GT 500 speeds
I have a chance at buying a used GT 500. The only problem is they are not sold close to where I live. I have never even seen an Elite at a shoot. I have only read about them. I would like some real world reviews from people that shoot them. Give me your good, bad, your ugly. Do they actually hit IBO? Do the cams actually run a little ling on the draw? Any limb issues? How does draw compare to the CAT cam?

I have a GT500 @ 28.5 inch 70.24 lbs and it shoots a 491 grn fmj 340 @ 276 fps. Soo if you do the math my bow is shooting right at 323 fps with and ibo grn arrow. That is right at what it should be for the ibo speed at a 28.5 inch draw. THEY DO MEET THE ADVERTISED IBO SPEEDS. The draw length is right on using the amo way to measure drawlength. This is one of the most forgiving bows that i have ever shot and there is virtually no handshock or noise when you shoot. The draw on the bow is very smooth from initioal pull to the rollover into the valley. The wall on any elite bow is amazing due to the drawstop pegs.

my husband and I both have elite bows. He shoots for an archery shop so weve shoot quite a few different bows.I find that my elite ice is the smoothest, quietest and fastest bow I have shot to date. We live in Ma. and had to order our bows from Pa.Not many dealers out there,as for the speed they are pretty much on the mark.
