    i haven't heard anything, i don't have those kind of connections. I will say that I kind of expect the Pure And Pulse to be replaced with newer models. They have both been around for a few years now. I wouldn't be surprised if the Answer is replaced along with the Tour... The only bow I fully expect to see still in the lineup next year is the Hunter. I feel pretty sure the pure and pulse will be gone. and the answer and tour could go as well. I am hoping that they have the AP Back next year. I am hoping that Elite doesn't stray too far from what they have been doing so far. I wouldn't mind seeing some type of flex guard for the cables. i have shot hoyts, mathews, bear, bowtech, diamond, G5, and others, but i always keep coming back to Elite. Especially when it comes to the bows that I will be taking into the woods to hunt with. The nice valleys, solid back walls, super smooth draw cycles, and "acceptable speeds" make for bows that are very hunter friendly.

    I answer will stay for sure since its only on the 2nd year, and the tour will prob stay also. I would say the only bow changing might be the Pulse.

    I am receiving my Pulse soon and was told it was literally the last one ever made. Judge to Pulse...I wonder if it's another name change or a totally new offering.

    AP Black would lure me to a new bow this year.

    I would say the Answer stays, Hunter stays, Pulse gets split limbs hopefully beyond parallel and it gets some weight shaved off.

    X2. I love my Pulse and will keep it if nothing new is as good. I would like to see a different cable guard system and a weight shaved off but I'm not a huge fan of split limbs.

    I read on the Elite forum that the Pulse makes up only 5% of all 2013 Elite bows sold this year. And the reason the 2013 Pulse cannot be ordered anymore this year is because Elite needs to use the riser blanks for making their best selling bows, the Hunter and Answer. Assuming that's true, I say the Pulse and Pure get replaced and the Hunter and Answer carry over to the 2014 lineup.

    We will see...I know of a few guys that sold their Answers to by the new Hunter this year. I could see Elite dropping the Pure and the Pulse and adding a Answer long draw. As long as they don't change the Hunter, I don't really care what they do unless they want to extend their 30" max draw bows to 31". Elite is working on the correction to the 31" draw mod for the Hunter and should be ready this month I think. Actually I love my APS Hunters, the only thing I don't like is the white cams. I would have prefrerred Magpul Tan wheels.

    Pulse is already out. Tried to order one the other day and had to get an answer because they are no longer making the pulse.

    Maybe Elite is doing a smart thing if they are redesigning the Pulse time for test and tune and building inventory. They have listened to customer complaints in the past and a big one over the last couple years has been delivery times.

    i agree with the poor delivery time of the 2013 bows, thats why i want to get my order placed soon. i have my local Elite dealer keeping me posted and told them to make sure when they place there first order to keep me in mind.

    All I want to see from Elite would be to stop using the cable rod/string stop wedge. This is one of the worst things IMO I have seen a bow company come out with in a while. Again. This is my opinion only. A simple set screw is all that is needed. The way it is now, when you get the rod positioned where you want it, then tighten the wedge screw, the rod starts turning also. Very frustrating. Please Elite, go back to what works.

    Couldn't agree more the way it is now just sucks.

    I love my Pulse. If they do away with it I hope they release something with similar specs.
