  • I bought a lemon and now need some help.

    My son just turned 15 and wanted to get into archery and for his birthday we got him a new bow, So I then wanted to get back into shooting. It has been 12 years since i had a bow, so I did some research looked around and found a nice Elite Z-28 ready to go. My bad, I bought it used because I could not afford a new elite bow. it was all set up sights and rest, I took bow in to local shop to get a d loop and found out both cams were bent and top limb is cracked. I can guess how it happened but don't want to think about it. Any way I spent $400 on a bow that is pretty much good for a paper weight. Does anybody have any cams, limbs that are good that they can sell cheap? Can anyone help me out or tell what should I do. There is a 3-d shoot my son and I want to go to in May and hope I can get it fixed by then. Thanks for any advice or help

    Not sure if the warranty will still apply on an apparent dryfire or not. I would talk with customer service first before doing anything else.

      I would be talking to the person I bought it from! Did you buy online?

        If you bought the bow on E bay or AT you can get your money back.
        Don't let it slide. $400.00 is $400.00!!!

            Yeah don't drop that as lesson learned. I'd be doing whatever you can to get the money back.

              sorry for the delete

              I have a set of 6 layer Barnsdale limbs, 135 deflection (60lb on a Z)(fall leaf camo) that will get you started back to having a Great bow.

              check the axles also. roll those on a piece of glass and listen for a thunk thunk sound. ( or not rolling smoothly)

                    Thought so. He called me and I dont have what you need. but call elite if you can tomorrow. they are not crazy on rev cams. limbs you might find in the classifieds. maybe cams too.

                      do i have to specify what weight for cams or limbs or both ? or if an ad says rev cams for z28 that is all I need ?

                        Is the draw length correct for you with these cams?

                          Pm me your number. Im heading to Hermiston Saturday maybe we can hook up so I can see what it needs. Any Rev cam for the GT500 even will work. If the draw length fits.

                              Looks like he needs 7's. He has a WTB ad in the classies.
