It was a great little park but they did a lot of sharpshooting to manage the CWD on that park. There are better public land opportunites IMO.

RE: Switchback Set Up

It's easy to get a little more length, you can use a little longer string loop, you can overrotate the cam a little and it won't affect performance. What you don't want is to be too long.

The wall on the Switchback is plenty solid. It is really more of making a distinction between it and the Outback, which because the draw stop has a more solid feel.
