Default Mathews draw lengths?

I'm looking at a Switchback XT which is 26" DL ( online purchase, can't try it ) but I now shoot a bowtech at 26 1/2" and was wondering if Mathews bows tend to be right on or a little longer or shorter as some other makers do ?

They will be close enough that twists in the cable will get you where you need.

Depending on the draw length, SBs run between 1/2 to 3/4" more than what is posted on the cams. This is about average among manufacturers. The best I've seen is Merlin and the new Hoyts. The worst I've seen will remain unnamed but did run 2 1/2" longer than specified.

This DL problem is why I designed a new tool for Dealers around the country. DL measurements is just one of many tests/checks/functions the tool allows to be performed.

just asking but why would you want to go with a SB when you already have what could quite possibly be the best bow for your DL

I shoot a SB and a Trykon. The SB is 28" and the Trykon is 28 1/2".
I have to agree w/ Len.
I can't offer an explanation.
