So what you're saying is that there aren't any North American animals that stand a chance..... Right?

I'm looking for a E32, 30" draw 70#, if anybody has one they want to sell. I bought the E35, and my son loves it but he wants a shorter Axle to Axle.

Speed isn't going to help you much with a deer jumping a string, but quiet sure will. The E-32 is dead quiet

GT 500 60# 29.5 draw 304 FPS

regardless of marketed IBO speeds Elites are not that much slower than others. Most bow companies fudge the numbers a little and their bows draw a little longer than the " that they say they are. My energy 32 only shot 7FPS slower than my Bowtech insanity(355IBO) with the same arrow, and at 27.5'' both bows were over 300fps through the chrono

2013 Elite Hunter...29.5" @ 70lbs i believe was around 290 fps back when i got it. I only shot it through chrono when i had it set up originally so i can't remember the exact speed. I don't pay much attention to speeds. All i know is any of them are fast enough to blow through an animal and my Elite is the smoothest best draw cycle i've ever owned. I love their bows.

I am not a speed freak but I do like a little pep with a combination of smooth. Actual 300-305 ish is a perfect speed to me. Those nut breaking bows like the Omen, DNA or any of the 5" brace height Monsters (XLR8 I think) don't do anything for me. If they are gonna break 400 it better be a smooth draw with a solid back wall and it better not bust my forearm every shot.. Id rather shoot a Switchback XT than that.
PSE is king of speed and they had to cheat in my opinion to get the new bow to 370 (5.75 brace height) I don't like them.

I have the PSE evo running 310+ and it is CAKE to shoot and hold. I haven't shot a DNA but based on the same bow... I'm really surprised you call it a "nut buster". I wont sell this bow... I'll just keep it as a back up if I want to try something new.

If you hitting your forearm it is because your bow is set too long or your form is bad. don't blame the bow lol.

If elite would get a 70lb bow running 300+ with hunting gear I would be VERY VERY interested... I'm not sure I'm ready to go to a 80lb bow yet

Love my Pulse. Smooth easy draw, solid backwall, can hold forever with a bad shoulder. I have tried to find others than make me want to get rid of it and get a new one but have not been able to justify getting rid of it yet.

Well this is no longer the case


Still a great bow but I found a replacement.

I dont worry about speed any more thanks to the superior knowledge shared in that other thread.
I use 2lb arrows with a kitchen cleaver for a broadhead now.
Weight is everything.
The old GT is deadly AF now..animals die before its even out of the case.

Wonder if the OP is still trying to make his decision 5 years later...


I'm still shooting the same bow as in my original post and it has killed quite a few animals since then...

2010 Judge with 60lb limbs @ 62lbs; 385grs, 302fps on my chrono. IBO was rated at 343-347 with 70lb and 350gr @ 30"DL. I have two Elite 2010 Judges with 60lbs limbs. The one above I shoot at 58lbs most of the time. The second at 62lbs set up for hogs. Both are also 28" DL.

I wouldn't buy another one. Slow was just one of this reasons but a significant one.
