    Depends on your draw length. If you’re over 30″, I’d go with the LD. If you’re under 30, XT.

    Fot a LD this year!I have a 30 inch draw.I Think this bow is Awesome!!!
    Not as fast as the Xt but so quiet and accurate unbelievable!!! =D/>” title=”Applause” />  <img src= :thumbup ;)

    Forgot to mention the LD 9 inch brace height which makes it a very forgiving bow! I need all the help I can get in the woods :thumbup

    I thought the LD was basically an XT with a long draw. Am I wrong?

    You show your draw length as 28″, the XT might be the best fit but if I were you I would try the LD as well.

    I have an ’05 Switchback and an ’04 LX.Right now I’m not looking for a new bow,but if I was it would be a switchback XT.The reason,I only shoot informally at atrgets and some 3-D targets.I mainly hunt and I really like the short ATA on a hunting bow.JMO [=}=]

    I voted for the XT for you. But after thinking about it, I might have been to fast. If you are only 15 with a 28 DL, you might out grow the XT to fast. If you are spouting like a weed, you might consider the LD or even an 05 SB.
