  • Z-28 bows

    Well here it goes. I am going to be as factual as possible and not get into my anger. I was informed today that my order on the z28 will not come. To my understanding they will not send out the old style Z28 with or without cuda cams/revolution cams. The bow is the new style of Z28 which has a different riser, different cams and I am not even sure on the other stats but is definitely slower and no option of cuda cams. I am going to talk to Lonnie or Kristen tomorrow.

      Two things. Its slower. And now the draw length is more correct to specs which means its even more slower. I ordered a Z28 with cuda cams over a month ago. I was looking at an IBO of over 336 fps with the 8" brace height. The terms were accepted and payed in full. In my eyes the Z isnt improved actually I see it as a complete setback.

          Unfortunately I wont and I wont accept anything less than I ordered. I will lose speed with what I am shooting now as opposed to gaining some speed with brace height.

              I wanted the brace height with the speed. I allready have a bow with a 7.25" brace height.

                The bad thing is I have no way of testing out how the new Z fits and I get differing opinions on how the cams run, even contrary to how they fit me.

                  You were misinformed that the speed of an 08' Z 28 @ 27" would be 336 IBO?

                  The Z's ran about 3/16" long, this is why there is a new cam on the 09's, so they are exact on the draw.

                    Hi Kevin......no. IBO is all set at 70lb, 30" draw, 350 gr. arrow. I know this. When I say IBO it is with those standards.......I was not misinformed as you list the Z at 336. Sorry you misundertood something I stated.

                    On the draw length on the Z28 I shot how did a 27" draw fit me as I normally shoot at 26" draw? I have been confused about this from day one. Can you clarify this? It would be greatly appreciated. With the new Z would I shoot at 26" or 27" and what is the IBO?

                    By the way what are all of the specs including the weight of the new z?

                      I don't understand. I ordered a Z-cuda a month ago.

                      1. Cuda cam isn't available now?

                      2. I ordered a 26", will it arrive in 26"?

                        To my understanding............no.


                        But mabe your circumstances might be different, might want to call elite or your dealer.

                          Make that phone call, Elite has the best customer service I've seen it compares to custom shops I've delt with in the past.
                          I understand the brace height issue though and all I can say is soo many people need to have the latest and greatest that you will most likely start seeing mint condition 08 Z's for sale on a few different forums and E-bay.
                          Best of luck with it I'm sure something can be worked out.

                            The old Z was 27 to 30? If so in order for you to get the new cam at 26 then I guess it will be 26 to 30 now at least, or will they send you a Cuda bow instead of your Z? Guess we will wait and see.

                              you cold not get the old Z with Cuda Cams. to my understanding the new Z MIGHT become available to have Cuda cams on it, and to best of my knowledge there is not string specs for a Z with Cuda cams yet.
