    Question hypothetically speaking...

    IF Kevin Strother came back to Elite as a designer under Pete's direction, would you still shoot Elite bows?

    If that hypothetical would work harmoniously and for the long term, I can't think of a reason to shoot amything other than an Elite. The best company working positively with very arguably the best designer should yield the best product on the market.

    Because Slippy lives to stir the pot. He is using the biggest stick he can think of on this one. This hypothetical has a snowball's chance in...... of actually happenng.

    But if he were then I would be done with Elite at that point.

    ouch...

    If a bow is designed well, it tunes well, shoots good, feels great, and the company takes care of it's customers...I'll shoot it.

    Start deviating too far from the above...and it gets risky. Elite seems to have all of the above. I know Bowtech is all of the above BUT caring about customers (so I read on the forums). I have yet to have an issue so far, so my fingers are crossed.

    I dont know either of them personally ... But I cant see that Happening ..... hypothecally tho .... since I shoot a new(er) Elite (2011 Pure) and have shot the old Elites ... have shot a Strothers and have shot a K&K ... and I not a fan of the K&K with quad limbs (I have shot Hoyts as well) however it still feels like a great bow in my hand ,that said.. I firmly believe that Kevin is one of the best Innovators/designers on the planet and If the planets were to align and **** frooze over and Pigs grew wings and the sky turned purple all in the same day and Kevin went to work at Elite designing and building bows ... Unless there was drastic change I would continue to shoot them exclusivly

    Have to agree with Dusty on this one. No more support for KS from me. Forget the small 'bugs' that alway seem to be there on his new models, they usually still are good bows overall. My issue is with the attitude demonstrated to potential customers, and the open mud slinging everytime a company 'screws him over'. Right or wrong on my part, the way he conducts himself on the forums, etc, is not conducive to gaining my support...
