They keep getting shorter and "better", who's gonna come out with one less than 28" first? 26", maybe 24"? It'll be the best treestand and blind bow ever.....

Shorter ATA and dinner plate sized cams . Gotta keep the people buying new bows.
Exactly, will be the smoothest most accurate bow ever. Can't treestand hunt with anything over 30", much less something like 38"...24" axle to axle, 5.3 lb mass weight. Come on Mathews 2019.

Mathews could make one that's 10" ATA and they'd still sell a ton of them. Buyers wouldn't be able to hit the broadside of a barn with them but they would buy them up anyway.

Evidently you're talking major bow companies. Gearhead has already been noted and the things shoot great. I think the Liberty bow has a 21" ata.

Really don't care. Before "you gotta have short" I hunted with a 60" Fred Bear recurve. Later, Hoyt MagnaTec with 37 5/8" ata and later my UltraTec with 38 1/2" ata. Shortest bow I'll ever owned and is my last hunting bow, a TX4 Pearson with 33 1/2".

Gets me is people cry for shorter, lighter bows and then throw on a "ton" stabs and accessories....

I'll never buy one... and just who the hell says they are "better" ..... the best shooting bows are generally longer A to A set ups ... you dont see the top 3D or indoor shooters using these baby bows ...

The bow manufacturers and their paid shooter do, that's who. Why would anybody need anything longer or lighter? That's why nobody offers long/light hunting bows anymore I guess. Shorter and heavier is better evidently bc that's all that's available. That's why I figure it's only a matter of time before we see 24" and 6 lbs. That's why I'm still shooting a 2011 model bow....

you guys shooting long ATA bows are obviously over compensating for something.

???

Longer ata bows have proven more stable, more accurate. Cam lean is less aggravated from bow at rest to bow fully drawn.
