Also interested in your replys here.
I have the same draw length as you, and I am around 5'6, I tried them all and because of the string angle Longer axle to axle and feel .I went with the Ultra elite with the xt2000 limbs and cam&half plus 2.0 @60# brace height is 7 1/4 and I am getting 293 fps. This combination has worked very well for me. I mostly shoot 3D.I am contemplating purchasing a new target bow. I have it boiled down to a Hoyt Ultra Elite or a Pro Elite. I was planning on using 3000 limbs with Spiral-X cams. The Ultra Elite would have a brace height (7.5”) a little shorter than the Pro Elite (8.5”). My question is the difference between them as related to my draw length which is relatively short at 27"? My inclination is to go with the Ultra Elite because of the shorter brace height relative to my draw length.
Comments and suggestions please
+1 I agree with you 100%Here is my $0.02 having owned Proelites and ultraelites with both 3000 and 2000 limbs and having the same DL (27") as you.
There is absolutely zero doubt in my mind that the ultra with 2000 limbs is easier for a person with a short draw to hold steady (which is the ultimate goal right?). This combo has perfect geometry (45 degree string angle) for the 27" draw and I believe that the ultra balances better in general. It sounds counterintuitive at first, but the shorter bow will be easier for you to shoot well at our draw length. Also, the brace height part of the equation is not an absolute, but rather relative to your draw length.........so a person with a long draw gets more benefit from the increase in BH than you will.
I had significant issues shooting both bows with 3000 limbs as well as I thought I should be able to. After getting the 2000 limbs I immediatly increased my scores and confidence in the bows and now my ultra with 2000s is my favorite bow hands down because it holds so well. Most of the mantras we all think are absolute truths about target bows (like longer ATA and BH) apply less and less as draw length gets shorter.
Anyway, my vote is for the ultra for sure, and test shoot one with 2000 limbs if at all possible.
