Although the low brace speed bows get alot of attention they do NOT sell very well, the last thing EO needs right now is to come out with a short brace speedbow and have it sell less than 100 units. I admit it would be fun to be at the top of the heap on this but it would be a massive outlay of cash for devolpment, then models, and finally finished bows and there would very likely be very little return on the investment.

I am a midget, I have a 27 inch draw. I would love to see a Elite with a 6 inch brace height. I think guys with smaller draws can shoot 6 inch brace height and get away with it. I used to shoot a Hoyt Super-tec (6-inch bh) and loved it.
agreed Corey! developmental cost is not what you think with some of todays technology and engineering. not only would alot of short draw archers get them, admittedly or not we all have some speed freak in us!
why are some of you guys scared of bows shooting faster? i guess i don't understand. why do some think their is going to be a "price to pay" or "no shootability" dang near everybow put out is better than the last.
please give me some good reasons to not make a speed bow. and don't give me this crap of 6" bh will cut your wrist off, or its to harsh, try pull it back cold, etc.
I'll get a post at least,
The reason is: Kevin is scared he can't beat the speed of other bows out right now. He can't make a 6"bh bow do 360fps. He has tried and he doesn't have it in him. Rather than be embarrassed he prefers to avoid the sub 7"bh bow category. Right Kevin?
Just good ribbing, in the past if you challenged him and said he can't he posted up, we'll see.
