Any new bow purchases?

As the title says......

I'm picking my new Elite Energy 32 up today. I went before Christmas and shot numerous bows from a variety of companies. The 32 felt better to me than any other bow I shot. Can't wait to put it through it's paces.

Bassnleo, did you shoot the Synergy also? How do they compare? I really am thinking about buying a Elite bow. I shot the 32 and really liked it.

I picked up on 12/31 a Bear Agenda 7! Big improvement from my Strike. I have the trophy ridge react sight and static stabilizer. I wish it was October! I do need a bow case now. The old one fit the smaller bow.

Anything worth doing, is worth overdoing.

I will be picking up a Synergy tomorrow. I shot the shop owners for about an hour and ordered one that day. I cant wait to get it home and put some arrows through it. I had an Answer and I regret selling that bow...

I did, along with the 35. I'm not the largest guy in the world and the shorter A to A length of the 32 suited me better. I don't competition shoot or anything, only hunt with it, so I went with the 32. They all shot really nice I will say.

I was shooting quarter sized groups at 20 yards today with the new 32. The bow barely moves in your hand when it goes off. As an example, I have a Trophy Ridge Hitman 3 pin sight with a light which screws into the sight housing. Had same sight on my Parker Kodiac. When shooting the Kodiac, the light would come loose from vibration after 2-3 shots. In shooting the 32 today, I didn't even realize I still had the light attached. It never budge a smidge and stayed tight. The vibration on this bow is virtually non-existant.

My DL is 27.5", new bow has 60 lb limbs and that's where it's set. Although we didn't shoot it through a crono, Elite's website indicates that for my set-up it should be shooting about 300 fps. I have no idea exactly what it's at but I can certainly say it's faster than the Kodiac which was shooting 283 with same DL, poundage, and arrows.
