Default Elite Archery is on the move

Been shooting Elite bows in tournament and hunting. Currently shooting the GT500. Bow is amazing. Been shooting archery for 25yrs and this bow is fast and accurate. 61lbs 390grn arrow at 28 1/2" draw is shooting 280fps. Elite now has new owners and you can look for this manufactuer to go straight to the top. If you get the chance just shoot one and see for yourself. You can see all the Elite bows at http://www.elitearchery.com/ea_bows.php

XLR Elite bow is one sweet shooter as well. David Lay here in the picture has made the top ten in both Florida and Hattiesburg, Ms ASA Pro Ams. He made his first shoot down in Hattiesburg in Senior Pros. This bow brought this average amatuer into the pro ranks quickly. Watch how rock solid this bow holds and balances. Just go shoot one and see for your self. You can see all the bows at http://www.elitearchery.com/ea_bows.php The Z28 may be the best hunting bow on the market today,

These bows are accurate and fast. I shoot senior pro and shoot Elite bows because they are that good. Made this shot on the 14 ring at 37yrds last Sunday in a shoot off. Go check out the Elite bows and see if they may help your score or taking that next harvest.

Thats very surprising to hear. I was at the ATA show and we had many shooting the bows(Thousands) there and everyone really seemed to like the draw force curve on these bows. I switched from Mathews to Elite because of bad shoulders. I find them very easy to draw and can use low poundage. I have also been able to let many good pros try this bow and all of them were certianly not saying anything about a harsh draw. Mine are 2008 GTO and 2009 XLR and GT500. I know there diffiantly not harsh because thats one thing I dont want with my bad shoulders from 20 something years of weightlifting.

One must find what works for them!

I hunted OHIO this year with some guys from there. After they shot my Elite. They went and bought one. They simple love the bows.

I'm in the Rochester, NY area (Elite is located near Rochester as of late). Our local shop just got some in. They look decent. One of the guys at the shop said that the people that work there had recently switched over to Elite. I'll have to test one out at some point.

You should give them a try. There great bows and the new owner and his staff are right there in your back yard. Peter Crawford is the new owner.
Down to earth good guy that loves what he doing. He is committed to building the best bow on the market. His staff are devoted as well.
Let us know what you think.

I have not got to try the new 08. I only got to try a 06 my buddy had. It gelt like a 80 pound pull, and it was 70.

Understand any bow can be untuned properly. Even my 09 bow if the draw stops are not tuned properly I can have 50% let off on the bow.
Thats typical of Binary Cam. My thoughts are the bow you drew was not properly tuned. Hope you get a chance to shoot a well tuned Elite. I think you will see a big difference. Recently Kevin the designer redesigned the Z28 cam and made it smoother than ever for hunters need. Now he gave up 5fps in spedd but its Elite commitment to meet the desire of hunters.

Are any of there bows 500.00 or less? alot of people will not pay 800.00-900.00 for a bow anymore me included. Didn'nt thing so.
Truth is if I was looking to get a new bow[ which I'm not] it would be a pse bow maddness, matthews mission, ross carnivore
all are nice bows at a decent price.
