  • When ordering a new bow

    Do the Elites come timed and set at the draw length you specify.

    Some pro shops in my area have no draw boards.

    Yes, your new elite will come in time and to your DL, "SUPER" tuning rarley yields more than 3 or so fps on an out of the box elite

      I check all of mine on the drawboard and they are usually really close. My XLR was spot on but realize that as the bow is used and the strings/cables settle that they will need to be checked on occasion. If your gonna stay with this line for any length of time your probably going to want to put a drawboard together. They are really simple to build and quite handy, their are numerous designs on this site. I personally think that supertuning is overated.

        When I got mine out of the box, it hit IBO. so im assuming it came timed. Michael took the time to check and recheck timing and do whatever he needed to do, But im pretty sure it came out the box almost perfect.

        DB,

        there have been many posts on how to make a draw board, and I think it can be done for fairly cheap.

          If you get through Scottie/PA, he will check timing, DL and let off. 100% satisified with his service.

            Why don't they have draw boards?

            Every bow that comes in my shop, regardless of the brand or cam system ends up on the draw board. Draw boards make everything easier. Checking poundage, checking draw length, setting cam timing, setting single cam orientations, installing drop away rests and the list goes on.

            Building one isn't rocket science and it costs less than $50. I've seen shops with much more expensive tools with far fewer uses.

                You aren't a shop owner DB and just because you never used one on your Hoyt or Mathews doesn't mean it wouldnt have made working on one easier.

                For a shop owner, it makes perfect sense when working on bows. I can draw the bow on the board and lock it. From there I can get the exact draw length at the appropriate let-off, I can nock an arrow and mark it for cutting, I can let the bow down a couple inches and install a drop away properly, I can set draw stops precisely and I can set timing withought having someone else draw the bow and look at it. From my standpoint, I wouldn't have a shop without one. From a shooters standpoint, if my shop had one, I might not.

                    Totally agree with this... draw board lets you see whats going on with your bow without taking a chance on someone else holding it at full draw.

                      That wasn't intended to be an OUCH statement.

                      I never used a draw board either before I owned a shop. Never heard of one to be honest. You can set up a bow without one. It isn't necessary to have one. My point is that when you own a shop, and you get in numerous bows to tune, it is a lot easier to use a draw board. Just like having 6 bitzenbergers on a spinning board. It isn't necessary, but it sure helps when you have 5 or 6 dozen arrows to fletch.

                        I meant you didn't have to yell at the poor guy, thats all.

                        And I wouldn't know a draw board from an ironing board to be honest. But don't yell at me. Matter fact, I don't even know if any of the local shops have one. They do have bow presses, that I do know.

                          Yelling is done in all CAPS. I'm not yelling at anyone. Just sharing my experience.

                            Most my buddys have a hooter Shooter and can use it. Do you have a Hooter Shooter. Want to find tune you best find those bad arrows first.
                            Ill have a draw board and will make sure the shops will also.

                              If I were a hooter shooter, then I would tune with one. However, I'm a human and far from being able to repeat what the hooter shooter does. Human error is what makes archery challenging. Tuning with a hooter shooter means very little once you put the bow back into the hands of the shooter.
