Default Mathews Switchback LD??

Do any of you own this bow or have you shot one? I went to my local bow shop and I tried the draw and Ifelt it was super smooth. I didn't shoot it as I was afraid I would fall in love with it. I am still thinking about trying one out and going ahead and getting it. The dealer at the shop said he was not too impressed with the LD as he felt Mathews came out with it in kind of a hurry, due to the biggest new thing on the bowbeing the longer draw length, not a whole lot else that was different from the 2005 Switchback. I know this was his opinion and I respected it, just curious what you all thought. Thanks for any thoughts or opinions given.

I have not shot mine yet because the dealer I ordered it from has not got it in.I talked to a poster on a different fourum that had one and absolutly
loves it!!He said that it Was the most accurate bow he had ever shot and the Quietest!!It has a 9 inch brace height,a little slower than the XT but
For the forgiveness and smoothness I will sacrifice 15fps!!He was the only
one that i have talked to that has shot one.

I shot an XT last Saturday...it's a lot better than the Outback. I love shorter bows...and vowed never to buy another bow until Mathews put a short one out. As soon as I sell my Ouback on ebay..and the local archery shop gets a 60lbs/28" in...it's mine.

My local Mathews dealer said that 50-60lbs/28" draw XT's won't be in for a few more weeks...but will have plenty 70lbs/29" by today.

I ordered the LD not the XT.The point is there is no excuse to take 3 weeks to get the bow when you are told 4 to 5 days!!!
