I really liked my Pulse, after some tweaking, tuning, and a few aftermarket additions it was a sweet shooter. Now with my Answer I know it needs a twist here and there, some aftermarket strings cables, in and out of the press and draw board multiple times to get it just so. BUT WHY? Why do we buy brand new bows and have to tweak, tune, and add higher quality aftermarket strings/cables and other accessories to achieve the advertised performance out of today's bows. I'm not talking getting just advertised speed here, but a lot of the time we have to do all this on a new bow, just to get it to shoot decent. I am not singling out Elite on this, ALL bow manufacturers are guilty of this. It's not realistic to expect the average archer or even hardcore hunter to have all the necessary tools for tuning these bows. Draw board, press that is approved by manufacture(good luck, they change that monthly), knowledge of timing,sync, cam lean. We can't rely on dealers because the manufacturers do a horrible job of screening them.
Most dealers have no idea what cam lean is, how to fix it. Most have no draw board, and still will tell you cam draw stop timing and cam sync is dead on because it comes from the factory that way. Why do we keep paying big bucks for bows that need even more money and time put into them to shoot right? Yes this is a rant, but imo opinion a **** justifiable one. It would be nice to see manufacturers either produce bows that are in tune and shooting lasers out of the box. If they can't accomplish this, how about screening dealers so the ones you have actually know how to tune a bow?
