    Default Really disappointed....

    Our shop got our first '08 Elite in today, the Synergy XT.....Horrible is all I can say. I work part time for this shop, and I had hopes of shooting one this year. Uhhh, no.

    I do want to say though, it does have some fine attributes. It is a SHARP looking bow, VERY quiet, very quick, and no hand shock/vibration at all. That's where it stops though. That thing pulls like a freight train, and this is the part I just could NOT believe.....

    BOTH CAMS ARE RUBBING THE INSIDE OF EACH LIMB!!! Please tell me we got one that is just somehow messed up, like the upper limb is in the lower pocket.....SOMETHING....Tell me they aren't really made this way....

    No, no one has called. We just got it in late this evening via the big brown truck. I believe he said he was going to call tomorrow, or maybe the rep was going to call him......I can't remember exactly what he said now....But the short of it is no...We got it after business hours.

    Believe me I see your point, and I am honestly not trying to stir up trouble, for anybody. I was just......surprised is all. For the record, he will be making contact, I just stumbled on this forum and thought I would post up....We got the bow in after business hours.

    I understand, but if I were you I wouldn't tell my boss I posted this online.

    Actually, there is alot more to say than horrible. How about nothing at all, untill someone figures out what happened. How about, can I get a RA.

    Here is a good question, How do you know how it shoots and draws? I don't believe I would draw a bow in that condition. And I for sure don't want a tech that would touching my equipment! If it pulls like a freight train, send it to me, I will replace the cummins in my Dodge with that Elite.

    Don't take this wrong, it is not a personal attack on you, but this should have been handled a little better. We are all adults and know that even Elite can make a mistake, what matters is how they, and you for that matter, handle this.

    Hmmm.... this is your very first post & you did not verify where you work & the location. If what you say is true, then tell us. Until then, it is hard to believe.
