Does anyone shoot one of these bows or have any experience with them. I got the chance to shoot a "hunter" last night. Man is that a nice shooter.

I love how at full draw it just feels like you hit a rock wall theres no give no matter how hard you pull.

They make very nice bows. I also like their back walls, their customer service and warranty policies are second-to-none, they just make a good quality product. They have a more curved neck on their grips than most other bows and I just can't get used to it- I don't like that. But, they make a great bow overall and I doubt too many people would have the same little hangup I have regarding the grip.

Yep- agreed. I looked into aftermarket trips for the Elites and supplies were pretty limited. I found a few, but options appeared to be limited. I decided to not drop the cash on a new bow this year, so I didn't pursue it too far, so there may be more options than I found in my quick search.

Right known, I'm still very happy with my z7, but would not be surprised if in the next year I decide to try out something form the elite line up.

Just wondering How long has this brand been around? I haven't herd much of them before I saw one last night.

They've been around since the mid-2000's, I think maybe 2005. They've a relatively new company, but they consistently get rave reviews on most or all of their products. They are a lot like Bowtech was a decade-and-a-half ago. I think they will stick around for a while- they make a solid product and have excellent support and service. Not sure if others agree about the longevity prediction, but that's my guess.

i agree with scoot! my local mathews pro shop also carries Elite! they are Unique looking, and shoot great! their bow was on the cover of the 2010 Sure-lok Sights calendar i believe!

I see that Wildlife Pursuit is sponsored by them. I've shot only one but it seemed nice but it was 2 inches too long for me but it was still nice. I did see that one of them when shooting 3D he was shooting a Mathew's.

I bought an Elite Synergy back in 2007....It was an amazing shooter. It had that nice stiff back wall to it, pretty smooth draw, and was quicker than all get out. The only down side I had with mine was it was a tad heavy, but it wasn't enough to bother me to much. If I hadn't got it stolen out of my truck 2 years ago I would probably still be shooting it. Kevin Strothers was the man behinf the technology when Elite first hit the market...He left Bowtech, and went to Elite(might have started Elite, then sold it). He left them after a couple years, and went on to start Strothers Archery, which makes some amazing bows as well. The man has knowledge when it comes to archery equipment!!!

I almost bought an Elite Pure for this year. That bow has a butter smooth draw cycle. It's so smooth, I can set the poundage up at least five pounds higher than what I've been shooting the past few years- it draws that dang nice!

You should draw my eZ7!

Elite Archery sold to Elite Outdoors in 2009. Since then, they've come out with some great bows. Some of the best on the market. I agree with Scoot, I think we'll be seeing them for awhile.

I bought a Elite Archery GT 500 last year and Like it a lot. It does ake some getting used to with the grip, but it pulls smooth, holds tight, and shoots great. They are a sharp looking bow too, which is always nice on the eyes!

The Mankato Scheels is now carrying them, and they are some sweet bows, great shooters and giving mathews and hoyt a run for their money. Stop down there some time, Brian and dan are more then helpful. Great place.

I got a new Elite Pure this year and like it so far. Like Scoot said, the grip was a little different than my Bowtech and took some time to figure out how to get a good consistent grip on the bow. The draw is super smooth. I'm pulling about 67 pounds and it feels lighter than my bowtech that was at about 62. There is just a little bit of hand shock compared to my Commander but that doesn't mean too much. That commander had zero. The back wall it solid and the speed is good. I would definitely buy another one.

    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
