Default question for mathews bow owners

I'm considering buying a new bow, and i have it narrowed down to two choices, either the mathews dxt or the mathews switchback. for any of you who shoot these bows, what are their good points/bad points? also, the dxt is only 29" axle to axle. is it true that shorter bows are not as accurate? thanks for your help guys

yes i have shot them both, and as for their performance on the range, i seemed to shoot better with the switchback. then again, the dxt seemed to be smoother drawing and shooting. so i don't know its a close race, which is why i asked for things you like or dislike about each bow. hopefully your opinions will help me decide. thanks for replying guys

I honestly haven't shot either bow. But if I were where you are, I'd get the one that feels better. You should end up shooting better with that bow.
Good luck
