    Alphaelite sure felt good the other day shooting it. Fuel Cam.

    Contender just didnt do it for me. I could most likely get use to it.

    I might find an elite pro for 3d.

    Default % let off?

    Daniel,
    Now do you shoot the BT, button, or Finger release with this bow? What % let off you like to shoot outdoors? I have on order a bow with 65% cams but I'm not sure if I'll like it because the one I shot had 80% let off on it. But it was hard to get it to aim while pulling with my BT release so I went with the 65% hoping this will help hold the pin down when pulling?
    That is an awesome looking bow right there!!

    I shoot a thumb trigger and prefer 65% let off.

    I use to buy into all the short bow rage, then I shot my first target bow with a long ATA and wonder how I ever hit anything with a short bows.

    Even my hunting bow has a 37" ATA now. I don't think I'll ever shoot anything shorter even though I have a AlphaElite pulling on my purse strings right now, I believe those spec out at 36 3/4 ATA with a number two fuel cam.

    I notice that as I get older I just dont hold as well. Just giving this long axle a try and see if groups tighten. I know years ago with the Rival Pro if I didnt make the best shot, I was often still there. I think those with fantastic form and young muscles can shoot those 36" bows well. I shot the Elite GT500 well in Senior pros but often found when I did make a mistake it was costly.

    Often times its just the little things that make a difference.

    Looking forward to working with you Dan.Kind of what I'm trying to tell you in above Quote is that the bow has to be as good as the shooter and that bow is proven time and time again.I have an old saying that I live by......
    "A $1000 bow in the hands of a nickel's worth of talent won't win anything"
    so you,me or anybody has to man-up and pull those good scores out.

    Nice bow Dan

    What poundage are you going to pull, and I would think it will be shooting GTs?

    What do you or Hornet think about the Vantage Elite plus as a 3D and Field bow in comparison to others that are available?

    Bow going to be for indoor so most likely 60lbs. Ill be shooting triple XXX's

    Got another Pro Elite coming with Spirals cams and 2000 limbs for 3d.

    Jame Jamison here loves the Ultra Elite with 3000 limbs. He a top 3d pro who loves his Hoyts.

    Many like the Vantage bows as well. I like the shoot through systems for target.
