    As posted on Elite's forum.

    One of our goals at Elite is to constantly develop new and innovative design possibilities in order to give our customers the very best products in the industry. Over the last year we have refined an innovative new cam design that was scheduled to be released in October of this year however; given the recent litigation with Darton and subsequent settlement, we have decided to release the new design now. As a result by the end of next week we will be shipping the new design. We will continue to fully warranty and service the current design as we move forward with the new design.

    -Elite Archery Management


    P.S. The ship date for left handed GT500’s will be June 1st.

    Be patient with me, not that familiar with Elite (yet :D ) Will these new cams be on all their bows? What is the difference, faster, smoother......:noidea: ?
     
  4. I like the way those look in black, good looking bows

    They will be on all bows shipped from the factory from now on. I have not drawn one yet, but I've spoken to Michael Deck who did some field testing with them and he says they make the current cams feel bad.

    The bows will be at the Bedford, Indiana IBO shoot next weekend.

    Main difference is that these are 2 track binaries. That means the string runs in one track the the cables share a track. What does that mean? Zero cam lean.... :thumb:

    good looking bow. I saw cams similar to that on AT a couple of weeks ago on a Bowzone, but theirs were still in the prototype stage.

    The bowzone bow had modules. I'm no cam engineer, but I've been told by one that is that modules probably will never work on a 2 track binary.:noidea:

    why would it matter if that track's modular or fixed?

    Im no engineer, but here is my best guess.....:D

    When both cables share a track, you can not machine a cable stop into the module for the cables to stop on. Therefore, you have to use draw stops the contact the limbs on the cams. Somehow, that fact makes modules difficult to incorporate...

    And I may be out in left field....:noidea:

    How will this impact the Fire I have on order, if at all? (i.e. specs, adjustment, etc.)

    If I read it right, you'll still get it, but all new bows from this point on will be the new models. I could be wrong though.....:wave:
