    2017 Elite Emerge.

    I'm in love. First two shots at 20 yards I stacked them. It's an amazing bow. The guy who was helping me site in was great. He's like, if you were shooting this league today, you'd be beating most the guys. I have a hard time shooting in front of others, so I was glad I was able to hold it together.

    I recommend it to all. Currently set at 37# and I have more penetration then I did with my Craze at 43#. I'll be bumping it to 40 after I shoot it some more.

    But, love at first site!

    Oh, and I switched from Beman ICS arrows to these Easton Carbon Aftermath. I'll have to see how they work out. Seem to fly just fine.

    Good choice! I got it at cost as I was able to get a nice coupon at an outdoor expo. So, they custom ordered one in for me.

    Thanks all! I switched from Mathews - big difference IMO. This bow isn't jumpy at all like my Craze was.

    Thank you!

    Now I need to find a quiver I like. Almost hate to add one, but it's easier in long run.

    It's thinner, and I've always been used to the thicker ones, but I have no issues with it. I can grip it nicely and it feels good. I actually think I like it better than the others. It lets me have my hand up and can easily balance the bow.

    The elite quiver with the triangle mount to the risers is about as nice a quiver you will find. I like them as much as my tight spots. They come in one and two piece mounts. If you plan on taking your quiver off at the stand then get the one piece. They also come in four or six arrow sizes. Sometimes on eBay Whitneys archery discounts them.
