    Not going to lie, once I was ready to walk away from my Elite 32 I'd long expected I'd journey back towards a Mathews or Mission again as I have loved pretty much all their stuff over the years (I shoot em despite not planning on buying...a new bow means sacrifices or nothing else hunting related for the year so no small decision)

    The new bow Elite is offering in the Kure just has me beyond intrigued to tryout....if it lives up to even 75% of the hype and claims I might have just found my next purchase (after they're a year old most likely LOL)

    Honestly, you are cutting a hair in half anymore I think. Personal preference is nearly the only difference anymore. I don't care about speed, they're all fast enough....I don't care about ATA under say 34 but prefer shorter...and so long as you come in under 5lbs total weight I will test it out.

    Okay this tuning right on the line feature I've seen now in a few different videos is awesome.

    The new 2020 PSE’s still look to be ahead of everyone else so far this year.

    This Elite doesn’t do anything for me, but I’ve yet to shoot it or handle it either.

    Have to check out specs and designs but how so? Every PSE I've ever shot doesn't have a smooth draw cycle, but to be fair been a few years model wise (2016 or 2017 since I've shot their flagship models)

    Pse Evolve cam is the best cam in archery, maybe the best cam ever.

    Like @trial153 mentioned, go and shoot any Evolve cam PSE. They aren't the PSE of old. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I shall never nock something till I have shot it. In today's compound world I truly believe it is is splitting that final 1% of what makes the bow a bow when deciding. We truly are in a golden era of compounds IMO.

    Assuming PSE is still using the Evolve cam system in their 2020 lineup?

    Yes they are.

    I imagine they'll be using the EVO or some direct variant of it for a while with the amount of success that they've had with it.

    I don't think you can wrong with hoyt, bowtech, mathews, elite or pse...they have their differences, but they are all good bows and for hunting purposes, will all kill well.

    Nice to see a positive thread here unlike archerytalk. It seems like a very neat bow. Like how adjustable the cams are. Working class bowhunter podcast had a few elite guys talking about the bows. Not in the market for a new bow but wouldn’t mind shooting one.

    had the same thought about here vs AT. My work has this site blocked but not AT I was so surprised how quickly it got so ugly over a cool bow!

    Ya its crazy how a lot of people want new tech then get it , and they just attack it before they even hold one.
    A other thing i was surprised about was the price. 999-1099.00 msrp is impressive.

    I love my Ritual 33, great shooting bow .... Kure is suppose to make tuning easier, I'm for that .....

    Elites are great bows. I had an Energy 32 and then an Impulse 31. both really good bows. I almost went with the Kure, but opted for a mathews vertix. .happy either way

    Be careful with the kure hardware. Its real easy to strip out the screw heads. The threads are good. I have ruined mine already.
    Try to tune by just using your rest.
    If that doesn't work let the Bow Shop ruin your bows hardware for you.
