    You saw the subject what are you using and what are your arguments for which one is “better”

    and no saying it depends on the shooter [-X [-X ;)

    DXT for hunting because of the short ATA
    DLD if you like the length of the bow. Its awesome as well! ( 3-D ) Rock solid wall, smooth as silk [=}=]

    My thoughts for a hunting bow are the exact opposite. With most hunting shots (opportunities), the conditions are usually less than perfect….and factors like odd positions, angles, poor footing, cold, bulky clothing, etc can easily cause our form to break down. Bow geometry alone (mostly length and string angle) on a longer bow will definately help indicate if your form has broken down under those types of conditions.
    ….so the LD is my choice of the two.

    You can always split the difference and go with a 33″ Dren :whistle

    You’re asking with this topic what’s better between two different bows with 10″ of different ATA length…I’m going to go with the Drenalin since its in between. [=}=]

    For me it’s impossible to pick one or the other, cause they serve totally different purposes for me. [=}=]

    Well the ATA , you would think is better, but when in a blind, or a tight spot, or a stand that you did not build, The DXT is a better choice. I have shot all three and for a short bow The DXT breaks all the rules …. Get the string angle out of your head ,its not that big of a deal…

    I bet you can get the DLD in anywhere that you can get the DXT in, if not, well you should trim some limbs… :^O

    They are not really two bows that you can compare. Not apples to apples. People who want a short ATA bow will shoot the DXT, and people who want a longer ATA bow will choose the LD. Also, target shooters and 3D shooters will favor the LD.

    :^O The heck it’s not. That’s like saying “so what if those shoes are 3 sizes too small and your toes are curled up, it’s not that big a deal”. #-o :^O When I shot the DXT, that was the only factor in it feeling uncomfortable to shoot……it was good in every other regard except that pesky string angle…….it simply didn’t fit, therefore a very BIG deal. The LD fits. [=}=]

    FWIW, the Mathews dealer I spoke to today said his Mat rep said the LD has been their top selling model of the year thus far.

    I’m torn between the Dren and Dren LD (I shoot a 30-inch draw length, 50-60 lbs.) Would someone please explain what a longer ATA provides? Why do target shooters prefer a longer ATA?

    I care about accuracy, smooth draw, solid backwall and a kinder valley than my LX (which, if I don’t hold perfect back tension, will roll-over if given half a mm – I actually hate it).

    Thank you very much for the help.

    I hunt and dont shoot 3D, so I chose the DXT. The short ATA helps me out in my tree stand since I dont stand to shoot and helps in small blinds. If I was using the bow for something other than hunting, more than likely it would have been the LD.
