the Proline. I had the Proline riser and didn't like the draw on it at my draw length, maybe I would be better off with a Bear/Jennings riser. Thanks.

Oh Yes, fun to shoot fun to build. Studying on getting some 400gr arrow see how it shoots them.
