I read an article in Petersens bowhunting on the Gt 500. Its one of thier bow reviews and it said Elite is using 3 layer laminated gordon composite limbs. Then on the side it has all the specs and comments and there it said 13" Gordon composite limbs. I just sold my bow looking for another but Im not sure if it will be an Elite. I never thought I'd say that a year and a half ago. Is this old news that is common knowledge now or what? Just trying to decide which bow to buy and wieghing all factors. I am in no means starting b.s. or bashing, Eilite has been a great company to work with that makes a great product.
