I've had similar experiences. Two years ago I gave one of my old Pearson bow to a teenager at our club. He's a good kid and his dad couldn't afford to buy him one. Well, I had this 2003 Pearson Freedom that had been hanging for over 5 years so I got it out, took it to the club, and changed mods, string and cable and set the thing up for him. Juat to go a little further I started to sight it in at 20 yards to make sure it was at least close for him.

Man, I want to say, that bow was a real shooter. Just as good as I remember it being. I almost hated to give it up, but being a Martin shooter I followed through.

I never received any money fom the lad, or did I expect it. What I did get was a card with the nicest Thankyou note I've ever received. And that was thanks enough.

I gave my 10 year old PSE Nova to my oldest brother, how just got the archery bug. I was showing him how to sight it in and I was getting givers remorse..oh well I have my Martin Saber and now an Onza.

Had the same feeling. Gave my son my favorite recurve , a Darton Fury, when my right shoulder was torn up. (Torn rotator cuff ) After my shoulder was repaired, I started shooting again, with a used Martin Slayer that I put into shooting condition with the help of this forum. But as I've mentioned before, I'm really more of a traditional archer, and I really missed that old recurve. Long story short, picked up an old Ben Pearson Cougar recurve in April, and hunted turkey season with it. :)

I don't have my old compound bow any longer, but I get that feeling when I hunt with and shoot trap with my SxS I bought when I was 15.
