  • Question about elite

    Over on AT everyone seems to think that becasue kevin left elite, that elite will crumble and be no more ... i hope not because i just bought my first elite and they are the best bows i have ever shot. what are your guys take on this ... do you think Elite will stand strong or crumble like old potatoe chips? I hope i am right in thinking 1 man leaving cant destroy a company but im still a little worried

    It is just a bunch of people speculating and none of us are prophets.
    Kevin is gone, that is for sure.
    Elite is a great company with some very capable people running it. They will be fine.

              Lots of good bow designers around

              My hopes is Pete gets the right person on his staff. Bowtech went right on and is still one of the top producers of bows today.

                +1. Look at bowtech. We will be alright. Besides there is always a chance that Kevin might come back to Elite.

                  They will do fine if they still strive for perfected excellence. I sincerely hope so.

                  Even Hoyt will do fine if they hire Kevin to update their cam system and ... incorporate binaries on split (quality laminated) limbed bows and centered string ?

                    Weather elite remains a strong company or not u still have 1 of the best bows ever made.
                    From what pete said 2010 is already designed. It might not be a big growing year, but sales shouldnt be hurt to much. If he doesnt pic the right r&d people 2011 and on is when we will see the demise of elite archery.

                      In 06 people on AT said Elite wont last thru the end of the year. Then in 07 when J2 came into the picture people on AT said Elite is done for sure now. Here it is 09 and Elite is selling more bows every year. I think Elite will be fine. I think thier customer base will change some as they are a little more geared toward the hunting aspect of archery.

                        Pete has made a commitment to be successful. The designer(s) he hired will be the best possible. At the end of the day, Elite will make a quality product and take care of it's customers. Elite won't be going away.

                          As far as I'm aware, Elite does not have a single person working for them who worked for them a year ago. They are a totally new company with the Elite name and logo. Whether or not they will get the rights to the two-track cam...who knows?

                          They are certainly an underdog. I wish them well. Pete seems like a stand-up kind of guy.

                              None of us are prophets but it certainly looks like Elite is on a strong financial foundation. I think we are all going to be pleasantly surprised in the next few months. Would I have preferred kevin with his brilliant design mind to stay with Elite, certainly. That didn't happen but one man does not carry a company.
