I dont know either of them personally ... But I cant see that Happening ..... hypothecally tho .... since I shoot a new(er) Elite (2011 Pure) and have shot the old Elites ... have shot a Strothers and have shot a K&K ... and I not a fan of the K&K with quad limbs (I have shot Hoyts as well) however it still feels like a great bow in my hand ,that said.. I firmly believe that Kevin is one of the best Innovators/designers on the planet and If the planets were to align and **** frooze over and Pigs grew wings and the sky turned purple all in the same day and Kevin went to work at Elite designing and building bows ... Unless there was drastic change I would continue to shoot them exclusivly
Well, nothing frozen, no flying swine, but this almost fits the bill!!!
I would as long as the bow met my requirements. To be honest when I first started shooting bows I could not have told you who had designed my bows and neither could half of the people that I knew could either. I have heard people say over and over again that Kevin needs to just stick to what he is good at and that is designing bows and I for one agree, where all the drama really started with Kevin (IMO) is when he tried to be designer/owner. It is too much for anybody that's why I believe that Mathews,Bowtech,Hoyte,Elite and others that are successful have a design team separate from ownership. Too much info is too public and I think we as archers get too caught up in that information.
And yes I could have given a YES/NO answer but didn't. You stirred the pot Chippy so if my answered isn't to your liking and it somehow got under your skin then all the better.

He may be a good designer but it's not like he is a Fred Bear or something he is just a good designer. Most come with a lot of baggage the way he moves from company to company. Seem like they up with him for awhile then it just is not worth the aggravation or something.
