Bow Review: Elite impulse 34

Thought it would be a cool idea to post up a quick bow review of a new purchase.

Long story short I had a good excuse to pick up a new toy ie broken bow. I ended up ordering an Elite Impuple 34 as the specs looked good and liked the idea of an easy to shoot bow.



I was a bit apprehensive to buy an elite due to the slow speed everyone talks about but the Impulse 34 is far from slow. At 70lb shooting a 440gr arrow approx 290 fps. Speed comes from a 6 inch brace high and slightly more aggressive cam compared to the older Elites.

I chucked my old sight and quiver on the bow with a new Hamskea limb activated rest. Arrows are Goldtip kinetic pierce 300s which are super slim at 4.22mm.

The bow was setup just prior to the NZBS tournament last weekend and was able to test it out over the weekend. Overall awesome shooting bow with the best groups I've shot for ages. Hardhitting, quiet, no hand shock and accurate is a good summary. Looking forward to getting it out on some game!

Only down side is that is has a decent hump prior to full draw but not a real biggy after getting used to the bow.

Couple of pics











Oh and awesome camo  Cool

Nice bow. How does it feel on the shot?
  

Genesis 27:3 Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.

Really nice mate, just shots an arrow and nothing else really happens. Balance is average but that is expected with quiver and no stabiliser

Bodnik Bows Slick Stick
45#@28"
58in

Had it for a couple of weeks and enjoying the speed and very light weight.

Also grooving to the "hunting" finish, matte and a slightly rough feel to it. Wink



  

Hunt more - your going to spend more time 6ft under than 6ft above

Looks nice! 58" is pretty short for a longbow. Still pretty stable? Hope you take out some great game with it!

Thanks Radam, was shooting a 68in Ragim Wolf before the Slick Stick and, at least for me, the SS is faster, quieter and more accurate. Apparently they can pull to 30+!
