    Default Will you stick with Elite or got to Strother?

    Not trying to stir the pot but just wondering what current Elite shooters think? I've got an Elite XLR now but wondering what to do next year.

    My gut reaction would be to follow the designer since I like these bows so much. Please don't turn this into an AT bash fest.

    Default Im sure both will be good bows

    I would say check out both and buy the bow that feels best.

    We should not be comparing these because there plenty of good brands of bows out there on the market.

    Just like I tell everyone. Find the bow that works best for you and buy it.

    Im 100% happy with my GT500 right now and Im not looking for another bow.

    right now, I will probably stick with neither, but I am very anxious to see what the experts think about Strother and how things stand a year out from the launch date.

    When I'm ready for a new bow I'll shoot both and then decide.

    Great responses here. No fanboyisms....is that a word?

    Try them and buy what you like not what anyone else says is the best.

    I'm very happy with my XLR and my GT. I can't see myself changing, Strother or any other bow.

    I'm going to wait and see what happens myself. If things seem to be going well in a year, I'll probably sign on as a Strother Archery dealer.

    yeah, now that Kevin put his name on it, I think he's serious about this venture. Be real interested in seeing where they are at on the map 500 days from today.
