    Default GT500 or Answer????????

    All things being equal 30 inch draw and 60 pounds, which would be the smoothest, fastest, quietest bow for hunting/shooting??

    Never shot the Answer but heard it is smooth. With that said my 09 GT is smooth but on the stiff side all the way back to the wall.

    All things equal I liked the answer over my GT, but not enough for me to get rid of my gt500. To me the answer was smoother and quieter, with less vibration

    I promised myself not shoot the Answer since I figured I would have to buy one after all the reviews on here. Well I went back to IL in November and the dealer didn't have one to shoot. I thought today I would get the chance when I visited my Elite dealer here in So Cal but that didn't happen since he only has one Elite on the rack. I think he is on his way out as far as being an Elite dealer. So I will continue shooting my two GT's. I wish I could help with this issue but in my world if ain't broke don't fix it so off I go to shoot my GT!

    I like the GT500 as much as any bow. But the Answer is smoother in the back half of the draw. Speed mods though its a tad stiffer but still smooth. JMO!
    Not sure I could honestly choose between them on draw cycle alone. but add the difference in how quiet the answer is its a no contest to me.
    No ifs and or buts Just maybee.

    For now I'll keep using my GT . I just like it that much for hunting . Hasn't let me down yet . But the Answer is a fantastic bow for hunting .

    GT500 would be my choice over the answer, however my Pure still is the best bow I have ever shot.

    I think the Pure was only better than the Judge...I like it that little.

    Now with respect to the Answer, IMO, it's above the GT500 as the best overall Elite to date.
