    Patents most the time take three years or more. You may be waiting for quite awhile

        +1 If you buy an elite now it will still be a great bow when things are settled no matter what happens with the patent...

          I agree. Whoever has the patent wont make a difference in the bows performance.

                  Maybe he doesn't want to support a company that didn't truly invent the system. I'm not saying Kevin didn't invent them (and I REALLY hope he gets the patent) but I won't buy any 2 track binary from any company until the patent is awarded or licensing is paid.

                      Why?

                      [QUOTE=McLuvin;220788]Why is that???[/QUOT

                      I don't want to support a company that uses technology that it didn't develop or pay to use. Just that simple.

Often when 2 or more people/companies are or were using the same design in the same time frame often the company not granted the patent is still allowed to use the design. So even after the patent is granted there may be several companies still using it and not paying. Go buy the bow. You'll love it!!!!!
                        I may be wrong but I think that someone will be awarded the patent and all others will be forced to stop using it or pay royalties. Besides, I actually prefer my GTO to any 2 track system that I've tried so far so why change? Maybe by next year the 2 track will be improved and I will have to have one.

                          I think you missed my point. If several companies end up legally using the patent than I would consider a bow from any of them whether they were granted rights or paid for them. Till then, I'm not paying for their legal fees.

                              One of our R&D guys has 30+ patents. None of them took anywhere close to 3 years.
