  • New Fire Arrived

    After 11 weeks, she showed up yesterday (Red, 26", 50#) and I got more than I bargained for. I shoot an 05 Allegiance and an 06 Equalizer at 26", both 60#. I expected the Fire to have comparable speed to the Equalizer but expectations were for a smoother draw cycle. I shot all three at 53# with a 288 gr. Lightspeed and got the following:

    Allegiance 273
    Equalizer 283
    Fire 290

    The Fire was the hands over winner in every respect. Much easier to draw than the Equalizer, smoother than the Allegiance, had a better wall, and it was FASTER. After three rounds thru the Fire I was shooting it much better than I ever shot my 2007 Hoyt Proelite. This bow's a winner. I ordered a camo version before I left the shop (60#, 26") .

    Pics will come next week. I'm using a borrowed computer. Mine crashed two weeks ago.

    I'm one happy camper. It came in perfect. Good strings, etc. No problems whatsoever. THANKS Elite!

          Congrats and glad you like the bow. I shot a fire at our shop about a month ago, my draw is 29". I already have a regular xxl but shooting that fire caused me to order an xxl with the fire cams. Can't wait, oh and then I come across a good deal on an Aigil, somebody stop me. That makes 4 Elite's
