I found an Elite answer in the specs that i have been wanting for years,I should have it in approx 10 days and plan on setting it up....with aluminum arrows and a 125 or 150 gr fixed broadhead for hunting.

I purchased half a dozen 2216 last fall and when I was sighting a bow in with them,I had two of them bend after going through my beat up target and hitting the solid ground behind my target.So I am leaning towards ordering some xx75 2219 this time.I put a few carbon arrows through the same target the same day,wiped them off,flexed them and then went and killed deer with them.It has been at least 13 or 14 years since I shot aluminums.I believe going with a 2219 this time will add a bit more toughness.How many of you are shooting an aluminum arrow for hunting?

This is a picture of one of them,It was not bent as bad as this when it went through target.I was just having a bit of fun afterwards,However the arrows were not fixable after the first shot going through target....

I have an answer that I am contemplating selling. Its a pretty sweet bow but I'm getting the itch for something new. Maybe the new Ritual but I don't know if I want to wait for the leftys to come out or not.

What's the specs on your LH answer?..I will buy the ritual...but not until summertime...I like picking up used Left handed bows this time of year.The last few years I waited 3-4 months for "new" models of bows...screw that...Grizz

The Answer is a sweet shooter. I'm doing a re-do with my 2013. I got some shoulder problems so I got a set of 60lb Barnsdale limbs on order. So I thought why not have my riser re-done in ASAT camo. Catfish is going to do the Kolorfussion. Still waiting on limbs and still Hunting with it till mid Feb in NJ.

That will look great.I would have already ordered the xx75's but amazon is currently out of stock and I am not willing to pay shipping on them from Lancaster...I am hoping they are back in stock soon,I may order some more 2216 and a dz 2219 as well.I am burnt out with building carbons and want to set up a few bows with aluminums...Grizz

Love my 2013 Elite Answer, too! I had a Prime Centergy ordered new last year and sold it by November. Got a Halon 32-6 after that, but blew through 2 deer in 3 days using the Elite Answer with the same arrow on both deer because I never doubt the outcome. I buy backup bows for fun, but I am keeping that Elite Answer til the limbs fall off. It is so smooth pulling and reliable. Does my heart good to see you guys are still shooting this great bow!

I am actually more excited to get this bow then the bm 32 that will be here this week, and other then a few bows so far this year.I really am not overly impressed again with "new" bows.I will be more then happy with what I already have, if I do not buy anymore this year...Grizz

I ordered 5" black arrow wraps from onestringer,I will be using either 3-4" black feathers on these arrows.I wanted to try something different and think the black will look great on the xx75 2219 aluminums.I am just deciding on which broadheads to setup with this bow...Grizz

I hunted 2 seasons ago in Texas with xx75 2117s. Shooting a #53 PSE Phenom and I blew through 3 hogs, an Aoudad, and a WT buck. I went with Exodus and Slick Tricks.
You’re going to love how quiet they make a bow and how hard they hit an animal.
