I was at my local shop shooting my GT500 last night and was next to an employee of the shop who was shooting a Switchback and a Z7. His buddy was shooting an AM32 and was demoing an Alphaburner. We started BS'ing and they were commenting on the draw and back wall of the Alphaburner compared to the AM32 and the Z7. I asked them if either had shot an Elite bow, they said no. I let them shoot the GT500 and these were the comments:
The back wall is awesome
The draw is smooth
Is this really pulling 72 pounds
It's really quite
It's pretty fast
The grip feels great
I think overall they were pretty impressed with it. The shop owner even came over to check it out and liked it.
I know how we all feel about our Elite bows but I think soon enough Elite will become recognized on a bigger scale as one of the top 3 companies as they grow in popularity.
