    Default amateur answer review

    Shot the Answer again and thought I better get a few words on it here. The draw is just like the Hunter IMO, maybe a tad smoother, not as smooth as the Z, but no hump like the Z. It holds rock solid on target with that concrete back wall. Great let off and very comfy.

    On the shot it was very quiet. Yes, as those crazy Texans said, it's as quiet as the Hunter. You could definately see that it's got some giddyup. There was no kick at the shot to the left, like the 2011s, and stayed on target. The only thing negative I noticed was a little vibration in the riser. This was with an outfitted bow too. The first things I do is put some string silencers on it and replace the string stop with a softer one.

    Elite made the perfect hunting bow in the Answer IMO. So......Ninja(so the wife don't notice)......or Max 1.................
    I hope that someday we will be able to put away our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.

    One last note, there was a little lean, but the cable guard was not adjusted in any way as to prohibit it.

    You might try that. It made a huge different.

    That was with no stab.
    Without naming the shop, they don't know much about tuning Elites. I just order, pick up, and do my own thing.

    I think I'll have to twist mine up to makeup for the slightly long draw, and pick up a few #'s of weight. I hope my 60# ends up 62#+ and kills any vibe that might be there!

    Thanks for the review buddy.

    Thanks for the tip TCF

    I keep reading out of the box reviews of this bow running long on DL and DW. Some as high as 65#...

    I am not sure how some of these things are being measured. Most of our draw lengths are 1/8" long, sometimes maybe a 1/16th more. We ship the bows at about 2 pounds over. This seems to keep us in a safe place for the variety of ways people check things.

    Kinda like chronies not everyone is the same. I can weigh my bow with three different scales and get three different numbers. My scale at home weighs my York plate weight which are supposedly 75 at 76lbs. I take those same weights put them on the wife's scale they show 73lbs, if I would take them to my doctors office I bet they would read 90.lol

    Draw Lengths could easily be the same I do a fair amount of wood working and have two tapes I like to use but whatever tape I start with on a project I use during the whole thing or results can be catastrophic. Not to mention you can easily compress the draw stops on a drawboard and over draw the bow.

    Honestly in a perfect world we would all have load cells that are certified by the bureau of weights and measures, but that just isn't the case.

    Your wifes scale is only two pounds light? Weird cause mine is way off, I haven't gained any weight since we were married 30 yrs ago.
