  • I Hate to bring this up again!!

    I know this has been talked about before but I've seen it go both ways. So I'm looking for a clear answer to the Ebay bows and whether or not they are going to have a warranty. So if someone can throw me a bone and give me a link to the answer to this question or if someone from Elite could possibly answer it again I'd appreciate it. I'm really about to pull the trigger on one of these Z's since theres none to be found here or on AT lately. I can't imagine they wouldn't be warrantied since they are in fact Elite z28's and either way there going to end up in the used bow market at some point were if they aren't warrantied someone is goin to get scr#@ed. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks

    I beileve I heard that if the serial number has not been registered by Elite then NO. You can get that serial number and call Elite and they can check it out before you buy it

      X2 - I originally started a thread about all of the bows on eBay. There were emails sent to and from Elite's customer service and the last word was that they would not be covered unless Elite had the serial number in their database. I believe a lot of those z28s on eBay were purchased directly from G5 rather than Elite. Ask for a serial number and call Elite before buying one if you're concerned. You'll notice that some of the sellers are now advertising their own warranty with the bow instead of a manufacturer's warranty. Either way, they are still a good deal IMO.

        Not trying to talk you out of anything but there were a couple of Z's for sale on AT over the weekend and at least one still for sale that I saw this morning. But good advice here on the serial #'s from the ebay bows. I'd check before committing to those.

          I saw that too. Wideback had a super nice reverse AT Z28 on there.

              Why would you even buy one of those when you can own a bow used and autographed by a legend? The most prolific bowhunter in the entire state of Utah.....killer of entire Sasquatch families and the illusive Utah Walrus

                Agree....I have a feeling Pete will snag that bow in the final seconds of the auction though.

                    Alredy saw it buddy, if it were a 70lb ap version it would be mine!! I just talked to Elite, they asked who the seller was and when I told them they said those are not being built by Elite and will not be warrantied. Only way to know if your getting one of those bows is to call and get serial number checked! I guess maybe these sales can't be stopped but I can see some Elite customers gettin burned on this deal!

                      Now that these bows are in circulation it puts doubt on all secondhand Elite bows being covered by Elites transferable warranty. It will be a case of checking the serial number on all secondhand Elites before handing over any money.

                        Yeah I can definatly see Elites side of it, sounds like these bows are bein sold out from under them. If they don't put a stop to it though I don't understand how they can turn these bows away when the buyer thinks he or she is buying an Elite bow.

                          I would have no issue buying a brand new Elite for $460 TYD without a warranty. I've owned almost 30 Elite's from 2006 and most of them were used prior to the lifetime warranty being established. I have never once had to use the warranty. You can bet if it was any other bow manufacture there would be no warranty new or used at all. I guess all the hesitation is due to the fact that Elite is the only company that offers a transferrable warranty and people can't get it. Its still a great deal you're getting here fellas. Just another point of view.

                            I would rather buy a used Elite, Warrantied bow that is in good condition than to buy a new Non Elite Warrantied bow that has been misrepresented as having an Elite Warranty! That may sound crazy to some, but I hate to promote the sale of false advertisement. When you buy new unwarrantied Elite bow even at that price, the used value of that bow has to be less than one with a warranty and the day it shows up at your door step, it is a used bow. Just my thoughts!

                              I hear you, gettin scr#$ed may have been an overstatment it is still a good deal.But, if it were the difference between payin 600 for one with the warranty and 460 for one without I wouldn't even ask about the warranty. I've seen them in the 3's here lately, and for that I'd lean torwards a warranty. I've owned four so far and I have used the warranty but honestly I just called and told them my issue and got parts sent to me without any question of my serial number or were it came from. With that bein said they build a touph enouph product that the used ones I've bought have been as nice as the new ones I've bought so given the choice I'd like to have the warranty.
