All-new for 2015, the Synergy is the ultimate example of Elite Archery’s dedication to “Shootability.”
Before we get into the specifics of the Synergy, let’s talk about shootability for a minute. Ask a dictionary to define the word and you’re going to have trouble. Elite created the term shootability to define what sets their bows apart from the competition. Is it a marketing strategy? Sure. But, having shot Elite for years now, I can say that the claims about shootability really do matter. The shootability of Elite bows have made me a more effective bowhunter.
Why “Shootability” Matters
Shootability begins with the bow’s draw cycle. When compared to the competition, the Synergy will hit peak weight later in the draw cycle and spend less time at peak weight throughout the cycle. So if you’re shooting a 60-pound bow, you won’t be pulling 60-pounds right when you begin to draw, and you won’t be pulling 60-pounds for a very long time as you draw. Pound-for-pound, the Synergy is one of the easiest bows to draw – a fact that matters a great deal when you’ve been sitting in your treestand for hours upon hours in the cold and.
Shootability doesn’t stop when you reach full-draw. Elite bows have an incredibly solid “back wall”, thanks to dual limb stops. This solid back wall helps shooters use consistent and repeatable shooting form and anchor points, which leads to consistency and accuracy downrange. Elite bows also have less holding weight at full-draw, as well as a generous “dwell zone”. Put simply, Elite bows are easier to hold at full-draw while you wait for that buck to take the last step needed before you have a clear shot. And if you do happen to let the string creep forward a little bit, the forgiveness of the “dwell zone” means that the bow isn’t going to try and jump forward out of your hands immediately.
Now that we’ve described what shootability is, and how it helps bowhunters be more successful, you can begin to understand what makes the Synergy – the ultimate example of shootability – such a great bow.
