I had my spot Hogg sight on mine but put my hha slider back on. When you get used to one pin it's hard to use multiple pins sometimes.

So I went to the shop. The new elite is tuned as well as it can be. And the rest sits way to the left on the shelf. All lined up, the bow just plain shoots left. And doing some looking, most sights will not adjust left far enough to catch up. If that was not enough, it is tweaked enough that the string doesn't even line up with the grip.

All in all, I am pretty much hating this piece of garbage. Don't know if the store will take it back, so I will probably try selling it.

You need to go to a different bow shop. I bet they don't know how to set it up.

Take to a different shop and have them paper tune it. If things are not lined up it won't shoot right. Have them paper tune it and unless its shooting clean holes through the paper don't leave. This doesn't sound like it's close to center shot or timed right at all. If you bow is shooting good and set up right your sight pins will be right over your arrow shaft. Wrong arrows or not set up right you will be all over the place. Get center shot and timed and you get your left to right a whole lot closer with cutting the shafts to where they need to be or add or take away tip weight.
I am sorry that you are not happy right now. I feel bad.

I would really like to see some pictures of how they set you up on this bow.

I agree with Chris, it doesn't sound like your bow is set up right. I would take it to a different archery shop or range and get some advice. There's no way you should run out of adjustment with your sight pins, somethings not right.

+2 on what Chris & BB are saying.  It sounds like this shop doesn't know what they are doing.  The tech should paper tune the bow, then give it to you, have you shot it and do some final adjustments.  What you are saying is not right, and it can be fixed.  don't give up on the bow just yet, Elite makes some fine bows, and once it's set up right, you are going to love it.  I have one, and I am extremely happy with it.  I have an Elite Energy 32, and I am very happy with this set up.

That is what has me so pissed. It is paper tuned. Two techs and I shot it and got it punching bullet holes. The slave strings are balanced, and we tried tweaking everything else. With it all shooting right in that front, the rest still sits on the left side of the arrow shelf, and with the true glow out of adjustment it still shoots 3 inches left at 20 yards. Mind you it shoots a super tight group, but it still just feels like I picked a junk bow. I might go in there and bolt my stuff on to a twin bow and see if I got a bow with a defective limb.

Can you post pictures of your set up? Or I can pm you my email or cell phone. I might just that now.

So here are some pics of the elite option six. One is an over view, the other is an attempt at showing how out of line this thing has to be to be paper tuned.

Maybe you should try looking at a couple of archery forums to see if anyone else has experienced this same type problem. I would also contact Elite customer service and explain the problems your having, and possibly send them pictures. They may ask you to return the bow to them for inspection.

The buss cable for your rest looks like it has a lot of slack. If you draw without first raising it will it raise on its own?
I will study your pics a little more and do some more pondering.

I also saw that the cable guard might need to be moved to the right. That's kind of a new thing for Elite. I strongly suggest taking that to someone else and I too suggest you call Elite. Like I said earlier they have a real good warranty and usually have real good customer service.
