Default Best short ATA bow you have shot

Looking for some input on ideas for a new bow. I was set on the DXT, but wanted to hear some experiences with other short ATA (31" or less) bows, and which ones you liked the best overall.

I've always tinkered around with short a-to-a bows, dating back to the Tech 29 and MQ32... without question, the best one I've ever handled is the Admiral.

Never thought I would be shooting short axle. I owned a DXT and like the Drenalin better. Currently shooting a 35" axle GT500. I really like this size bow. Get to short of axle like the DXT and the string angle to much for me.


Elite Z28 around 33" and that perfect.

Heard good things about the Admiral. I really want to try the X-Force Treestand (28" ATA), but am anticipating a draw cycle that would be uncomfortable at best.

I am shooting the '09 X-force Super Short (26" ata). The bow is a tack driver! I had nock pinch at first (29" draw combined with a short ata places the string on a very acute angle when fully drawn). I resolved the problem by serving both my top and lower d-loop knots in place-providing adequate room for my arrow nock. Now, the bow shoots like a dream. I look forward to taking her to Prince of Wales Island in ten days. More results pending...
