I don't know if anyone read my thread on along ATA vs short ATA bows and their accuarcy over on AT.
I read so many good points on longer ATA bows and I actually went out and bought a 04 Hoyt Protec with 37" ATA and 8 1/8" brace to see if it would help my long distance shooting.
To make a long story short, I shot this bow beside my Elite Aigil (Hunting set up) and shot out to 60 yards. I did notice the difference in peep angle but that was about it. My Aigil actually held and shot better! The performance of my Aigil allowed me to shoot a lower poundage and was so much more enjoyable to shoot.
This has caused me some grief.........I was once sold on the XL but now, with the release of the GTO, I can't see clearly which Elite will fit my needs. For me, the longer ATA issue has been addressed and found to be not a significant factor!
