View Full Version : Elite's first kill
As some of you know I bought my first Eilte last week (2007 Synergy). I bought it used from one of the ther members of the forum as the closest dealer in Florida is 250 miles away and didn't really want to wait five or six weeks for a new GTO.
I finally got it set up and tuned last week, took it to our camp this past weekend and killed an eighty pound sow hog with it. The is first of many kills to come for this bow. Sorry no pics as this is so common for us (I take the better part of one hundred hogs a year with a bow). I have been a long time Mathews shooter and during our hunting season (roughly four months) this year I took seven deer, thirty four hogs and two turkeys with my Drenalin.
I am extremely impressed with the speed and quality of this bow!

welcome aboard the elite family so did it catch it if it could ?
It is one **** of a blast with the numbers of hogs we have here. Some of you may know Breedlove90 from Mathews and AT. He was down last weekend, I spent most of the time playing guide for him. He killed two Friday night and another Saturday evening. We had a blast.
I tell people I take close to a hundred each year and they think I am full of it. Four to five a weekend is not uncommon.

Thanks for the setting me straight about not owning elite because I have a bunch of there bows. As for mathews I have shot a bunch of them and feel they don't live up to ther hype.Just my opinion!! Look at the elites, I have never seen an ad in a magazine or anywere for that matter, and they are a bad mama jama bow. Mathews has six pages ads in every magazine you look at. Its own t.v. show and what not. 79.00 of the price you pay for your mathews bow goes to pay for what matt spends on advertising. I would rather spend my money on a quality product than advertising for the company. Looks like elite is doing pretty well by word of mouth!! eventually they will have to get into the game and advertise. If you like the mathews than thats your right. I just don't think they live up to all the hype!!!

It would be nice to see bow owners agree that as long as we're all shooting bows---we are all ARCHERS,brands be damned.:nono::beehive:
