    Default Sorry such a long post

    I bought one used about a week ago and I haven't finished tuning it yet. I will start by saying that I have high hopes for this bow and so far I really like it.

    Now, I have run into a couple of minor issues while setting it up.

    1 Quite a few fallaway rests will not fit perfectly on this bow. You might have to set it up so that your arrow is higher than the burger hole or figure out some other work around. Maybe they have changed this since they made mine.

    2. The center shot is way off and I get a wicked right tear. After a little research I find that the spacers on both sides of the cam may need to be changed to different sizes to fix this. Also, some people have switched the upper and lower limbs to fix this and some minor cam lean. I called Elite and Kristin is sending me the spacers free of coarse. Really nice lady and great customer service.

    To me these are minor things and minor things like this are common among a lot of different brands of bows. I currently shoot a Mathews and I absolutely love it, but I had similar idler wheel lean and other issues to fix when I bought it. Once I got it perfect it has been a great bow and I expect this Elite will be the same.

    With the same arrow and draw weight and draw length I went from ~59ft.lbs of KE (Mathews) to ~73ft.lbs of KE (Elite)

    All in all I would say definite yes to look at it and shoot it and if you like it buy it.

    I have a GT500 and XLR coming on Monday. Ill let you know how I set mine up and how it shoots next week. My GTO has been super easy to tune. Bow shoots and has stayed in time great. Talking to John Hall who won several semi pro shoots in pro ams last year. He said he dont use a draw board.
