If you had $500 to burn would you buy a used Elite or buy some goodies for your bow. I'm stuck I have enough stuff to set up another bow for hunting & my GT is set up for 3-D. What to do?

Since I'm a Lefty a used Elite isn't an option (unless I found a very rare LH Synergy) since I already have a GT500. $500 would outfit mine nicely for 3D. Sorry I realize I didn't really answer your question, however in your case I'd get a used Elite.

That pretty well answers it Rev.
Looks like a new hunting bow in the near future.:thumb:

I'd buy a really nice used Z28 with that $500. 2009 would be my choice with the ultra smooth Z cams.

Yep, I would be looking for a Z28 to go with my XLR. Hopefully it is in my future.:)

Either save $250 more and get a Judge or buy a used short brace Energy and use the rest of the money on arrows or accessories.

I myself think that if you can't figure out what to do then send the money to me and see what I do with it. JUST KIDDING but if... NO really I'm just kidding . My real answer is this buy the best accessories on the market such as the new Stokerized system The Nucleus and a matching center stabilizer. You have the rest of the year to save up mad money for another hunting bow but setting up your 3-D or target bow with the best is usually something that gets put off because of the well I already have this and it'll probably do for another year , syndrome. But then that is just my thoughts on it.

I would have to agree.

now the question is which one?? good luck, too many good Elite rigs to choose from.

You guys are great!! It's still hard to choose! I'm leaning to a Z28 for just hunting but some very nice accessories for the GT would be nice as well. I can get a Judge for cost, but I like saying Z28!!! I'm having a hard time with this one I'm going have to pray real hard!!!

I heard him say Z28!


if you didn't hear HIM say that just blame me. :D

500-525 should get a good slightly used 09 Z28, i see the XLR's going for that.

Short brace height Energy for me. Everyone talks (T10PT) so highly of this bow I would like to take it for a test drive

That is a nice looking bow too. Is that all they are asking for that Z28 at the Zone???

I hearing Z28 loud & clear, it's starting to feel good real good. I'm just waiting on the money it should be by Monday. Then it will be gone just that fast.

Does that mean that collection plate Sunday turns into bow money Monday? J/K of course. You won't regret the Z28 one bit. That is, unless you ever get a chance to shoot the ENERGY!!!

DustyRx,

That was a good one!! I pastored one church that I had a few people who gave me money every week on top of my salary. I sure wish I had them at my new church.

Rev,
I just purchased a used 09 Z28 29"@64# with Stage1 strings and supertuned at FuryX in August, less than a year old for $500 TYD. Looks like it just came off the shop rack.

Z28 sounds real good does'nt it.
