I had a chance to shoot an E35 tonight. It was a 60# max, 28" draw. The finish was great on the bow. The cerakote looked very nice. However, the screw holes were rough looking. It is a shame that Elite is no longer chamfering the threaded holes after tapping them. They looked sloppy and really stood out on an otherwise flawless bow. The Winner's Choice strings looked like junk. The loop ends looked poorly served. Not impressed.
When I first held the bow, it tilted back slightly, but felt very balanced overall. The draw was not as stiff up front as prior models and seemed to hit peak weight much later in the draw cycle. I would love to see a draw force curve for this bow. The valley with the draw stops out all the way felt long to me and I'm sure the let off was high too. What really blew me away was at the shot. The bow just sits there and then gently rolls forward. Very nicely balanced. No vibration. I put about a dozen shots through it and was really pleased with it. The dealer didn't have any 28.5" or 29" mods for me to try, so I look forward to shooting one at my preferred draw length. I also would like to get the valley shorter and let off similar to DLS Rev cams. I'm sure this could be done by adjusting the stops in.
Overall, I was impressed. I feel the Energy series is a nice improvement over the Pure and Hunter. If Elite just paid attention to details with this bow, it would be a winner for sure.
