Re: What bow brand do you shoot

As a fellow SHORT DRAW archer (26 1/2") I am well aware of the problem.

Wheel lean is a power cable streching problem, occurring slowly as the bow
is drawn. A lot of archers never become aware of the problem if the wheels
are tipped the same direction, and if the archer only shoots the bow occasionally, wheel lean will probably go unnoticed. I have a laser made by SPOT HOGG to detect wheel lean early. Steel cables help, as does the
new string cable material.

Wheel lean is one of the reasons I switched to Oneida. I traded wheel lean
for limb lean, so still had the basic problem. If you are shooting a 100 to 200
arrows a day, the problem can get to be quite annoying.

Good Luck and keep them in the middle. PPP

Now that I shoot a LDH, I have other problems to deal with.

Re: What bow brand do you shoot

Needed some work done under warranty on my Elite GT500.
It came back to me today and it is demonic fast!
Elite stood over the warranty and did the work.
I was firing at a foam layered target and the arrow was going straight through.
I am up around 308 ft per sec.
I cannot say enough in praise of Elite Archery.
I love the GT500 and will be staying with Elite.
They know how to look after customers like no other company.

Sounds like a winner. It's a great feeling these days to find a company that
is truly customer oriented. With the economy in the dumper, a lot of companies
are looking to cut expenses. Customer service is usually a victim.

Word of mouth helps spread the news as well as any.

Good luck and keep them in the middle.

[QUOTE=mnhntr;617280]It is a binary cam bow not a single cam. I would not own a single cam bow.[/QUOTE


Sounds interesting, I plan on taking a look next time I go to the big city
