• Mark, thanks for the great review. I shot you an email. Get back to me when you have a chance.

      Got it, and back at you.

    I’m not sure if you are the best salesman or if you somehow have found and use only the best hunting gear out there. You have me wanting to switch from my Hoyt Vector to the Elite. One question and concern I have is the lack of a roller guard. Have you had any issues with the slide style string Gaurd? Years ago I had a bow that had a cable slide and it made some noise when cold. Also, congrats on all the success you are having in the outdoor industry. Hard work pays off

      That comment had me laughing, Mike. I don’t think of myself as a salesman, but I do research gear quite a bit and enjoy sharing what works for me. I’ll say this, just like I said in the article’s conclusion — don’t take my word for it, go shoot one for yourself and decide.

      I haven’t had any issues with the cable slide at all. A couple of generations ago I did see some chatter (on a small percentage of bows), but this new one (complete redesign and different materials) has been butter.

    Amen to that. My go to bow is an Energy 35. Back up is a Hoyt Carbon Element. The E35 is just plain easier to shoot. All aspects. The Hoyt is shorter and lighter but harder to hold at full draw. The longer ATA of the E35 along with the forgiving draw cycle make it so much easier to use at the range or hunting. No contest. But you have to have a backup bow!!

      The E35 is a phenomenal bow, JT. I am really digging this Synergy, but my E35 will not be going anywhere.
