    Elite 32

    I've narrowed my new bow choices to two. I've shot a ton of bows and I love the Prime Defy but I'm not buying it until I shoot the Elite 32. Problem is none of my shops have them. Don't know when they'll get them. On top of that I keep reading the 32 has a stiff draw cycle. I'm wondering if I'm waiting for nothing. Is the draw cycle stiff for an Elite or stiff when compared to other bows?

    I didn't think that it was stiff at all. Very similar to the prime PCX draw with a bit more valley in them. Once you shoot one you will have a hard time choosing which one to buy.

    That decision may very well come down to the grip. If you don't like the Prime rubber grip, take a few shots with it off before you decide. I believe most were saying it was stiffer than the E35 shooting them side by side.

    Haven't shot the 32 but own a Defy. So glad I bought it just a really nice bow. My GT500(which I love) hangs on a hanger in the basement.

    There's no problem with the draw cycle. It's quite smooth actually. A few 60 lb limb guys on here tried pulling back 70 lb E32s and decided the 32 had a stiff draw cycle. It's a myth. I'm glad I didn't listen to this and shot the 32.

    If you used crosshairs to aim and shoot it, it wasn't an archery kill. A bow doesn't have a trigger guard. Keep crossguns out of archery seasons.

    Just changed the mods on my 32 first pull not much different than my 35. Maybe the 32 is a tad stiffer on the draw, and that is being generous. All else the same. Both are set at 55#s.
