    Yeah those two camo patterns will be big sellers I'm sure.

    Specs are a lot like the PULSE. Be interesting to see how the draw cycle is.

    Any idea on MSRP this year. Also looks like you can get the Energy in new Camo Patterns too.

    Excited to check out the 34 model. Elite makes great bows. Just not a fan of heavy bows like that that's the only downside for me.id prefer under 4 lbs or under.

    Not yet. Elite is usually around 899 in my area but I fully expect an up charge for the kuiu.

    Someone on AT said 929 where he is. Definitely under 1000.

    I'm a big fan of Elite. I just really wish they would do some new things, at least new for them that is. I'm not at all impressed with the new ones. Only two? They basically have 5 identical bows in their line up. A 31, 32, 33,34,35 ATA. Basically the same otherwise. Very vanilla IMO.

    Not too impressed really going to the 6" brace height just to get to 340fps doesn't seem worth it. Kuiu will be nice on these bows. Now if you could give me a Synergy's 33.5ata, the victory grip, kuiu camo, get 340fps with the 7" brace height then I'd be in for that bow.

    They look good but they'd really have to go some to top the E35, smoothest bow I ever shot. I don't see myself giving up the 35 for a long time.

    I've owned two e35s, an e32 and currently have a victory and prime impact. I think the prime is smoother than all of them.

    My son shot the new 34" today. He said it felt typical Elite in the smooth draw and solid back wall, except there was a little hump felt just at the end of the draw before it breaks over. We both shoot '13 Answers and have always loved our bows. He is hooked on this new one and plans on selling his Answer and buying a new Elite for Christmas. I haven't shot the new Elite but don't really see anything that makes me want to dump Vlad the Impaler (nickname for my bow). :)

    I like all the spec except the mass weight. Overly heavy bare. Not really seeing a reason to dump my e32. But that may change...

    I've heard nothing but good things about the shootability of the Prime. Might have to give one a try.

    They shoot like a dream. If only they were a tad lighter and I could get one via Amazon.

    It's also hard for me to believe a low 30s bow can weigh nearly as much as my Oneidas...

    They are a bit on the heavy end but pretty much on par with the elite weights. And I actually don't mind the weight at all

    I'm sure there is a good tech explanation (stability, shock absorbtion or some such)...just would love to move to a lighter bow and really liked much about their bows.

    I've got over 18 ounces of weights on my target rig. Pretty used to it now. Maybe if I had a much longer hike to my stand or I spot and stalked it would be different

    Dealer here in Missouri said $900.

    I'm thinking about trying a 35 with the Victory grip myself. I love my 35, best shooting bow I've ever owned and I've had a lot.

    Lot of people wishing the Victory grips were available on the camo version. I can't understand why they didn't ...production nightmare however it would have been a cool option
