Phineas my 2012 Elite Answer
My bow specs,
Let's start off with it's looks. I ordered mine in the ninja matte black. The bow looks fantastic. The cut outs on the body are great with no tool marks and the paint finish is even across the whole bow. It also came factory with limb saver string dampeners. This bow is really done up well from the factory.
I added the black 10" stokerized stabilizer , Along with an Apache Micro Rest and a Trophyridge single pin adjustable sight.
The bow itself when I picked it up, I instantly liked the two piece wood grip.
I think that they have the best grip in the business. The bow is well balanced. When you draw it back you notice how smooth the draw cycle is. The Answers draw cycle is awesome. When you hit the back wall, it is rock solid. There is no better back wall in industry in my opinion. This bow has zero creep forward, you almost feel like you have to push it forward to let it down. Holding it at full draw for a few minutes can be done effortlessly. At release it has zero vibration and no torque left or right. There is very little noise, the targets make more noise than the bow.
I shoot my Elite Answer almost every day and the more I shoot it, the more I like it. I think the 2012 Elite Answer is one of the best bows of 2012. I can't wait until the 2013 line comes out to see if they can top the Answer.
