Default Switchback LD

Does anyone own this new bow from Mathews? I am interested in buying a bow, and I know that this is just about the only bow they offer that will provide a long enough draw length. I know this goes up to 32". There are a few nice -looking Hoyt bows that could work for me as well. They all look good in specifications, and the LD is the only one I have held in person. I really liked it, but am interested if anyone has some information or opinions that I could use when going to the pro shop. Thanks

I don't have one but I can tell you it's one sweet bow. I know that it would be a great choice. You would have a bow a life time.

I have shot one very nice bow like the switchback, smooth, quiet, no recoil and forgiving.

I do own one and I can say that it is the sweetest shooting bow and one of the most accurate bows I have ever shot!!If you are wanting a speed deamon it is not the one for you.But if you want a dependable accurate
and unbelivably Quiet bow this on IS for you!I hve a 30 inch draw.You
will get about 20fps more at 32 inches depending on your arrow.

I think there's a Hoyt Trykon LD too with a 9" brace height.

Thanks to all who replied
To be sure, I will need to do some research, but more importantly some shooting and experimenting. No bow is perfect for everyone, and they are all good enough to kill deer I would say. I'll be buying one this spring though, I hope. Good luck to whoever else is as well.
