Elite Archery has announced it's 2014 bow line-up.
It offers four base models so far and three of these bows are totally new designs.
One again, Elite has offered quality not quantity and seems to have responded positively to market and dealer requests.
The 'Energy' makes an impressive return in the form of two models; the 'Energy 32' (31 3/4" ATA) and the Energy 35 (34 3/4" ATA).
Both the bow hunter and 3D/ Field shooter will be smiling about these bows.
A short draw version; the 'Energy 35 ENS' with ENS Cams, will suit archer's with DLs from 26.5" down to 24.5".
Also, a bow dedicated to the Female archer is offered - the 'Spirit' (31 7/8" ATA).
This bow is available in Ninja black, the three camos and all the four target colours.
It's weighs a mere 3.9 lbs and has a friendly brace height of 7".
If the 'Spirit' lives up to it's IBO rating, as the 2013 bows did, then a 26" DL archer shooting 40 - 45 lb, can expect to be shooting a 5 gpp arrow at the 280 - 285 fps mark.
This bow is offered in 40, 50 and 60 lb peak weights as well as a 30 and 45 lb peak too!
The Tour remains, and so it should. ESX and Tour Cams cover the DL range from 32" down to 27".
My fingers are crossed for the release of a 37" Axle to Axle bow at the ATA Show.
Noteable features for Elite 2014 are:
The same comfortable torque-free grip and solid back-wall, that Elite bows are reknowned for, still remain.
The new 'Riser Cage' riser is featured on all bows except the 'Tour'.
Winners Choice Strings come standard but now use the new BCY 'X' material (not available from BCY yet).
Realtree Xtra Camo is now available on all bows except the 'Spirit' and the Realtee AP Camo has been dropped.
Target Anodize Lime GREEN is now offered on the 'Energy 35' and the 'Tour'; I'm excited about that!
It looks like Elite fans are in for a great 2014!
