    Thinking about making the switch to Elite bows, more specifically the Impulse 31. Thoughts or Opinions?

    I'm not brand loyal. Have shot PSE, Mathews, Hoyt and now have an Eliteite Impulse. Liked them all. The elite is a little heavy but a great shooting bow for me. Weight means nothing to me Midwest deer hunting. It means much more out west, but I have had the elite in Idaho for four weeks over the last two years and I was fine. Can't guarantee it is the best one ever made but it is a very good one. If it feels good for you to shoot, I'd buy it.

    Elite fan here. I shoot a Hunter that is a handful of years old and shot some of last years models but couldn't force myself to trade up.

    I've had my Elite Hunter since 2012 I believe and can't get myself to switch. Their customer service is top notch as well.

    Another Elite Hunter owner here. I haven't shot anything new for a couple years but my Elite Hunter will be hard to trade - I haven't found anything that makes me want to part with $900-$1000 when, for me, the difference isn't there. I think I'd rather upgrade accessories as they continue to improve.

    Skippy - No Hoyt ?? Thought for sure you'd have to be towing the company line ?? J/K.

    I just ordered a Ritual 30. First bow I have bought in 8 years, so that's saying something. I can't wait to go pick it up next week.

    Let me know how you like it I’m trying to decide between a Mathews vertix and Elite.

    Picked up my Ritual Yesterday. Without question the smoothest drawing bow I have ever owned. What surprised me the most is actually how quiet it is without adding a bunch of string silencers. Pretty stoked about it so far!

    For my money the Vertix is the best but I did own an Impulse and really liked it overall. I just couldn't get over the grip for my taste
