  • Elite longer target bows

    Soooo are you guys at Elite been thinking about something to join the ranks of a C4 or Constitution? I'm mean they need competition as well. While I'm asking, do you think you will ever produce a non parallel limb bow?

    I would love to see a target specific set up, but not certain that it will need to be anything other than parallel limbs. I can shoot either one just as well as the other, but I do like the feedback of a traditional limb bow a little better.

          Okay you guys are too fast, just wanted to clarify what I'm agreeing to. Hand shock, can be a good thing at times

            Maybe but I have noticed that the more shock the more i twich.
            if the bow is smooth. then Im smoother. Just me probably.

              If that is what you want to call it. If the bow jumps forward slightly at the shot, it was good, if it is a bad shot on a traditional limb bow, I will feel it torque at the shot. Does any of that make sense?

                Yes I agree. But the arrow is on the way right? so what does it matter? I really like a bow that doesn't jump. so I can shoot as smooth as possible for a long period of time. If the bow is jumping around it wears me out and i get jumpy after awhile. If you can adjust while your shooting from shot to shot than I can see why you like a jumpy bow. But I really think you'll shoot better with a totally smooth No jump bow. Just my experience.

                  Look at what Hoyt has done this year, The Vantage X7 and X8! I think they are around 41 ATA and 300-305fps (7 and 8" brace height). Thats a target bow for ya!

                    For me, a little feedback let's me know if I did something wrong with my shot sequence. It helps me maintain good form. I know instantly if I did something unusual in my routine, and that is what accuracy is all about, doing the same thing constantly. For me, the only advantage to a parallel limb is the fact that it looks really cool.

                      Couldn't have said it better, I agree 100%. That's why I still shoot "normal" limbs for when I want real accuracy

                          And you are correct, especially if you shoot it at a controled speed. 280 seems to be about right for the best accuracy on most bows. Huh, maybe ASA is on to something.
