Which Way To Go With New Bow?

Recommended Posts

Hey all...........thinking about pulling the trigger on a new bow for the upcoming season (I know a little late in the year, but it is what it is in my world).  Right now I am shooting an Elite GT500 which is a double cam bow.  Thinking about possibly going to a single cam instead of the double but not really sure if that is the route I want to take.  Looking for opinions from folk who shoot either and what they like don't like about the bow.  Not looking for any bow bashing, just what everyone likes and why.  Thanks!

Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?

 

I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO.

The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.

I was at the shop shooting bows last Friday. Wow do i have a choice but  I think you have to put the Triax and RX-1 and shoot both. I'm not a mathews guy but the new Triax shot great but so did the new Redwrx Carbon Rx-1 price is higher but shoots better then my Carbon Element. I'm thinking I will pull the trigger soon.

 

Musky add these to your list to shoot you will like them.

Excellent suggestions above! The Matthews is way too short axle to axle for me to even consider, but it sure shoots nice and smooth.

I'm going to get the RX-1 loved it. Had a few things come up but going to work on getting it by end of season or so. My Element can still do the job until then.

Add another for the RX-1's, in my case an Ultra. Hard to find new bows with longer ATAs. Love shooting it.
