Hornet if your lucky enough to have a friend and coach such as Dean Pridgean you got to listen! I shot longer axle bows quite well before. I dont hold a bow near as well as I once did either.

Not to take anything away from Dean....but I do and several of them.

I shoot longer axle bows well also....and always have. BUT that doesn't mean that the bow is going to be more forgiving for you just because it's longer and has more bh. My PE with 3000 was forgiving....but not as forgiving as the same bow with 2000s and I sure don't shoot it as well as the 35.5" with a 7.25" bh bow I am shooting now that I sold the PE to buy.

I realize this and I can order some 2000 limbs. Were going to split the cables and shoot through like Dean did on his 2005 model. Good thing about once you get the risor you can do some swapping. Gotta admit the Pro elite a fine feeling bow. I have always shot longer axle bow real well in the past. I hope I like the cam and half.

The old mans 73 years old and I doubt I could beat him on the field range or indoor. Maybe indoor! Something to be said for old school mentality. They sure keep it simple.

The ProElite is a tried and true classic.

I'm keeping mine for the forseeable future.

I wouldn't mind having a Contender, but it will be a while before the penny jar gets that full.

I am young but have that same mentality.....you all make things WAY harder then they are.

I loved my PE and if I hadn't bought the bow I bought last spring to hunt with I would probably have 3 of them right now with 2000s and spirals on them. Instead I have 2 Katera XLs.

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 LOOKING RIG FOR SURE !!!

I had one of those in the Inferno color...slap some 2000 limbs and spirals on that baby and let her eat !!!

personally I like my UltraElite better, but my Pro was a shooter alright.

Good luck with her Dan

Well I got two of these Pro Elites now. Time to get them tuned and then work on tuning the archer!

Hey Dan,
Tony's got a 40" target model prototype coming from New Breed, you'll have to shoot it and see what you think. :wink:

Love that Hoyt model and color combo
