Re: ELITE owners?

I have an Elite Pure and its a great all around bow.I shot it in my indoor league and plan on hunting with it this fall. I prefer a little longer ATA bow like the pure 36 inches and 7 inch brace. I know a few people with answers and they love them.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: ELITE owners?

I have 3. a GT, Z and Pulse. Even though I shot a bow for 30 years I knew nothing about tuning bows. I think tuning Elites is a breeze, that's if you really want to fine tune them. With the binary cams, a twist in the string or cables can let you change so many things. I think some people say they are hard to tune because if the cams are out of synch, you lose performance ect. or if the bow is out of spec, you lose some performance. Having a draw board to check things helps if you like to tinker. My sons best freind has a GT. He loves the bow, he came over to shoot and I put it on the board and we tuned it a little and he really loved it more. I used to have to go to a shop just to change the weight on a bow, so if I can tune an elite , anyone can.

I shoot an Elite GT500. Once tuned they stay in tune. I don't think they are hard to tune, but a draw board is needed to do it right. Draw boards are easy to make & pretty cheap

Re: ELITE owners?

I've been shooting my Z28 for 4 years now. I've had the itch for a new bow for awhile now, but can't find anything I like better that I could justify spending the money on. I haven't shot the new Hunter yet, but they look nice and are getting great reviews.

Im a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

I forgot to say if you make a draw board for tuning, you will need some sort of bow press. You can make them fairly cheap also.
