Default Elite Bows

I am thinking about buying me a new bow this year. I am really wanting to try out the Elite Energy 35. Is there anyone in here that sells them. I looked on their web site and the closet dealer to me shows Willis. Any input on the Energy 35.

C & S Archery in Conroe/Montgomery carries Elite's in stock. The dealer in Willis doesn't. The E35 is one of if not my favorite shooting Elite of all time. I have owned just about every model since they started in 2006. Very stable shooting platform and pretty quick as well.

Had good experiences at C and S! Willis not so much but it's been years since I have been there.

I love my Elite but bought it used from a fellow TBHer.

I don't have a 35 but I have the synergy and it has a great back wall, very smooth, no vibration and accurate. It's my 1st elite and I love it.

I have an elite energy 32. It is 65 pounds. It is very smooth. As I shoot it more and more I find that it lacks the speed and kinetic energy of my last two bowtechs. I am a bit disappointed by the drop at 40 yards.

This elite is 66 pounds when torqued down. My Bowtech was 70. I am surprised by the difference in 4lbs.

The elites aren't speed bows. They aren't slow, but they won't keep up with high IBO bows from bowtech, hoyt, matthews, etc. But they are definitely smoother, I love my 2013 elite pure.

I like mine too, but seeing the arch in the arrow at 40 yards is crazy.

I can honestly say that other than the conquest 2 that mathews used to make the E35 is the best shooting bow i have ever owned.. I have one that shoots lights out and another that just shipped from the factory today..

Elites are fantastic bows but not speed bows. They are super smooth, easy to hold and very forgiving to shoot. If you are comparing an elite to a speed bow then yes they are slower. But, I can't imagine they are way slower than the flagship Mathews or Hoyt bows. All that being said, I don't care about speed. I carry a rangefinder and have a bunch of pins. Give me a yardage and a pin and I hit really well. Doesn't matter to me whether the arrow is going 260 fps or 290 fps.

I shot the Hoyt, Bowtech, Mathews, and Elite. The Elite was much smoother. It lacks Bowtech speed, but it shoots like a dream.

I've shot all the new Mathews, Hoyt's, PSE's and one of the new Elite's in the past couple months. I was certain that shooting the Elite would convince me into buying one with all the TBH'er hype that I've read over the past several years. With that said, I was extremely disappointed especially in the draw cycle so it was my least favorite out of all of them.

They are nice shooting bows. I didn't like the big "dump" into the wall. I ended up setting the draw stops shorter where the draw stopped as soon as it hit the high let off zone and it was like shooting a different bow. I did not buy it however. Came close, but not... Elite does have the transferrable lifetime warranty and the Elite Promise going for it.

I bought a PSE Vendetta DC. About $400 less and honestly a smoother draw cycle.

If I was in the market right now, I'd probably buy the PSE Bow Madness 32.

Just curious what model Elite bow you test drove ? was it properly tuned ?

After probably reading 5,000 + reviews on Elite bows since 2008 , you are the first person I've ever seen to rank the draw cycle dead last amongst the bows you shot . Drawing a 65# bow feels like you're pulling back 55# , and holding < 5#

the smooth draw cycle , solid back wall , and hold are what set this bow apart from others

if you didn't care for it, then I guess the smooth draw wasn't appealing to you

everyone has a different feel for bows and you have to shoot what's best for you

what bow did you end up buying ?

It was the E32 or the E35 and I'm assuming it was tuned. When I said I was disappointed and ranked it dead last is bc I wasn't overly impressed in the draw cycle like people state on here in every post. Then add in the speed factor with it being among one of the slower bows or may have been the slowest. Throw in what I call the "bogus" warranty (won't go into detail here but you know what I'm referring to) and it puts it last on my list.

Actually, I'm still happy with what I've got so I walked out with nothing. I just was thinking I would fall in love with the Elite which I did not.

Now if you wanna talk about Fajita or Chili Seasoning. You got it going on and I would highly recommend everyone trying it. We absolutely love it but some may not. In fact, I need to place another order.

Exact reason why you should test ride all of them and not just choose bow "X". Like above I'm surprised you didn't like the draw cycle, but again bows feel different to everyone. Good luck and congrats on your new bow!

I hear ya brother and do concur that Elite bows are definitely not the fastest nor do they claim to be

Ive never been concerned with speed since I often stroll down "Memory Lane" when my 1990 PSE Mach Flight 4R , 28.5" / 82 # , 4" over-draw , 43" ATA, would spit 24" Easton 2213 Super Lites at a blistering 246 fps I killed a pirogue full of game back in the day and thought my bow was fast

Speed is nice but I'll choose a smooth draw and hold all day long over an extra 5 to 15 fps .

Rgarding that chili and fajita stuff , I hear it's pretty darn good

My e35 at 78# was only 12 fps slower than my Hoyt nitrum 34 at 80#. 12 fps is nothing. Why would it surprise you that a slower moving arrow loses KE and drops a little faster? That said my elite only dropped like 1.5 inches more than my hoyt at 40 yards and the KE lost will never be noticed.

I have an E35. Its a tack driver when I do my part. What set it apart was the lack of handshock at the shot. I've had 5 prior Elites, but this one is by far the nicest, quietest, and easy shooting bow of the bunch. If you shoot one, be prepared to buy it that day.

I did not expect the speed to be that different but it was. The difference is 20fps. 28" draw. I love how smooth it is and sacrificed speed.

So I went back today and shot the E35 up against the NoCam. The E35's draw cycle seems to have a steady pull all the way back where the NoCam was very easy until you hit the hump. It's back wall was solid where the NoCam was a little spongey. It did have a little more vibration than the NoCam but not much. If I was really in the market for a new bow, I would definitely consider it but I don't think you could go wrong with either bow. I have yet to shoot a new bow that I feel is that much of an upgrade (money) to what I currently shoot.
