    Default Elite longer target bows

    Soooo are you guys at Elite been thinking about something to join the ranks of a C4 or Constitution? I'm mean they need competition as well. While I'm asking, do you think you will ever produce a non parallel limb bow?

    I would love to see a target specific set up, but not certain that it will need to be anything other than parallel limbs. I can shoot either one just as well as the other, but I do like the feedback of a traditional limb bow a little better.

    If that is what you want to call it. If the bow jumps forward slightly at the shot, it was good, if it is a bad shot on a traditional limb bow, I will feel it torque at the shot. Does any of that make sense?

    Yes I agree. But the arrow is on the way right? so what does it matter? I really like a bow that doesn't jump. so I can shoot as smooth as possible for a long period of time. If the bow is jumping around it wears me out and i get jumpy after awhile. If you can adjust while your shooting from shot to shot than I can see why you like a jumpy bow. But I really think you'll shoot better with a totally smooth No jump bow. Just my experience.

    For me, a little feedback let's me know if I did something wrong with my shot sequence. It helps me maintain good form. I know instantly if I did something unusual in my routine, and that is what accuracy is all about, doing the same thing constantly. For me, the only advantage to a parallel limb is the fact that it looks really cool.

    Okay you guys are too fast, just wanted to clarify what I'm agreeing to. Hand shock, can be a good thing at times

    Look at what Hoyt has done this year, The Vantage X7 and X8! I think they are around 41 ATA and 300-305fps (7 and 8" brace height). Thats a target bow for ya!
