I shot the Energy 35 today and wow!

The bow was quiet, awesome draw and solid back wall. There was virtually no hand vibe even without a stabilizer. Id love to get one in target black with 60 lb limbs.

Great bow...I highly recommend.

I would love to have one of the new 2014 Elite Energy 32's. Wished they made a 30" ATA...but oh well. The 32 will do...lol. I'm a PSE & Hoyt guy. But the Elites have really impressed me and now with the Energy 32. I may have to get one. I was wanting a Bowtech Assassin...but not sure now.

I bought Dixie's E35 that he had on page 1. I've had it long enough now to get a preliminary feel for the bow.

Overall, it's a great looking bow. Elite has been making some crazy good looking finishes on bows. If it shot as good as it looked, I would be extremely happy. Right now, I'm not unhappy with how it shoots, but I'm not WOW'ed or super impressed either. I have a 12" stabilizer out front with about 4 oz of weight. I can tell you that this bow needs weight in the back for sure. Even with just 4 oz out front, it wants to nose dive. I put a short back bar on it with some heavier weight, and it made it feel and hold absolutely crazy solid.

I've not shot it any since I put the backbar on there...so that may clean up a lot of the wide and jerky float pattern I've got with just the 12" 4 oz up front. Right now the bow is setting at about 7 lbs fully setup. It's quiet...but not quiet as some of the other bows I've heard and shot. And it's smooth, but not as smooth as the Strother Moxie and Hope. I will put it through the paces with different weights and see if that makes a difference. This bow doesn't have a whole lot of cam lean to it; typical of a 2 track binary, but with a little tweaking it shoots good through paper.

I liked the E35 and I think Elite has hit a home run with the Energy models. I did find the bow on the top heavy side as I find several others on the market. This is easily corrected with voo doo stabiliztion.

If you notice in the pic I posted of the E35 I was running a 15" back bar with 24 ounces of weight and 33" front bar with 4 ounces. Sounds like a lot wieght but the bow was balanced and held very well and maybe, just maybe could have used even more weight on it! Crow I hope the bow treats you very well! Go slay some foam!

That's what I was thinking too...needs a lot of weight in the back for sure. One of the guys at the ASA shoots I saw, has different sizes of sockets for weight on his bow...he said he wasn't going to pay that kind of money for screw in weights and had came up with a long bolt and a bunch of sockets. LOL. I guess anything will work..weight is weight, no matter what it is. I need a longer front bar on mine but all I have is left over from the Bow Novice setup. Haven't broke down and bought a longer bar. I wasn't exactly sure if I was going to shoot many tourneys this year or what. So I didn't wanna jump head long into buying a bunch of stuff. The E35 reminds me a lot of the Mathews Conquest 4...in how it needs weight in the back and very little up front. I drove myself bonkers trying to figure the C4 out and eventually gave up on it because it was pointless in dumping $400+ into a bow novice setup to try and win $250-300 lol.

I've never been a big fan of light weight bows unless I'm on an elk hunt where you carry the bow a whole more than you shoot it! I always add weight to any bow I shoot. My hunting bow even has a back bar, and I need to add more weight to it!

You're right about the manufacturers of the weights, they think very highly of them! In 28 ounces of B-stinger weights I've got over a $180.00 in them and need to add some more!

The guy with the sockets on his bow, was he shooting Hunter class? Robert Monroe?
