Elite XLR opinions?
I'm looking at getting another target bow and was wondering about the Elite XLR. Pro's and con's. How does the draw cycle compare to a Pro/Ultra Elite with Spirals/cam and 1/2?
Any of you guys shoot one?Language was invented to satisfy mans deep need to complain

I was alittle scared of the big brace height. Was wanting something alittle closer to 7". It IBOs great for BH that big. I just don't want to lose performance in regards to speed shooting 3d.
I shoot ASA not IBO so I'd like to get 280-285 fps pulling 63-63 pounds.
I got a great staff shooter offer from the local pro shop and was just wanting some info.
Thanks!!Language was invented to satisfy mans deep need to complain

I am shooting an Elite XLR with the 28.5" Cuda cam for my 3-D bow....Best bow I have owned to date for 3-D! And I have gone thru alot of different bows thru the years for 3-D!
Mine is 60# and shooting right at 280-282fps with an arrow that weighs 343g
Personally I dont think the Cuda cam is all that more aggressive than the Revolution cam. I also have an Elite Z-28 at 60# with the 28.5" Revolution cam.
Not the fastest bow in the world, but it holds very nice and its very forgiving with a 8 3/8" brace height!2009 Elite XLR Ninja

I shoot the XLR with a 29 in draw and weight at 61.25 lbs. This is by far the best bow I have shot for 3d. It aims very well and is a pleasure to draw. I have not shot the cuda cam so cannot tell you the difference between that and the revolution cam regarding draw cycle. I have been told the cuda is a little quicker, which should get you the speed you are wanting. If you have any questions shoot me a PM and I will try to help you anyway I can.
