My first bow was one made of a tall stick that I found in my Grandma’s backyard and some dental floss. Though imprecise, it was a great time. Now that I’ve grown up, I see truly see the value in technological advancements. How far we’ve come in bow design. The latest in this lineage of ever-improving bows comes from Elite Archery. If you’ve been deliberating on which is the best target bow, Elite says that the jury has returned. New for 2023, this is the Verdict.
