    Well I went out yesterday and checked out a few shops in and around Albany...
    Got to shoot The Elite Envy... WOW..
    Nice bow...fast, draw cycle was good has a hard spot just before the valley but after 5 shot was no problem, Good hard wall, almost no vibration, and the bow was stripped
    It's just the price tag that hurts...:biggrin1:
    Also got out the Chrono...
    29"@ 60# 350gr arrow...319 fps so we figured take off the 2 nocks, loop, and drop 50 off the arrow...330-335 easy...

    Shot the Black ice again right behind it...
    still like this bow alot...
    same setup 29/60/350gr... 265fps ( 300gr arrow should yeild 280...)
    just thought I'd pass along some real world test results...
    I'll keep shopping and keep you updated...:biggrin1:

    Yeah the ticket on this bow said 29/60/300...338
    so it was close to stated
    we did some rough math and came up with 30/60/300..350 give or take

    Cool. Guess they got a new chrono :p

    There are few up for grabs in the AT Classifieds going for 800 - 900, you should see the Elite fanboys bumping the posts, its actually humorous.

    30" yes but if you shoot a 70lber at 350 grains it should be extremly close to a 60lber at 300gr
